See how they seethe?
So the bottom line is this. Pakistan’s knee-jerk response to the 28 Pakistani soldiers being killed in a friendly fire incident with US troops, -by cutting off supply line to US troops in Afghanistan- shows the true colors of the regime. It’s besides the point that they were guilty in initiating hostilities, the Pakistan regime has never been an “ally” in any respect of the word, just a co-belligerent when it suited them.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Both sides said they believed they were attacking insurgents along the border. A senior Pakistani defense official acknowledged that Pakistani troops fired first, sending a flare, followed by mortar and machine-gun fire, toward what he said was “suspicious activity” in the brush-covered area below their high-altitude outpost barely 500 yards from the border.
According to Afghan security officials, their commandos were engaged with U.S. Special Operations troops in a nighttime raid against suspected Taliban insurgents when they came under cross-border fire and called in an airstrike.
NOTE: Most likely the reason why there was no joint communication with the Pakistanis, is that they cannot be trusted at all, further underlining my point in the above. I would go so far as to say that they possibly knew of the joint team on their border and were protecting the Taliban on their turf. KGS
