That SURE IS a LOT of PEOPLE for a party that is not very popular (at least, according to my Zionist MSM)!
Maybe we SHOULD start TALKING with them instead of KILLING THEM!
After all, they NEVER DID ANYTHING TO US!!!!
9/11 an INSIDE JOB and the whole world knows it!!!!
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan --Fighter jets bombed Taliban hide-outs in Pakistan's troubled northwest while troops pushed into militant territory on the ground, killing at least 40 insurgents in a 24-hour siege, the army said Saturday.
Separately, five others died when an explosion ripped through a house near the Afghan border, local officials said. Claims that it was a missile strike could not immediately be confirmed.
Pakistan's economy is sinking, power outages are common, there are food shortages, and many drivers cannot afford to fill up their tanks. More than 200,000 others have been forced to flee their homes, most of them women and children, and are now living in desperate conditions in sweltering, mosquito-infested relief camps.
Human rights groups expressed concern Saturday about the rising violence. Locals "insist there is no targeted operation against militants, rather it is a haphazard armed invasion on the people of Swat," Asma Jahangir, chairwoman of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, wrote in a letter to the prime minister.
In other violence Saturday, a blast ripped through a home in Wana, a main town in the South Wazirtistan tribal region, killing at least five militants, said Afzal Khan, a local official, who had no further details.
