Question US airstrikes in Pakistan!!!

PAKISTAN - Not A Sovereign Nation Anymore???


'US airstrike in Pak an intelligence botch-up'

Islamabad, January 15: The US missile strike intended to kill Al- Qaeda's number two leader Ayman Zawahri missed the intended target and the operation probably resulted from an intelligence botch-up, Pakistani officials have said.

"There is no indication that he (Zawahri) was there. Probably there was an intelligence botch-up," a senior Pakistani official based in Peshawar, was quoted as saying by local daily Dawn.

He said there was a tip off that Zawahri was invited to a village in the Bajur area where his in-laws live but he was not present there when US spy planes hit three houses on Friday.


The operation was launched on the basis of an intelligence report that the Al-Qaeda leader was amongst the few invited to a dinner in one of the three houses at the night of the attack on Eid day, he said.


Most of the victims of the air strike on the houses at the foothills of Damadola village, about 25 km northeast of Bajur regional headquarters, Khaar, were women and children and officials suspect the toll could be higher and some of the foreign militants might have been killed in the attack and buried elsewhere.

Pakistan on Saturday summoned the US Ambassador here Ryan Crocker and lodged a protest over the incident, while the Islamist alliance Muttahida Majlis Amal organised rallies protesting the US air attacks.

this brings up the question - is Pukistan a sovereign country??? US already has 3 military bases operating out of pakistan with complete freedom to move between Afganistan and pakistan (including airspace). Puki nukes are reported to be tagged by the yankies already and US also monitors and administers a program that controls movement of men and goods to and from pakistan's ports and airports!!!

and despite the killing of 18 pakistani citizens (my RIP for the women and children killed) in this airstrike, there has been no apology from US. looks like US royalled screwed pakistan!!!

Re: US airstrikes in Pakistan!!!

In a way Pak deserves all that is coming their way. They harbour terrorists, they prescribe to jeehad and hate towards kafirs is taught in heir madarsas. So they deserve all this. When they can really help in handing over OSama to US, they choose to just ask for loans and IMF to write off previous debts. They choose to send terrorists across our borders and claim that they are in step with the US in fighting terrorism.

Serves Pakistan right to get a good thrashing once in a while!

Question Re: US airstrikes in Pakistan!!!

here's more that says pukis are losing control to US:

8 FC men among 16 killed in Waziristan: ‘Cleric’s house hit by US copters’


By Pazir Gul and Zulfiqar Ali
MIRAMSHAH / PESHAWAR, Jan 7: Eight paramilitary troops and eight civilians were killed and nine others wounded in two attacks in the North Waziristan Agency on Friday night, official sources said.

The sources said that 11 paramilitary soldiers were missing, apparently being held hostage by militants.

Officials said that the residential compound of a local cleric came under a missile attack in Saidgi area near the Afghan border, killing eight people and wounding nine.

The victims included women and children of the same family, sources said.

Officials and area people said that two US helicopters were seen hovering over the area before the house of Maulvi Noor Mohammad was blown up in Saidgi, about 5km from the Afghan border.

“One of the helicopters hovered above while the other fired a missile,” these sources said.

Military spokesman Maj-Gen Shaukat Sultan confirmed casualties.

“Of course, we have reports about the casualties in Saidgi, but it is yet to be established whether US helicopters were involved in the attack,” he told Dawn on Saturday.

Local tribal elder Momin Khan said that before the missile attack some US troops riding five vehicles had intruded into the Pakistani territory from the Khost province past midnight.

“The intruders besieged a cluster of mud houses and took away two tribesmen after a brief search operation in the area,” Momin Khan said.

After an hour, he said, a helicopter crossed over into the tribal area from Afghanistan and fired a missile, hitting the house of Maulvi Noor Mohammad.

Officials said that two women, one child and five men were killed in the attack.

“The helicopter fired one missile, which completely destroyed the house,” said another official source.

A doctor at a hospital in Miramshah, headquarters of the North Waziristan Agency, said that the wounded had received multiple shrapnel injuries, but their condition was stable.

The area people said that paramilitary forces had conducted a raid on Maulvi Noor Muhammad’s house on Thursday, but failed to recover anything.

The cleric was suspected of providing shelter to militants who crossed over into Afghanistan to attack the US-led coalition forces.

In the other incident on Friday night, eight Frontier Corpse soldiers were killed and 11 others went missing when militants attacked a check-post in Mirali Tehsil.

Officials said that militants attacked the troops in Eisokhel village, East of Miramshah. The militants fired rockets and used heavy and light machineguns in the attack on the check-post near Khaisaro bridge on the Mirali-Bannu Road.

A captain, a subedar and a naib subedar of the Touchi Scouts were among the dead.

On Saturday, two helicopter gunships fired rockets on some houses in the Eisokhel village in which one Khasadar and three tribesmen were wounded.

The Khasadar identified as Mohibullah later succumbed to injuries in a hospital, doctors said.

Maj-Gen Sultan said that the security forces invariably launched follow-up attacks after such incidents. He did not give details.

Sources said that before the helicopter gunships’ attack the local authorities had given two hours to villagers to vacate their houses. The helicopters targeted hilltops and some houses in the area.

AGENCIES ADD: Talking about the militants’ attack on the check-post, Maj-Gen Sultan said: “Miscreants attacked a newly set-up paramilitary post near Mir Ali last night which resulted in the deaths of eight security officials.”

He said nine paramilitary soldiers went missing after the attack, but three returned on Saturday. “Six are still missing we hope they will be back soon.”

Talking Re: US airstrikes in Pakistan!!!

Afghanistan was used by Pakistan as it's strategic depth(whatever that ment ) But it seems the US is using Pakistan to test how deep it's missles enter
