Quote:Questions are being asked about the security of Pakistan's vital military installations after a well-organised group of gunmen held off Pakistan's equivalent of the US Navy Seals - the Special Services Group - Navy (SSG-N) - for 15 hours.

This SSG-N is said to be the most formidable fighting force in Pakistan, but - for a few hours at least - they appeared to be at the mercy of a brazen group of fighters.

"They weren't any ordinary militants - certainly not the Taliban," said one security official, who wished to remain unnamed.

"The aim of all Taliban attacks is maximum death and destruction - these men were very focused on what they were after."

The following snip from the LA Times:

Quote:Reporting from Washington— Tucked away in a $690-billion defense spending bill is a little-noticed provision that would expand the president's power to pursue suspected terrorists around the world.

The measure builds on legislation passed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that allowed President George W. Bush to pursue perpetrators of the attacks and their collaborators without first consulting with Congress.

The new provision would no longer require that targets have a connection to Sept. 11, instead granting the president authority to "use all necessary and appropriate force during the current armed conflict with Al Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces."

I think it's petty clear the US intends to attack who and when they want no provocation needed. I don't think China and Russia will play.

hug.gif Morning Shadow! Yup, China seems fed up with financing the US in this endless occupation. They have expressed that they are going to become involved if the US attacks Pakistan according to some accounts I've read, at any rate some saber rattling going down.

The US is going after Pakistan's nukes. This attack shows Pakistan is not capable of protecting them (by design?) dunno.gif

"This SSG-N is said to be the most formidable fighting force in Pakistan..."

That could well be like saying, "He is the most honest politician in DC." or, "Ralph is the most English speaking person on the tech line." It ain't saying much.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

OK, so killing those people in the Abbotabad operation
was all according to law and fine and dandy.

Summary execution is alright and correct, if Chairman
Maobama or his advisers deem you a "terrorist".


Nah, been going on for ages.
What difference does it make, whether it is okeyed in
black and white or not...I haven't seen much outrage
or even questioning attitudes in the MSM lately.

Well, the evolution of these things is clear:
Discussion about the rightfulness of this type of killings
was more vivid in the 60's.

The "terrorist" mantra seems to have worked well.

Did I stray off topic again?


More violence in Pakistan today, I'm sure.

Hillary Clinton was in Pakistan today if that qualifies as violence. chuckle.gif
