Pakistan Taliban Threatens To Kill Pervez Musharraf On Return

Islamabad - The Pakistani Taliban have threatened to use suicide bombers to target former military ruler Pervez Musharraf when he returns home from self-exile to lead his party in the upcoming general election.

In a video released to reporters in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan said Musharraf will be the "main target" of the militants on his return.

Ihsan asked Musharraf to surrender to the Taliban.

Adnan Rashid, a militant who was involved in an earlier attempt to assassinate 69-year-old Musharraf, said the Taliban had formed a special squad of suicide bombers to target the former President.

Rashid, who escaped from prison last year, is shown in the video training a group of Taliban fighters assigned to target Musharraf.

He threatened Musharraf and called on him to surrender to the Taliban.

"Otherwise we will target you at such a place you will not know," he said.

In the six-minute video, both Ihsan and Rashid referred to the 2007 military raid on the radical Lal Masjid in Islamabad and said, "We will not leave you alive." Ihsan also invited insurgents from Balochistan province to join the Taliban.

The raid against extremist elements holed up in Lal Masjid was ordered by Musharraf, who was also the army chief at the time.

Rashid was accused of masterminding several attacks on Musharraf.

The former junior technician of the Pakistan Air Force was sentenced to death by a military court for an attempt on Musharraf's life in 2003.

That will be a justice well deserved and served.

After all Musharraf is the architect of current Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan.

The seeds of the ‘current Taliban insurgency’ were sowed in Washington when Bush administration decided to allow Musharraf to spirit away by airlift hundreds, if not thousands, of Taliban operatives cornered by the advancing Northern Alliance in Kunduz in November, 2001. Pakistan relocated those Taliban cadres including Mullah Mohammed Omar in Quetta, the provincial capital of Baluchistan (now relocated to Karachi by Pakistani ISI to protect them from possible US drone attacks) and Haqqani network (HQN) in North Waziristan from where Mullah Omar’s QST and Haqqani’s HQN have been planning raids in Afghanistan ever since.

Of course, Taliban and Musharraf need not worry -Musharraf will be rewarded with 16-year old virgins by Almighty Allah even in Hell.

No matter what...he kept Pakistan together by keeping his supporters and Osama's supporters apart. I think his return is part of a bigger picture....I consider Muscharof (sp) the good guy...the guy in power...the bad guy

And our dear Obama has inserted us in every damn Islamic state in the Middle East. We have new enemies....bigger enemies...and we're paying them off besides.

Since many acts of terrorism around the world have a link to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a lot of them sponsored by it, Pakistan would be best dismantled.

“said the Taliban had formed a special squad of suicide bombers to target the former President.”

One can only hope they practice feverishly in advance with live explosives. Rest in Pieces
