Uzair.Javaid | 13 years ago | Reply This comes at a time of extreme international pressure, Pakistan was under. A time when International media alongside indo-Us nexus tries to create a public opinion that every other attack comes from Pakistan. Recent remarks by Mrs.Clinton also suggest some likely plans of US getting a mandate for Spec-Ops inside Pakistani terrain with india over the other side to take revenge over a so called Pakistani backed mumbai attack. Pakistan Fires 2 of its missiles, that certainly would force to calm down the remarks being made from either of the 2 countries. It is a job well done to safeguard the interest and security of Pakistan, that too under a government that is known of being a highly Pro-US politicians.
