    Pakistani Police, not the army. That's who dies. The police. The Pakistan army is supporting the ones killing the police.

    Wer going to see alot of incidents like this for a while since Bin Laden was killed, I guess they feel they have to avenge his death.

    Look where they are coming from. The suicide bombers had Russian passports with valid visas for Iran.

    So were they Pakistanis with Russian passports, or actually Russians? alot of terrorists carry passports from other countries to avoid detection in operations.

    Can't say but likely just one of the many varieties with Russian 'stolen' passports and Iranian 'stolen' Visas. :razz:

    I have a feeling the Iran/Russia link isn't just a coincidence either Ropey...

    Grav, what do you see as Russia's role/motive in this?

    Why would they be interested in stirring up trouble in Pakistan?

    To be honest I really can't figure it out, but what does Russia gain by helping Iran with their nuclear ambitions? you would think the Russians would find some solidarity with us because we are dealing with the same kind of Islamic terrorist threat, but the Russians seem to still have this cold war mentality and want to stick it to us whenever they can. I think the Russians want us out of Pakistan, Afghanistan and especially the bases we set up in the former soviet block countries.
