Would you prefer to use the terms ‘us’ and ‘them’? It is very easy to put people in a little box and describe them all to be this or that, I would think that as a moderate you would not like to be called a fanatic. You have started to rant about how Israel wants to control the world when really they would probably just like to protect themselves considering they are surrounded by nations that threaten their existence.
I am glad to hear you like to watch Michael Moore and his conspiracy theory movies, having free and open opinions is what makes a democracy, you dont have to fear for your safety because you speak out against your government.
I’ve got an answer for you too. Fencing and mining the border? Ok. Google a map of Pakistan and Afghanistan, select topographical view, alright do you see the enormity of the task of fencing an area like that? Do you have any idea how may mines are in Afghanistan already, and you think more is the answer?
No we should get back on topic.
Are the Taliban under pressure?
I think so. Are these attacks a threat to Pakistan? Not unless the people of Pakistan do more to purge their country of fanatasism. The colours of Pakistan are starting to be revealed, we will truly see what they are.

well it looks cynical because these muslims were not agitated when beautiful benazir butto was killed by another muslim !!!
this tells me muslim men aren’t horny either !!

Watch out Osama Bin Ladin will send his al queda operatives to your house if you keep trying to take credit for the attack away from him.

You are certainly an idiot if you think OBL’s guys didn’t do the suicide attacks on the New York towers. Americans are not suicidal; unlike muslims who want to be martyred and be entertained by virgins in the afterlife.

And why should America educate and improve the lives of the people in Pakistan. The government of Pakistan should take care of their own people. Do they all want to go on welfare?

The problem is the muslim religion in which the radical muslims feel that it is their duty to either convert infidels to Islam or kill them. As long as you have Islam as your religion, your people will always be at war with the infidels. The picture is very clear … if muslim stop killing others, they won’t be attacked in retaliation. Do you think the Americans in Afghanistan want to kill women and children in Pakistan? They don’t even want to waste their bombs and bullets on them. Be honest now, your people don’t value women even as much as you value children and donkeys. They are only slaves and possessions in your culture. When women and children die in a bombing you always note in news reports that so many women were killed in the attack. Now that is disingenuous since women are not valued in your culture as they are in Western cultures.

The women should all go on strike against the men in your countries and not cook or take care of the children and house for a few weeks until they are given equal rights. How can you guys kill women for wanting to marry someone that they love or even to go out with some unrelated man? Arranged marriages treat women like cattle or personal possessions of men. And why must women wear burqas and veils in your society? Are men in your society so horny that they will jump just any woman who doesn’t cover her face or body? You just need some self control like in Western societies.

The six main aspects of the strategy pertaining to the US foreign policy are as follows:
1. Defense and security of Israel
2. Containment of Islam as a defense, political and economic system
3. Control of fuel and energy assets
4. Control of the global trade routes and waterways
5. Encirclement of Russian Federation
6. Encirclement of China.
Here, it is important to understand that according to their religious belief system, Jews cannot establish an independent state of their own since their holy scriptures tell them that their betterment is in spreading across the world. In accordance with the exegesis of the concept of “diaspora”,[jews living outside of israel] Jews must be dispersed across the whole world and they have been forbidden to gather at a specific place. Older generations of Jews believed that they could be easily wiped out by the enemy, if they would choose to assemble in a single state.
Over the past one-fifty years, a new Jewish sect emerged, which according to the classical Judaism is a heretic sect, propounded a new notion that Jews should also constitute a separate state of their own. This heretic sect is known as the “Zionist” sect of Jews. This sect believes that in order to bring this Zionist state into existance they can stretch to any limits and they can bring about as much massacre to humanity as they want and that they can employ all sorts of negative, unfair, unethical and illicit means to accomplish this task.
Talking of the United States of America in the 21st century they mention that if we want to start bloody wars on a global scale we would not be able to win the support of the entire American nation until a second ‘Pearl Harbour’ takes place; the same way in which the entire American nation jumped into the 2nd World War after Pearl Harbour was attacked by the Japanese. It is imperative to mention here that the United States of America needed a second Pearl Harbour – which they eventually got in the form of 9/11.

A film that was made in reference to 9/11 (9/11 Fahrenheit) also claimed that it is impossible for Al-Qaida to have carried out such an operation. Even the inquiry into the event has not been made public by the United States as yet. Henry Kissinger was made the head of the inquiry, but he resigned on the third day and walked out. Secondly, it was discovered that Israeli teams were present in New Jersey before the 9/11 event took place and the entire attack was being filmed. They even celebrated the event because of which they were arrested by the F.B.I. All of this is present on record. The F.B.I. records also point out that the Israelis were filming the operation.
So, it should be firmly grasped that the tragedy of 9/11 was not accidental, there was a great strategy behind it, the foresight of the United States was behind it. The 9/11 calamity was engineered to create panic among the people and to lay the groundwork for winning public consent globally. Moreover, to name this war as the ‘War on Terror’ is nothing else but a part of the means to achieve the six established objectives of the American foreign policy in the 21st century. In actuality, ‘War on Terror’ is nothing more than complete nonsense.
I had to go in such detail bcz u ppl dont know the ground realities,you just know the america is fighting a war against terror.who are the terrorist?there are two types of terrorists,the americans and the second ones created as a reaction to the american terrorists.Recently it was exposed on the pakistani intelligence that[which is no more a secret and man yscholars in pakistan mentioned it]Baitullah Mehsud is a US backed “ASS HOLE” because so many times ISI gave information about Baitullah Mehsud but US didnt hit him.Why?because he is backed by US,India,Afghanistanand Israel.
Americans know that the game is no more a secret to pakistanis thats why they have started attacking pakistani territories.
If you think pakistani borders are porous to war lords,drug runners and relegious fanatasism then”WHY DID HAMID KARZAI REJECTED THE IDEA OF FENCING AND MINING OF THE BORDERS?Think over it,if u dont find any answer i have some stunning facts about karzai and his govt,

Period.
Target practice.. you cannot be serious, please consider what you write.
Dr Raheel, your rationale borders on paranoid conspiracy theory. why would US ‘assets’ infiltrate Pakistani politics to destabalise the government. Destabalised it is, and why, because of the US? come on. It is because of a clash in ideolgy, how many Pakis have crossed the border to fight the ISF? What do the majority of Pakistanis feel about the US and the coalition? The porus Pakistani borders are a melting pot of warlords, drug runners and religious fanatasism. will we see a ‘moderate’ muslim nation emerge?
Strategic Analyis seems to have offered one of the most level headed posts here.
There is no place in a peaceful world for extremist views of any kind, breeding hatred and division.

I don’t want to see over and over that US military attacks go bad in covert operations. If the US attacks it better result in big blows to these Islamic fascists who like Hitler want to concur the world. Sooner or later they will be doomed forever.

failure to prove the campaign-fostered illusions that presence of NATO/US forces was aimed
at liberating the Afghans, the US and Mr. Karzai seek escape by blaming others for all the
ills.
Very systematically the local Taliban are infiltrated by the US assets led by Baitullah Mehsud
to create hatred against the government and armed forces of Pakistan resulting in many
attacks on law enforcement agencies. These US assets in the garb of “Taliban” have
succeeded to a great extent to create a divide between the local Taliban and the State.
US assets within Pakistani political parties and media have been mobilized to create
confusion among the Pakistani public about security situation and safety of nuclear program.
Under a well-planned strategy pressure is being built against nuclear weapons of Pakistan by
floating false propaganda.
