More excitement! We bombed Pakistan again yesterday. That brings the total number of missile attacks since August to 19. And they no likey.
Nato-led troops in Afghanistan say they carried out an attack on an "enemy position" in Pakistan on Sunday with the help of Pakistani security forces.Hey! They are helping us! They love us bombing their country! Right? Right? Hello?
Pakistan has summoned the US ambassador in Islamabad to protest at a US missile attack deep inside Pakistani territory on Wednesday that killed five people.Oh. Boo. Pakistan is really, really not happy with the bombing situation.
There is widespread anger and resentment in Pakistan at the increasing use of missile strikes by unmanned US drones along the tribal Afghan-Pakistan border.
Wednesday’s strike in Bannu was unusual because it hit much further inside Pakistani territory.
Addressing NATO's military committee in Brussels on Wednesday Army Chief General Ashfaq Kayani also urged a halt to the use of unmanned "combat aerial vehicles within Pakistani territory."
Kayani met NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, and held meetings with Admiral Michael Mullen, U.S. chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, and a French defense chief.
No worries, though. We send missiles into Pakistan to kill "militants." We inevitably end up killing civilians. Anger increases, which leads to more militants. Good work.
