    ISI trains Taliban and give them sanctuaries in Pakistan territory, so let Taliban kill them. I hope Taliban kill 50000 Pakistanis and Panjabis every week.

    How dare they attack a police compound? Don't they know that the police are trying to enforce the will of Washington over there? How do they expect Hilary Clinton to keep on paying them off? We need Pakistan and how!!!
