Posted on 12/09/2008 1:46:58 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach
The U.S. military and NATO received a rude awakening this weekend after Taliban military units raided three separate terminals in Peshawar. More than 200 Humvees and trucks carrying supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan were destroyed in the attacks, which took place over the course of two days.
In the largest attack, a Taliban force of abut 200 to 300 men a company in military terms rampaged in one shipping terminal for 40 minutes before the security forces responded. The Pakistani military has promised to protect the supply columns, but no forces were in sight during the attacks.

Curious, do the vehicles come up to Peshawar from the south after being delivered by sea? Or do they come overland thru India or former soviet territory?
Wow that sucks.
What are American libs going to do?
I’m sorry, I don’t think smoking pot at a Phish concert is really going to help in this situation...
I think the port is Karachi.
Sunni Muslim 80%, Shia Muslim 19%, other 1%
Who wants to pull the troops out of Iraq and send more troops to Afghanistan - and why?
Let Europe pull their weight and contribute more!
Seems like a good idea to me!
With my suspicions intact as to obama’s shia muslim roots, I dread the possibility that he will use US troops to further the shia cause.
The proper response is to nuke Iran.
That’s my answer for every problem for the next couple of years. ;’)
Where is the nuance...sounds like a one track mind at work!
That was a big loss. I am sure the Pakistani military understand they are under obligation to keep the NATO line free from attacks. What do we do if they simply do not meet their commitments. To take the Russians up on their offer to railroad things into northern Afghanistan is equally shaky.
Obviously, the only possible solution to a one track mind is to nuke Iran. ;’)
I like to think outside the box, so my suggestion is to nuke Pakistan...and Iran.
