    Pakistan Will Not Attack Haqqani Network.....

    http://news.yahoo.com/pakistan-not-a...044823607.html

    ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan's military will not take action against the Haqqani militant group that Washington blames for an attack against its embassy in Kabul, despite mounting American pressure to do so, a Pakistani newspaper reported on Monday.

    "We have already conveyed to the U.S. that Pakistan cannot go beyond what it has already done," the official told the newspaper on condition of anonymity.

    Pakistan denies it supports the Haqqanis and says its army is too stretched battling its own Taliban insurgency to go after the network, which has an estimated 10,000-15,000 fighters.

    Sirajuddin Haqqani, who heads the Haqqani network, says the group no longer needs sanctuaries in Pakistan, and it feels safe operating in Afghanistan.....snip~

    Seems Pakistan is getting bolder and bolder by the day. Plus Mullens is suppose to be stepping down too. Now they have told the Obama Admin they will not go after these guys anymore.

    But they warn us about losing them as an ally. :

    I'm done with these jokers. They're useless. They don't even have oil. Let them topple. They militant Islam branch will probably nuke themselves considering their incompetency, or let them go after India and get crushed. Not our problem.

    I agree with you. I would tell them to STFU or I would just put a big hole in the ground with a sign saying this is where Pakistan use to be. They act like we can't get around using them to supply the troops. They need to try smelling what American Coffee smells like. Logistics would be difficult. Not impossible and yes it would cost us more. But we wouldn't need the Pakis at all.

    Lindsey Graham was talking some major shit against Pakistan. As In hey we will jack that azz. >

    Pakistan's Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani talks with China's Public Security Minister

    ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan warned the United States on Tuesday to stop accusing it of playing a double game with Islamist militants and heaped praise on "all-weather friend" China.

    Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, speaking exclusively to Reuters, said any unilateral military action by the United States to hunt down militants of the Haqqani network inside Pakistan would be a violation of his country's sovereignty.

    Since Mullen's comments, Pakistan has launched a diplomatic counter-attack and attempted to drum up support from its strongest ally in the region, China. Pakistani officials have been heaping praise on China since its public security minister arrived in Islamabad on Monday for high-level talks.

    Gilani said Washington did not help itself when it struck a deal on civilian nuclear cooperation with India, not Pakistan.

    Much of the Pakistani public believes that since the end of the Cold War, the United States has tilted toward India, which has fought three wars with Pakistan since the violent partition of the subcontinent in 1947.

    In a demonstration of that distrust, hundreds turned out on Tuesday for anti-American rallies in Pakistani cities.....snip~

    Now the Pakis run to China.....they call them their All Weather Friend. All within a week. This is a slap in our face. Time to tell the Pakis, we are done. No more Aid. Ask your All Weather Friend for the money. >

    Yes absolutely, that is the last straw. Completely ridiculous. China is your friend for now because you aren't helping to attack them. Try that with China and see how it turns out for you. Time to leave them...China will look after the radicals and if not India will. We don't need to spend any more time with those backstabbers.

    Question

    Taliban control the Haqqani's...

    Haqqanis mulling peace talks with US under Taliban
    Wed, Nov 14, 2012 - The Haqqani network, seen as the most lethal insurgent faction in Afghanistan, would take part in peace talks with the US, but only under the direction of their Afghan Taliban leaders, a top faction commander said yesterday.
    The rare flexibility exhibited by an Afghan militant commander was accompanied by a warning that the Haqqanis would keep up pressure on Western forces with high-profile attacks and would pursue their goal of establishing an Islamic state. The Haqqanis, who operate out of the unruly border area between Pakistan and Afghanistan, say they are part of the Afghan Taliban and must act in unison in any peace process. The commander, who declined to be identified, accused the US of being insincere in peace efforts and trying to divide the two organizations. “However, if the central shura, headed by Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar, decided to hold talks with the United States, we would welcome it,” he said by telephone from an undisclosed, referring to the militants’ leadership council.

    The Taliban said in March they were suspending nascent peace talks with the US. A senior Afghan official closely involved with reconciliation efforts said last week the government had failed to secure direct talks with the Taliban and no significant progress was expected before 2014. The US designated the Haqqani network a terrorist organization in September, a move its commanders said proved Washington was not sincere about peace efforts in Afghanistan. Last week, the UN Security Council imposed sanctions on the Haqqanis. Isolating the group, who were blamed for the 18-hour attack on embassies and parliament in Kabul in April, could complicate efforts to secure peace at a time when Afghans fear another civil war could erupt after Western forces withdraw.

    The Haqqani network may prove to be US President Barack Obama’s biggest security challenge as he tries to stabilize Afghanistan before most NATO combat troops withdraw from Afghanistan in 2014. The group’s experience in guerrilla fighting dating back to the anti-Soviet war in the 1980s and its substantial financial network, could make it the ultimate spoiler of peace efforts. A report in July by the Center for Combating Terrorism said the Haqqanis ran a sophisticated financial network, raising money through kidnapping, extortion and drug trafficking, but also have a legitimate business portfolio that includes import/export, transport, real estate and construction interests in Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Gulf.

    The commander said the Haqqani network was pleased about Obama’s re-election, predicting he would be demoralized by battlefield losses and pull out US forces earlier than expected. “From what we see on the ground, Obama would not wait for 2014 to call back his forces,” the commander said. “They suffered heavy human and financial losses and are not in a position to suffer more,” he said, adding that he and his men were looking ahead to victory. “We will install a purely a Islamic government, which would be acceptable to all the people,” the commander said.
