Afghan defense and interior ministry officials said Sunday that the step by US military has disturb the Afghan national security forces routine operations.

While speaking during the national security council meeting chaired by president Hamid Karzai, defense and interior ministry officials said that the US military in a number of caes, has stopped fuel delivery and supply, and support services to some military units.

The national security council of Afghanistan reviewed the reports presented by defense and interior ministry, and called the step by US military and NATO forces against the previous commitments by the alliance towards the Afghan security forces, the presidential palace said in a statement.

The statement also added that the members of the national security council of Afghanistan called the step by US military to halt fuel delivery and supply and support to Afghan national security forces, an act to put pressure on the government of Afghanistan to sign the bilateral security agreement.

National security council members also insisted that the bilateral security agreement between the two nations can only be signed through mutual cooperation and not through pressures, presidential palace added in its statement.

In the meantime, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) following a statement said, “There has been no stoppage in the delivery of requested fuel and we continue to process all orders as soon as they are received from the ANSF.  We remain committed to supporting our ANSF partners and will continue to do so.”

  1. The proposed bilateral security agreement was not a real Afghan national “Jirga”.   I believe it was an attempt by the U.S. Obama Administration to control the internal affairs and decisions of the Afghan government. The participants were not dignitaries. I believe they represented the United States’, war profiteers’ and drug traffickers’ interests. All of the participants were war profiteers, former communists, warlords, and Afghans on the CIA payroll. The Afghan majority was not represented. I believe this was an Obama “Jirga” .The Afghan jirga tradition has been destroyed and hijacked so that the United States and war profiteers can benefit. I believe that it was shameful that our government tried to control this gathering and the outcome. Please see the attached photo of U.S. Ambassador Cunningham, a U.S. General and others, who were in the top tier of the gathering meeting place, trying to control or pilot the gathering and its outcome. I believe none of the U.S. officials should have been present if this truly was an independent Afghan jirga. It obviously was not. I believe the Obama Administration should be ashamed and embarrassed for stooping to such desperate measures to control the internal affairs of another country.  I believe it might be time for the Obama Administration to stop listening to the advice of the DOD, CIA, Pentagon, national security neoconservatives and Afghan war profiteers and start listening to the American people and the Afghan educated intellectuals, who do not have blood on their hands to guide the Obama Administration on how to honorable end this war.

    I believe the U.S. government can still benefit from the vast untapped natural resources and other mineral wealth even if it takes the honorable path to end the war. I believe it will be more beneficial economically, strategically and politically to the United States to do the right thing..

    In addition, I believe the Afghan people will suffer for another decade or longer if this security agreement which allows foreign troops probably 30,000 and mercenaries on the ground. Also, ordinary Americans will suffer. Can we American people afford this war (after 2014 it will cost about 6.5 Billion per year to pay for the ANSF and another 2 billion in aid? Will Americans and Congress want to continue paying for the corrupt government, war profiteers, communist war criminals, and war lords? I doubt it.  I know we cannot afford it.  I think Americans will wake up very soon and stop paying.  How much will it cost Americans to keep the nine permanent military bases and American mercenaries? I guess trillions of dollars which we do not have.  That is why there needs to be a negotiated settlement with the Afghan Freedom Fighters and the U.S. for peace and/or a complete withdrawal of foreign troops. 
    Are the American people really going to be paying those trillions of dollars to stop Al Qaeda in Afghanistan? Please show me where Al Qaeda is in Afghanistan?  I think from an Afghan villagers’ perspective the only terrorist bases inside Afghanistan are the foreign military bases that are detaining, torturing, seizing, killing, bombing, raping and occupying them.
