2 killed in Pakistan blasts

Explosions on oil tankers carrying fuel for
NATO-led forces in Afghanistan killed two people and wounded four in northwestern Pakistan, a local official told CNN.

The incidents took place near Afghanistan in the areas of Landi Kotal and Torkham in the Khyber Agency, part of Pakistan's tribal region, said Shafi Ullah Wazir, the Khyber political administrator.

Wazir said explosive devices were planted on the tankers, which were bound for NATO's International Security Assistance Forces in Afghanistan.

    Thanks for posting the video, lest we forget. I'm sure some liberties were taken but when I decry to loss of even a single American life for the sake of Afghanistan its good to remember that the Taliban is one of the foulest corruptions to come to life. I pray God will send them to where they belong in a speedy fashion and protect the innocent. Unfortunately, I'm sure they wish the same for us.

    The threat from Islam will recede and die away only when Saudi Arabian/Iranian oil is appropriated by United Nations in the name of humanity. The proceeds from sales of oil be used to fund development all over the world. The Saudis can then be given a stipend just as the Queen of England is.

    Yes, all of these events did occur; however, the scene of the woman being stoned is from the based-on-a-true story movie, The Stoning of Soroya M., and takes place in Iran. Not to say stonings don't take place in Afghanistan. For anyone out there that wants a true and factual account of Pakistan/Afghanistan issues, the war in Afghanistan, and the price we will all pay if we don't resolve the problems in this region of the world, please read "Descent Into Chaos" by Ahmed Rashid, a Pakistani journalist whose even-handed account of this region is well worth reading. His book "Taliban" is also well worth reading for a greater understanding of the how, the why, and the who.

    Afghanistan, Iraq , Somalia etc.. are the playgrounds for War mongers like British, Russia and America.
    Read the history and figure out who plan all this stuff. 9-11 was planned by Bush & Cheney to control Iraqi Oil and remove their Bitc..h Saddam whom American provided nerve gas to use against Iran in 1970. It is all game and conspiracy and that is the only way to invade a country and use & sell ammunition.
    This is my long time unbiased analysis.

  9. Will The Witness

    If anyone out there listening still doesn't believe in the kingdom of heaven: that comes through faith in Christ Jesus and by the power of God; than hear this. Everyone in the world who practices falsehood will now be judged: There will never again be a single bomb or weapon of war, of any kind, that will work ever again- As God is My Witness-We Will All See

    There will no longer be a way for wicked men to strike fear into the hearts of people across the globe; with the use of the weapons of war, and these things that men put their trust in for defense, instead of putting their hope, faith, love, and trust in the All Mighty and Powerful God. And, As God is my Witness–He will do it to show the Kings and Leaders of the world that he can uproot their worldly power without even having to try...

    Praise the Lord! -We will all see

    And, if anyone in any world government or organization ever tries blocking me from doing God's work in sharing my testimony of the Truth in Christ Jesus–than all of your communications satellites will fail-As God is my Witness-His power is beyond understanding, so don't even try it

    Taliban, Saudi's and Wahabi's are worst enemies of Islam and worse enimies of World. They just paint Islam on their faces but inner-side they are friend of Jews.

      What if they Love a Jews or anyone who is a Human! When Your own Prophet Muhammed give his whole hearted respect to the people of other cast and creed, why cant you give the same.
      Just Remember In Quran, the disrespect shown to a dead person by calling an unbeliever 'kafir' was also against the Prophet's own beliefs. Once he saw the cortege of a Jew pass by. Immediately, he stood in honour of the dead person. When a companion reminded him that it was a Jew's cortege, the Prophet shot back: "Was he not a human being?"

      My Brother! Plz for God sake! live living in radical thinking!

    Ha ha it looks like everyone sees through the lies of 360 on this thread!

    Judge 360 by its fruits of arrogance, hate and ignorance. The proof is in its false preacher who spews filth on this board.

    Who could let their weak mind fall to such nonsense called 360?! Its laughable.
