Pakistan’s military has ordered its forces to open fire if U.S. troops launch another air or ground raid across the Afghan border, an army spokesman said – APP. This order comes in light of the recent incursions by the US Army’s unmanned drone aircraft which has continued to make bombing runs into Pakistan. Though I doubt our ammunition will come at par to even be a threat to these aerial unmanned highly sophisticated aerial attacks but that said its still a positive step to taken by the Pakistan Army to at least have the gutts to stand up and say no, to their US paymasters
“The orders are clear,” Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas said in an interview. “In case it happens again in this form, that there is a very significant detection, which is very definite, no ambiguity, across the border, on ground or in the air: open fire“
Seemingly it is depressing to see Pakistan having all the tell-tale signs of becoming an Iraq-2. The local insurgency is far more then even our own Army can handle, and in the meantime George Bush’s agenda on the War OF Terror has some how grown into a fanatic frenzy. Pakistan being caught in between the issues has been playing docile and seemingly will have to roll over and play dead, unless our leaders (!) can subdue this raging storm, not temporarily but on a more permanent basis
After talks Tuesday with British officials in London, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari said he did not “think there will be any more” cross-border raids by the U.S. He declined to comment on the order to use lethal force against American troops.
That said, there are growing reports that a few local TV personalities have complained [off-the-record] to have been given specific instructions to ‘stay away‘ from reporting on the Bajour incidents and the Baluchistan women issue, for the sake of national security. This new initiative of retaliation might undo those orders but time will only tell, if media will actually report the truth on whats happening in Bajour
well,its the order of General kiyani but our so called leaders cannot say it i bet you on television.
we are living in strange times.
is zardari the supreme commander of pakistan army? has he said something about the issue or is he busy in some HAFTAI KHUSH IKHLAQI in uae and dubai?
God helps those who help themselves.
Oh God, save us.
The US of A doesn’t have the manpower to make Pakistan another Iraq. They’re just moving another 1500 troops to Afghanistan in addition to the 15,000 they already have there, and making a big deal out of it on Fox news, to show that their republican party is stepping up and trying to fix the mess that Afghanistan has become. It’s been seven years since this war of terror began, WW2 took five. And the economic cost has been very high for them, and is increasingly looking like the economic cost the Soviet union paid for their Afghanistan debacle.
They’re just having having an election soon, and the encumbent republican party wants to pass the blame for the mistakes it made in Afghanistan in the past eight years off onto Pakistan.
Isn’t it interesting that they aren’t happy at all when the Pak army targets the surprisingly well-armed and modern rocketry&weaponry equiped(where does all that stuff come from anyway? Those kind of modern rockets weren’t even invented in the 80’s when the Afghans were supposed to have gotten armed) tehrik-e-taliban Pakistan blokes(the actual terrorists) and then they send their drones and UAVs off to target the groups of locals who’ve gotten fed up of the problems the TTP is causing there, and banded together against them? Isn’t this similar to what we saw in Baluchistan back in 2004, when the BLA(balochistan liberation army) was discovered to have been getting modern weaponry from accross the Afghan border? Then they have the audacity to claim that the root of their problems lies on our side of the border. With friends like these, who needs enemies
With such large number of spies and loyal servents in position of power and owners of wealth and property, US and (others) do not need an army to invade Pakistan…we are already invaded, it’s just not been officially announced!
Very true -we await anathor Salah-ud-din Ayubi
When an entire establishment decides to have an orgy of self interest at the cost of the poor man on the street – there are visible cracks that appear in the infrastructure.
The game has just begun – and the US doesn’t care a frig about how vulnerable Pakistan’s internal security is. How else will Bush justify his trillion $$$ plus heist from the American tax payer and the rest of the Allies???
Aasteen Ka Saanp Ab Katney Ko Nikla Hai!!!
Sab waderon ka khwab pura hoga; american invades pakistan and everybody gets an american passport…
