Qatar is a zionist and by removing the palestinian director of AlJazeera (english) he has bowed down to the pressure of the clintonians mafia of the USA.

Al-Jazeera is now Al-crap with all the ex cNN reporters and anchors have joined into to making it a CIA propaganda organ, concentrating mainly on the arab revolution.

After the USA debacle in Afghanistan, they are pulling out of Germany as well. God bless America!

To continue a war against the people who are hospitable and protect those who are given asylum, is the blunder that the incumbent President undertook. It is going to cost him his presidency and hence the rapid withdrawl and sufficing American low key criminal activity by the use of CIA actions including target killing with drones. Pakistan military has not yet found a recipe against this evil other than Gillani protests, not even going to the UNO or the criminal court for the violation of Pakistan sovereignity.

Pakistan military must have learnt now, after their experience with the yanks and the CIA, that as individuals today’s flat footed americans are extremely incompetent and have no sense to appreciate other cultures. They are on the run and are now talking about 2013 for halt of combat mission. Mind you,the Pashtuns have not yet announced the all out offensive against the infdels, when Mr Karzai will also be obliged to go along with the decision of all tribes. The Brits have had a taste of this in history. Hence the sceptic of the British General who did not agree with NATO report that the so called Taibans are controlled by Pakistan ISI.

Afghan Pashtun tribes were not formed from the remnants of the invading armies. They have their unique history and are the only one who were blessed by Prophet Mohammad(pbuh) when tribe after tribe converted to Islam. They roughly total approx. 40 million living in the triangular shape terrtoryof about 250,000 sq. miles, starting from Dir in the north , along the Indus, which a westwatd turn a few miles south of Dera Ismail Khan, and embracing within its fold Loralai, Sharigh, Degari, Harnal, Quetta, Pishin, Chaman and Qndhar extending upto Herat.They live in no go security zones and foreigners are regarded as intruders.By foreigners they mean all who do not speak their language and the dialect.

The former General Macchrystal discovered this first hand and by studying the history of his scotts ancestors, including General Warburton!

Pashtuns do not negotiate but have definite conditions,they are known to be treacerous, one must meet their demands or use force to defeat them on battle ground. To be honest the yanks and the NATO have proven to be the weakest the Pashtuns have ever encountered in their history. The marines usual night raids and advances with the help of helicopters and trying to win the heart by paying cash to the village elders and sweets to the children was not more than a farce.

Americans are slow learners, di they learn anything from Vietnam? But surely, the lesson Afghanistan will teach them will not be forgotten so quickly.

When carrots are rotten and sticks are broken, there is massive confusion in halls of the hill.
The best they could do was to push forward their pawn Qatar with no clout with any player. Days are getting short, cold and dark.
Then Afghan tribes were formed by remnants of invading armies from time immemorial. There is a small chance of forming another tribe in the ethnic mosaic only if Americans could learn the survival skills from locals.

The Yanks won’t have it easy from here on, not after they martyred 24 of our soldiers and officers. The containers will remained blocked and supply lines will be choked. as for the ISI, they continue their propaganda about ISI supporting the Taliban. In reality the Yanks messed up themselves and handed over the victory to Taliban. Had they listened years before and followed advice to cut their losses and run it would have been better. Afghans are a traditionally conservative agrarian society, no one can change the groud realities.

Zarkosi wanted to pull out immediately, but under pressure from the yanks announced 2013! What happened to 2014?

The Americans should stop blaming Pakistan for their set backs.

Pakistan should open up the containers now stranded on the Grand Trunk highway and expose the merchandise to the Press which was being sent to Afghanistan for its eventual use against Pakistan! The yanks reckoned that Pakistan ISI can be fooled as on previous occasions.

It is safe to say that as Taliban are now a force to be reckoned with, the only way out is to negotiate with them for a safe passage. Good Luck!
