From The Express Tribune in Pakistan today:
Nato investigating Pakistan cross-border attack
KURRAM AGENCY: Nato said Thursday it was investigating claims by Pakistani security officials that three of their soldiers were killed in a cross-border attack by coalition helicopters based in Afghanistan.
Nato helicopters strike security check post in Kurram
Three Pakistani security personnel have been killed and three have been injured in an attack by Nato-led International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) helicopters on a checkpoint in Kurram Agency.
Reports coming out of the area say Nato targeted the checkpoint in Mandato Kandaho, which is about five kilometres inside Pakistan.
AFP quotes a senior security official as saying it was an unprovoked attack that took place early morning. He said Nato helicopters entered Pakistani airspace and targeted a paramilitary checkpost killing three soldiers and wounding three others.
This is the third time in a week that Nato helicopters have violated Pakistani airspace.
Islamabad has protested against the violations on two occasions. A protest against this recent attack is yet to be seen.
Earlier in 2008, an American jet bombed a Pakistani checkpoint in Mohmand Agency killing 11 Pakistani soldiers. The attack caused outrage across Pakistan.
Some comments by Pakistani readers there:
If the army or the government doesn’t take any steps now! We are completely sold out, might as well just let America invade us! Not like it already hasn’t!

It is a test of our Army. some non sense people invite army to take over the country but thats not army’s duty. Here comes his duty to safeguard Pakistan’s territory.They should do their job and make us proud by protecting Pakistan’s land not overtaking Government.We hope Kiani will play his role in stopping attacks because if we fail to stop them now then one day they will officially invade into Pakistan. Request to Kiani Please do not play any role in supreme court-Government matters just fulfill your real duty by protecting your motherland.Thats our demand and thats our constitution says….
We Love Army…….. we Love Pakistan………

Assalam-o-Allaikum Warahmatullah. Unfortunately our leaders now-a-days have been with each other like cats and dogs just to be in the government versus Supreme Court and their all attention is on their constitutional matters to find the ways that how corrupt and NRO certified President Zardari can be protected from presenting in Supreme Court and our leaders are showing extreme effrontery by only protesting on these attacks.If they have been unable to control these attacks then allow Pakistan Army to control these cruel and brutal attacks. Now showing only the protests time has gone and the time has come to take strong,stern and strict steps practically against these attacks instead of showing weakness and protesting.This is our leaders’ extreme meanness and shamefulness they are showing in this regard because their own security has been on priority basis than the nation’s security and the most importantly it has been confirmed that our leaders have introduced themselves as the slaves and beggars before the modern world and slaves and beggars are only for the obeying not for the ruling and when advanced nations shall give you aid in begging they also have right to kill your people whenever and wheresoever they will desire because our leaders have sold their and the whole nation’s grace,honor,dignity and self-respect against the Dollars and Euros in the hands of non-muslims and Allama Iqbal said for this occasion the most accurately “Baatil kay iqtadar mein taqwa ki aarzo, Kitna haseen faraib hai jo kha rahay hain hum” and “Apni millat pey qayas aqwam-e-maghrib sey na kar, khas hai tarkeeb mein qaum-e-Hashmi”

This is a slap on the face for Pakistan’s so-called international ‘cooperation.’ Army should stop all NATO supplies and consider carrying out a similiar response air strike.

What is the use of being the only Nuclear Islamic country if we cannot defend ourselves. They are deliberately killing our soldiers and civilians but our Govt. keep on lodging strong protests. Our Army should take some retaliatory measures to make NATO understand that we know how to defend ourselves. Being Muslims, we should not be afraid of anyone except ALLAH.
