For A Third Time We Bomb Women Peasants In Pakistan While Anti-Western Riots Rage There, Too

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Pakistan's dictator warned us to stop blowing away people inside his country so right in the middle of the cartoon riots which raged today in his country, we shoot a missile deep inside Pakistan, killing two tent dwelling women and destroying the pittiful remains of their encampment. Meanwhile, Britain now reels from accusations of torture on film as well as Americans are blown up by a bomb in Afghanistan, everything is falling rapidly apart.

From the BBC:
Two Pakistani nomad women have been killed after a rocket fired across the border from Afghanistan landed on their tent, Pakistani officials say.
Four children were hurt in the attack late on Saturday in North Waziristan.

Locals say US-led coalition forces in Afghanistan fired four rockets into Pakistan's tribal area after coming under fire from unknown attackers.

A US spokesman confirmed coalition forces had returned fire into Pakistan, but was not aware of casualties.
Aside from the asinine response to "provocations", what are we doing wasting a $300,000 missile shooting at ragged tents? Huh? What gives?

The reason we are going bankrupt is because we are spending way over board amounts to do way too little. These huge missiles and bombs are for substantial buildings. It would be like Richard the Lionhearted using a dozen catapults to subdue a shepard boy in his tent. Ridiculous.

This wasn't even a border attack. We are talking more than 75 miles inside Pakistan. It isn't like "we didn't know where the border was." Worse, the provocation wasn't anywhere equal to our response.

From the BBC:
Police in Pakistan have fired tear gas to disperse at least 3,000 students demonstrating against cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad.
Sixteen people were held for damaging public property in the protest in the north-western city of Peshawar.

Students also smashed hoardings advertising the Norwegian telecom giant, Telenor, and chanted "Death to America" and "God is Great".
OK, so crowds of screaming people are yelling, "Death to America" and then we violate their borders to kill more Pakistanis! When do we send dear old Karen Hughes over to explain to them how we are bombing them for peace and freedom and we love them and want to be friends. And Condi is sending a whole bunch of diplomats from Paris to here to do the same, to spread out and spread the good news that we love them, smooch*smooch.

Dead Eye Cheney's daughter is being paid a fortune to do this, too. I had a state department flack scold me that she was chosen for this job, to "outreach for women's issues" in the Muslim world. Have that brat trot over to Pakistan to explain again how we are liberating the women there by bombing their small tents with expensive rockets.

Meanwhile, the prisoner abuse issue grows. From the Guardian:
Royal Military Police have arrested a man in connection with video footage of British troops allegedly abusing Iraqi civilians, the Ministry of Defence confirmed today.
He was detained at 8.18pm last night, but officials refused to say where or confirm whether the man was a serving soldier.

An MoD spokesman said: "The RMP investigation into these extremely serious allegations is at very early stage. We can confirm that an arrest has been made in conjunction with this investigation."

He said the RMP would continue gathering evidence before deciding whether to bring the person before a court martial.

Earlier, the Iraqi government today expressed its "deepest concern" over a video that apparently showed British troops attacking defenceless teenagers in Basra.
Like the American military, the crime will be "photographing what we really do," not "Geeze, we better stop doing this!" The American investigation of identical crimes has already petered out without any Americans really being punished except for those who took pictures. Meanwhile, Bush wonders if we can ship the African pirates to Gitmo and torture them there, I assume. From the Telegraph:
A United Nations inquiry has called for the immediate closure of America's Guantanamo Bay detention centre and the prosecution of officers and politicians "up to the highest level" who are accused of torturing detainees.

The UN Human Rights Commission report, due to be published this week, concludes that Washington should put the 520 detainees on trial or release them.
Of course, this will make things slightly better for both the Muslim world and for America since this concentration camp is highly illegal, totally immoral and good only for putting Bush, Cheney and their gang behind bars and I don't mean bars serving booze.

This camp of horrors is a blight on our nation, but then, the White House of Horrors is a blight, too. The sight of Cheney blasting away wildly at domestic birds which have never flown in their lives, killing hundreds and hundreds of them just to see the blood and feathers and to feel sadistic joy in killing, this same psychopath, and he is one, he just shot a man at nearly point blank range---this murderous man is perfectly fine with us dropping bombs and missiles on innocent civilians here and there and everywhere!

Arrest Cheney. Now. Before he kills even more people. Speaking of which, From Rawstory:
The unmasking of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson by White House officials in 2003 caused significant damage to U.S. national security and its ability to counter nuclear proliferation abroad, RAW STORY has learned.

According to current and former intelligence officials, Plame Wilson, who worked on the clandestine side of the CIA in the Directorate of Operations as a non-official cover (NOC) officer, was part of an operation tracking distribution and acquisition of weapons of mass destruction technology to and from Iran.
Libby already fingered "Big Time/Bad Shot" Cheney. So, while he is under this cloud, he should resign. Then they can arrest him for refusing to talk to the police after shooting someone in the chest and face. Then we can have a trial and....

Put him in Gitmo.
