KABUL, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday during her visit to Afghanistan that terrorists would be targeted in the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Addressing a joint press conference with Afghan President Hamid Karzai here, she said that terrorists are the common enemy of both Afghanistan and Pakistan, adding that the two countries are suffering at the hands of terrorists.

"We have a very clear message to the insurgents on both sides of the border that we are going to fight you and we are going to seek you in your safe havens whether you are in the Afghan side or the Pakistani side," Clinton said.

She also said that the United States expects Pakistan to take the lead in war on terror because the terrorists also pose a threat to the Pakistanis as well as to others, and the terrorists are killing the innocent people in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Clinton, who is going to Islamabad of Pakistan later Thursday and will meet with Pakistani leaders, arrived in Kabul on Wednesday night. She exchanged views with Afghan President Karzai on the issues related to Kabul-Washington relations, war on terror, Afghan reconciliation efforts and the situation in Afghanistan.

"We had comprehensive discussion today. The situation in Afghanistan, Pakistan, situation in the region, Afghan-U.S. relations and strategic partnership with U.S. came under discussion in our meeting today,"Karzai told journalists.

Some things never change. I remember at the end of the so-called Cold war, when USA was standing-alone Proud Victorious with all the help from Pakistan in Afghanistan, and after stabbing Pakistan in the back, and making Hollywood movies about their bravery in Afghanistan. I remember them sending their troops into Somalia without UN backing, and one US marine telling BBC that who cared about UN, 'USA owned the UN'. Then I remember them getting kicked in the backside by gallant Somalian Muslims and their President George Bush Senior throwing up in public and begging Pakistanis again for help. Then I remember Hollywood making a movie to get rid of the shame of the shameless and to re-instate their lost ego. Now they are quite stuck again in Afghanistan... and they are also quite close to begging Pakistan... also quite close to stabbing Pakistan in the back again. But I am more interested in the Hollywood movie that will follow.
