Will this mean that the Allies will have to find an alternative route, or will it mean opening a second front in Pakistan, with or without the Pakistani's co-operation. Either way I think it is a worrying development.

The message is clear enough, and it wasn't from insurgents.
(RTTNews) - Unidentified miscreants in southern Pakistan torched over 27 oil tankers carrying fuel for NATO forces in Afghanistan early Friday, local media reports said, apparently in retaliation to a cross-border NATO helicopter air strike a day earlier killing three Pakistani Army soldiers.
If this is becoming a more common occurrence, what are the ramifications for the supply of Afghan, do we have to find another route in, or fly combat missions above the route. Or alternatively come in via the North of the country if that is even possible.
Will Terry think this is a jolly jape and actually start trying to cut off supplies more readily, rather than attacking the troops.
