As if the world does not have enough bad news to digest these days... After the U.S found bin laden shacked up in a secure compound next door to Pakistans military elite, you would think the pakistanis might have the good sense to lay low and keep out of trouble for a while. Not this lot, they just keep biting the hand that feeds them.

The most senior US military officer has accused Pakistan's spy agency of supporting the Haqqani group in planning and conducting last week's attack on the US embassy in Kabul.
How long can the United states keep up the false pretence that they have a good working relationship with pakistan? When the truth is that they are their worse enemy.

Well, the article is on the BBC website so its not exactly unbiased. You know when stories like this appear its because they want the public to think a particular way, and this one is nothing more than propaganda. The article could go into more details, like the exact involvement that the ISI had, ie was it just a rogue element? But it doesn't. We are given a quote with no actual evidence, which we all know full well they routinely lie about things.

I'm not saying that this is a lie, but theres nowhere near enough to go on to believe it.

Not sure why you're blaming this on bias at the BBC, they're quoting senior officials at the pentagon and CIA.

Here's another article:

Apparently the Pentagon has relayed a threat to the Pakistani government that US troops are ready to go into Pakistan if they do not get ISI under control.

Pakistan's response; " You will lose an ally."

The truth is Pakistan isn't an ally. Their words are hollow.

ATS likes to fantasize about WW3 involving Iran, Israel and usually Russia helping Iran, but if you want a realistic tinder box for a massive regional war, with nukes and millions dead, instead look at Pakistan.

If the US goes into Pakistan and they respond with hostility, its likely India will join in. Heck Iran even has a beef with Pakistani militants and would probably take advantage of such a conflict.

Such a conflict would potentially dwarf the 1st Gulf War, Vietnam or Korea. We are talking a darn big war, one where nukes have a good chance of being used and the NATO charter gets invoked again.

It wouldn't be WW3, but it would feel like it to many, especially if included in the greater War on Terror and NATO intervention in the Arab Spring.

Pakistan was an ally. A fine ally. The political leaders followed America around everywhere. But right now, Pakistan is in jeopardy. You can read about the MQM. The floods. The poverty. Pakistan has been turned inside out because of supporting the US. The US had provided NO help to Pakistan when the Indians attacked. The US tried to stop their nuclear programme and pressured France into backing down. I believe that Pakistan will fall to the Chinese, which is probably better for them, rather into America's arms.
