This video from CNN in the USA got this caption from “civilsocietypakistan” on YouTube:
Thousands of civilians, including women and children have been killed in Afghanistan and Tribal areas of Pakistan. All this is happening under the cover of “War against Terror”. Are these women and children terrorists? Or those who take their lives are terrorists and extremists?
Musharraf has no regard for the blood of Pakistanis. He and his corrupt army generals owned an American attack on Bajour (January 2007) when 80 children were killed, while asleep, by a drone. Now he has opened a front in Waziristan and other tribal areas of Pakistan.

Pakistani truckers halt supplies to NATO forces
A major organisation of Pakistani truck drivers say they will stop carrying supplies to US and NATO forces in Afghanistan, following a string of attacks by Taliban militants. The decision by the Khyber Transport Association is expected to severely hinder NATO and US supplies.
From The News in Pakistan:
“We feel that our drivers and vehicles are not safe anymore. Also, as tribesmen, we are concerned over frequent attacks by the US drones in our tribal areas, and that is why we want to stop the supply of goods to the US-led allied forces in Afghanistan,” Shakir Afridi, president of the KTA, told The News after the meeting. The KTA president said 3,000 to 4,000 trucks, trailers and tankers, which made the major share of vehicles transporting the Nato supplies, were owned by the tribesmen of the Khyber Agency alone.
The Deutsche Welle item continues:
Last week alone pro-Taliban militants torched around 300 trucks, trailers and containers in raids on terminals in Peshawar, where vehicles hauling cargo for Western troops were parked before crossing into Afghanistan.
Duh … NATO and George W. Bush have known that already for a long time. And it has not prevented them from being chums with the dictators. Like they were chums with Pakistani dictator Musharraf before the people drove him away. And with Saddam Hussein in the 1980s …
