Interesting development... I wonder what the MSM are trying to spin or at least what ground work they are trying to put into place.. I wonder if will we hear this is supported by a new puppeteer or confirmation of input from an exiting one? (i.e China or other nation)

It was not a militant attack; it's obvious where these soldiers came from and who trained them. It's also obvious whats going on and the cat has been let out of the bag.

Yup. It was not a militant attack. I was pointing out how the BBC article presupposes that it was a militant attack... and then details how un-militant like they were ... but still maintains that they were "militants".

They were targeting a military base so they are not terrorists!

What a BS comment. Terrorists highest prizes are killing soldiers.

Yea, but in this particular incident, what terrorists are you talking about?

This was a well co-ordinated attack. I have read an independant report, due to the nature of my work, that is not for release to MSM. The size of the team, their choice of weaponry, tactics and level of professionalism, has a Special Forces flavour to it. Plus, 6 men were able to defend a postion for 17 hours, and 2 escaped to fight again.

If this the shape of things to come, we are in for a bumpy ride.

Or, if you read between the lines, rightly or wrongly, was it staged in order to illustrate the apparent inability of Pakistan to protect military (nuclear) facilities?????

care to elaborate?

who are they?


they put a hurt on the base but seems like all were killed.

not a real military operation, if you ask me.

makes sense for a whack job terror group, tho.

The flavour of the team gives me pause to wonder what was so important that someone would risk losing that much experience on what appears to be a suicide mission.. especially when that experience could be used to train up hundreds more..

I can't see a strategist throwing that away unless they where getting something more valuable in return.. and I do ponder on what that could be..

Yes, food for thought. Then again, was it a one-way mission. At least two were wearing suicide vests, so they did not intend to return. Getting inside the mind of a fanatic can be difficult at best. The end result of their training could have been their ultimate sacrifice to the cause.

Manchurian candidates trickle treating perhaps???

I have also pondered that possibility and when thinking along those lines it makes me wonder what level of skills their trainers have and the type of backing they would need to achieve this level of sophistication..

I suspect the rabbit hole on this one goes a long way down..

There are, unfortuneatly, many videos and books available on the open market that offer advice on advanced infantry tactics. Plus, money can buy an awful lot these days. Retired Russian soldiers can be bought reletively cheap these days. Please excuse spelling.

Training these guys would not be overly expensive either.

Right now anything is possible.. I personally find it hard to understand this waste of skill and training unless the return is something more valuable..

I guess so... if that was the case then I would question why it has taken them so long to get this far and what has changed.. each layer just seem to leave more questions unanswered for me.

Ps. Your points are very clear
(if I am not mistaken even for a Briton in France

Your assumption is correct, although I am currently working in Bavaria on a military project.
Why now? Hum, sudden influx of funds, support or tech? Hard to say. I still think that it has black op undertones and is acting as a precursor to future events. Hint, hint.

The airbase attacked was the home base of 4 US
Orion recon planes recently acquired by Pakistan.
1 of them was in a hangar, 2 of them were on the
tarmac and last 1 whereabouts unknown but quite
possibly was in the air at the time of the attack.

2 of the Orions were destroyed and 1 was heavily
damaged with small arms fire.

The main use of these aircraft were for Naval
radar capabilities off Pakistan's southern coast.
Taking them out of commission could leave
pakistan's southern coast radar free and
open for invasion from the south.

Now why would Al Queda give the lives of 10
terrorists to take out these planes when Al Queda
doesn't even have a Navy ??? They are already
in country. These planes would have been
irrelevant to Al Queda or the Taliban objectives.

A more suitable target for Al Queda would have
been one of the US Drone bases who fire missiles
at the Taliban and Al Queda in the northern province.
Karachi airbase did not have drone aircraft to my
knowledge.

Everything is wrong with the official story. It does
not fit. Just like the OBL story did not fit either.
