Blips on the Screen: 26 Sep 08


From Snooper

Pakistani soldiers fired at American reconnaissance helicopters that were escorting Afghan and U.S. ground troops along the volatile border Thursday, sparking a five-minute ground battle between the countries which have been allies in the war on terrorism, officials said.Attempting to play down the incident - the first serious exchange with Pakistani forces acknowledged by the U.S. - Pakistan's president said only "flares" were fired at foreign helicopters that he said had strayed across the border from Afghanistan into his country.The five-minute exchange, which could have easily escalated into a much bigger conflict, could heighten tensions at a time the U.S. is stepping up cross-border operations in a region known as a haven for Taliban and al Qaeda militants. [...]This isn't good news, folks but it was bound to happen. I hope the libtards are happy now that their wish of the former President leaving Pakistan leadership because he was friends with GWB. I wonder how many Troop casualties will please them this time when the Real Deal starts.

  1. Sooner or later they will fire and down one of our helicopters and then all hell will break loose.

    It is time we go into Pakistan and get the Taliban and al Qada. The Pakistani government has hidden these creeps for too long.
