Pakistan blames US raids for hotel bombing

September 23, 2008

The Pakistani President, Asif Ali Zardari, will plead with President George Bush today to change a policy which is being blamed for one of his country’s worst terrorist atrocities.

“We hope the US will change policy because this is what is needed,” said Pakistan’s ambassador to the UK, Wajid Shamsul Hassan, after 53 people were killed and more than 250 injured in the bombing of the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad. He argued that the Bush administration’s decision to allow cross-border incursions from Afghanistan into Pakistan, including by ground forces on at least one occasion, had been counterproductive “because they are not killing high-value targets, they are killing civilians”. >>>>>

Either way, the world should see that the American way has been ‘fight fire with fire,’ and this mentality would be justified in the eyes of many around the world; for they never lit the fuse.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Unhurt After Shooting

September 3, 2008

Ms. Rehman said it was too early to identify the attackers or the motive. “It would be irresponsible to speculate without details,” she said.

However, immediate suspicion fell on the Taliban. The Pakistani military has carried out a major air operation against Taliban forces in the Bajaur area of the tribal region in the country’s north along the Afghanistan border in the last three weeks, and the Taliban vowed to seek revenge. After a series of devastating attacks in various parts of the country, a cease-fire was put in place by the government last weekend. >>>>>

She mentions how irresponsible it would be to speculate; but the media has to get in their digs.  They’ve got to keep the sheeps’ minds fed.
