Militants Kill 10 Climbers in Himalayas of Pakistan




Killing mountain climbers? This is crazy. Supposedly this attack by Islamic militants was in retaliation for American drone strikes in the region, but only 1 of the 10 killed was American.

quote:

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — In one of the most brazen attacks on foreigners in Pakistan in recent years, gunmen disguised as paramilitary police shot dead 10 tourists, including one American, and their Pakistani guide on a mountain-climbing expedition in the country’s rugged north, officials said.

The attack occurred at the foot of Pakistan’s second-highest peak, Nanga Parbat, highlighting the growing reach of Islamist militants in even the most remote areas. It is also likely to damage the country’s already struggling tourist industry.

A spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the killings, which he said were in retaliation for American drone strikes in the tribal belt.

This can't be, according to the US Governmet there is no such thing as an islamist terrorist.

By killing 9 tourists who were citizens of somewhere other than America, and a fellow Pakistani?

I didn't say it was right or justified or that it will even be remotely effective in getting us to stop our drone attacks but think about it.. if you're the Taliban and have no military response to the drone attacks the best you can hope for is responding to each drone attack but doing something like this and hope that the U.S. backs off its drone attacks in order to save civilian lives.

Known as collateral damage in times of armed conflicts. Not saying it's right but that's how people interpret it before settling into bed for a good night's sleep.

If only Obama had been elected we'd be out of the region, the slaughter of brown people would have stopped and the world would respect/love us again.
