First, Pakistan sacrifices its own citizens on the alter of USraeli lies:
"Pakistan says it's closing in on Taliban stronghold" by Chris Brummitt, Associated Press | March 1, 2009
KHAR, Pakistan - Pakistan has beaten the Taliban in a major stronghold close to the Afghan border, is close to victory in another, and expects to pacify most of the remaining tribal areas before the end of the year, commanders said yesterday.
The upbeat assessment of conditions in the arid, mountainous regions of Bajur and Mohmand follows international criticism of Pakistan for accepting a cease-fire with militants behind a bloody campaign in Swat Valley, just next to the tribal regions. Many analysts also fear that growing political turmoil between the government and opposition could distract attention from the fight against Al Qaeda and the Taliban as Washington wants more concerted action.
The United States and independent analysts have praised the offensive in Bajur, saying it has helped stem the passage of militants from Pakistan into Afghanistan, where violence against American and NATO troops is running at its highest level since the 2001 US invasion. Pakistan's tribal regions are believed to be a likely hiding place for Osama bin Laden and other Al Qaeda leaders. Foreign governments fear extremists could be plotting attacks on the West.
Major General Tariq Khan, commander of the paramilitary Frontier Corps, said the insurgency had been "dismantled" in Bajur after six months of battles between well-armed militants and soldiers backed by tanks and helicopter gunships.
He said 1,600 militants had been killed and 150 civilians had died. Those figures could not be verified independently. "Their resistance has broken down. We control the roads," he told reporters flown to the northwestern region by helicopter. "They have lost."
And the newspaper hardly printed a word of it.
Of course, the Pakistanis were suing for peace with their Taliban truces the last few weeks, but what's one more lie, huh?
Colonel Saif Ullah, commander in the neighboring region of Mohmand, said troops had repelled insurgents from most of the territory and it would soon be cleared. The army took reporters to witness a ceremony marking the victory over the militants conducted by tribal elders and military commanders close to a Bajur town that was the site of a major battle last week.
Rows of shops selling household goods and furniture were destroyed, and tanks were parked amid the debris. Residents - most of whom fled before the battle - had not returned to the town in a valley leading to Afghanistan.
What, no pictures?
American commanders say the Afghan province of Kunar which borders Bajur is one of the most treacherous areas for their soldiers. The United States has earmarked it for some of the reinforcements being deployed to Afghanistan this year.. --more--"
Yup, looted taxpayer dollars and American lives are "earmarked" for looters and empires!
Of course, even Pakistan's sacrificin of its own wasn't enough:
"Missile attack targets militants in Pakistan's tribal areas" by Laura King, Los Angeles Times | March 2, 2009
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - A missile attack near Pakistan's border with Afghanistan, believed to have been carried out by a US drone aircraft, killed at least eight people yesterday.... suggesting the Obama administration intends to press ahead with a campaign of targeting militants in Pakistan's tribal areas.
Some change, jurdering those innocent people over a lie.
The two missiles, apparently fired by an unmanned aircraft, hit a compound near the Sara Rogha area of South Waziristan. The area is a stronghold of Baitullah Mehsud, the leader of Pakistan's Taliban movement.
Oh, yeah, and about the TALIBAN:
"The U.S. government was well aware of the Taliban's reactionary program, yet it chose to back their rise to power in the mid-1990s. The creation of the Taliban was "actively encouraged by the ISI and the CIA," according to Selig Harrison, an expert on U.S. relations with Asia. "The United States encouraged Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to support the Taliban, certainly right up to their advance on Kabul," adds respected journalist Ahmed Rashid. When the Taliban took power, State Department spokesperson Glyn Davies said that he saw "nothing objectionable" in the Taliban's plans to impose strict Islamic law, and Senator Hank Brown, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on the Near East and South Asia, welcomed the new regime: "The good part of what has happened is that one of the factions at last seems capable of developing a new government in Afghanistan." "The Taliban will probably develop like the Saudis. There will be Aramco [the consortium of oil companies that controlled Saudi oil], pipelines, an emir, no parliament and lots of Sharia law. We can live with that," said another U.S. diplomat in 1997."
Who are the Taliban, anyway?
"Something of a catchall term for loosely affiliated insurgents without a singular command structure. Often, the Afghan government favors the phrase 'enemies of the state' (New York Times July 24, 2007)."
"The Taliban is growing and creating new alliances not because its sectarian religious practices have become popular, but because it is the only available umbrella for national liberation," says Pakistani historian and political commentator Tariq Ali. "As the British and the Soviets discovered to their cost in the preceding two centuries, Afghans never like being occupied."

And today, readers?
"More and more, people here look back to the era of harsh Taliban rule from 1996 to 2001, describing it as a time of security and peace."
Oh, oh, oh!!!! I'm so offended by the AmeriKan MSM and its bullshit!

