It has discovered a new bone – the spine
In the spirit of neighbourly love we should give a small thumbs up to the Pakistan government for finally finding at least the tiniest sliver of backbone and refuses to simply look the other way when NATO and US ‘accidentally’ murder it's civilians.
Pakistan is finally hitting them where it hurts - supplies. They have blockaded the NATO supply route and decided to wait it out until they received an apology from the west for considering their citizens little more than target practise.
Last we heard the US had tendered a formal apology so looks like this skirmish went goes to Pakistan. Now it's up to everyone to restore the usual bonhomie of the US- Pak relationship (which is stretching the term almost to breaking point).
Meanwhile the Taliban certainly made hay in the bright glow of blazing fires. Repeated attacks led to the torching of over 50 trucks.
