Some of Barry’s old college buddies?
The best thing would be to set them off in place,
for their own good of course.
How do they know the gun battle is going to last three hours when they are still in it?
I wonder how the Iranians would feel if a
anti-Mullah clique had stolen an nuclear weapon.
Time to sweat Imam.
I wonder if they're muslims?
The morning paper is already out over there...with the complete story...time zones and all...you have to take that into account.
Gunmen storm military air base in Pakistan
Gunmen have attacked a Pakistani military air base triggering a fierce fire-fight with security forces that lasted several hours.
Several militants wearing military uniforms and suicide belts stormed Minhas air base at Kamra, near the capital Islamabad, just after dawn.
Six militants were killed but at least one soldier also died and the base commander was seriously injured.
It is not clear if other gunmen remain unaccounted for.
All Pakistan’s air bases have been placed on high alert following the attack.
Shortly after the attack began, a police officer outside the air base, Hafeez Aulakh, said he could hear intense gunfire and see flames leaping up from inside, the Associated Press news agency reported.
Militants did not reach the hangars inside the base, the air force said, although rocket-propelled grenades fired from outside are said to have damaged one aircraft.
Reporters who reached the scene several hours later said there was no sound of gunfire.
“Security personnel are now in the process of scanning the entire area,” the air force spokesman said.
Base commander Air Commodore Muhammad Azam was reported to be seriously wounded but in a stable condition in hospital.
Earlier reports said two soldiers had died, but this was later revised.
When you read the script at rehearsal?
Obama is too busy arming the dHS, the social security administration and NOAA with billions of rounds of ammo for use on Americans to be bothered with his foreign buds getting a nuke. The Taliban and Islamists are not Obama’s enemies. Apparently the American people are his ‘enemies’.
Wouldn’t his old buds be over in Pock-ee-stahn? I think that’s a different country. Or maybe it’s the 57th state.
Normal people retaliate after the main event.
They'll nuke themselves, just to provoke the time line.
ignore the music but just check last year U-tube recording of so called officers of this base
Bet the Indian military is paying attention to this.
This base house - mirage rebuild factory , avionics factory, mushak production lines are all nearby
Now’s the time for us to act. If we nuke it, we won’t be blamed.
Only two planes are damage. Looks like complete failure. LOL !!
These toys were available and they only damaged 2.
Kamra has about 14 JF-17s, 1 Saab-2000, 2-3 C-130s, a few F-16s and Mirages
