    NATO air attack on Pakistan check post kills 20

    PESHAWAR: NATO helicopters from Afghanistan carried out an "unprovoked" attack on a Pakistani border post, killing at least 20 troops and injuring four others Saturday, the military said.

    According to a military spokesman, NATO helicopters carried out unprovoked and indiscriminate firing on a Pakistani checkpost in Mohmand agency last night.

    Security officials in the Mohmand tribal region near the Afghan border and a military official in Peshawar said 20 troops including two officers were killed in the pre-dawn incident.

    They said the attack took place on the Salala checkpost in the Baizai district of the rugged tribal terrain.

    Nato confirmed it was aware of "an incident" near the border and said it was investigating.

    All the entry and exit points of Mohmand Agency were sealed by the security forces after the incident.

    Whether its troops killed by NATO's "accidental" firing or innocent civilians killed by drones and conveniently labeled "collateral damage", the end result is pretty similar. A protest would be lodged leading to an apology from the other party.

    Its a pity, that our armed forces instead of defending our poor people have become spectators to this drama. Where a mere apology is worth a dozen lives.

    Officials: NATO chopppers kill 25 Pakistani troops

    Pakistan military spokesman says helicopters engaged in 'unprovoked and indiscriminate firing'

    NATO helicopters from Afghanistan intruded into northwest Pakistan and attacked a military check post near the border on Saturday, killing up to 25 troops and wounding 14, Pakistani military officials told Reuters.

    A senior Pakistani military officer said efforts were under way to bring the bodies to the headquarters of Mohmand tribal region from their post located on hilltops near the Afghan border.

    "The latest attack by NATO forces on our post would have serious repercussions as they without any reason attacked on our post and killed soldiers asleep," he said, requesting anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.

    The Associated Press reported that Pakistan state TV had reported the same death toll, amid earlier conflicting reports.

    A Pakistani military spokesman confirmed the pre-dawn attack in the tribal region of Mohmand and said casualties had been reported, but gave no details.

    "NATO helicopters carried out an unprovoked and indiscriminate firing on a Pakistani check post in Mohmand agency, casualties have been reported and details are awaited," the spokesman told Reuters.

    NATO supplies suspended
    Journalist Ahmad Mukhtar said in a message on Twitter that Pakistan was suspending NATO's truck supplies that travel through Pakistan to Afghanistan.

    Reuters, citing Pakistani officials, later reported that trucks and fuel tankers were stopped at Jamrud town in the Khyber tribal region near the city of Peshawar, hours after the raid.

    "We have halted the supplies and some 40 tankers and trucks have been returned from the check post in Jamrud," Mutahir Zeb, a senior government official, told Reuters.

    Another official said the supplies had been stopped for security reasons.

    The Salala check post, about 1.5 miles from the Afghan border, was recently set up by the Pakistan army to stop Taliban militants holed up in Afghanistan from crossing the border and staging attacks, officials told The Associated Press.

    The attack took place around 2 a.m. local time in the Baizai area of Mohmand, where Pakistani troops are engaged in fighting Taliban militants.

    Various unnamed officials had previous put the death toll at between seven and 13.

    A spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force in Kabul said the coalition there was aware of "an incident."

    In a message on Twitter, ISAF said it was "Currently gathering info in [sic] that incident."

    The attack comes as relations between the United States and Pakistan, its ally in the war on terror, are already strained following the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden by U.S. special forces in a secret raid on the Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad in May.

    U.S. helicopters accidentally killed two Pakistani soldiers near the border last year, prompting Pakistan to temporarily close the border to supplies shipped through the country to NATO troops in Afghanistan.

    Two wrongs don't make a right. If politicians don't have the courage to stand up, then the armed are equally to blame for not taking a stand. If Haqqani's memo was reason enough for the military leadership to flex their muscles, shouldn't everyday civilian casualties stir feelings of nationalism amongst the armed forces ?

    it is about time we discussed the effectiveness of an expensive army for over 60 years that has just led to one defeat and one disaster after another in the battlefield....their achievements versus the monies spent on them to bilud their conglomerates that has bakeries banks fertilizers and what not...plus their meddling with democracy, civilian institutions and human rights of ppl has led to dismemberment of Pakistan and civil unrest in baluchistan now...and we r worse of today then we were 60 years ago thanks to our military and establishment...yet the dont learn...their bogus notions of strtegic depth..and slowly bleeding India to death

    It is high time for the sake of democracy and the country that politicians unite against the unlawful practices of military establishment

    else the establishment will keep playing dirty games punishing civilians...meeting self professed ISI haters secretly...

    they are palying with our destiny and if we dont act now .. 10 years down...we will still be here with our good for nothing ..small talk...

    i think national govt. is the need of the hour...but our military will be too afraid to include NS in the decision making process...plz act and plz act fast...and politicians and civilians ...plz unite...

