The end of OBL

Osama bin Laden has been killed by American forces in a secure compound not far from an elite military training base inside Pakistan. The Pakistan Government say they did not know he was there. Do they think we were born yesterday? If some senior government officials and probably senior military officials were not involved I will eat my boat.

Pakistan, despite their platitudes and bullshit, is a known terrorist country. At the time when Salman Rushdie was given a knighthood a very senior member of the government said (in the house) that someone should 'suicide bomb' Rushdie. Yes he later apologised but the point is he said it!

When working abroad I met many decent hard working Pak nationals, ordinary individuals that still respected the empire as it was, but they would not trust their government or their military and neither do I.
