[url="http://www.hindustantimes.com/Suspected-US-drone-strikes-kill-at-least-29/H1-Article1-504721.aspx"]Suspected Pakistan National Bird strikes kill at least 29 in Pakistan[/url]
Quote:"At least eight drones took part in the attack, and they have fired some 18 missiles at three training camps of Taliban, their two vehicles and some bunkers," said a local intelligence official that spoke on condition of anonymity.



Taliban militants have fired at the US aircraft from some of these bunkers. The militants shot down one drone on January 24.



"According to the initial reports we have received from various areas, at least 29 people have been killed while around a dozen more are injured," said the official about Tuesday's attack, adding that the death toll might rise.



People are buried under the debris of the demolished house, but no one dares to carry out rescue work since the drones are still flying in the area, the official said over phone. "Almost all those killed are Taliban (fighters)."



The US has intensified its campaign to target militant hideouts with drone strikes in Pakistan's rugged tribal region since an Al-Qaeda double agent killed five CIA officials and two private security contractors in a suicide bombing in the Afghan province of Khost on December 30.
From paki fora on current Karachi situation

Quote:Zulfiqar Mirza said today that Amry may be called in for restoration of peace in Karachi. The people of Karachi must realized that we have enough problems.



ANP/MQM have all the responsibility ...ANP have started this fresh violence by killing MQM unit incharge in Qabza Colony...and in retaliation killing has started.



People dressed in Shirt-Trousers (Urdu speaking) are being dragged out of buses and beaten by ethnic group in Banaras, Site area, Suhrab Goth etc.



The root of the problem is newly built road whichlinks North Nazimabad to Orangi Town ...the road passes through a small mountainous area known as "Kati Pahari". City Govt. has started a Bus Service from Sadar to Orangi Town by using this short route.....which ANP backed transporters think ..a direct attack on their "mini buses" business. The armed men have taken positions on this Katti Pahari and fires on public/Buses. MQM is responding with target killing of ANP workers involved in giving support to transporters...ANP again retaliates with killings ...and the story goes on.



The Govt. is actually enjoying the situation....let them fight. See two rangers got shots from the same Kati Pahari and have pulled out of the area. If they were given orders, the whole area would be made secure in just few hours as told by DG Rangers. Police and Rangers are clearly instructed to be quite.



The media program are again fueling the fire as yesterday Haji Adeel of ANP said on AAJ TV that No one can force us to withdraw from Karachi and if someone think like this ...it must be [color="#FF0000"]keep in mind that all those came from India must also go back to India or sea[/color]. He said Govt should start disarming movement from "90" etc.

Quote:AS Pakistan’s problems deepen, and its politicians carry on with their bickering, the country’s air is heavy with discord. However, somehow rising above the din is an emphatic message : Washington must offer more market access to Pakistani exports.



This call has been issued for several years by trade policymakers and industrialists representing major export sectors. Yet in recent months it has been made from the highest government levels, including top officials at the foreign ministry and President Zardari. One even hears the market access mantra uttered by municipal leaders. Speaking at Columbia and Harvard universities in November, Karachi nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal implored America to make Pakistani exports duty-free.



Pakistan’s wish for freer trade with the United States is understandable. [color="#FF0000"]Unfortunately, it is also highly unlikely to be fulfilled anytime soon.[/color]

....
Quote:One reason is the low value of Pakistan’s exports. When importing nations bestow a preferential status on international exports, they do so because the goods are deemed of sufficiently high value to warrant such treatment. However, about 80 per cent of Pakistan’s manufactured exports, and roughly two-thirds of its total exports, consist of low-value, low-tech textiles and clothing. In an era of cutting-edge technologies and services, nations are much more likely to waive import duties on coveted electronics than on towels and T-shirts.

The militant commander alleged that the US soldier, whom his fighters kidnapped from Afghanistan’s Paktika province near the border with Pakistan’s troubled South Waziristan in June 2009, had admitted his involvement in several raids in Afghanistan. “Since he has confessed to all charges against him, our Islamic court had announced death sentence for him,” the Taliban leader claimed.

