This would not surprise me a bit. Now that OBL has been taken out from within Pakistan, the Govt starts advertising its policies to warn its neighbor India? But why?
ISLAMABAD: Taking a serious view of assertions made by the Indian military leadership since the U.S. operation in Pakistan to nab al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, the Pakistan Army on Thursday warned that any “misadventure of this kind will be responded to very strongly.” Earlier in the day, Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir said mimicking U.S. unilateral action in Pakistan would result in a “terrible catastrophe.”

I honestly hope the US is just using Pakistan as a distraction right now, because surely they must realize that if they push too hard they will likely start a nuclear conflict.
But.............we might really be that stupid. I have certainly heard interviews with people accusing us of high level incompetence, and I guess I dont want to believe we are that dumb.
