Pakistan could end cooperation in war on terror

Pakistani cooperation in the War on Terror has always been lukewarm as best. Now that the 'diplomatically inclined' Muslims have taken over from the military dictator, it seems inevitable that the thugs will step in and take over.

Once again, I wonder what to do with the Pakistani nukes. They scare me. I am sure that India and China are pretty scared too. What can we do?


Pakistan could end cooperation in war on terror - Yahoo! News: "The furor intensified Friday over Washington's decision to pursue Islamic militant targets inside Pakistan, with opposition lawmakers threatening the country could pull out of the war on terror if the U.S. refuses to respect its borders.

About 100 protesters burned American flags after the latest missile attack left at least 12 people dead in the North Waziristan region of the troubled northwest. Residents said they heard the sound of propeller-driven U.S. Predator drones circling overhead before the explosions.

President Bush secretly approved more aggressive cross-border operations in July, current and former American officials have told The Associated Press.

Since Aug. 13, there have been at least seven reported missile strikes as well as a raid by helicopter-borne U.S. commandos that Pakistani officials claim killed 15 civilians in tribally governed territory where the government has little control. The frontier region is considered a likely hiding place for Osama bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri."
