Suicide attacks in Pakistan kill 80; Taliban claim bin Laden revenge

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility Friday for suicide attacks on a military training facility in the nation's northwest, saying they were in retaliation for the killing of terror leader Osama bin Laden.

The twin suicide bombings killed at least 80 people, nearly all of them military recruits who had just completed their training, said Bashir Ahmad Bilour, a senior provincial minister. About 140 others were injured.

"Pakistani and the U.S. forces should be ready for more attacks," said Ihsan Ullah Ihsan, a spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban, who accused the Pakistani military of telling the United States where bin Laden was.

    Taliban AlQaeda kill their enemies. Sometimes civilians are in the crossfire, but even the US-Nato troops routinely kill innocent civilians not just in Afghanistan but even in Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Serbia.

    Dear all in long term the might is with those who are do right things for the humanity and people, I think all healthy and normal mind accept this. so mighty world knows the essence of the human being, so there is no supremacy in terms of religion, race, folk, color etc, according to the god those people are good, who are not bothering others by any ways, who are helping others, who are respect others etc, in no where orders to bother other, now you can imagine what the Taliban Alqaeda do in there quagmire and slums fake territory. every they except destroying and killing they do not do anything else, and its clear for all,

    There is no complexity among the Alqaeda and Taliban both of the are killer of the people and we have delineated them by the action they have done against humanity, not just in Afghanistan but also in all the world, Taliban Alqaeda do abomination actions against humanity and it up to us to obsolete them from world with their supporters like ISI, etc.

    These extremists Taliban Alqaeda commit absurd activities like killing and destruction of the cities and villages as they did in 1996-2001 in north and central Afghanistan, killed many people and burned many lands and orchards fields.

    Now we have to be convince that they (Taliban Alqaeda )are not the people and parties to talk with them and to make peace with them and it’s a true idea to fight them and defeat them by forces everywhere that they have there nets and their supporters too, they are traitors not just for Afghan people but also they are traitors for all humanity,

    We have to launch stride-integrated steps against Taliban Aqaeda their backs ISI, as Obama did one example of that which killed Usama Bin Ladin in his safe net in Pakistan ( Abbottabad) where is the terrorist safe nets.

    We express our decent praise to those brave soldiers who killed Usama and we are waiting to see to be killed other extremists who defaming the name of Islam like Aqani, Hikmatyar, Zarqawi , Zawaheri, Mullah Omer etc well done international forces for your services and killing wild animals,

    People who live the world they are human, as they divided by religions and different parties its like tree and its branches, but sorry that I am saying this , we can say there is some good people and some bad people are around us,

    the most bad people are those people, that do not go with their promises and their commitments, the most bad people are those, who playing double game with you, the most bad people are those who not believe on what say, the most bad people are those who kill human, and now you all judge, for a while without being under your impressions and ideas, impartial think, then you can say who is bad and who is good, who is playing game and who is honest ,

    in my opinion no one is bad in world, except those who kill people under the name of religion, which now all of us know that Pakistan is the place where except terrorist nothing is positive there, all maddrassas are full of terrorist which exist in Pakistan,

    the question is this for how long USA and international forces undergo Pakistan and its barbarism in the region, now Pakistan envisages to its bad activities that it has regarding others, this time its up to all the world not just USA because all the world sacrifice their sons here in Afghanistan to protect people from Taliban Alqaeda’s barbarism and brutality, so its up to all to take strong decision to vanquish Pakistan, that it and its foolish politician know what would be the compensation for the those who are not honest in what they say and what they do, fake Pakistan,

      Nobody is killing people in the name of the religion. Afghans are killing the intruders even if they are muslims and I support this killing. US-Nato soldiers are criminal as they are routinely killing men women and children in Afghanistan.

    Pakistan is paying high price for friendship with USA. Last sixty years history is full of such incidents wherein Pakistan is always sacrificed for USA global designs. Now this need to be changed otherwise Pakistan may loose existence if continued with this insulting friendship. Today prevailing instability is blessings of US dollars which few of their agents used to receive for personal benefits and in return have mortgaged national sovereignty. These agents are in hot water now and soon they will be made accountable for what they had been doing to this innocent nation.

    USA should cut all AID and kick all terrorists from Afghanistan (seems no terrorist left in Afghanistan anymore, all are living in Pakistan for the past 7 years now ) then Pakistan will not have any $ and that's the end of Terrorists.

    Terrorists are only running for $, if no $ from USA and no $ from Afghan Drug then they are dead😀

    CUT/STOP THE F00KING AID TO STUPID TERRORIST COUNTRY PAKISTAN RIGHT NOW IF YOU WANT TO PUT AN END TO THE PAKISTANI TERRORISTS!!!

    AFGHANISTAN NEVER BEEN A TERRORIST STATE, PAKISTAN WAS/IS A TERRORIST STATE FROM THE BEGINNING !!!

    USA/NATO SHOULD ATTACK PAKISTAN AND INVADE/CONTROL PAKISTAN. PAKISTANI GOVERNMENT WILL NEVER STOP EXPORTING TERRORIST, THEY SHOULD BE NUKED !!! AND THAT'S THE ONLY WAY TO STOP TERRORISTS DISTURBING OTHER COUNTRIES.

    Good Show. Go kill innocents in the Name of OBL. Good job. Maybe we should blame Israel....we haven't heard that one in a while. The US killed OBL, not Pakistan. But since the US is too hard a target it is easier to bomb someone and make an excuse later. The Pak Mil more than likely had a hand in protecting the idiot, not giving him up....you have it all wrong Tliban in Pakistan folks....try reading the news. Oops, too hard for you. Sorry.

    I thought the Taliban were fighting in Afghanistan and they were disassociated from AQ? Or, is this a new Taliban group fighting for what, other than the pleasure of fighting?
