U.S.: Only one supply route shut down by Pakistan

We should block all supply routes including from Balochistan to give a strong signal to US that these attacks on Pakistan are not acceptable.
Three soldiers were killed when NATO helicopters crossed the Afghanistan Pakistan border, Pakistani security officials said.

Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- The U.S. military says only one supply route to Afghanistan has been closed by the Pakistani government after fighting that led to the deaths of three Pakistani soldiers, and a military spokesman said Thursday that United States is hopeful the situation is only temporary.
Pakistan banned NATO supply convoys from entering Afghanistan after the deaths of the three soldiers, whom the government says were killed in Pakistani territory during fighting between NATO troops and militants, according to a military official from the NATO-led command in Afghanistan.
Lt. Col. John Dorrian, an ISAF spokesman, said the Torkham Gate in the Khyber Agency has been closed since about midday on Thursday. Chaman Gate, the other border crossing between Pakistan and Afghanistan, remains open.
"We don't think it's a very serious problem," Dorrian said. "it's a throroughfare we use a lot so it is significant. But we can work around it."
"We do expect these matters to be resolved."
The U.S. Embassy in Islamabad is talking with Pakistan to resolve the situation.
Supply convoys are all-important for the Afghan war effort, and officials from NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were trying to persuade Pakistan to lift the ban. Coalition forces rely heavily on convoys from Pakistan to bring in supplies and gear.
Torkham Gate is one of the main ports of entry for materiel coming into the war zone. But he emphasized it's not the only way of getting supplies in, he said. Khyber Agency is one of the seven districts in Pakistan's tribal region.
About half the cargo that flows into Afghanistan comes in via one of the two gates from Pakistan, the Defense Department says. Another 30 percent uses two major routes through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, one via Russia and the other via the Caucasus. The remaining 20 percent -- mostly sensitive items like weapons, ammunition and other critical equipment -- comes in by air.
ISAF said in a statement Thursday that its forces saw what they thought were insurgents trying to fire mortars at a coalition base in the Dand Patan District of Afghanistan's Paktiya province, near the Pakistani border.
An air weapons team targeted the suspected insurgents' firing position, located inside Afghanistan along the border area, and the aircraft entered Pakistani airspace briefly "as they engaged this initial target," the ISAF statement said.
After this strike, the "aircraft received what the crews assessed as effective small arms fire from individuals just across the border in Pakistan" and the ISAF aircraft, operating in self-defense, entered into Pakistani airspace and killed "several armed individuals."
Later, Pakistani military officials told ISAF that coalition aircraft struck its border forces.
"ISAF and Pakistani forces are reviewing the operational reporting to verify the exact location of the two engagements and the facts in this case, and we will work together to fully investigate this incident.
"Both sides have in mind that it is the insurgents, operating on the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan and violating the territorial sovereignty of both countries, that we are focused on fighting," the ISAF statement said.
ISAF issued "sincere condolences to the Pakistani military and the families of those who were killed or injured."
The Pakistani government said two helicopters from Afghanistan appeared to have crossed the border into Pakistan in the Mandata Kandaho, Ali Mangola area of the upper Kurram Agency and engaged an outpost of Frontier Corps through cannon fire.
The post, manned by six soldiers, is located 200 meters inside Pakistan, and troops fired their rifles to indicate that the helicopters were crossing into Pakistani territory.
Instead of heeding the warning, the choppers fired two missiles and destroyed the post, killing the three soldiers and injuring three others.
"This is the third incident of its kind during past one week. In the wake of the last incident on 27 September, contact was made at the highest military level and the incident was regretted by the USA," the government said.
NATO helicopters crossed into Pakistani airspace from Afghanistan in pursuit of insurgents over the weekend, killing 49 people, a spokesman told CNN Monday.
Crossing the border did not violate the International Security Assistance Force rules of engagement, Maj. Michael Johnson said.
Pakistan is very sensitive about U.S.-led military operations on its territory and issued a strong protest Monday.
Pakistan called the incursions "a clear violation and breach" of U.N. rules for foreign forces in Afghanistan.
The United Nations "mandate terminates/finishes at the Afghanistan border. There are no agreed hot pursuit rules," Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
A commander of international forces in the western part of Afghanistan said Thursday that Pakistan's recent ban on use of supply routes is "not a problem" for troops in his area of the country.
Italian Gen. Claudio Berto, talking to reporters in the Pentagon via satellite from Afghanistan, said, "In my point of view, it's not a problem, we are really far away from Pakistan, and if you mean the goods for the soldier, they're coming through other borders, for example Turkmenistan. And we have no problem with this issue."Source

Strikes may lead to terror attacks in KP

Pakistan needs to take up strict stand against these NATO/US attacks because it is a ploy to create chaos in Pakistan and give excuses to militants for speeding terror activities.
PESHAWAR – The recent attacks by NATO in Pakistani areas may backlash in the shape of terror attacks across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
According to sources, Governor KP Owais Ahmad Ghani has expressed concerns over the possible backlash of these attacks and a report had been sent to the Centre expressing reservations on these attacks.
The reservations sent to the Centre included the detailed reports from FATA Secretariat, Political Agent Kurram and Bajaur Agencies and law enforcement agencies.
The Governor has informed the high-ups of security forces and Federal Government about possible attacks feared to hit KP once again as result of recent violations of Pakistani border and airspace by NATO/US forces. The Governor has also asked them to take up strong measures for avoiding such attacks in future.
Meanwhile, security officials based in North Waziristan informed TheNation that these attacks along with massive drone attacks in NW was aimed at pressing Pakistan Army to launch an operation in the area.
According to the officials, the forces and the local Taliban in NW are observing restrain in attacking each others while abiding by the peace deals in the areas, however, the growing drone attacks are an attempt to provoke militants, which could result in the renewed war in the area.
The tribesmen in NW are also acting patiently and have opted for peaceful protest against drone attacks, as shops, markets and bazaars were remained closed in the four main towns of North Waziristan on Thursday.