And consider this:
"They sat in one girl’s home telling their story, their faces uncovered only because no man was present. But when Mohammed Matloob, the father of one of the girls, walked into the room, the other three quickly pulled their head scarves over their faces. His daughter, Nagina, 16, ordered him to leave the room, which he did, with a surprised shrug."
Aren't the children beautiful?
Oh, what LIES we have been told about Muslims by our Muslim-hating Zionist AmeriKan MSM, Americans!!!!!!
Against the backdrop of the country's latest political crisis, Taliban militants in the troubled Swat Valley, 100 miles north of the capital, are demanding that the government move ahead with a pledge to institute Sharia, or Islamic law, in the region.
Under an accord between the government and militants reached two weeks ago, Taliban fighters are to lay down their arms. But they have said they will not do so until an Islamic judicial system is in place; the government says that will happen only once peace has settled. --more--"
And when PEACE is ON ITS WAY, the FALSE-FLAGGERS come out to PLAY!
"Pakistan: Gunmen in rickshaws attack cricket team" by Rizwan Ali and Chris Brummitt, Associated Press Writer | March 3, 2009
LAHORE, Pakistan --A team of heavily armed gunmen, some traveling in rickshaws, ambushed Sri Lanka's national cricket team Tuesday as it arrived for a match, killing six police guards and wounding seven players. The brazen attack heightened fears that Pakistan is becoming increasingly unstable.
And CUI BONO? See: Sri Lanka: Case Study in MSM Propaganda
Now SO MANY THINGS make SENSE -- including the MSM coverage this last month!!!
The assault bore striking similarities to last year's three-day hostage drama in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai.
And now you have your official Zionist version boiled down into a paragraph.
Working in pairs, the attackers in Lahore carried walkie-talkies and backpacks stuffed with water, dried fruit and other high-energy food -- a sign they anticipated a protracted siege and may have been planning to take the players hostage.
The bus sped through the ambush, but the gunmen's preparations indicated they may been planning to hijack the vehicle, Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik told The Associated Press. None of the gunmen were killed and all apparently escaped into this teeming eastern city.
Even though the bus was peppered with 25 bullet holes, none of the cricket players were killed. The attack was among the highest-profile terrorist strikes on a sports team since the 1972 Munich Olympics, when Palestinian militants killed 11 Israeli athletes.
And CUI BONO? The AGENDA-PUSHING NEVER ENDS from the JEWISH WAR-PROMOTING SHIT SHEET!!!!!
In addition, by targeting not only a major Pakistani city but also the country's most popular sport, the attack was sure to resonate throughout the region, where cricket has been an obsession since it was introduced by the British during the colonial era.
In targeting the sport, the gunmen were certain to draw international attention to the government's inability to provide basic security as it battles militants linked to al-Qaida and the Taliban and faces accusations that it is harboring terrorists.
Can the AGENDA BE ANY CLEARER, readers?
The attack ended Pakistan's hopes of hosting international cricket teams -- or any high profile sports events -- for months, if not years. Even before Tuesday, most cricket squads chose not to tour the country for security reasons. India and Australia had canceled tours, and New Zealand announced Tuesday it was calling of its December tour.
Besides the six police officers, a driver of a vehicle in the convoy was also killed, officials said. Seven Sri Lankan players, a Pakistani umpire and a coach from Britain were wounded, none with life-threatening injuries. Malik did not speculate on the identity of the attackers, but said Pakistan was "in a state of war" and vowed to "flush out all these terrorists from this country."
Pakistan has a web of Islamist militant networks, some with links to al-Qaida and the Taliban, which have staged other high-profile strikes in a bid to destabilize the government and punish it for its support of the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan.
How much bullshit can you take, readers, because I'm done with this war-promoting garbage!
The convoy transporting the Sri Lankan team and cricket officials was surrounded by police vehicles at the front, rear and side, but traveled the same route each day of the five-day test match against Pakistan's national team, according to Malik. The attack occurred on the third day of play just before 9 a.m.
The assailants struck at a traffic circle about 300 yards from the Gaddafi Stadium in downtown Lahore, firing at least one grenade and a rocket as well as repeated automatic weapon rounds from a white car, before other gunmen attacked from three other locations, witnesses and officials said.
Lahore police chief Haji Habibur Rehman said the attackers arrived at the scene in motorized rickshaws and two cars, and police later seized a large cache of weapons abandoned in one of the rickshaws and elsewhere near the scene. The arsenal displayed for journalists included rocket-propelled grenades, pistols, 25 hand grenades, submachine guns and plastic explosives.
Despite the onslaught, the bus carrying the Sri Lankan players did not stop, speeding through the hail of bullets and into the stadium, likely saving many lives. As the players ducked, shouting "Go! Go!" driver Mohammad Khalil said he maneuvered the bus, pocked with bullet holes and its windshield shattered, into the stadium.
