Panetta: U.S. running out of patience with Pakistan

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned Thursday that the United States was "reaching the limits of our patience" with Pakistan over militants that attack U.S. forces in neighboring Afghanistan from havens within its borders.

"It's extremely important that Pakistan take action to prevent this kind of safe haven," he said during an unannounced visit to Kabul, and that militants cannot use the country as a "safety net" from which to attack U.S. soldiers.

"We have made that very, very clear time and time again, and we will continue to do that," he said.

    Chinese soldier slapped Indian General Rajesh Khosla on his face and kicked him. Bulldozed the trench he was hiding in. Told him not to come to the border again. Indian general was stripped of his pants and sent to india in his underwear. These indians are cowards. We dont need nukes to fight them. just kick them.

    We cannot thank Pakistan enough for proividing a home to over 4 million Afghans refugees since 1980. No other country even gave them a glass of water and they want to be our friends. As soon as USA retreats from Afghanistan we are going to go back and reestablish another government that is pro Pakistan. our roots go deep together. It is sad to see hindus on our territory who are polluting our lands and leaving behind unexploded bombs, ordinance etc.

I refused to take my family with me. These indians are thankless and will stab you in the back the first chance they get. My camera, computer and sun glasses were stolen from my hotel room (5 star !!!). I was pickpocketed in the cloth bazaar. The food I ate at a decent restaurant gave me cramps that lasted for days. Apparenlty they served me dog meat instead of kosher lamb. Very bd experience.

    The issue between USA and Pakistan is not one of apology or transit costs or of Haqqanis. The underlying problem is that India is using USA to muscle Pakistan as quid pro quo for USA using India to do janitorial work against China. At the end of the day Pakistan and India cannot coexist peacefully. Ultimately, there will be a nuclear war with India and there will be only one nation left standing which in my view will be Pakistan. Pakistan Zindabad.

    I do not believe that at this point a US apology will be enough for Pakistanis. Also, USA cannot reimburse Pakistan enough for transit costs. At this point USA needs to find an alternate route..period.

      Wonder why USA is obsessed with Pakistan? Why can't they find alternate route and just move on. As far as Haqqanis are concerned it is somewhat similar to mexicans and americans crossing borders several times each day. Have americans declared war on mexico for all the dead americans/mexicans found everyday in the border region????

      It appears to me that Indians are hiding behind American skirts and using Americans as messengers vis a vis Pakistan. As some comments have indicated this is payback for the dirty work that Americans are using India to do for them against Chinese. This is indeed immature, diplomatically and people see through it.

    The apology of USA to Pakistan for the unprovoked massacre of Pakistani soldiers is imminent. As you all will recall, the Afghani and Indian valets assigned to US forces, mischievously and deliberately, conveyed wrong information to them and used them to wrongfully murder these soldiers.

    As far as Pakistan-USA relations are concerned there are none and both countries need to move on in different directions. They have not been able to develop friendship in 60 years. The biggest favor that USA can do for Pakistan is to stop all reimbursements/aid. Pakistan should stand on its feet. With the right leadership this can be achieved in 9 months.

    It is so humorous to see Indian Hindus taking out their frustration on these forums hiding behind our American names. Indians are by nature a timid race and hence able to get along with us. When we say jump they jump high. So we like it and use them to do our dirty work against the Chinese and spy in the neighborhood. And best of all they do it on the cheap. Now, we are fully aware they are financing the terrorists in that area. We look the other way because they are doing janitorial work for us in Afghanistan. We are well aware of the muslimm assacre in Kashmir and again we are tolerating it for the time being till the Indians keep on being our garbage disposers. But they have started getting under our skin as CIA has informed us of Christians being mowed down inplaces like GOA and New Delhi by Hindu extremist groups. We may have to reprogram the drones and reduce these cities to rubble. What is quite evident from the comments by Indians on these forums is that they are not well educated or cultured but rather clumsy and appear to be mostly village bumkins....hicks...if I may. They are obsessed with Pakistan which has emotionally, financially and militarily drained them.

In addition, concerning the military, the Indians proficiency and competence in employement and tactics puts the Pakistanis to shame. If evenly matched in combat (equal # of aircraft), the Pakistani Air Force would get OWNED by the Indian Air Force. Again, "hicks"? Wow you are ignorant, or maybe just blinded by your own bigotry.

        The Aghori or Aghouri is a Hindu cult in India that is considered to have split off from the Kapalika order in the fourteenth century AD. They have cannibalistic rituals. The streets of northern Indian cities are littered with followers of this cult carrying a kapala, which is a cup made from a skull! These bizarre people will eat anything from rotten food to animal faeces. In order to achieve the highest citadel of enlightenment, the Aghori will perform horrendously crude rituals. The finality of their rituals is attained from eating the decaying flesh of a human.

    It's amazing how stupid the people are in this blog. Mostly a bunch of Pakis trying to either blame all their problems on the US or blame all their problems on India. These people seem to be uneducated drones. Pakistan is begging for aid from the US then turning around and harboring MASS MURDERERS inside their borders and they refuse to go after the terrorists in their country. Pathetic bunch of lying cowards they are. The US needs to pull the aid packages and let Pakistan fall apart. Either way i don't think Pakistan will make it very long. Either the Terrorists will take over the Government or the Government will fall on its own and Al Quaeda will take over.... I figure we might as well let them fall, at least if we let them fall we can openly attack Al Quaeda in Pakistan without having to hear the lying cowards cry about drones strikes in their "sovereign territory" where Bin laden called home and Al Quaeda has safe haven.

