    2 Pak Army officers killed in blast near Afghan border


    Two senior Pakistan Army officers and a soldier were today killed in an IED blast while they were returning after visiting posts along the Pak-Afghan border in the restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.


    Major Gen Sanaullah who was the general officer, Commander Swat division, along with Lt Col Touseef were killed when the remote-controlled improvised explosive device planted along the road exploded.

    They were on their way back after spending a night with troops at a forward post.

    Maj Gen Sanaullah, Lt Col Tauseef, Commanding Officer 33 Baloch Regiment and Lance Naik Irfan Sattar were killed in the blast near Binshai in Upper Dir, the Inter Services Public Relations said.

    The killings of the Pakistan Army's senior officers came at a time when the country is preparing to hold talks with the militants to put an end to the surging violence, which has so far left over 40,000 people dead including 5,000 security officials.

    The incident also comes just a day after the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government announced gradual withdrawal of troops from Malakand division starting next month.

    As per the plan, in the initial stage, security forces will be withdrawn from Buner and Shangla districts starting mid-October.

    These are not ordinary officers.

    Its quite rare for even a battalion commander to get killed now-a-days, let alone a brigade commander.
    And here we have the GOC of the 17 Div blown up. Thats possibly one of the biggest hit, if not the biggest hit, the TTP have managed in recent past.

    And yes, The TTP have actually taken responsibility for this attack. Maybe it was a lucky shot, maybe a well co-ordinated plan, but whatever the intent, the TTP have indeed jolted the senior ranks of the PA.

    Btw, RIP to the three dead.

    i do remember, first time i heard about a bomb blast in Pakistan by these militants in 2006/07, and we were very surprised, why would the Islamic militants bomb in Pakistan itself? even Taliban was trained in Pakistan, Al Qaeda leaders were hidden in Pakistan itself, why would they target common civilians, mainly Muslims of Pakistan? but by the 2007, so many bomb blasts in pakistan we read that, we were just left with open mouth........ terrorism in Kashmir started since a bomb blast by 1989, and almost ended by 2007. and interestingly, it then switched to Pakistan since 2007?????

    and on the top of that, growth rate of Pakistan was too low since late 90s. we knew Pakistan as higher per capita income group than India and China both by early 90s. but even if India was blamed to copy Pakistani economic reforms in 1991, the Indian Economic Reform, which was then improved by late 90s too, India then came at a very high growth rate since 2002, while this was the time when growth rate of pakistan slowed down to its population growth rate only. just no industrialization there, and now its a too poor country than India or China.........

    => India copied Pak reforms in 1990s: Nawaz Sharif

    hence, we found two conclusions about terrorism in South Asia since late 80s:

    1st, since Soviet Union withdrawn from Afghanistan by 1989, the most wanted terrorists like Ilyas Kashmiri, trained by Pakistan itself against Soviet Union in 80s, then switched to armed struggle in Indian Kashmir since 1989 with first bomb blast there that year. (before 1989, Indian Kashmir was one of the most peaceful region of the world.)

    2nd, Kashmir again became one of the reasonably peaceful region of world by 2007/08, with highest tourists there by 2011. while this Pakistan's sponsored terrorism then switched to Pakistan itself since 2007 :ranger:
    => J&K never had it so good: 1.3 million tourists - India - DNA :truestory:



    in fact, Kashmir became a top tourist destination even by 2009 itself, as below :ranger:

    This tells us an interesting story about the Pakistan army. The officers spent a night with troops but were killed on their way back. That means that someone among the troops let out information that the officers were there. Someone gave up to the minute information on when they left and which way there were headed so that an IED mubarak could be readied for the afsars.

    The Pakistan army, the same army that defeated Indian kafirs in 10,000 wars in 10,000 years, the same army that defeated the USSR and USA and Israel is now in serious trouble.

    Isn't that because their own bad ass people are fighting each other? It's like T-1000 vs T-1000 instead of us mere mortals vs T-1000s.

    How pathetic.

    It tickles me no end to see the corner that Pakistanis have been forced into. They first wanted to set themselves out as "different from India" by defining India as Hindu and themselves as "Pure" Islamic. This honeymoon lasted until the Pakistan army got its ass whupped repeatedly. They then shifted the focus to try and get Islam to fight India by appealing to mujahids and clerics to set up lashkars of various hues - who would all come together and fight side by side with the ass-whupped Pakistan army to defeat India.

    Even this was not much of an original idea. It was the US, with loads of money and experience in promoting militias and rebels in South America who backed Pakistan's "Islamic Lashkar" - the Taliban, to hit the USSR in revenge for Vietnam. Pakistani hypocrisy and cynicism surprises me. Did they think all Islamic fighters were simply stupid and keep on doing their bidding forever? Sooner or later something had to give.

    This is a classic case of the US telling Pakistan "You give us fighters. We fund you and them. What you do with them later is not our business"

    In response the Pakistanis said "We will give our mujahids, our students the Taliban and they will fight Islamic jihad against all kafirs, namely India"

    Problem is, this was simply an assumption. The Pakistan army and dung brains like Zaid Hamid assumed that Islam would automatically make the Taliban slobber after Paki asses and make them want to kill themselves fighting India while the Pakistan army's officers and their chamchas like Zaid Hamid got fat and rich on US money.

    Now Zaid Hamid had to resort to this pathetic statement on Facebook, to be read by the two and a half Pakis who understand English and they are supposed to believe that USA and India are fighting Pakistan via TTP and that Pakistan will defeat USA, India and TTP all together. :scared1:

    Mind you, any defeat inflicted on the TTP wil be tom tommed as a defeat of USA and India by these nincompoops.
    :rofl:
