Pakistan cuts off US forces’ fuel supplies

7 Sep 2008

PESHAWAR: Pakistan blocked a major fuel supply route for western forces in Afghanistan on Saturday in response to a raid by US forces into northwest Pakistan this week, the defence minister said.

US commandos attacked suspected militants inside Pakistani territory on Wednesday, killing 20 people including women and children, Pakistani officials said, and drawing a furious response from the Pakistani government.

  1. France criticises missile strikes in Pakistan

    Updated at: 1915 PST, Tuesday, September 09, 2008

    PARIS: France warned Tuesday that missile strikes by suspected US drones in Pakistani tribal areas were undermining international efforts in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    “Not only are these creating human tragedies but also situations that have counterproductive effects on the political dynamics that we would like to see, and that means a partnership between Afghanistan, Pakistan and the international community,” said foreign ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier.

    At least 21 people including women and children were killed Monday in a missile strike by suspected US drones on a Pakistan tribal town near the Afghan border, officials told reporters.

    The drone fired several missiles that hit a house in North Waziristan, they said, in the fourth such strike in the rugged tribal region in almost a week.

    “Anything that creates suffering in the civilian population creates problems in trying to reach an understanding and an acceptance of these populations of the international presence in the region,” said the foreign ministry spokesman.

    Chevallier did not single out the United States for criticism, but referred to the “bombings that took place in Pakistan and left civilian casualties, in particular in the Pakistani tribal areas on Monday.”

    Bush ordered raids in Pakistan
    “We have to be more assertive. Orders have been issued”. . . . It is unclear precisely what legal authorities the United States has invoked to conduct even limited ground raids in a friendly country.

    Palin agrees with Obama
    “We have got to have all options out there on the table.” That response put [Palin] in line with a view expressed by Sen. Barack Obama, now the Democratic presidential nominee, in August 2007, when he stirred controversy by saying that if he were elected president, he would be willing to attack inside Pakistan with or without approval from the Pakistani government.
