Pakistan Tells America To Keep Off Its Soil
Pakistan Tells America To Keep Off Its Soil

Islamabad, April 7 (NNN): Reacting strongly to the US threat to enter Pakistani territory as part of the operation against the Al-Qaeda terror network and the Taleban militia, Islamabad has warned Washington to keep off its soil.

Pakistan has said that it does not require outside military assistance to hunt terrorists hiding in the tribal region as it is quite capable of taking firm action against foreign militants camouflaging in one of the most difficult mountainous terrain of the world.

The Foreign Ministry rejected US Ambassador to Kabul, Zalmay Khalilzads threatening statement about the possibility of allied forces entering into tribal region to directly target terrorists slipping across the 25,00 km across the border with the troubled Afghanistan.

Zalmay had earlier said, We have told Pakistani leadership that either they must solve this problem (targeting terrorists in tribal region) or we will have to do it for ourselves.

1. So we're going to invade Pakistan before Iran and Syria?
Was that in any game plan that I missed? Choices, choices. Invade yet another anti-American country to grab bin Laden before the election or hope he turns himself in in time for the election.

I'm sure the republicans will take the worst move

3. I hope we do it
Bush has been appeasing Musharraff for far too long. If Bin Laden is really in Pakistan, we need to go after him with all we've got, Islamabad be damned. Nearly three years after 9/11 and we STILL don't have "permission" to fight the sworn enemies of the United States in Pakistan? What have these guys been doing?

2. damn. threatening another country
this is becoming quite the regular little past time.
do you think the folks in this admin sit around ordering their seretaries to write a more threatening note than the other guy.
or does bush have competitions to see who can write the most threatening letter in 25 words or less?
