After the despicable and shady release of US CIA/Blackwater operator “Raymond Davis”, USA has sunk to even greater lows. Raymond Davis was involved in espionage (photos of Pakistan’s defence installations on the indian border) and terrorist activities (phone contacts with terrorists in Waziristan) inside Pakistan, as well as responsible for gunning down 2 Pakistanis in broad daylight on a busy road. After Raymond Davis’s ‘release’ against all norms of justice and decency, USA has resorted to deliberate killing of Pakistanis in a show of morbid and callous power.
We keep hearing about drone attacks along with ‘figures’ of dead terrorists/militants. Just hours after Davis’s release, USA Predator drones launched an attack in Waziristan which till the writing of this post had claimed 41 lives. USA as usual claimed all were terrorists, but now the truth has come out. The victims were a jirga (a meeting of tribal elders) and many innocents have been martyred in this murderous attack. USA wanted to vent its anger and show who’s boss to Pakistan Army and ISI after the Davis affair; so as soon as the murdering terrorist was released, USA unleashed a deliberate not accidental attack on Pakistan’s tribesmen.
Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani in an unsually strong release has exposed the americans for the killers that they are,

Rawalpindi – March 17, 2011:
Chief of Army Staff, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, strongly condemns the Predator Strike carried out today in North Waziristan Agency resulting into loss of innocent lives. It is highly regrettable that a jirga of peaceful citizens including elders of the area was carelessly and callously targeted with complete disregard to human life. In complete violation of human rights, such acts of violence take us away from our objective of elimination of terrorism. It is imperative to understand that this critical objective can not be sacrificed for temporary tactical gains. Security of people of Pakistan, in any case, stands above all.
Pakistan Army condoles with the families whose dear and near ones have been martyred in this senseless attack. Pakistan Army shares the grief of people of Waziristan. Troops on ground have been ordered to render all possible assistance to bereaved families.
Pakistan Army wishes to assure brave people of Waziristan that we shall do our best and utmost to protect their life, honour and dignity at all costs. Pakistan Army is fighting the terrorists and not its brethren in tribal areas.
Pakistan Army has already launched a protest in the strongest possible terms. It has been highlighted clearly that such aggression against people of Pakistan is unjustified and intolerable under any circumstances.
The drone attacks are a sham, the war on terror is a sham, and the US now stands as one of the great terrorists of our times. SHAME ON USA which has the blood of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, Afghanis and Pakistanis on its hands. We should realize the dark evil face of our enemy which has been unsuccessfully sold to the public as an ally, a friend. The USA has deliberately carried out bombings of civilians not only in tribal areas but also in our cities to engulf Pakistan in the US war on terror. Let the US have Raymond Davis as long as we reclaim our homeland PAKISTAN from the evil clutches of the dying ‘superpower’ USA. Let us rid ourselves of the corrupt who serve as the lackeys of USA. They can be bought but we will not surrender Pakistan.