    So the only way to peace in Afghanistan is dismantling the terrorist network and financing emanating from India, cutting it up into smaller nations along the lines of communist USSR and let smaller and more gentle and economically dynamic states emerge, stopping the genocide in Kashmir of muslim children/women, subjugation of minorities, prosecution of Christians and Muslims. Furthermore the ridiculously large and ineffective Indian army needs to be dismantled and put to use in assisting the poverty stricken masses and not sitting in trenches hiding from Talibans.

    Hopefully LOU Panetta was taken around India and shown the massacre of Christians happening there. Here is a reprint of what the comment sections are indicating.

    New, More Dangerous Hindu Extremist Groups Emerge in India

    Christians concerned as rightwing factions splinter to form militant outfits.
    PUNE, India, October 29 (CDN) — After more than a decade of severe persecution, India’s Christian minority is growing increasingly concerned over the mushrooming of newer and deadlier Hindu extremist groups.

    Gone are the days when Christians had to watch out only for the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council) and its youth wing, Bajrang Dal, which are closely linked with the most influential Hindu extremist umbrella organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). With voter support faltering for the RSS’s political wing, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), moderate and extremist sections within the Hindu nationalist movement are blaming each other, and militant splinter groups have emerged.

    Claiming to be breakaway factions of the RSS, new groups with even more extreme ideology are surfacing. The Abhinav Bharat (Pride of India), the Rashtriya Jagran Manch (National Revival Forum), the Sri Ram Sene (Army of god Rama), the Hindu Dharam Sena (Army for Hindu Religion) and the Sanatan Sanstha (Eternal Organization) have launched numerous violent attacks on Christian and Muslim minorities.

    Coming into this Blog taught me one thing. Pakistanis are a STUPID uneducated group of people. Along with Being Cowards, they lie and try to blame everybody else for their problems. Pakistan is a country full of weaklings. They let a Terrorist Network Operate openly inside their borders and despite putting their hands out to recieve Billions of dollars in aid from the United States, they refuse to fight the terrorists in their borders, AND They Complain when we do it for them. Al Quaeda isn't the only Enemy to the United States. The Pakistanis are too. We should annihilate that country.. their people are liars and thieves.

      Sir, you are nothing more that a pretentious Indian Hindu hiding behind American skirts making such juvenile comments that have no merit. I have found Indian Hindus of being the most meek and cowardly nation on this planet. Now let me just give you one example in a civilized manner. The indians army consists of over 1.2 million sissy soldiers hiding in trenches doing nothing but frozen due fright of talibans. You will be better served addressing the genocide that is ongoing in Indian Occupied Kashmir and hopefully you took Lou Panetta on a tour of your legacy inn massacring millions of innocent women and children.

        Razzle you idiot, I'm an American that happened to serve in the US Army and was deployed to Iraq. You can blame the hindus or whoever else you hate this week for all your problems but for everyone else it's plain to see. Pakistanis are a bunch of cowards that don't even address the Terrorist network inside their own borders. You expect Billions of dollars of aid from the US every year and then turn around and let the enemy find save haven in your country. Bunch of COWARDS.

        The American invasion of Afghanistan brought to the forefront the irrelevance of India as a nation. With a population of over 1.2 billion people there was no value that this nation could bring to the table. Their soldiers (ragtag) 1.2million continue hiding in the trenches scared from Talibans. A few teenage Talibans invaded the country and held it hostage for days on end showing how useless India is. It was embarrasing for the world to observe this humiliation of a nation that was being touted as a regional power. The Talibans brought them down in a few days with some BB guns. It is all over for India. Its demise is in process and should be completed with Afghanistan withdrawal.

If anything Pakistan owes us Billions of dollars that we've paid that piece of crap nation to defend itself from the terrorists IT HARBORS. Pakistan let Osama Bin Laden live just around the corner from one of it's largest military installations, you're working with the enemy not fighting them. Pakistan is full of cowards and whiners and that's why you want more money from us, because you want to blame us for Al Quaeda setting up in your back yard, That's your fault, you shouldn't harbor terrorists in your country if you had any bawls whatsoever you would have kicked them out already... instead you helped them, All the while begging the US for money. You're a bunch of Thieves and traitors. As far as US fighting Russia or China, We would destroy either one, but we don't just randomly start wars you idiot, we are only fighting in Afghanistan because Terrorists from that country launched an attack that killed 3 thousand of our civilians. Now those very same people call Pakistan home and you think we're not going to kill them there, you're stupid.

    US $ 1 Trillion due to terrorism.

    Despite sacrifices, Pakistan was still engaged in 'the war for world peace”.

    No other country has even come close to selflessly sacrificing so much.

Meanwhile to keep the Indian riff raffs on the eastern border contained, it has been sealed, army on red alert to march onto New Delhi (should take 18 hours at most), nukes armed and MIRMS deployed
