..от уходящего Президента страны..

Outgoing Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai took one final swipe at the U.S. Tuesday, telling a gathering of Afghan government employees that the 13-year American-led military action had failed to bring peace to his country.

“We don’t have peace because the Americans didn’t want peace,” said Karzai, who will officially give way to President-elect Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai when the latter is sworn in Monday.

“If America and Pakistan really want it, peace will come to Afghanistan,” Karzai added, referring to his country’s eastern neighbor as well as the U.S. “The war in Afghanistan is to the benefit of foreigners. But Afghans on both sides are the sacrificial lambs and victims of this war.” Karzai also thanked a number of countries for their efforts in Afghanistan — India, Japan, China, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Germany — without thanking the U.S.

Karzai’s words were met with a furious response by the American ambassador to Afghanistan James Cunningham, who called the comments “ungracious and ungrateful.”
