Pakistan will reassess its relationship with the United States, NATO and the International Security Assistance Force in the wake of Saturday morning's attack by NATO forces on two military checkpoints inside Pakistani territory along its border with Afghanistan, the prime minister's office said. "The prime minister will take the Parliament into confidence on the whole range of measures regarding matters relating to Pakistan's future cooperation with US/NATO/ISAF, in the near future," Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's office said in a statement. The attack by NATO helicopters killed 24 soldiers and wounded 13 others in Mohmand Agency, one of seven districts in the volatile region bordering Afghanistan, the Pakistani foreign ministry and military said Saturday in a statement. Pakistan's defense minister called for the United States to leave the airbase used to launch drone attacks against Taliban and al Qaeda targets on the border with Afghanistan, the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan reported then. "We have told them (the U.S. officials) to leave the airbase," Defense Minister Ahmed Mukhtar told reporters about Shamsi Airbase in Balochistan, APP reported. Mukhtar added that trust between the United States and Pakistan had eroded in the aftermath of the May 2 killing of Osama bin Laden by U.S. special forces acting inside the town of Abbottabad, Pakistan, without Islamabad's knowledge or permission. But the Americans never left, according to embassy sources in Islamabad and Pakistani military officials. U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan, Cameron Munter, said: "I regret the loss of life of any Pakistani servicemen, and pledge that the United States will work closely with Pakistan to investigate this incident." In response to the attack, Pakistan closed NATO's two supply routes into Afghanistan, Pakistani military and intelligence officials said. NATO trucks have used the routes, in Khyber Agency and Balochistan, to supply U.S. and international forces fighting in Afghanistan. About 50 containers and trucks carrying supplies for NATO were stopped at the town of Jamrud in Khyber Agency on Saturday morning, said Jamil Khan, a senior government official in Khyber Agency, bordering Afghanistan. NATO attack helicopters mailed 2 Pakistani checkpoints killing 24 soldiers. There must be a reason why this incident took place, maybe the Pak Army was firing at the troops in Afghanistan or some bullshit. No doubt the Pakistani government is responsible so to have an excuse to kick America out of their country so as to please the Islamic Jihad they harbor. Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader is still hiding there in Peshawar or Warziristan mountains. Osama Bin Laden was relaxing there in a military town watching porn for years, Pakistan protects their friends. Can you imagine if an American blew up a business district in Islamabad killing thousands then the U.S. Government gave him safe haven at Fort Hood Texas? Just wouldn't happen. Well things are heating up.
