NATO Attack: Pakistan finally wakes up

Pakistan is in uproar over the "unacceptable" U.S.-led NATO attack on a Pakistani military post, killing 24 Army personnel.

Looking at a series of events, the U.S- led NATO attack on Pakistan recently was certainly not "a mistake" but a "tit for tat" retaliation.

It's not surprising that NATO deliberately attacked a Pakistani post after the relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has soured for more than half a year. In May, the U.S. violated Pakistan's sovereignty by committing a covert operation in killing supposedly Osama Bin Laden. Then, Pakistan imprisoned a CIA contractor. Without evidence, the U.S. accused Pakistan on backing a militant attack on the U.S. embassy in Kabul. Moreover, the contention over Shamsi Air Base in Pakistan used by U.S. forces for drone strikes in Afghanistan and other parts of the region has deepen the rift between the U.S. and Pakistan.

It's obvious that the U.S. IGNORES any leader's plea to stop the drone attacks in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. In fact, the U.S. is doing everything to protect its illegal, barbaric defense toy against humanity.

It's about time Pakistan stood up to the U.S. and should not play along with the U.S. illusory "war on terror." In response to the attack, Pakistan did the right thing - shut down NATO supply routes into Afghanistan and ordered the U.S. to vacate the drone base in 15 days.

And it's about time for any Muslim nation to know that the U.S. has no real friends, just allies that are being used as pawns.
