Afghan gov't not in hurry to ink security pact with U.S.:spokesman

KABUL, July 9 - The Afghan government is not in a hurry to ink a security pact with the United States and has, however, linked signing the controversial security agreement with Washington to ensuring durable peace in the conflict-ridden country, the presidential spokesman said Tuesday.

"Afghanistan would like to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) with the U.S. provided that the agreement guarantees a united Afghanistan with a strong unitary system and a capable security force.

The BSA must ensure peace, security and strengthen our economy in Afghanistan," said spokesman Aimal Faizy.

The presidential spokesman made the remarks in reaction to U.S. President Barack Obama's the so-called "zero option" to withdraw all American forces from Afghanistan by the end of 2014.

He also noted that the people of Afghanistan will take the final decision with regard to inking the security pact with the United States through a traditional Loya Jirga or grand assembly of elders and chieftains.

Describing the U.S. decision as a pressure against the Afghan government, he stated that the government of Afghanistan is not in a hurry to sign the controversial agreement, noting the agreement should ensure the benefit of both the countries.

However, he said that the United States can ink the security pact with the next Afghan government which comes through voting.

It is worth mentioning that Afghan President Hamid Karzai revealed days ago that the United States wanted to ink the agreement within three months, possibly next October.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
