I agree with your assessment that a 15 man team is not going in there to take something out. And your old run of the mill terrorists don't blaze into airplane hangars with rocket launchers....they go into heavily populated areas with crude bombs attached to their chests.

to me, sounds more like Delta Force
dressed as insurgents.

wonder what their escape plan is???

Negotiations with the Pakis to allow them
to leave with the tail section of the helo ??
In exchange they release all hostages
(Pak military personnel).

I'd go with a hostage negotiation...and who knows maybe they have some kind of blackmail material that can be used against a high ranking official to ensure cooperation

Thosse security breaches are always highely suspicious

It is believed the terrorists entered the base through a Pakistan air force museum next to the base, which has lower security.

There will be ZERO hostages. ZERO evidence. With that said, what do you think is next, suicide? not likely. I say the compound will get bombed by you know who and will take anyone left alive out.

Come on,this is too obvious...first the OBL Raid in a Military Town...now "Terrorists" (almost) take over a Military Base?

The Goal with this attack is only to make the Pakistani look even more incompetent,so as to show the World that they can´t be trusted to stop "Terrorists" taking over WMD´s...

Its so simple,thats its not even funny anymore...

Very much doubt it is any kind of special forces. Whoever they are, they are stupid beyond belief and most likely the majority of them are already history.

YOU are absolutely right. With that in mind, china said that an attack on pakistan would be war, right? So they said. So, what do you think china will do? Now with that said, If china does nothing or just warns some more then you will know EMMEDIATELY that it is the ELITES doings and the countries are only puppets to their end means. This is not the peoples of china's fault or usa peoples or russia peoples. IT is the ELITES who are orchastrating this whole thing and we the people are funding the whole sherade. did i say PEACE.

so basically what this boils down to is,

the CIA with the authorization from the US President
is blatantly attacking Pakistan's military infrastructure
and personnel by an Al Queda proxy.

Same exact thing happened in Libya.

This is the reason why Gen. Betray-us
was sent to the CIA.


The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's friend's enemy of theirs.


Who said the president authorized this one?

This wasn't an attack on Pakistan's military infrastructure, it was an "instigated" diversion.

There is an extremely urgent need to gather more intelligence on a serious threat that has originated within the Pakistani military, and yes, surprise, the Chinese are involved as well, you can expect as the CIA gets closer to those involved, and/or capture military officials involved, that the Chinese WILL be much more forceful with their saber rattling.

But, go with whatever you want to believe.

although i'd be willing to bet they are on a government payroll, quick use asset for such an event.
wouldn''t be the first time, won't be the last. local militias(loosely) are perfect for these kinds of PR stunts, if you will.
many variables take shape afterwards when the dust settles, some will be beneficial to whomever enacted this.
this is a game of chess, simply put, the two players are moving their pawns, and have been for sometime.
one of the players was even willing to sacrifice some of it's pieces to get an upper hand in the match.
only difference is now the Queen is becoming involved, ever increasing.

The war in Pakistan is becoming a proxy war against Communism alongaside it's enemy of an enemy is my friend, Islamic Terrorism. and the front is opening up. Georgia/Russia, N/S Korea, Afghanistan/Iraq/Iran.
China will not directly engage, but will allow it's subordinates to act out on it's behalf until it has no choice but to move it's own pieces, a mistake America has made by putting itself out there in such a way as to make it an easy target without any strategy it seems.

interesting quote from your link:



Irfan ul Haq, a spokesman for the Pakistani navy, told AFP news agency: "One of our officers and one Navy personnel have been martyred."


I thought it was the terrorists that referred to dying as martyrdom...not the military!
