NATO Fuel Tankers Attacked In Pakistan
Source: ASSOCIATED PRESS

(12-08) 08:12 PST QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) --

Pakistani police say assailants have fired rockets at tankers carrying fuel for U.S-led troops in Afghanistan, setting at least 10 vehicles on fire.

The attack Thursday was the first since Pakistan closed the border for trucks carrying Afghan war supplies to protest a Nov. 26 NATO airstrike that killed 24 Pakistani troops on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

2. They would rather be killed by the taliban and al- qaeda intentionally
let them starve, no more aid, let them sell their cheap textiles elsewhere. If they worked with us to identify their oppressors and killers they would be better off.
I guess they are afraid of corrupt intelligence agency, who protected BinLadin all those years and still protecting Mullah Omar.

4. I agree, leave them alone to their own making.
We wouldn't provide anything better to the average Pakistani.
