Afghanistan suspends security talks with U.S.

Afghanistan has suspended security talks with the United States, Afghan President Hamid Karzai's office said Wednesday.

"In view of the contradiction between acts and the statements made by the United States of America in regard to the Peace Process, the Afghan government suspended the negotiations," his office said.

Washington has been negotiating a bilateral security agreement with Afghanistan which would dictate the terms of an extension for U.S. troops past 2014 and could provide the basis for any future NATO role.

    4 US soldiers killed in Afghanistan. How long shall we continue bleeding and wasting our national treasure on the madness created by our previous rulers and allowed to continue??

    "US to jold direct talks with Taliban for ending the war" news. Where else to go?
    The Taliban offered to hand over Osama Bin Laden to Bush twice and that man rejected letting this country deeper into the quagmire. Crimes of that regime that history would never forgive or forget.

    It is the MO of the US to protract wars like they are doing in Syria by aiding the FSA and others like them @ saywhat. All for their own benefit. One only needs to look at Governments tried and true handbook (false flag) on invasion and occupation of countries.

    You just carried a headline yesterday stating, "Afghan troops take over security." Today you headline reads, "Afghanistan suspends security talks with US." Okay, so what is the big deal ? The solution is simple. Wrap this up right now. Pull all of our troops out of there and let them have their land back. They are obviously very displeased with our services, so why keep trying. For some reason the Afghan government is not wanting the war with the taliban to end. Why else would they object to us talking to them ?

    The Karzai govt installed and kept propped up by us is not a national govt or carries popular support. Karzai family & the regime have an agenda of their own.
    Now they contend that its Afghans who should lead the talks not US.
