Pakistan's Opposition leader defies house arrest order


www.radioaustralianews.net.au

Police say former Pakistani prime minister and opposition leader Nawaz Sharif has been placed under house arrest in the city of Lahore.

Police officer Ijaz Ahmed says Mr Sharif has been ordered not to leave his house in Lahore for three days.

Police also say similar restrictions have been imposed on several other opposition leaders including former cricketer turned politician Imran Khan and the main Islamist party Jamat-e-Islami chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed.

Mr Sharif has urged a crowd gathered outside his house in Lahore to ignore a ban and march on the capital.

Our South Asia correspondent Sally Sara says the city of Lahore has been placed on lockdown.

Police have put up barricades to stop demonstrators marching towards the capital, Islamabad.

Pakistan is going the straight way into the domestic war. this is a very serious issue. the tensions in this area are higher and higher - whole region is affected - from Israel, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan Indie and Caucasian states.

at least three countries are having the nukes. Pakistan as we all know is one of them. the unrest there is going to shake the entire middle asia.

and step by step it is going in that direction. the tommorrow protests could be the green light for a big troubles.

and on the begining US and EU won't be ready to help. they have a lot of own problems with economic crises and ongoing wars and protests in own countries.

and the other issue is if they will want to help at all? the war can be best choice for all of them to get rid of the domestic problems. wars were always starting in the time of crises. this is not a coincidence. whole world waits for the Pakistan to start and to infect the neighbours. and WWIII is open. to please the Bilderbergs...

About 20 vehicles have been destroyed when unknown militants fired several rockets at a NATO supply terminal in northwestern Pakistan.

Local police officials told Press TV correspondent that unknown militants launched several rockets at a terminal in Peshawar in the North-West Frontier Province. They said that the attack started at midnight on Saturday and continued through Sunday.

Fire broke out after the attack and burnt twenty vehicles, which were expected to deliver supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, Pakistan suspended truck shipments of US military supplies through the famed Khyber Pass after lawyers and political parties launched their anti-government campaign dubbed "Long March" for the restoration of deposed judges.

how do you read in that context the following:

www.nytimes.com...

Thomas Donnelly, a defense policy expert with the conservative American Enterprise Institute, said he believed that the Obama administration would be seeking to come up with “a multiwar, multioperation, multifront, walk-and-chew-gum construct.”

“We have to do many things simultaneously if our goal is to remain the ultimate guarantor of international security,” Mr. Donnelly said. “The hedge against a rising China requires a very different kind of force than fighting an irregular war in Afghanistan or invading Iraq or building partnership capacity in Africa.”
