Twitter alert: Shut up Clinton

Hillary Clinton had revealed her suspicions of al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri residing somewhere in Pakistan.

As soon as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during a visit to India, revealed her suspicions about al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri residing somewhere in Pakistan, local Twitter users kicked off the trend #ShutUpClinton.

While most of the tweets said nothing more than asking Clinton to “shut up”, there were others who defended Pakistan from the allegations. Still others countered Clinton’s arguments by poking holes in US foreign policy.

    Provide proofs of #WMDs in #Iraq,

    Why? Is Osama Bin Laden not enough?

    yes,because living in denial is such a comforting thing to do.Where was osama found from? Was it from afghanistan or a cave somewhere?
    Instead of lashing out at others,maybe we should get our heads out of the sand for once and face upto reality.Not only was the most sought after terrorist living in one of our cities but thousands of other terrorists have been found to be residing amongst us.Getting angry at foreigners won’t change reality,we should work on making our society a less inviting refuge for religious fanatics.

    Abusing others when they point out the facts is only a poor reflection on one’s own self. After many years of telling the world that usama was not living in pakistan,that he was in afghanistan or in the middle east,usama was finally found living in one of our major cities and that too for over 5 years and we didn’t seem to know he was amongst us.
    Why insult others instead of facing upto the bitter truth?

    Just shows why the world considers pakistan a nation of day dreamers, who convince themselves that they dreams are reality. It becomes worse when they talk about their dreams with the outsiders and just end up making a fool of themselves.

    This hashtag clearly illustrates the problem in our country today. Instead of working to remove our faults we start hurling insults and abuses on others when they express their opinion. Those telling clinton to shut up should have had the courage to tell mumtaz qadri to shut up,should have had the courage to tell the mullahs preaching hate & violence in madrassas to shut up.
    It’s the easiest thing in the world to divert attention from one’s misdeeds instead of working to correct our ownselves.We have a problem in our country with regards to support and sympathy for religious fascists,it’s time we accepted reality and started moving towards the cure,instead of continuing to live in denial about the problem within our society.

    @Pollack ‘Because Pakistan is not the equal of USA’
    Maybe you think that because of your imperialistic mindset , majority of Pakistanis still have ‘ghairat’ and we will not accept being treated likes slaves. Yes a few Pakistanis have an inferiority complex but not most.

    Do you treat the beggars on the street who come up to your car as your equal? Let’s face it — while all men are created equal, they don’t live or die equally. Our achievements count for our worth. Thus far, Pakistan hasn’t really achieved anything, so we are not equal to the US or India or China or even Iran.

    Exactly! The American operation took place to fool the world into believing OBL was caught. Americans were in Abbottabad and lost a helicopter you think that qualifies as evidence? Why has the US constantly and non-stop changed its story on every single part of the whole operation? Why has it been able to produce only a single photoshopped picture of bin Laden? Why do the US’ many versions of that event conflict completely with eyewitness accounts? Why were some of those SEALS participating in the operation later killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan as part of a cover-up? Why is there only ONE picture of America leaders watching the event? There is absolutely ZERO evidence Osama was in Pakistan yet here you are trying to prove it by the presence of American troops and a downed helicopter. Who’s the amusing one here now?

    Much the best,excellent and very impressive statement given by Hilary Clinton only to please and rejoice the Indian leaders only but based on falsehood,fabrication,embellishment and hypocrisy so that Hilary Clinton could convince and coerce the Indian leaders not to import oil form Iran and like Pakistan India has to depend/rely on USA but Mrs. Hilary Clinton here on your this stance you are making the biggest committed mistake and keep it in your mind firmly and strongly that Indian leaders shall never do so because Indian economy is much more stronger and stable than Pakistan and Indian foreign exchange reserves are much higher than Pakistan.

    yes clinton should shut up because americans are known to be backstabbers and opportunist be it with pakistan or with India. but the anger shown by pakistanis is somewhat frustration of their own on their failing country. pakistan failed in every quarter its just like a dying person on drip(aid).

