4 killed in Pakistan attacks targeting tankers carrying fuel for NATO

Four people were killed in northwest Pakistan Friday when more than two dozen armed attackers blew up oil tankers carrying fuel for NATO troops in Afghanistan, police said.

Militants wielding automatic weapons first killed two guards at the main gate of a terminal on the outskirts of Peshawar city, where 18 tankers were parked, senior police official Imtiaz Shah said.

The attackers then planted explosive devices under a dozen tankers, he said, and killed two drivers who were sleeping in the terminal.

About 15 tankers were damaged after catching fire in the blasts, which occurred around 2 a.m. Friday, Shah said.

    Why do we act as if the human Life is Now
    worthless. Animals are even better than Us.

        I do not condone totally the killing in the bank, but it was not for fun, it was for revenge and a consequence of the war.
        Taliban are targeting what they can. They cannot target the aircrafts, and some innocent pay the price. But the US did and are doing the same without necessity. I saw many videos and talk shows in the american TV showing the american (men and women) showiing satisfaction in killing people, even without knowing exactly who they were. This is killing for fun.
        Even the animals should be killed for necessity and not for fun, like in the US hunting camps.

        They talk like if everyone were a terrorist or an insurgent, but they are trained to remove the sensitiity, as the reality is they killed many non fighting soldiers and many civilians.. They care just for their security, even the life of western civilians is not important, as they killed Linda Norgrave without any problem.

        The only devilish actions are those of the hindu (criminality) babykillers, and the evil people are those spreading their hinduism (ignorance), not those following the truth 360 degrees ! ( I am nostalgi about Yacoby's comments.).

    of course no support from terrorists. They are still active in Pakistan. Yet the Pakistan firefighters are trying to help Nato. We must appreciate.
