Pakistan's army warns US not to stage more raids
Associated Press ^ | May 5, 2011 4:23 PM (ET) | CHRIS BRUMMITT

ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan's army broke its silence Thursday over the U.S. commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden, acknowledging its own "shortcomings" in efforts to find the al-Qaida leader but threatening to review cooperation with Washington if there is another similar violation of Pakistani sovereignty.

The tough-sounding statement was a sign of the anger in the army. It also appeared aimed at appeasing politicians, the public and the media in the country over what's viewed by many here as a national humiliation delivered by a deeply unpopular America.

While international concerns are centered on suspicions that elements of the security forces sheltered bin Laden, most Pakistanis seem more upset that uninvited American soldiers flew into the country, landed on the ground and launched an attack on a house - and that the army was unaware and unable to stop them. That it happened in an army town, next door to a military academy and close to the capital has added to the embarrassment.

Had they co-operated (and not lied) they wouldn't have been humiliated.

Were I POTUS, I’d advise them to chill out and have a long cool glass of STFU. I’d also remind them about that $30 bil a year we toss their way.

Cut their money off. If they give us an ultimatum, give them one back. Quit playing with them.

And how are they going to stop future raids?

Remember this is only in the news because of the crash of one chopper and that one live twitter.

Don’t the Pakis have enough to worry about with India without pissing USA off?

They can review their co-operation any time they like and be damned. The only co-operation they have given us is to cash the checks we send them/.

That was the same tone of warning the women’s dorm manager warned our frat: “do not raid the coed’s dorm”. We still did though (wink).

If we had told them, Osama would be living in a different safe house and the Pakis would have mucho dinero in their pockets.

The Paki Army was unaware and unable to stop them. The Seals were on the ground for over 40 miniutes. Bin Laden’s house was less than a thousand yards from a military base. Why couldn’t they respond?

Hmm. Maybe they will prosecute another “haditha massacre” show trial against the Americans.

Here’s another raid we should do in Pak: Confiscate their nukes. Destroy their capacity to make them. Problem solved.

Bam had a college buddy from Pakistan. He even went there. I’m sure he wanted to blab but was kept from doing so. He’s probably crying because the Paki’s are mad.

100% agree! We should be bombing every madrassa school and mosque in that s**thole. The have done nothing for us. Does anyone know if we can easily be supplied through Turkmenistan?

We need to pull foreign aid from Pakistan and let the chips fall where they make. No football spiking necessary. They already detest us. China calls them "friend" and Pakistan has been anything but a friend, demonstrated by this gigantic security breach. We've become an open-ended ATM for a country that backs our enemies.

Pakistan army orders cut in US military personnel

Snip: The Pakistani army also warned that it would review its military and intelligence cooperation with Washington if the United States carries out any more similar raids. Earlier, the government had warned of "disastrous consequences" if the U.S. staged a similar attack on its territory.

China urges world to back Pakistan in terror fight

Snip: Foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu stopped short of directly criticising the daring raid by US special forces on Pakistani soil that ended with bin Laden’s death but said national sovereignty “should be respected” at all times.

More Abbottabad-like raids not to be tolerated: COAS

Snip: COAS threatened to review cooperation with the United States if it conducted more raids like the one that killed Osama bin Laden.

The tough-sounding statement was a sign of the anger in the army

Maybe the Pakistan army doesn't realize they could be leveled in a heartbeat. Who in the hell do they think they are. A full scale war would be the same that happened to Iraq except the waste land would not be occupied by us and no money from us to rebuild.

Plausible deniability. Most likely scenario is we found OBL, sent Hillary and Boehner over there to confront them, they agreed to let us handle it as long as we didn’t kill their people and they could deny any knowledge of it later on.

Wasn’t it Pakistan that botched up his capture a few years back in a joint venture with the US?