Imran expresses deep anger at killings of Pakistani forces by NATO raids; Asks govt. to open its eyes

The PTI Chairman Imran Khan has said that blind allegiance of our rulers to Washington  has emboldened the allied forces to such an extent that they have now even started killing our forces after trespassing on our geographical boundaries. In a press statement issued here today he said Pakistan, perhaps, is the only country in the Muslim world whose rulers have sold its sovereignty to the Yankees and they are not ashamed of it. The PTI chairman said our rulers should have taken a lesson from Iran whose leadership has shown exemplary courage in defying diktats of Washington with the result that US has now been forced to mend its ways towards Tehran. The PTI Chairman said the stereotyped routine protest lodged by the foreign office is not going to cut ice with Washington. The president and the prime minister should come out openly and condemn these border violations. They should also move the United Nations at once.
Imran Khan said not only once but so many times the NATO helicopter gun ships have been intruding into our territory in hot pursuit of alleged militants which is not acceptable.  

Imran Khan said that even after the passage of so-called 18th amendment the prime minister happens to be a toothless creature and he cannot take a single step without the approving nod of the president which can be gleaned from the fact that the PM promised the nation the other day that he will sack some of his ministers but within hours of his statement Zardari told his party's CEC that nothing doing. He is not going to show the door to any one of them.    

Pakistan threatens action over NATO incursions

Rehman Malik: "I assure you we are quite capable of defending our homeland."Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistan's foreign minister said Wednesday his country may use military force to stop violations of its territory.

"We will not allow anyone in any case to interfere in Pakistan's territory and if this continues, we will adopt all the set measures including military action," Rehman Malik told reporters. "I assure you we are quite capable of defending our homeland."
Malik said he was referring to two incidents of aerial engagements from the Afghanistan side into Pakistani territory by helicopters with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force over the weekend, in which dozens of suspected militants were killed in what Pakistan said was its territory.
Islamabad strongly protested the action and sent a demarche -- a formal protest relayed through diplomatic channels -- to NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
"These incidents are a clear violation and breach of the U.N. mandate under which ISAF operates. The said mandate "terminates/finishes" at the Afghanistan border. There are no agreed "hot pursuit" rules. Any impression to the contrary is not factually correct. Such violations are unacceptable," said a statement from Pakistan's foreign affairs ministry on Monday.
"ISAF/NATO has been asked not to participate in any military action that violates the U.N. mandate and infringes upon Pakistan's sovereignty. In the absence of immediate corrective measures, Pakistan will be constrained to consider response options," the statement continued.
Malik said Wednesday that Pakistan has protested the action to Afghanistan as well and will also voice its concerns to the United States.
ISAF described one of the incidents in a statement Monday, saying that "an air weapons team engaged a significant number of insurgents following an attack on a remote Afghan National Security Force outpost in Khost province Saturday."
Khost province, in Afghanistan's northeast, borders Pakistan. ISAF said more than 30 insurgents were killed in the strike.
"Initial reports indicate no civilians were injured or killed during the operation," the ISAF statment said. "At no time during the engagement did ground forces cross into Pakistan territory."
The Pakistani government has had to toe a fine line: While touting its help and willingness to assist in the war on terror, it also strongly defends its sovereignty and has loudly protested strikes by suspected drones in its territory that have killed some civilians.
A series of drone strikes each day since Saturday have killed at least 12 suspected militants in Pakistan's tribal region on the border with Afghanistan, two Pakistani intelligence officials told CNN Tuesday. One of those killed was a top al Qaeda commander, Sheikh Mohammad Fateh al Masri, the officials said.
The United States does not normally comment on suspected drone strikes, but it's the only country operating in the area known to have the capability to launch missiles from drones, which are operated remotely.SOURCE

CIA chief in Pakistan, to hold talks with top leadership

Time to be tough with US officials and act on our own conditions not theirs.
ISLAMABAD: Amid a dramatic increase in drone attacks on militants in the Waziristan tribal region, CIA chief Leon Panetta arrived here on Wednesday for talks with Pakistan's civil and military leadership.

Panetta's visit to Islamabad also coincides with reports in the media that Western intelligence agencies had uncovered a plot by Pakistani militants to carry out an attack in London and key cities in France and Germany. However, Pakistani officials have dismissed the reports.

Panetta is scheduled to meet Inter-Services Intelligence agency chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha, army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and President Asif Ali Zardari, officials were quoted as saying by TV news channels.

Panetta's talks with the Pakistani leadership will focus on counter-terrorism cooperation, the situation in Afghanistan and other regional issues.

There was no official word from either side about the CIA chief's visit and such trips are traditionally kept away from the media glare.

The CIA chief's visit comes amidst a dramatic increase in drone attacks on militants in the Waziristan tribal region.

There have been 21 drone strikes in the region this month - the highest figure for any single month since the attacks began in 2004.

Media reports said a US drone strike on Saturday killed Sheikh Fateh al-Masri, Al Qaida's operational chief for Afghanistan and Pakistan.
