Brit-Pakistanis join Taliban to fight UK ’

#1
Inevitable given the sheer mass of terrorist plots unleashed by those of Pakistani origin against the UK starting from yesterdays London plot and working on to the London aircraft bombing plot, the London transport bombing plot, the ammonium nitrate fertilizer bomb plot etc….etc….etc

Also a smart move on the part of these Pakistani origin terrorists.

Attacking the UK’s interests in Afghanistan carries with it the option of availing the safe haven R & R facilities in Pakistan whereas remaining in the UK offers no such option :

'Brit-Pakistanis join Taliban to fight UK'

[ 3 Sep, 2006 1218hrs IST PTI ]

LONDON: A number of British Pakistanis have joined Taliban insurgents to fight against the UK troops in southern Afghanistan, a media report claimed here on Sunday.

The intelligence about their presence in Helmand province of Afghanistan, where 13 British soldiers have died, is believed to have come from Pakistan where authorities recently arrested suspects said to be involved in training of al-Qaeda and Taliban recruits, 'The Sunday Times' reported.

Pakistani, Chechen, Syrian, Egyptian, and Yemeni nationals are among the other foreign recruits fighting along side the Taliban, who train new recruits in the Pakistani city of Quetta, it claimed.

According to the report, a Pakistani official said on Saturday there were a number of British Pakistanis known to be fighting along side the Taliban in Afghanistan. "They come quietly in twos and threes and then disappear. It's difficult to trace them as they (also) carry Pakistani passport."

A source close to the Taliban claimed that two British Pakistanis had gone through Waziristan tribal area on their way to fight the British Army six weeks ago. A second Pakistani official said that others had since gone into Afghanistan "in an individual capacity".

The report quoted sources close to the Taliban as saying that "no more than ten" of its fighters were known to be British passport holders. "There are a lot of Pakistanis (fighting with the Taliban) and one cannot say how many of them hold British passports."

News of British recruits among the Taliban suggested that the war in Afghanistan, like that in Iraq, has become a magnet for extremists determined to fight western forces.

"It is not clear how many there are but we are told they are definitely there," a defence source was quoted as saying.

The report comes as the head of Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch told BBC that British Muslims were suspected of taking part in the fighting in Iraq. Commander Peter Clarke said that the number of British Muslims suspected of being involved in supporting terrorism runs into "thousands".

British troops estimate they have killed more than 1,200 Taliban insurgents over the past three months. But there appears to be no end to the new recruits replacing those killed.

"The Pakistan border is the problem and we know it is hard to close it all off, but the Taliban seem to have a conveyor belt of new recruits," the source said.

According to the report, the fighting in the British area of operations has been fierce around the UK outposts at Sangin, Musa Qala and Nowzad in northern Helmand over the past few days, with RAF and US aircraft mounting repeated bombing raids.

Ranger Anare Draiva, of First Royal Irish Regiment was killed and another soldier was seriously wounded in a Taliban attack on the Musa Qala base last Friday. Last week a 20-man British patrol sent to root out a group of Taliban holed up in a house a kilometre from the Sangin base found themselves outnumbered by the insurgents.

Acting on intelligence that there were a small number of Taliban in the house the British called in air support to bomb the building. The British troops waited in another building codenamed "Chinese restaurant" while the building was demolished but there were far more Taliban than anticipated, the report said.

I read the article in The Sunday Times this morning. Individuals like this have been going off to fight for Islam for a while now. If they are captured whilst fighting against UK forces can they be charged with treason?

I think Treason is the one crime that still holds the Death Penalty, if any of these so called British Pakistani Taliban are caught, this law should be applied.

Unfortunately the EU human rights thing have made the death penalty wrong, The death penalty went in 1999 for treason.

Although can you still get it for Arsen in the Royal dockyards?

We would be better off asking (unofficially of course) for our friends in Pakistan to look after these chaps in one of their jails. As I understand it Pakistan knows how to run jails as opposed to open prison camps here in the UK. Also it wouldn't cost the British Tax Payer £30-£100k per year to house them....

Whilst on this rant perhaps we could export some of our prison population or outsource it on mass :)

No, they won't as they'll be too busy trying to convince us that they were there building schools and wells..........bit like the last time.

Hopefully they'll not be taken prisoner so it'll not be an issue.

Rather than capturing the armed angry man with the rifle and proving he was trying to kill british forces, then convicting him and trying him.

Would it not be simpler to show the angry man the advantage of running fast and staying low?

No they would meet too many new freinds - we should out source to Russia, they have an established if currently underused network of correctional facilities, place like Perm, I have never been but it does not sound very nice

It was amazing how many Pakistanis suddenly had wedding to have been to when captured in some sh1thole on the Afghan border last time round wasn't it?
I was just about to say that yes, there was a programe on channel 4 where some went for a 'wedding' in Afghanistan and just so happened to get captured by the Northern Alliance. Why not just start we take no prisoners stratergy that involves slotting any left standing, wounded or trying to surrender.

Why not recruit them for the British Army instead? We could do with a suicide battalion or two? Might solve the undermanning issue and the future costs of pensions in one fell swoop!

According to a programme on BBC radio 4 sixty percent of UK girls of Pakistani origin and forty percent of boys return to 'their homeland' to marry and bring into the UK a spouse. Even the NuLabour minister being interviewed didn't sound too keen, though possibly because it involved arranged marriage rather than any other implications.

Why not organise an 'International Brigade' of volunteers, ready to teach these Islamofascists baskets a lesson? Are there any training camps out there for those who want to fight against the terrorists on their own turf?

The asian youths I have met at work are generally mummies boys and more often than not cry babies. I wonder what kind of fighters they make in Afghanistan?
