Remember “Oh, Baradar!”? Well then you are gonna enjoy this:
Must be paid for by Apple….. 😛
But seriously, isn’t it AMAZING that on August 14 “Kayani calls for new laws to tackle terrorism” and day later “Taliban” attack an airbase (that makes android tablets”) and the jokers/tired old ‘soldiers’ were ready to repeat the tired old “this is our war“, “IT IS, IT IS I SAY!”, and “we will not forgive” (yeah, like you didn’t forgive and forget 1971, Abbotabad, Mehran base attack, Salala, etc., etc., etc.)
Kayani’s demand of course only means that he wants to legalize his kidnap/murder/slaughter of the tribals — as he and his troops have already been doing it for years — and wants a freer hand without having to answer to any one — even to a dog and pony show put up by SC. This attack also means to turn focus away once again from the reopening of the NATO supply lines chief local contractors for which are Kayani’s brothers, of course) and the deep throating our top military brass gave American’s recently and promises made.
And isn’t is funny that in less than 48 hours after the attack we see:
Cui bono??? False flag no doubt 😛
P.S. They are again all out…suddently there is a “massacre” in Gilgit-Baltistan that even U.N.’s Ban Moon noticed it between his planning for the ongoing REAL MASSACRES in Libya and Syria and half of Africa…Wow!
Meet the new boss….same as the old boss…
Remember the FRAUD Nawaz pulled to appear to not be a part of the rotten Raymond Davis affair? See:
and the followup discussion for all the details. That it was a fraud and that these fools cannot keep the story straight is obvious:
And Nawaz admits it”s all b.s.:
It now appears their brother Zardari has taken a page from their playbook.
UPDATE: On second thought, I remember Zardari used the ‘bad heart’ excuse many times before to not come back to the country and to get away from his legal troubles:
In June 2005, he suffered a heart attack and was treated in the United Arab Emirates. A PPP spokesman stated he underwent angioplasty in the United States. In September 2005, he did not show up for a Rawalpindi hearing on corruption charges; the court issued an arrest warrant. His lawyers stated he could not come because he was recovering from his treatment. Following a request by the Rawalpindi court, Interpol issued a red notice in January 2006 against the couple which called on member nations to decide on the couple’s extradition.
First it was reported that Zardari had a checkup done at the army hospital and was given an “all clear” certificate. Curious thing was, his spokesperson Farhatullah Babar and his bitch babar Awan strongly denied that any such check-up took place and that “Zardari had been busy in his office all day long.” Now why would you deny such a “good” thing? Probably because showing Zardari in good health goes against the plan.
So it is very interesting that the very next day, the healthy Zardari suddenly leaves for Dubai “for medical checkup”. That this too is a fraud is obvious from all the stories making the rounds. Here is how it is playing out so far:
Another VERY CURIOUS fact is the person accompanying him:
Farahnaz Ispahani, wife of Husain Haqqani, who was a journalist and had worked at the State Department-run Voice of America before joining Pakistan’s murky politics, is said to be accompanying Zardari.
MI: It’s interesting (and heartening) to see that many of the proposals made in the memo are now being implemented in the bilateral relationship. Very good.
I saw the following headline — in daily Dawn of all the places — and was pleasantly surprised:
I was surprised thinking it was about not mourning civilian deaths by drone attacks and was glad someone in the mainstream media had published something on it and that too Dawn (who usually call for MORE drone strikes and ask for bringing IDF-style check posts to Pakistan).
Boy, was I wrong! The crocodile tears Dawn and one Murtaza Haider (“Ph.D. is the Associate Dean of research and graduate programs at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University in Toronto”) are shedding are for the Hazara shia community in Balochistan 29 of whom died in back September.
Now how do they jump from NATO strike victims all the way to a sectarian thing far, far away is amazing. That at the same time they forget thousands of other victims of drone strikes — something that would be an automatic link — is beyond my comprehension. Another NATURAL link would be thousands of Balochis killed by security forces (read Pakistan Army), no matter what sect they belong to, reeks of hypocrisy of the extreme kind. One can only not forget about those intentionally and if one is following an agenda. This is not an oversight and is proven by the fact that they would not print any comment that mentions those killings (though they find every ridiculous comment agreeing with their bullshit story “Oh, poor Hazars…oh the humanity! Poor poor shias….”).
Here is an example. I tried to be as p.c. as I could be and thought about giving posting a comment a try. I wrote:
I am surprised no mention is made of the other victims of countless NATO strikes: the victims of drones. That would have been more RELEVANT. And using this incident to talk about sectarian/minority thing is dishonest at the very least and stinks of the author having an agenda.
Another interesting thing is that among all the killings going on in Balochistan, the author can only see those from the Haraza Shia community. He knows 435 Hazarans have been killed. Care to tell us how many thousands non-Hazarans were killed in the same period in Balochistan?
I guess “Not all deaths are same” after all 😉
After sitting in moderation for a while, the comment was disappeared like a Baloch in Dera Bugti 😉
Shame on you Murtaza Haider and Shame on you Dawn!!!
Just some tit-bits are enough I think:
Agencies add: Defence Minister Ch Ahmed Mukhtar also said on Wednesday that Shamsi airbase would be evacuated on December 11 but added that no decision has been made regarding Shahbaz airbase as yet. (source)
Remember Shahbaz is the main airbase for drone strikes and logistic support to NATO/ISAF. Shamsi is just a stupid airstrip (and any drones that flew from there flew into Afghanistan; remember it is over 500 miles from where drone strikes are happening in Pakistan)…
On another question regarding drone attacks whether Pakistan would shoot down the spy planes, he said that Pakistan did not want war with the United States….
