Taliban Murder 21 Kidnapped Pakistani Soldiers

The Taliban shot dead 21 kidnapped Pakistani soldiers.
The soldiers were taken hostage Thursday at two camps outside Peshawar.

Channel News Asia reported

Taliban militants have shot dead 21 Pakistani soldiers who they had kidnapped in raids on two camps outside Peshawar in the troubled northwest of the country, officials said Sunday.

Around 200 militants, armed with heavy weapons including mortars and rocket launchers, stormed the government paramilitary camps before dawn on Thursday, killing two security personnel and kidnapping 23.

Officials said the bodies of 21 security personnel had been discovered in the wilderness not far from the camps, their hands tied before they were shot. Two others — one wounded and one unhurt — were also found.

The camps are outside Peshawar, the main city of northwest Pakistan, close to the restive tribal areas that border Afghanistan, which are regarded as havens for Taliban and Al-Qaeda linked militants.

“We found 21 bullet riddled bodies of security personnel a short while ago in an uninhabited area,” local government official Naveed Akbar told AFP.

“One was found alive but wounded and admitted to hospital while another managed to escape unhurt.”

Gul Shehzad, another government official, said authorities received information just before midnight that some bodies were lying in the wilderness, within about four kilometres of the camps.

    Mustering up any kind of sympathy for the Pakistanis is a rather difficult endeavor…

  • ★FALCON★

    The Taliban were obliterated, and only by a stroke of luck, after hanging by a thread, were they able to comeback.

    I wonder how that happened, no I don’t.

  • Pink Tie Republican

    Muslims killing Muslims, it’s all good. Barry’s boyz doing what they do.

  • Obamao

    Need to send our Pak and Talib friends more weapons…

    They will work out their differences in a civilized way.

  • SayItIsn’tSo

    I don’t give a rat’s ahz about ANY Pakistani life anymore. Especially after they (including the Pakistani Gov’t and Police) harbored Osama Bin Laden for YEARS, and then are NOW holding THE VERY MAN (a doctor) that helped the US get to Bin Laden in prison…..while they treat him like shyte. Karma’s a bytch, you Pakistanis. Just sayin….

    Morons believe in myths like “religion”, and then get offended when their idiotic “believers” kill them for not joining in lockstep? Magic Jesus wasn’t a murderer like illiterate pedophile Magic Muhammad was.

  • squeaky

    And yet it was Kissinger who thought we should “tilt” toward Pakistan as a more dependable ally in the region than India and it was Regan who armed the Taliban to fight the Russians. We reap what we sow.

    Who Is Responsible for the Taliban?

    [As the United States prepared for war against Afghanistan, some academics or journalists argued that Usama bin Ladin’s al-Qa’ida group and Afghanistan’s Taliban government were really creations of American policy run amok. A pervasive myth exists that the United States was complicit for allegedly training Usama bin Ladin and the Taliban. For example, Jeffrey Sommers, a professor in Georgia, has repeatedly claimed that the Taliban had turned on “their previous benefactor.” David Gibbs, a political science professor at the University of Arizona, made similar claims. Robert Fisk, widely-read Middle East correspondent for The Independent, wrote of “CIA camps in which the Americans once trained Mr. bin Ladin’s fellow guerrillas.”(1) Associated Press writer Mort Rosenblum declared that “Usama bin Ladin was the type of Soviet-hating freedom fighter that U.S. officials applauded when the world looked a little different.”(2)

    In fact, neither bin Ladin nor Taliban spiritual leader Mullah Umar were direct products of the CIA. The roots of the Afghan civil war and the country’s subsequent transformation into a safe-haven for the world’s most destructive terror network is a far more complex story, one that begins in the decades prior to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.]

    speaking of arming the Taliban..

    here ya go Lady Mo..

    “We are Taliban”


  • Lady Mondegreen

    Facts, my dears, are facts and I suggest you do som reading. We favored Pakistan over India precisely because we thought that religious Islamic Pakistan was less compatible with communism than more secular (and pluralistic) India. And we ran weapons to Afghanistan’s freedom fighters through Zia’s Pakistan. It was a good strategy in the short term, and it may even have been the right thing to do at the time. It certainly helped bring about the end of the Sovient Union. But (to quote Charlie Wilson) “we f*cked up the endgame” and we’re still paying for it.

    In hindsight, and especially after the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, it is easy to criticize Washington’s shortsightedness. But American policymakers had a very stark choice in the 1980s: Either the United States could support an Afghan opposition, or they could simply cede Afghanistan to Soviet domination, an option that might result in an extension of Soviet influence into Pakistan.

    Contrary to the beliefs of many critics of American foreign policy, the United States is not able to dictate its desires even to foreign clients. Washington needed Pakistan’s cooperation, but Pakistan was very mindful of its own interests. Chief among these, especially following the secession of Bangladesh in 1971, was minimizing the nationalist threat to Pakistani integrity. Islamabad considered Afghanistan, especially with successive Afghan government’s Pushtunistan claims, to pose a direct challenge to Pakistani national security. Accordingly, Islamabad only allowed religiously based rather than nationalist opposition groups to operate on Pakistani territory. If American policymakers wanted to oppose Soviet imperialism in Afghanistan, then they simply would have to accede to Pakistani interests.

    The United States is not without fault, however. Following the Soviet Union’s collapse, Washington could have more effectively pressured Pakistan to tone down the support for Islamic fundamentalism, especially after the rise of the Taliban. Instead, Washington ceded her responsibility and gave Pakistan a sphere of influence in Afghanistan unlimited by any other foreign pressure.]

    btw, that’s just one mans opinion, i’m sure versions differ from here to
    there, also certain top secret elements that may or may not have only
    helped influence, but explain the realities of the situation a lot clearer
    were left unknown, all in all, however, the report is about right..
