US-led Incursion Into Pakistan Twarted

 

Late Sunday night, a US-led coalition attempting to enter Pakistan had warning shots fired upon their helicopters after which after which they retreated. The incident occurred on the Afghanistan side of the border and claimed no casualties.

A security official has said the shot were fired from Pakistani troops, however this contradicts a source in the Pakistan army which has confirmed the event, but denied any involvement by the Pakistani army.

This comes as US drones have been repeatedly firing missiles into Pakistan killing dozens.

Pakistan on Sunday announced that they would defend themselves against violations of its airspace by US troops stationed in Afghanistan.

  What did they expect?  
 
I'm surprised we retreated and didn't use this as an opportunity to declare war on Pakistan. Or maybe we felt the robots needed to do more damage first.

  Since you mentioned the title mistake..  
 
You have a duplicate 'after which' in the first paragraph.
Your first and second sentences of the second paragraph shouldn't have a period between them. But then the paragraph would need to be re-worked...

Sorry if this upsets..

according to them they di... meaning it was likely a militant group defending their border rather than rely on the pakistanmilitary that has failed them in the past.

and then? USA will not stop unless it is fired upon.

I know what you are implying, but a bully is a bully, is a bully. USA if not fired upon will continue killing Pakistanis with a complete disregard to human lives they destroy.

  I just had a weird thought  
 
Listen to Orgasmatron lyrics especially the second part and it relates a lot to the current administration in the US.

I am the one, orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic, sacred whore.

I twist the truth, I rule the world, my crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies, you grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you, your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant and revel in you pain
And all my promises are lies, all my love is hate
I am the politician, and I decide your fate

I march before a martyred world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days, of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood, I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny, I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
For I am mars, the God of war, and I will cut you down.

  All are in denial  
 
But is a positive result for Pakistan.
