    plain conspiracy, what more can come to the mind. Now US is making reasons happen to invade pakistan. What more can be a reason than the killing of US Citizens in pakistan. And with the remote control bomb, they cannot even blame it on their taliban friends.
    May Allah pin this thing to an end ASAP.

    most possible a reaction of recent killing by NATO forces who got into Pakistani area and hit the missile which resulting killing of women and kids.

    @Soomro sahab in which world do you live? Our mighty president already had allowed(ahem who’s he to stop his master Americans) Americans to kill whenever they want within Pakistani region.

    As I said earlier on same blog that tussle between right and left wing fascists have left us no where but in depression.

    As any conspiracy-believer with some self-respect, I have no other way but to sallow hook, link and sinker the pearls so generously lavished by sarfrazsoomro. Well, the potency of his strong argument has dissipated any doubts that a cynic might harbour. Of course, it as a conspiracy cooked nowhere else but in the confines of the Oval Office that resulted in the death of one and injuries to several others, including officials from the American Embassy itself, last night in the heart of Islamabad. Don’t we know that Bloody Yanks can go to any length, including sacrificing their own highly dispensable nationals, to destabilize a highly stable and strong Pakistan, the citadel of Islam? A doubter, taking a superficial view, might readily dismiss the omnipotent and omnipresent “American hand” by saying that the US is not in a position to withstand even the idea of contemplating another “invasion” as the country’s forces and resources are already heavily stretched in Iraq. However, any person with clarity of thoughts and an iota of wisdom would have no choice but to agree with the good judgment of sarfrazsoomro, which is also shared by several vernacular newspapers.

    Now, that the panic has been set by the Yanks in the city of peace, aka Islamabad, just brace yourself for the American onslaught with all it might, the marines and all. Keep a watch out on the sky with B-52 bombers dropping their payload of daisy-cutters from unfathomable heights, followed by paratroopers being dropped around Kahuta, the production centre of the Pakistan’s strategic assets or the Islamic bomb.

    To think of it, I now clearly see the American hand in the spreading of extremism and religious terrorism in Pakistan as the Washington was the obvious conduit for promoting the Takfiri ideology here for obvious reasons. Although on surface the route of the religious terrorism might originate from the Medina Islamic University, the hotbed of Wahhabism, backed by generous Saudi funding for ideologically compliant madrassas doting the surface of our country, don’t we know that Saudis are the lapdogs of Americans. Saudis will do anything at the beck of American even if involves destabilizing a brotherly Islamic, highly tolerant and inclusive nation of Pakistan. So don’t blame the recent waive of terrorism on the country on the madrassa-bred Taliban, but on the mother of all evils, the Americans, as our enlightened friend sarfrazsoomro has so kindly suggested.
