A SCHOOL in Pakistan Trains al Qaeda? That's Unpossible!
Every few months a skirmish between Pakistani and Indian border troops flares up. One is happening as I write this:
A Pakistani military official accused Indian troops of "unprovoked" shelling starting at 11:15 p.m. local time Tuesday night in Shakma sector in Pakistan-held Kashmir, across the border from Kargil on the Indian side. An army captain was killed and another soldier was seriously wounded. Pakistani troops responded to the shelling, and the exchange of fire continued for three hours, the official said.Every time I hear about these little border skirmishes, I say to myself, Self, I really hope this turns into all out war and the Pakistanis suffer. I mean, really suffer.
An Indian army officer said Indian troops in Kargil only responded after Pakistani soldiers fired upon their positions using mortars and automatic weapons. The officials both spoke on condition of anonymity in line with military policy.
And then I read stuff like this, and my fantasy escalates to India nuking Pakistan:
The United States has placed unprecedented sanctions on an Islamic school in northwest Pakistan for allegedly training and financing fighters from Al Qaeda and other militant groups.In response the school denied the charge, claiming they only taught their students religion.
The sanctions against Jamia Taleem-Ul-Quran-Wal-Hadith Madrassa, also known as the Ganj Madrassa, in the city of Peshawar were the first to target an Islamic school, the U.S. Department of the Treasury said in a statement Tuesday.
Which doesn't sound like much of a denial given the tenants of their particular brand of Islam, does it?
