ISLAMABAD – The U.S. commander running the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, held talks on Monday with Pakistani leaders who told him to stop U.S. strikes on militants in Pakistani territory.
Pakistani officials call known jihadists and terrorists “patriots”
Such as al-Qaeda leader, Baitullah Mehsud, who apparently sanctioned theÂ disfigurement of unveiled women with acid, and is accused of masterminding theÂ assassination of Bhutto. “[T]he aftermath of the Mumbai carnage has suddenly turned terrorists into patriots.”
US missile strike kills 3 in Pakistan
MIRAN SHAH, Pakistan â€“ Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike has killed three people in a militant stronghold near the Afghan border.
Whole lotta roasted “martyrs!”

Petraeus arrived in Pakistan on Sunday, at the beginning of his first foreign tour since taking charge of U.S. Central Command, highlighting U.S. concern about a country seen as crucial to stability in Afghanistan and to defeating al Qaeda.
U.S. analysts say Pakistan is facing a major threat from Islamist militants at a time when the nuclear-armed nation and its new civilian government are engulfed in extraordinarily difficult economic problems.
Petraeus has been hailed as an outstanding military leader for helping pull Iraq back from the brink of civil war with a strategy that brought a “surge” of 30,000 extra U.S. troops.
Both U.S. presidential candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, have said they would put more focus on defeating the Taliban in Afghanistan and eradicating al Qaeda from Pakistan’s borderlands.
Both candidates have said they would boost U.S. troop strength in Afghanistan from the 33,000 there now.
Petraeus was being accompanied in Pakistan by Assistant U.S. Secretary of State Richard Boucher.
Their visit comes as relations between the United States and Pakistan have been strained by a series of cross-border U.S. strikes, most by missile-firing pilotless drone aircraft, on militant targets in Pakistan.
President Asif Ali Zardari told Petraeus the attacks should stop, Pakistan’s state news agency reported.
“Continuing drone attacks on our territory, which result in loss of precious lives and property, are counter-productive and difficult to explain by a democratically elected government,” Zardari was quoted as saying.
“It is creating a credibility gap,” he said.
The most pressing problems for Petraeus include rising violence in Afghanistan and Taliban and al Qaeda sanctuaries across the border in Pakistan’s ethnic Pashtun tribal lands.
The United States and NATO are losing ground against an escalating Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan, despite the presence of 64,000 Western troops, while al Qaeda has regained strength in Pakistan’s tribal region.
Apparently, frustration over deteriorating Afghan security has led to more aggressive U.S. action against the sanctuaries in Pakistan with about 15 missile strikes and one ground assault since the beginning of last month.
Pakistan says the strikes are a violation of its sovereignty and undermine efforts to isolate the militants and rally public opinion behind the unpopular campaign against militancy, which many people see as America’s war.
The United States has shrugged off Pakistan’s complaints saying the attacks are needed to protect U.S. troops in Afghanistan and kill militants who threaten them.
About 20 people, including militants, were killed in the latest U.S. missile strikes on two violence-plagued border regions, North and South Waziristan, on Friday.
Despite the anger over the cross-border strikes, analysts say Zardari is a staunch U.S. ally who wants good ties.
Earlier, Defence Minister Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar said Petraeus had been appreciative of Pakistan’s efforts in battling militants along the Afghan border.
“They believe in our government because previously there was more rhetoric than action but now there is more action than rhetoric,” Mukhtar told Reuters.
“They appreciate that we take it as war against Pakistan. It’s our war … we are fighting for our survival.”

Pakistan is not to be trusted.

We need to totaly side with India.
MOHAMMEDS WORDS CREATED, MUMBAI’S MASSACRE, THE BALI DANCE HALL BUTCHERY, THE WORLD TOWER DESTRUCTION AND SLAUGHTER, AND OVER 12,362 DEADLY ISLAMIC CRIMINAL ATTACKS SINCE 9/11..
The following item shows that Islamic Terrorists are following Mohammeds example and decrees. Tolerance comprise only 3% of Mohammeds statements. They were in his early period in Mecca. After his escape to Medina, 97% of the statements relating to unbelievers, were hate and violence decreed against all infidels. The first 3% are abrogated by later decrees. Anyone who is learned in the Muslim faith who states that Islam is a religion of Peace, is a 5th columnist doing his duty for Islam, to undermine and lull our Democracies.
Muslims consider Mohammed the most honourable of all men. This allows them every act that he did or supported.

