US forces restrained! Invading troops sent packing

Reports have come in that between two to seven American military helicopters carrying Navy Seals and US commandos were fired on as they attempted to cross into the country’s territory from Afghanistan yesterday around midnight.

The incident took place near Angor Adda, a village in the tribal region of South Waziristan, where US commandos in helicopters raided a suspected Al-Qaeda and Taleban camp on September 3.

As expected, the Pentagon moved swiftly to deny the incident completely.

On Pakistan’s side, the military has not confirmed their involvement in the recent shooting at the border. Major Murad Khan, a Pakistan military spokesman said:

The US choppers were there at the border, but they did not violate our airspace. We confirm that there was a firing incident at the time when the helicopters were there, but our forces were not involved.

So that makes one thing clear. Either way, there WERE U.S forces and choppers at the border and they were fired upon and sent back. Whether this was the work of local tribesmen or the Pakistan Army is not conformed. While the military denies their involvement in the episode and Pentagon terms the whole issue as ‘never happened at all’, the local tribesmen and civilians at Angor Adda specifically stated that Pakistani troops stationed at the BP-27 check post fired at the helicopters and turned them away.

    Good. As Pakistan’s army shows its courage in this situation then there is nothing US would do other than running away. Our move is legitimate. Warning shots from ground are enough to scare them away or our fighter escorts in air. If they bomb again with UAVs it is our legitimate right to shoot the UAVs down. What could they say when they tried to get into the airspace of Iran and Syria. The UAVs were taken out with ease (both have good air defence Syria has S300 pmu 2) and in media nothing appeared until much later. If they come with F 15-F18 escorts with UAVs then we shouldn’t hesitate to mine the border immediately, then talk. Then we shall see that if it is easy or not to execute the plan saying that Pakistan is not cooperating and begin an all around bombing in FATA causing further instability and having more reasons to gain control on Pakistan’s nuclear assets.

    It is also important that our operations against terrorists continue. They and their symphatizers are more willing now about us allowing them a free space to carry on their attacks with our conflict with US but that is as we all know totally unacceptable. Terrorists will be cleansed from Pakistan no matter what the situation is. Terrorist symphatizers can talk what they want and sane people won’t listen them. We get support from the locals against terrorists as our Army has shown that they can stand up and act against US actions and that would increase our effectiveness against cleaning up the terrorists. Aerial strikes should aim more for the possible positions/buildings where heads of the terrorists can be found. Gunships are good at cleaning out the open areas. Doing this while taking precautions and doing the most to eliminate collateral damage would be a success.

    It would have been better if Musharraf was more assertive (he did good in ballistic and cruise missiles development) and we had purchased the high altitude SAMs 2-3 years ago or it would have been more deterrant if we had a modernised F-7 fleet that can fire BVR like sparrow or maybe AMRAAS. We would then have a basic protection against high altitude targets as well as cruise missiles instead of machine guns and WVR missiles but it is better late than doing nothing which would be too late then.

    Forget about F16s just like Iraq’s F16 deal after we are neutralised and don’t pose any threat to them it would appeal them more to give them to you and additionaly they are not the best planes in the market. They pretend to accept these deals to tie our hands temporarily until they finish their job with us. Our last deal with China is enough and has more opportunities and we should focus on the East now. It is high time we do that and stop putting our eggs in one basket! We have waited long for the BVR capabilities of JF-17s to arrive because of the engines etc. and soon we will have them but sufficient BVR capability is urgent and there should be no more waiting! Purchase of J10 and a modernization program to F7PG like Russia did to India’s Mig 21s would make us have sufficient bvr capability. In future maybe if China accepts, we can also talk about F 7 PG interceptors to start our aerospace industry.

    I am sure China understands our current situation as there is an urgent gap that needs to be filled in our high altitude air defence and we also need international support about our actions as we don’t have a famous and reliable media to help us make the international community support us actively.

    Well yes its all good that we are finally drawing the line wrt to our support in America’s WOT but will some one answer me this please that why are we claiming to stop any air raids or bombings by US forces when we ourselves pass on the exact location and coordinates of certain terrorist leaders moving about in the northern mountains for US bombers to strike at?
