U.S. military halts cargo shipments out of Afghanistan

The U.S. military, facing continuing protests over drone strikes, has halted military cargo shipments from Afghanistan, citing a potential risk to drivers and contractors along the route once it enters Pakistan.

"We are aware protests have affected one of the primary commercial transit routes between Pakistan and Afghanistan. We have voluntarily halted U.S. shipments," Defense Department spokesman Mark Wright said.

    Pakistan has to get better control of their country . I think it's ridiculous that they still have tribal regions of the country .

      Didn't Bush's envoy Richard Armitage already threaten to do precisely that back in 2001, Phunnie boy? He did. Besides, Barack Obama and his right-wing henchmen are being paid to hate Muslims, but what's your excuse? Tell me, please.

      Pakistan will take care of that on their own. Just who controls their nuclear weapons and what are their interests?

    China has a minumum of 68,000 Chinese Nationals in California right now and they are all actively Anti-American.

      68,000 Chinese in California hate us? Did you count them? Hell, the Tea Party can do better than that! If they just register to vote they can hate whoever they please!

    A people group who bombs funeral processions really will never be safe for any kind of travel, ever. And its not the funeral of Americans but the opposite flavor of Muslimism. Russia could not fix Afghan banana-stand. Major General Vycheslav Borisov the general over Russia's invasion force said it was a worthless wasteland that had one real solution. He then came up with a nuclear option that the party leaders never approved. Not to be stopped, he came up with a nuclear option for the rest of the world's problems. Then he came up with an attack plan for the USA. Then he accepted Christ and became a preacher on the side. Then he visited the USA and came to my church, complete in his Russian general uniform. then he returned to Russia to where he still is an active general.

    No surprise here. I already figured that they'd pull something like this in order to keep us in Afghanistan and thus prolong the obscene occupation. What did surprise me is that the Pakistanis still haven't opened up their land routes to NATO shipping as they are bribed to do.

      Negative George Patton! I support the continued occupation of Afghanistan and the end to the use of illicit, mind altering drugs.

        I only agree with you 50% on your post above, Timothy. While I too support the end of illicit mind altering drugs, I still oppose the obscene occupation of Afghanistan. Besides, would you like it if China suddenly sent 68,000 troops to California? I bet not!
