KARACHI: 

The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan has said that the Nato attack on Pakistani check posts has proved that America “can never be a friend of Pakistan” and that Islamabad should accept Taliban’s stance after this attack, reports the BBC.  Mukarrum Khurasani, the assistant of the Taliban commander in Mohmand Agency Umar Khalid told the BBC over the phone that Pakistan should sever relations with the US.

He clarified that no talks were being held with the Pakistan government as “Pakistan is a slave country and talks with a slave country are fruitless”. He said that Pakistan should not confine to stopping supply to Nato, rather it should take revenge for every person killed.

Khurasani said that TTP men were present in all areas and only change places as tactics when the situation requires. He said that the TTP accept the leadership of the Afghan Taliban and enjoy good relations with them.

    Indians need to learn (though they never do) while they gloat on being the Regional Poodle for USA. While Pakistan extricates itself from US, India hugs US and is ready to send troops into Afghanistan.

    America and taliban are both menaces for our country.
    While we can afford good relations with America if we get a brave leadership who stands up for our rights same cannot be said for taliban.

    @Maoist: “Indians need to learn (though they never do) while they gloat on being the Regional Poodle for USA. While Pakistan extricates itself from US, India hugs US and is ready to send troops into Afghanistan.”

    India has never rented its army out to US in the past and it is not proposing to do that in the future. Unclear where you read that India would be supplying soldier to NATO force in Afghanistan? India only will train Afghan soldiers very different from what you are suggesting. That too is based on agreement with Afghanistan NOT USA.

    It is Ayub, Zia and Musharraf who have rented the Pak army to US.So if there is any learning that needs to happen, it is clear which country needs to learn.

    Ok! America may not be friend but definitely not an enemy of Pakistan like the taliban! Look at the facts! How many pakistani lives did the taliban take? Tens of thousands. Incl. Women and children and mostly innocent!
    Talibans think they’re friends of Pakistan? Well, friends like them, we don’t need enemies!

    Taliban need to shut up, they are worse than any American, the taliban have killed thousands of our people, America has only killed less than 100.