And still he added “and there would be no more drone strikes after December 11”
Defence Minister Chaudhry Ahmad Mukhtar said on Wednesday that the supply routes for Nato troops will be restored only if Nato apologises for the “unprovoked attack” that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, Express News reported. (source)
So ALL they are seeking is an apology….
Note: Of course we know no U.S. apology is EVER going to come from Washington, D.C. We also know they will open up the NATO supply lines sooner rather than later. Now only thing to wait for is how they spin it and claim “U.S. has apologized” when in fact it hasn’t. Also interesting will be the “protests” by Pakistani government after the next drone strike (you know it will come soon) .
“But I told President Karzai that Afghan soil was being used against Pakistan and this is why Pakistan will not participate in that moot,” Gilani said.
The above I just added for the sheer stupid logic of this. ‘Pakistan’ has decided not to attend (meaningless) Bonn conference in protest but Gilani’s reasoning gave me the giggles. I would have asked him “Is Pakistan soil being used against Afghanistan?”
Now let’s move over to “our” Foreign Minister’s — whose only qualification is that she buys her purses and high-heels from foreign lands — offerings…
Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said that the Nato attack on the Pakistani check post was not an accident and “only an apology would not be enough.”
But your Defense Minister said it would be!
“Pakistan cannot see its soldiers being killed by allied forces anymore.”
Now this is a VERY interesting statement. Notice she only mentioned soldiers. Not civilians. In other words, Pakistan has no issue with them killing civilians and what she is actually saying is “Pakistan CAN see its civilians being killed by allied forces forever but not it’s soldiers”
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar Wednesday said future cooperation with the United States would be in the form of written
Folks, here you have clear admission there are a lot of understandings between the two and they are NOT in any written form. And on Memogate she adds:
Khar said the Foreign Office had no record with reference to the alleged memo of Mansoor Ijaz, nor was any letter sent to Admiral Mike Mullen by the government. “This memo was fabricated and such concocted stories have been published against Pakistan in the past also,” she observed.
Bullsh!t. It has been proven and she knows it (does she forget why Haqqani was fired? Interestingly she added “She said the PM had taken the decision to remove Hussain Haqqani from his office of ambassador in the national interest.” Duh!)
Khar said Mansoor Ijaz had targeted the Pakistan army and ISI. Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani has assigned the inquiry into memogate to the parliamentary committee on national security, she pointed out.
Bullsh!t! Does she forget Haqqani too “had targeted the Pakistan army and ISI” many times in the past?
“Therefore, Hussain Haqqani returned to Pakistan and will clear himself of all questions that have been raised,” she said. “Haqqani has played a pivotal role for the protection of national interests.” (source)
Er…So she already knows Haqani “will clear himself of all questions”? How? And how pivotal a role Haqqani has played for the protection of national interests we all know. The only problem is it was for AMERICAN national interest!!!
She reportedly also “warned there could be a policy review with NATO cooperation if they do it again.”
WTF? So this means there will be no policy review for sure until the next attack and even then it would just be a “maybe”.
(AP) WASHINGTON – NATO forces may have been lured into attacking friendly Pakistani border posts in a calculated maneuver by the Taliban, according to preliminary U.S. military reports on the deadliest friendly fire incident with Pakistan since the Afghanistan war began.
The NATO airstrike killed 24 Pakistani soldiers over the weekend in an apparent case of mistaken identity, The Associated Press has learned.
A joint U.S.-Afghan patrol was attacked by the Taliban early Saturday morning. While pursuing the enemy in the poorly marked border area, the patrol seems to have mistaken one of the Pakistan troop outposts for a militant encampment and called in a NATO gunship and attack helicopters to open fire.
U.S. officials say the reports suggest the Taliban may have deliberately tried to provoke a cross-border firefight that would set back fragile partnerships between the U.S. and NATO forces and Pakistani soldiers at the ill-defined border. Officials described the records on condition of anonymity to discuss classified matters.
Of course they too cannot lie straight! This talk of “poorly marked border area” and “the patrol seems to have mistaken one of the Pakistan troop outposts for a militant encampment” is utter BULL SHIT (see this where it states “There are four Pakistan and Isaf Afghanistan joint coordination centres, and the attack took place despite procedures being in place, they said. They said there had been no violation by Pakistan on the Mohmand Agency border. Nato and Isaf were aware of the border check posts in the area and had fired on them from 12:05am to 2:15am.“)
That this is all bullshit is also clear from the statement: “Officials described the records on condition of anonymity to discuss classified matters”
BTW: In telling this lie, they for the first time admit it was a JOINT U.S.-AFGHAN patrol — so U.S. TROOPS WERE ON THE GROUND AT LEAST A MILE IN. And how does a foot patrol march that far in by mistake in that nasty mountain area at midnight is itself a mystery (actually it is not; here I believe the Pakistan Army that the attack was deliberate, no question about it. Why? Anyone’s guess!)
….They said Volcano was the first check post that was attacked and communication had been cut off right after. Soldiers at the Boulder check post fired 26 air bursts but did not go after the helicopters as the situation could have gotten bad….
