NATO helicopters and fighter jets attacked two military outposts in northwest Pakistan Saturday, killing as many as 28 troops and plunging US-Pakistan relations deeper into crisis......Islamabad also said it had ordered the United States to vacate a drone base in the country, but a senior U.S. official said Washington had received no such request and noted that Pakistan had made similar eviction threats in the past, without following through.
Do you think this going to get played down by the "global community" because everyone already sees America and Co. as the annoying house guests that won't go away?
Friendly-fire is one thing.. but attacking two separate bases at the same time seems a little.. nuts? What is particularly disconcerting to me is how this seems to be viewed (at least in the hysterical media) as an official NATO ATTACK on PAKISTAN..(oh ; also the Pakistan leadership ALSO view it like that "Pakistan's Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani said the killings were "an attack on Pakistan's sovereignty."
Oopsie! So do you think this is just another random incident that will be forgotten in a week and the same ole' song and dance will just go on? What are we still doing there anyway?
