Pakistan warns Britain stop helping US 'Drome War'

#1
Attack on the drones


PAKISTAN yesterday warned Britain to help stop the American "Drone Wars" that are slaughtering hundreds of its innocent civilians.


Pakistan's High Commissioner to Britain Wajid Shamsul Hasan told The Sun in an exclusive interview that his country's relations with America are at their lowest ebb. ....

But he urged PM David Cameron to condemn US drone attacks on al-Qaeda and Taliban training camps in the north west of his country — dubbing them as "war crimes" and "little more than state executions".

Tough-talking Mr Hasan also declared Pakistan would have no choice but to support Iran if "aggressive" Israel attacks it.

But his immediate concern is the drones known to have killed 535 civilians, including 60 children, in three years.

Pakistan claims the real death toll is more than 1,000. The unmanned aircraft blast missiles at targets, directed by a computer thousands of miles away. ...

"They will have to at some stage take punitive actions to stop them. They have got means to take such actions to defend their own frontier and territories. ..

It appears:

1. Pakistan is livid at the killings of innocents through the Drone attacks as per their perceptions.

2. Pakistan will support Iran.

3. Pakistan wants Mr Cameron to intercede in these "war crimes" and "little more than state executions".

4. There will be punitive actions by Pakistan to stop these drone attacks.

What exactly can be the solution to ensure that the US' aim is achieved and yet, at the same time, Pakistan can calm their agitated people?

Pakistan Holds Border Talks After Deadly US Attack

The Pakistani army held talks with NATO and Afghan forces on Wednesday in an effort to improve coordination along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, a sign of thawing relations after American airstrikes accidentally killed 24 Pakistani soldiers last year.

Pakistan was outraged by the attack on two of its Afghan border posts on Nov. 26 and claimed it was deliberate. Islamabad retaliated by closing its border to supplies meant for NATO troops in Afghanistan and by kicking the U.S. out of an air base used by American drones.

Exactly. They're already the enemy - they should shut it before they make the situation worse. Probably just a bit upset that the drones finally hit someone important.
How thick anyway - stick with the country that we have so much mutual interest economically and militarily with? Or go with the ******* we're troughing aid to only to have them funnel it to the ******* blowing our lads up in the first place?

No, cheers anyway Pakistan.

Saw that myself and was hoping this was going to be a thread about how the Pakistanis think drones are called dromes.

It's been disappointing.

Anyway, sorry, I'll let the discussion get back on track.


When I visited the Philippines I happened upon their version of Deal or No Deal. As it was a western port over, with scantily clad women who dance just before every commercial break - I decided to give it a look. Unfortunately all the contestants pronounce 'Briefcase' (used instead of the boxes) as 'Beef Cakes' or 'Brief Cakes'. Because the average literacy level in the Philippines is awful, and they have so many tribal languages they all just default to bad english.

According to the US Department of State "The Philippines has one of the highest literacy rates in the developing world. Approximately 93% of the population 10 years of age and older are literate."

I wouldn't like to bank on that being the case here!

I know - off topic.

So will we have internment ? ....please