    نیٹو کے ہاتھوں پاکستانی فوجیوں کی قربانی ایک خاص مقصد کیلئے دی گئی ہے

    سیاست کے گندے کھیل مین معصوم فوجیوں کو مروایا گیا ہے ، اس سارے کھیل کا مقصد سیاسی قوتوں کو مزید کمزور کرنا ہے تا کہہ ہیت مقتدرہ اپنے پسند کا نیا حکومتی بندوبست لا سکے

    فوج ان شہید فوجیوں کا ملبہ سیاسی حکومت پر ڈالے گی اور ٹی وی کے ٹاک شو کے زر خرید اینکر پرسن اس معاملے کو خوب اچھالیں گیں اور زرداری حکومت کو ذلیل کرنے کی آڑ مین اصلی سیاسی قوتوں کو بھی نیچا دکھائیں گیں

    یہ اینکر پرسن اگر کسی کی اس سارے معاملے مین تعریف کریں گیں تو وہ ہو گا عمران خان ، نیٹو کے ہاتھوں ان فوجیوں کی شہادت کے معاملے کو خوب اچھالا جائے گا اور عمران خان کی پرانی تقریروں کو نکال کر بار بار چلایا جائے گا اور ثابت کیا جائے گا کہہ عمران ہی امریکی پالیسی کے پاکستان مین مزاحمت کر سکتا ہے

    First and foremost my heartfelt condolences and prayers for the families of all the Pakistani soldiers that died or were injured in this senseless attack. I am certain every Pakistani, irrespective of party politics is thinking about our brave sons who have offered the ultimate sacrifice trying to protect our borders.

    I find it impossible to buy the 'accident' or 'tragic mistake' excuse for this murder. A country that has the technology to kill people in another country thousands of kilometres away, will find it impossible to justify the murder of Pakistani soldiers from such close quarters. A proper investigation, an full apology to the families and appropriate compensation is vital for any healing process to begin. Sadly, no amount of compensation will ever bring the loved ones back to their families.

    This war is not Pakistan's war and the sooner we leave it the better it is. Leaving the war does not mean we become enemies with America but simply that we are exercising of our sovereign right as a nation. Pakistan has to take responsibility for all that happens within its borders and our land must not be used to attack or undermine any other country. The stooges that rule Pakistan at the moment (see: memogate)lack the honesty, integrity and the balls to say to the Americans that Pakistan is no longer willing to do its dirty work. We can live with America and the 'west' in relationship of mutual respect and dignity.

    Let us wait and see how much compensation will ever be paid by NATO war criminals for the Shaheeds.

    Here is the compensation for each of the victims for other attacks.

    Lockerbie Bombing victims= 10,000,000.00 dollar
    9/11 bombing victims= 1,185,000.00 dollar

    Afghanistan: civilian killed in botched NATO bombings about 500 dollars each

    Pakistan botched NATO boming victim? Please make a guess.

    We should not be worried about the worldly compensation that much because the reward for Shaheed cannot be measured in this world. But just see how much they pay.

    No one should be surprised on such attacks and loss of lives of Pakistani soldiers; we are paying price of past mistakes of Gen Zia Establishment when we promoted jihadi agenda to defeat world's second super power at the behest of USA.

    I can well remember our minimal protest (Govt and general public) almost 30 years ago against air strikes of Soviet planes into our tribal areas which often caused deaths of local civilians.

    When I protested against soviet strikes due to wrong foreign/security policies, I was silenced by my university professors, relatives and friends and they all called loss of innocent Pakistani lives as 'collateral damage' and some time also called me unpatriotic because I was a strong opponent of Afghan fasad and unfettered access of CIA in our country.

    We MUST admit we had already sold our country to CIA and Americans back in the 1980s. So now there is no point crying and shedding tears.

    It is indeed a very tragic incident. But what about hundreds of innocent civilians who have been killed in NATO and CIA attacks?

    Are all Pakistanis not equal?

    Is life of a civilian less valuable than a soldier?

    It is good that the military is taking reprisal measures. But shouldn't we be responding this way the first time NATO/CIA killed a Pakistani, civilian or soldier?

    The peanuts of billions have probably made our lives worthless in the eyes of the Americans. The killer Ramond Davis went back unpunished. The recent tragic event will also be forgotten very shortly.

    The nation spends 70% of the budget on defence, but there seems to be no investment on technology from the 70% budget. The Americans are treating us like toys. The events of Abbotabd and the check-post are the indicators of our defencelessness.

    As usual many so called analyst and thinkers are now on ground claiming what ever they say is in good interest of Pakistan and they are our well wishers

    Although the only purpose of these declared or undeclared (Pakistani?) Americans is to create a smoke screen and create false arguments to confuse Pakistan about what we are doing

    In presence of modern technologies even a taxi driver cannot lost its way, How one can be innocent enough to say it is only an accident and asking us what could be the purpose of NATO attacks!? i wonder who should answer this question

    And look at our elites, they asked America to close operations from Shamsi Base, why only Shamsi Base, what about Jacobabad, Passni, Kharan and other basses?
    If boycott was not a good idea for Pakistan, what else is?
    How we can effort for peace when we are not sure about our own defense? And on the other hand, if we cannot defend our military post, what else we can defend?

    If the soldiers under attack need permission before response, means our General has no trust or confidence even on his own soldiers, with this frame of mind how he can trust his political bosses?

    Check what other media is saying. Could a bad performance by our Journails be the reasons some (or all) foreign channles were banned after the attack? They do not want their public to know how "good" they are.

    "A Pakistani military statement on Friday said the response could have been more "effective" if the airforce had been called in, but this was not possible because of a "breakdown of communication" and confusion at "various levels" within the organization."

    azizi,
    Your point is also valid but i think that approval against NATO strikes is circulated as a document towards china and than recieving back from china that answer is further made smart in light of own limitations and than response is circulated among Army Ranks and govt ranks.
    So i think with such a changing and challenging environment its not easy to evaluate and decide HARD RESPONSE with much EASE.

    What a tragic event! Our soldiers equipped with just ineffective weapons were helplessly killed. The lollipops of ISPR about the retaliatory actions from the next time can't satisfy the nation. The army needs to be equipped adequately with technological weapons. The gallantry of our soldiers without effective technological weapons is useless.

    The nation is spending more than 70% budget on the defence sector. The money must be spent for the development of technological weapons.
