Vice President Cheney has met with Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai during an unannounced visit to the country.

Cheney says the United States will call on NATO countries to step up their commitment to the country. In a joint news conference with Karzai, Cheney also said Pakistan has an obligation to battle insurgents along the border between the two countries.

The vice president is praising progress made in improving security forces in the country, despite continuing violence.

After meeting with Karzai, Cheney boarded a helicopter and flew to Bagram Air Base to get a briefing and spend some time with U.S. troops.

This is the second unannounced stop of Cheney's 10-day Middle East tour. He spent two days in Iraq earlier this week.

    Hey Mr. Cheney... Not that you care what us pesky American people think but my response to your call to NATO for help is "So?" I want to see Mr. Cheney thrown in prison.
