Posted by orange blossom special on Sun Aug 5 10:54:15 2007This article turned me around. Time for some airstrikes in the country that has a defense minister that promotes killing yourself and others. Push that Red Mosque to the sea!
And I'm tired of them protesting and bossing the world around.
Democratic US presidential hopeful Barack Obama was criticised by Pakistani officials as 'irresponsible' for saying in a policy speech last week that, if elected, he might order unilateral military strikes in the country against al-Qaeda. Following the Pakistani officials' comments, hundreds chanted anti-US slogans and burnt a US flag.
Bush administration officials had already angered Pakistanis last week by saying they would consider such strikes if intelligence warranted them.
In Miran Shah, a major town in the troubled region bordering Afghanistan, about 1,000 tribespeople condemned recent Pakistani military operations in the area and vowed to repel any US attack. 'We are able to defend ourselves. We will teach a lesson to America if it attacks us,' a local cleric, Maulvi Mohammed Roman, told the rally.
Elsewhere in the country, a suicide attacker killed nine people after detonating a car bomb at a busy bus station in an area bordering Afghanistan. The attack wounded 35 others, officials said. Army helicopter gunships and troops repelled a guerrilla raid on a military checkpoint earlier last week, killing at least 15 Islamists, the military said.
I find it disturbing that there are people who think they can defeat the US military. All these woodsy folks who pack a lot of guns for just in case the US gov't turns fascists, I don't get how they'd protect themselves either. What fantasies they have.