Muhammed: The Con Man and False Prophet
As we are against terrorism in the world for the ultimate survival of our society, Iâ€™m offering viewpoints to win the battle against Islamâ€™s goal of world domination, which is stated in their writings.
Muhammed and his sayings, found in the Koran, Hadiths, Sunnahs and Surahs, are the root of Muslim terrorism.
With truth and reality, we must discredit the founder of Islam, his sayings and the belief system that spawns this terrorism.
Let the world know that Muhammed, while in Medina, organized raids on camel trains hauling trade goods, and received twenty percent (20%) of the ill gotten loot. The spiritual mechanics of functioning as a Prophet does not mix with being a thief and killing for wealth.
Let the world know that Muhammed betrothed a six year old (6) child , in her ninth year (9) consummated their marriage sexually. He was in his fifties (50â€™s) at the time. The inner development of a Prophet does not function with paedophilia. Muhammed was a Paedophile. He claimed that Aisha was his only wife that caused him to experience revelations while under the blanket with her. Muhammeds counsel to others and actions, legitimized paedophilia through Islams ideology. What was the source of Muhammeds revelations as a Paedophile? All this is stated in th Hadiths and Surahs.
On returning to Medina after taking Mecca, he attacked one of the Jewish tribes, the Qurraysa. After 28 days of siege, the Jews capitulated. Muhammed immediately ignored the terms agreed upon as part of their surrender. He ordered and watched as all males from puberty on were beheaded in a trench. Their families were made to watch this slaughter of the male children and men. Some of the women became hysterical while watching the beheading of their husbands and sons and were also beheaded. During the slaughter, Muhammed spotted a beautiful Jewish girl and selected her for his sex slave. Her name was Rayhannah. She had to watch while her mother and sister were raped. Her sister was traded as a slave for arms which is stated in both the Hadiths and the Surahs. There were three tribal groups of Jewish origin and belief in Medina at that time. Those that werenâ€™t killed or sold into slavery were forced out into the desert to die.
These atrocities are the actions of a demonic fiend not a Prophet.
Muhammed also encouraged and rewarded many assassinations in his lifetime. Murder is not an activity of a Prophet.
The fantasy paradise that Muhammed developed to entice the itinerant, uneducated Arabs to Islam is a personal bordello. This paradise in the hereafter shows a sexual fixation and addiction in the spirit of Muhammed. This is not the development of a spiritual Prophet. This demonic personality is no doubt the most successful con man ever. Muhammed has been more successful than Hitler and the Nazi movement in longevity, size of his organization and hatred of the Jews.
Compare Muhammed to all former Prophets and founders of great religious movements, East and West, and it easily shows us how debased he was. His organization was developed by tacking spiritual words to robbery, killing, conversions by the sword and terrorism with Fatwas which are all fiendish acts. This activity by his followers is presently seen on television clips with kidnapped, innocent people being beheaded in praise of Allah.
Last but not least, Allah was one of over two hundred and fifty (250) idols in the Kaâ€™aba. After taking Mecca, Muhammed destroyed all other tribal idols except for the Quraysh tribeâ€™s idol and pronounced Allah the one and only God.
I believe that, in warfare against terrorism, we must attack the heart and not just the tentacles of Islam with truth. We must not let this perversion of religion spawn numberless adherents to Muhammedâ€™s words to expand their terrorism. We must confront terrorism head on.
When combating Evil remember: Appeasement is like feeding a steak to a tiger in the hope that it will eventually become a vegetarian.

Unfortunately, Muslims in debate or negotiations are forced to LIE to preserve Islamâ€™s integrity. This noble Islamic activity is called â€œTAKIYAâ€.
