A controversial new US tactic to mount counter-terrorist operations inside Pakistan has met with fresh hostility, it emerged yesterday, as Pakistani tribesmen representing half a million people vowed to switch sides and join the Taliban if Washington does not stop cross-border attacks by its forces from Afghanistan.It would be useful of course to find out if this Waziristan is in fact the Jilted Suitor for Merrill Lynch, or are they a diaffected faction that had been bidding on AIG.
Reacting to American missile attacks in north Waziristan last week, which followed an unprecedented cross-border ground assault earlier this month, tribal chiefs from the area called an emergency meeting on Saturday.
"If America doesn't stop attacks in tribal areas, we will prepare a lashkar [army] to attack US forces in Afghanistan," tribal chief Malik Nasrullah announced in Miran Shah, north Waziristan's largest city. "We will also seek support from the tribal elders in Afghanistan to fight jointly against America."

But clearly they are not being positive about the Great And Glorious, Clearly Victorious Mission Accomplished dance that is accuring all over wall street as All America Cheers on the War-President's Stunning Military Upset of the Unbeleivers and Heathenist Apostate Spawns of the Rich White Elitist Obamanite who are clearly against the sort of Aggressive And Abusive Regulatory oversight that has made Wall Street the NEW Eastern Front.
Hopefully where ever this Pakistan place is, they will get on the band wagon and embrace the new Alaska Economic Miracle that has been sweeping the world!!!
