United Nations Raises Security Level in Pakistan


www.voanews.com

The United Nations has raised its security level in Pakistan, ordering the children of U.N. employees out of the country.

U.N. officials Thursday said dependent children of staff will no longer be allowed to live with their parents in Pakistan.

The measure comes as security deteriorates in the country. More than 50 people were killed last month during a massive truck bombing at the Marriott Hotel in the capital, Islamabad.

Why now?

It's been 12 days since the The Marriott Bombing. Why now, and not immediately after the bombing? Sounds like someone knows the situation in Pakistan may change dramatically, which may be rather obvious after the recent escalation of terror-related events.

It may have something to do with the 'Atomic Trade with India' bill the Senate passed last night while screwing around waiting for the 'Financial Lifeboat' vote.




H.R.7081 : To approve the United States-India Agreement for Cooperation on Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, and for other purposes.

Here we go...

Sounds a lot like Iraq. A few minor skirmishes here and there along the boarder and then suddenly out of no where it seems we're in a full scale air campaign.

This is going to blow up real soon. They're already conditioning us that Pakistan is harboring all the bad guys that we want and can't get to. We had a UAV shot down in their territory. We've attacked and killed a number of individuals on their side of the boarder. The news media is slowly getting us used to the idea that attacking Pakistan has been going on for a while, it's nothing new and nothing to get riled up about.

Most people believe we're only fighting one war as it is and the administration is exploiting that belief to avoid taking heat. If an assault on Pakistan began, the general population would flick on CNN and just see us attacking more brown people in funny hats in a desert setting, AKA; same war. I think if average Americans knew they were on the verge of starting a THIRD war; they would go ape shat. They won't raise an eye brow of concern until Israel starts crumbling from any number of aggressors that we poked at. As long as Jesus land is safe, bombs away.

"Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, and for other purposes."
very.. interesting choice of words, indeed..

Here's some info about the India-US Nuclear deal-


India-US celebrate nuclear deal;China, Pakistan ask questions

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will be in New Delhi this weekend to celebrate a hard-fought nuclear deal that to its critics strikes at the heart of the global non-proliferation regime by allowing India access to nuclear technology despite its refusal to sign the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty (NPT) and give up a weapons programme.

China and Pakistan are not amused although both stepped aside as they watched an unstoppable Bush administration push the deal through the International Atomic Energy Agency and then the Nuclear Suppliers Group in one of its few foreign policy successes.

US rules out India-like nuke deal with Pakistan

WASHINGTON: The US has ruled out an India like civil nuclear deal with Pakistan for the present, saying India's case "was unique in the respect of a long history of Indian behaviour".

"At the moment, I'm not aware of a contemplation of a similar such deal at this time with Pakistan," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Thursday when asked about Islamabad's demand for such a deal.

As far as the situation goes in Pakistan,
there were more U.S. airstrikes today.

'US strike' hits Pakistan village

A US strike on a Pakistani village near the Afghan border has killed at least nine people including suspected foreign militants, Pakistani sources say.

Initial reports said at least 20 people had died when an unmanned aircraft (drone) fired on the village in North Waziristan region.

Suspected US missile kills 20 militants in Pakistan: officials

MIRANSHAH, Pakistan (AFP) — A suspected US missile destroyed a house in a Pakistan tribal region bordering Afghanistan Friday, killing around 20 Al-Qaeda-linked militants, mostly foreign nationals, officials said.

The incident in the lawless district of North Waziristan is the latest in a string of attacks on extremist targets on Pakistani soil that have raised tensions between Islamabad and Washington.

Pakistan officials: Suspected US strikes kill 12

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) — Two suspected U.S. missile strikes Friday on villages close to the border with Afghanistan killed at least 12 people, most of them militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

American forces recently ramped up cross-border operations against Taliban and al-Qaida militants in Pakistan's border zone with Afghanistan — a region considered a likely hiding place for Osama bin Laden.

And this is worth mentioning-

Pakistan official says country at war

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — A senior Pakistani official says the government is fighting a war that will continue until the country is free of terrorism.

Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik said in remarks broadcast Friday that previous Pakistani military campaigns against Islamic militants were halted too soon.

He said the current government will take operations to their "logical conclusion" and that "this war will continue until we make Pakistan terrorism-free."

Good luck with that Pakistan!
Especially when your spy agency works with the enemy...

Spanish report ties Pakistan spy agency to Taliban (by FredT)

MADRID, Spain - Western intelligence agencies have long suspected that elements of Pakistan's spy service have aided the Taliban in Afghanistan, but a Spanish government report leaked to the media appears to be the first published assessment that spells out such cooperation.

The August 2005 report says Pakistan's shadowy Inter-Services Intelligence agency helped the Taliban procure roadside bombs and may even have provided training and intelligence to the Taliban in camps set up on Pakistan


The way the conflict has escalated in Pakistan and the
steady increase in news reports reminds me of the
lead-up to the (albeit brief) Georgian-Russian War.
