Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday warned that terrorism is rebounding in his country, but he said military action is not enough to stop it as the problem stems from "terrorist sanctuaries" beyond its borders. The appeal came as other leaders, wearied of the labels lumped on them by Washington, took aim at the United States, with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez likening President George W.
