Forty five scalps I greet thee with

Variation on the theme

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

It’s the time to trot out the FATWAT credentials again, only this time there’s no al-Qaeda’s Number 3 or Bin Laden’s right hand man to hand over. Instead 45 militants, mostly foreigners’, were killed when Pakistani security forces attacked their camp in North Waziristan. Elite commandos from Pakistan’s Special Services Group, twelve helicopters (six of which were gunships) participated in the massive operation’. (via India Uncut)

This was organised in honour of President Bush’s visit to Pakistan. If the attack really did some damage to the infrastructure of terrorism, perhaps Bush should come by more often.

The terrorists too greeted Bush in their usual way — suspected car-bombs went off near the US consulate in Karachi. Update: It appears that a US diplomat was killed in the blast.
