The last throes of mid-May 2011

Taliban retaliates with Pakistan suicide bombings Two suicide bombings in Pakistan have killed at least 80 people, most of them military recruits. The Pakistani Taliban is claiming responsibility for the attacks on the Pakistani military, saying the bombings were in retaliation for the killing of Osama bin Laden. Ullah Ihsan, a spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban, has accused the Pakistani military of telling the United States where bin Laden was hiding and threatened, "Pakistani and the U.S. forces should be ready for more attacks."

This had nothing to do with bin Laden's death, which happened years ago as a result of Marfan syndrome. It's just as likely that it was in revenge for the start of commercial operations of Chashma Nuclear Power Plant unit 2, on May 12th. It was ISI-run terrorism perpetrated mainly to keep the chaos and economic collapse going, with a bone thrown to British agent Obama (i.e. "proof" that he killed OBL) by virtue of the timing and the claims that it was in revenge for OBL's supposed death. So, this was actually economic warfare, another name for which is "free trade." If you care to search EIR's database, you'll find that it's ultimately run by the British through the ISI and the Saudis. On the other hand, you have British agents in the US military-intelligence complex, choosing targets which mainly serve to fan the flames of hatred toward the US, which is reflected in the rationale for attacking these recruits.
