Obama Administration Bombs Pakistan!

Obama Administration Bombs Pakistan!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! SHAME ON OBAMA!

MORE OF THE SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!




Two remote U.S. missile strikes that killed at least 20 people at suspected terrorist hideouts in northwestern Pakistan yesterday offered the first tangible sign of President Obama's commitment to sustained military pressure on the terrorist groups there, even though Pakistanis broadly oppose such unilateral U.S. actions.

The shaky Pakistani government of Asif Ali Zardari has expressed hopes for warm relations with Obama, but members of Obama's new national security team have already telegraphed their intention to make firmer demands of Islamabad than the Bush administration, and to back up those demands with a threatened curtailment of the plentiful military aid that has been at the heart of U.S.-Pakistani ties for the past three decades.

The separate strikes on two compounds, coming three hours apart and involving five missiles fired from Afghanistan-based Predator drone aircraft, were the first high-profile hostile military actions taken under Obama's four-day-old presidency. A Pakistani security official said in Islamabad that the strikes appeared to have killed at least 10 insurgents, including five foreign nationals and possibly even "a high-value target" such as a senior al-Qaeda or Taliban official.

It remained unclear yesterday whether Obama personally authorized the strike or was involved in its final planning, but military officials have previously said the White House is routinely briefed about such attacks in advance.

At his daily White House briefing, press secretary Robert Gibbs declined to answer questions about the strikes, saying, "I'm not going to get into these matters." Obama convened his first National Security Council meeting on Pakistan and Afghanistan yesterday afternoon, after the strike.

  1. That's some real "change" there. This whole 'war on terror' is nothing but a CIA orchestrated artifice. The whole idea that people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran pose any serious military or 'terrorist' threat to the U.S. is absurd.

  2. The enemy is Islam itself. We are paying the price for the failings of our ancestors in not winning the crusades.

    Were Muslims to hold the power in America - meaning police power and political power - all other religions would be suppressed. It's what they do when they are in control.

    Islam needs to be banned on Earth. Mars needs people; send them there!

  3. If the U.S. government was truly concerned about battling 'islamic terrorism' they would simply ban all muslim immigrants into the nation and deport those already here as 'national security risks', similar how they incarcerated german and japanese-americans during WWII; instead of bombing people in iraq, pakistan etc, which achieves nothing.

    They won't do that because, islam is simply being employed and used as an excuse by the U.S. government/CIA to erode the civil liberties of americans and to wage war in other nations who pose no military threat to America.
