It says that it is the first attack since the inauguration. there was a cease fire during the inauguration.
All this is saying that things have now heated up again between Pakistan and Israel and the cease fire is over.
Reminding the US how many problems Obama has inherited and has to deal with.
This doesn't have anything to do with Obama except the timeline, that this is the first international incident to come along in his adminitration.
Stop proprogating garbage, pay attention to the info. And take some anti-anxiety medicine for crying out loud.

Oh, I forgot everything is the fault of the US.
Well maybe we shouldn't help anyone, on the face of this Earth, ever again.
Hell, they will only turn on us eventually anyway, so why bother.
I think Obama should come out and say this to peoples of da world just to get a reaction.

Obama's First Missile Attacks
(visit the link for the full news article)
The strike was the first on Pakistani territory since the inauguration of President Barrack Obama.
Pakistani leaders had expressed hope Obama would halt the attacks, more than 30 of which have been launched since the middle of last year, reportedly killing several senior militants.

"I understand that President Musharraf has his own challenges," Obama said, "but let me make this clear. There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al Qaeda leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."
I really hope Obama is sincere when he talks about striking in Pakistan . this is a real mess in there with all the corruption the tribal lands and the mountains who help Taliban officers to settle camps hide weapons prepare attacks etc...The only language they understand is force, no matter what the peace-talkers will say ( every holy war is about a bunch of extremists who don't want to talk or negotiate ) So the day they gather and prepare some ugly s*** for the West they'd better watch out for a Tomahawk

A whole mess of them have come out of Pakistan to attack our troops in Afghanistan, including US military bases there which are considered to be US soil as long as they are operational. Additionally they have constantly attacked India.

If you had no bases in Afghanistan they would not be attacking them.
