Pakistan's military commanders have ordered their troops to return fire if they come under attack from Nato forces, raising the prospect of further deadly clashes along the country's border with Afghanistan


This could yet ascend into more chaos considering the amount of decisions Pakistan has made entirely on the NATO attack last week where 24 soldiers were fired upon and killed. Originally, Pakistan responded to the earlier engagement by:


blocking the transit of Nato supplies through its territory, ending the US use of an airbase and is boycotting next week's high-level international meeting on Afghanistan in the German city of Bonn.


So, with the new directions to return fire towards NATO troops, i foresee a probable war, if not clash between Pakistan and NATO. Lets hope things don't get to serious.

They need orders to return fire when they are being fired upon? I thought that would be a no brainer.

Yeah, i agree. I don't know who in the right mind would stand there and be shot at while not responding. But, since, the General has now ordered it, it can be argued now that Pakistan is getting fed up with everything. It just seems that Russia, China, Pakistan and Iran have had enouh of NATO's #

It is about time someone did. NATO is nothing more than a precurser to a world government. We should stop all funding and withdraw from it immediately. The way they keep pushing I will not be surprised if it turns into another world war before the next decade.

Yes, but is it escalates ... can we say a bad clash, a potential war. Remember, Pak has Nukes, as does NATO. They have to play their cards carefully so to speak. In today's age, we can't just go around firing at each other, otherwise, someones gonna get pissed and that will be the spark.

Seven Eleven? you should come here in my neck of the woods, Indians own the gas stations, Pakistanis have taken over the none profit major hospital here, they are brought in with visas and given jobs as Doctors and technicians including spouses.

That is what is going on here in GA, I guess Pakistanis are good in the medical field more so than our own American graduated doctors.

The irony, perhpas that is where all the tax payer dollars goes in Pakistan to educate Doctors to take jobs in the US

Hell no, Nato is killing our future medical workers
let them fight back, so they can have a chance in our hosptials.

I know. The incident that sparked this all off though hasn't even had blame apportioned yet though. Both sides seem to be firmly in the belief that they were right. I have to say though, if i was a Pakistani grunt manning a border crossing, why in the world would i bother attacking afghan military patrols? The whole thing seems skewed, whichever coloured glasses you are wearing to look at the incident - that is to say it doesn't look right from the Pakistani side or from the NATO / Afghan side.

I have to say though, Pakistan would never ever launch nukes at NATO - quite simply they know they would be totally and absolutely destroyed as a nation if they went down that course of action.

Now, launching nukes against India is far more plausible (but equally unlikely).

Have they though? The Afghan's that called in the airstrike are adamant that they were being fired on by the Pakistani's.

The simple fact is we may never know who fired first here. That is important as in this particular case NATO were either correct or incorrect in their actions.

Agreed. It is perhaps suicidal for Pakistan to fire of Nukes, however, they do have the backing of China, which is allied with Russia and Iran. What would happen if NATO went into Pakistan? Would China react? Will Pak fire nukes. It seems though that the middle east is just the melting pot where another war has the potential to happen.

True, they do have the backing of both Russia and China. However, if Pakistan ever used nukes against NATO they would be abandoned faster than even the french have ever surrendered before!

That may be true, however, if i was the leader of Pakistan while it is being invaded by NATO, why not go out with a bang? You know, the country will go down anyway, why not take out the attackers with you?

Chavez has been pissing in the US wheaties for some time now. One of its reasons for picking on Columbia, is because of Columbias allaince with the US. Also, Venzuela has been arming up the last 5 years with Chavez buying billions of dollars worth of new military hardware from China and Russia.