Bloodied players were helped off the vehicle and Sri Lankan team captain Mahela Jayawardene shouted: "Get more ambulances in here! Get more ambulances in here," according to Tony Bennet, an Australian cameraman covering the match.
At the traffic circle, gunmen fought a 15-minute battle with police. Pakistani TV footage showed at least two pairs of gunmen with backpacks firing on the convoy from a stretch of grass, taking cover behind a monument.
"These people were highly trained and highly armed -- the way they were holding their guns, the way they were taking aim and shooting at the police," said Salman Taseer, the governor of Punjab province, adding that they "used the same methods... as the terrorists who attacked Mumbai."
One militant group likely to fall under suspicion is Lashkar-e-Taiba, the network blamed for the Nov. 26-28 Mumbai attacks, in which 10 gunmen targeted luxury hotels, a Jewish center and other sites, killing 164 people....
While some politicians and retired generals, along with ordinary Pakistanis, hinted at an Indian hand in the Lahore attacks, government leaders and security chiefs did not. Any high-level allegations like that would trigger fresh and possibly dangerous tensions between the countries, already running high following the Mumbai attacks.
And was the PURPOSE of the FALSE-FLAG PROVOCATION, I'm sure! It NEVER FUCKING ENDS!!!
There were also no indications that authorities in Pakistan or Sri Lanka suspected Sri Lanka's Tamil Tiger separatist rebels, who are being badly hit in a military offensive at home and have staged scores of terror attacks in the past.
With HELP from MOSSAD!!!
Rehman, the Lahore police chief, said the 12-14 assailants resembled Pashtuns, the ethnic group from close to the Afghan border, the stronghold of al-Qaida and the Taliban. He said officers were hunting for them.... --more--"
Oh, so it's a FRAME-UP, is it?
Yup, just when a TRUCE has been called!
What a CUI BONO COINCIDENCE!
"In Pakistan, questions follow attack; Concern voiced on how team, police were ambushed" by Rizwan Ali and Chris Brummitt, Associated Press | March 5, 2009
Oh, no! NOT AGAIN!!!!!!
LAHORE, Pakistan - A day after the ambush of the Sri Lankan cricket team, Pakistanis asked yesterday how terrorists managed to attack such a high-profile target and escape unscathed.
Well, WE KNOW, don't we, readers?
Underscoring the unease, a referee caught up in the attack alleged that police abandoned him like a "sitting duck," and video showed the gunmen sauntering down a deserted side street, apparently leaving with no fear of pursuit. Pakistani officials rejected the allegation by British match official Chris Broad, noting that six policemen guarding the convoy were killed when it was attacked by up to 14 heavily armed men near a stadium in Lahore.
But Broad's charge and the surveillance camera recording of the escaping gunmen triggered fresh questions about Pakistan's ability to prevent terrorist attacks, particularly in light of the government's pledge to give the Sri Lankan players and match officials the same level of protection afforded a head of state.
And CUI BONO?
"It is a source of embarrassment at the international level," said Ahsan Iqbal, an opposition lawmaker. "This government should be ashamed and make those responsible for criminal negligence in their duties accountable."
9/11, America, 9/11!!!!!!!
The lapse was all the more shocking because Pakistan knew any incident would end, perhaps for years, its hopes of regularly hosting international sporting events. Even before Tuesday's ambush, most teams chose not to visit this cricket-obsessed country because of rising violence by Islamic extremists. Police gave conflicting accounts of the investigation.
Please, stop it.Oh, that's why it isn't being investigated or reported.
One top police official said several suspects had been taken into custody in connection with the attack. Hours later, however, another denied anyone had been detained or even questioned. Islamic militants were widely suspected in the attack, but authorities did not explicitly say that.... --more--"
And then, magically, after week and weeks of daily stories on Pakistan, one is absent from my paper today. How about that?

Yes, the COVER UPS CONTINUE in my CRIMINAL ZIONIST "newspaper."
"Bomb kills 7 police in Pakistan" by Associated Press | March 7, 2009
PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A suicide car bomber killed seven police officers in volatile northwestern Pakistan early today, police said.
Oh, where there is a TRUCE, huh?
The bombing happened at a roadblock where police were checking vehicles traveling from Khyber tribal region into Peshawar, the regional capital not far from the Afghan border.
Police official Safwat Ghayur said several officers were wounded when the car carrying the attacker was motioned to stop. He said it was unclear whether the roadblock was the target.
Al Qaeda and Taliban militants have staged numerous attacks in northwestern Pakistan, with police a favorite target. Many of the militants are believed to be involved in attacks on US troops in Afghanistan. Last Tuesday, gunmen attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore, killing seven Pakistanis.
Have you had enough, readers? I have.
If you haven't, Taliban call the shots in Pakistan tourist spot