Quote:ISLAMABAD: The top brass of Pakistan Army is all set to undergo a reshaping process with the retirement of at least 12 three-star generals, including four corps commanders, during the ongoing calendar year, warranting promotion of major generals and the necessary reshuffle.



Three of the lieutenant generals, including incumbent Director-General of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Lt-Gen Ahmad Shuja Pasha, are scheduled to retire next month. However, according to informed sources, Lt-Gen Pasha in all probability will get an extension ‘in the interest of continuity’.



A senior security official told Dawn that the army chief did not need to send a summary for extension in the tenure of a three-star general. He cited the example of Lt-Gen Masood Aslam, Corps Commander for Peshawar, who was to retire last year but was given an extension by the army chief.



The other extensions in the recent history of Pakistan Army were of Lt-Gen Hamid Javed, chief of staff to former president Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf, and the chief of Strategic Plans Division, Lt-Gen Khalid Kidwai.



Lt-Gen Kidwai was due to retire in 2006, but was given extensions more than once due to the technical nature of his assignment. He continues to be the chief of the SPD even after completion of his extended term as lieutenant general.



The incumbent ISI chief will reach the age of superannuation on March 18. Others who are due to retire next month include Lt-Gen Tanvir Tahir, Inspector General of Communications and Information Technology, General Headquarters (GHQ); and Lt-Gen Mohammad Ashraf Saleem, Commander of Air Defence, Pakistan Army.



Lt-Gen Ahsan Azhar Hayat, currently serving as Inspector General of Training and Evaluation at the GHQ, will retire in the middle of March.



Another four lieutenant generals, including two corps commanders, will be retiring in May. They are Corps Commander for Lahore Lt-Gen Ijaz Ahmad Bakshi, Corps Commander for Mangla and Chairman of the Special Support Group, Lt-Gen Nadeem Ahmed, former Corps Commander for Mangla and incumbent Deputy Chairman Earthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Authority (Erra) Lt-Gen Sajjad Akram, and Lt-Gen Sikandar Afzal, force commander for the United Nations mission in Liberia last year.



Others who are scheduled to retire during the current year are Lt-Gen Masood Aslam, Corps Commander for Peshawar, who is already on extension, Lt-Gen Shahid Iqbal, Corps Commander for Karachi, Lt-Gen Zahid Hussain, Quarter Master General (QMG), and Lt-Gen Mohammad Asghar, Rector of National University of Science and Technology (NUST).

Ik aag ka duryya hai…



India-Pakistan relations have been strained right since the birth of two countries. We have fought three wars.



People living across borders with relatives on either side have been in pain and anguish due to strife between the two countries. Many issues, including Kashmir, have been source of friction between the neighbors. Even the issue of terrorism is an outcome of the Kashmir problem.



The other reason behind terrorism manifested itself after the Americans armed the Taliban to confront the Russian occupation of Afghanistan in the late 1970s.



The US created extremist outfits by giving them millions of dollars and tons of armaments to join the anti-Russian forces. After the defeat of Russian forces, these outfits turned on countries of the region. They have created havoc in the region by acting like the Frankenstein monster that turns on its own creator.



The Pakistani government or people are not supporting any terrorism outfit. Some terrorist groups are operating on their own and, to eliminate these terrorists, the government of Pakistan is trying its best but a lot of other factors are in play here.



For example, it is alleged with some justification that India, Israel and US are supplying training and arms to terrorist outfits to destabilize Pakistan. There are training camps in Afghanistan doing that. This is a fact no one can deny as interference in Balochistan is a clear proof of this. Peace between India and Pakistan hinges on settlement of the core issue Kashmir. Though India has agreed to talk after nearly two years, [color="#FF0000"][size="5"]*[/size]these talks would probably be just talks as India is not sincere in solving the Kashmir issue or the problems of water.[size="5"]*[/size][/color] -S.
