    See, this is what I don't understand about Reuters and AP articles. They always add information at the bottom of the article that links weakly to the story. With this one, it seems like they added the body count to make light readers think us soldiers killed 120 pakistanis when they went over the border. I can't think of any other reason for them to choose that bit of trivia or word in such a way. They didn't even bother to separate it from the main body of the article with a title.

    The Paki's probably knew about this well in advance, and have to say this crap in public to appease their countrymen. You don't inadvertently drive in and search a town.............

    I wouldn't go about putting pakistan on the shortlist yet. Their military and the general qouted in the article seem to be defending our position. I think its important for Musharraf to maintain the image of having control over the borders in order to prevent public opinion to slide to the favor of the militant islamists in his country, Jamaat [crzy mo fos].
