you and me both

if this was an attack by the US,
you can expect retaliation from
both Pak and China.

Obama could not be that stupid.
Can he ???

I was going to say that I don't think he is that stupid
but then again he is going on a state visit to Britain..

Which I guess would be a good time to secure cooperation on whatever this game is that they are playing.

Seems like Pakistan should get China to protect them from homegrown terrorism.

The Sky headline lists Reuters as the source . . . but, I can't even find a mention at any of the Reuters sites?


EDIT - Found it . . . and Jam beat me to it.

It quotes the following though



Gunshots fired from sophisticated weapons were also heard following the blasts.


Interesting comment

That comment certainly got my attention...
I really wonder what it means or what doors they are leaving open....

Good question - chances are they wouldn't be blowing up their own aircraft during training exercises. There are also 1000s of people protesting US drone strokes in Karachi today. Certainly appears the patience of the Pakinstani people are wearing thin.
