"Crocodile Tears" In Pakistan.

U.S troops came under fire at the Pakistani border, by Afghan insurgents.

U.S. troops fired back.

A handful of Pakistani soldiers died in the exchange.

Pakistan is now whining like a kid who dropped his ice-cream at the county fair.

See the article at Reuters.

The question I have is this: what were Pakistani troops doing in the midst of Afghan insurgents? It's obvious from this that we can assume what everyone has known all along. Pakistan has always turned a blind eye, and often given aid, to Afghan terrorists. Pakistan is not a real ally of the United States.

Pakistan needs to understand that if they are not for us, they are against us. They cannot realistically work both sides of the fence for long. Terrorists the world over need to understand that if they shoot at U.S. troops, they shall reap the whirlwind.

In a separate incident, Pakistani militants killed a woman and dumped her body outside a small town, with a note attached to the body. The note accused the woman of helping the U.S. and said that anyone else who did so would receive the same fate. So what does that tell you? Draw your own conclusions.
