Pakistan Calls For Ramadan Respite While U.S. Missiles House

Sovereignty? What sovereignty?

"Pakistan halts attacks for Ramadan; Blast reportedly kills 4 militants; US drone cited" by Zarar Khan, Associated Press | September 1, 2008

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistan said yesterday it was suspending a military operation against insurgents in a tribal region for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan but warned any provocations in the area would bring immediate retaliation.

So expect some false-flag attacks by western intelligence agencies, folks.

A Taliban spokesman welcomed the decision to halt the strikes in the Bajur tribal region. The operation in Bajur began in early August. Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik said yesterday the operation has killed more than 560 people the government says were Islamist insurgents and has displaced more than 300,000 people.

In another part of the northwest, a blast blamed on a missile reportedly killed four suspected foreign militants. Residents said they saw a drone in the air shortly before the explosion, raising suspicion the United States was behind the strike.

In the North Waziristan tribal region, witnesses and a local intelligence official said a blast yesterday destroyed a house and a missile strike was suspected. At least four people were reported killed and two injured in the blast in Tapi village, said the intelligence official on condition of anonymity. He said all six were believed to be foreigners.

Local militants immediately surrounded the site, said area residents Mohammad Ayaz and Noor Rehman. Both said they saw a drone in the air before the explosion at about 3 p.m.

Past missile strikes are believed to have been conducted by the CIA using Predator drones.

But the American MSM can't be bothered investigating that!!!!