    Do some people actually believe that bin Laden was “found” and “killed” in Pakistan??? What evidence do they have that a normal sane person doesn’t? It’s such a shame to see Pakistanis who have been completely brainwashed by American propaganda. If this were the court of law, how in the world would you people defend your stand? “Oh it’s true because CNN said it that’s why”.

    Wow…last time I checked when you wanted to accuse somebody of something, you had to provide evidence (you know pictures and/or video). If you’re going to just accuse people of something, good luck trying to get support.

    The Americans lost whatever little trust they had when the whole WMD fiasco came to light.

    Shame on those “Pakistanis” who vomit American propaganda (ET you’re no better either, there were much better Tweets posted and you chose the most ridiculous and childish ones of them all).

    Keep up your craptacular work, most people are fed up with ET as they are with most paid journalists in Pakistan to be Washington’s mouthpiece.

    Pakistanis are not stupid…the sooner your realize this the better.

    @Proof of Death: You’re a fool – the current leading establishment of the United States could careless about the debt the country has gone into – they care about there own personal wealth and Rumsfeld and Bush have made a fortune off these wars. It’s called the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX you incompetent CNN watching fool. Learn something instead of spending your miserable life defending a tyrannical country.

    The US has been in debt since they day they formed the Federal Reserve Bank. For every $1 made, interest is put on it. Ergo, America is a slave to the Federal Reserve Bank.

    Who owns the FRB? Bankers. Who influences the FRB? Big multinational companies. What do they gain from attacking countries like Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq? Oh I don’t know lets see…private military contractors alone are a MULTIBILLION DOLLAR business, just ask Donald Rumsfeld. Afterall his “former” company Halliburton is making a fortune off the blood of innocent Afghans and Iraqis.

    That being said, this is a country that cocked up plans to crash commercial planes with AMERICANS on board into the Gulf of Mexico to blame Cuba in an attempt to attack it. Since you’re too much of an clown to read history, I’ll give you a hint (Operation Northwoods).

    This is also the very same country that knew that “bin Laden” (aka Tim Osman – that’s his CIA name) was planning to attack the US on 9/11 yet did nothing.

    So do you really think they care about a random helicopter? If America attacks Pakistan they’ll make millions if not billions but they’re not stupid.

    It’s amazing how blind some people are…

    If u think muslims are just saying this stuff just to protect themselves then how wrong are u? Ask urselfves this question why are so many others, non-muslims, americans now realising the truth and taking a stand. Theyre not muslim. They have nothing to gain in any of this. Theyre not defending their OWN people. So many european non muslim demolition experts and analysts have said how they think 9-11 was staged. There was a recent poll in US and if I recall over 60% said they didnt want US to go for war on terror. Why are so many americans not believeing their own goverment? Its because they are not muslim but are humanists who dont like being lied to and do not want to associate themselves with these lies and this so called war on terror.
    So many people are standing against their own goverment now despite the fact that they know theyre being so heavily monitored but are still ready to stand up against injustice!

    Brother do you think the army is stupid enough to acquiesce to what americans say and not confirm it. Their silence does not necessarily mean they have not made their homework. US deliberately has left void in the confirmation, to wrong at a later stage those who question it and give credence to the existence of conspiracy theorists. And still to believe it another good reason is the impartial judicial commission which too hasn’t questioned it vividly.


  • May 15, 2012 - 6:03PM

    the proof of OBL’s death was not given as a viedo and pictures as US and entire world knows that those videos would be used as most important wepon for brain washing of pakistanis by showing them pictures/ videos again and again and a mazzar would be created where every terrorist from pak would go and aim kill entire world and make OBL as icon for all muslims(?) of the world to rage war on entire world.
    Pakistanis knows this very much?donn’t they?Recommend
