The Pakistan branch of the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

I was shocked to read about this. Why does Karachi have an airport?

Sarcastic posts aside, despite the loss of life, the response of the Guards/Military in this particular case was apparently superb for planned suicide mission on a major facility. None of the Taliban's aims were met - unless a disruption to air traffic was a "primary" goal.

I never knew about the shoes angle. Too bad they let all of us know about it. Could have been one of those things that allowed a reaction.

This violence is deplorable. When are the Pakistanis going to join the civilized world by adopting common sense gun measures?

Oh those wacky Taliban. They are really no threat. I know because the Administration said so.

Well, at least it wasn't as serious as when the Taliban attacked the Navy base in Karachi and blew up up a bunch of ships and stuff.

First... where has Obama ever said that "The Taliban are really no threat".

Second...That is as about as ignorant as saying that guns are not a threat because the NRA said so.

must have been in between him dropping a drone bomb on a bunch of militants and capturing bin laden.

The heck with zombies... look up Mozambique Drill. That was a real world solution to an actual problem.

You have NO memory at all. GM is alive and OSB is dead. The war on terror is over.

I don't think anyone said the war on terror was over, and OBL was not Taliban.

Actually Donner it's been widely reported that each Seal member unloaded on the bin laden body which kept any photos of his death from being leaked. I'm not complaining mind you just thought it was interesting that each team member took their turn depositing some lead into the old b_____.

The "Global War on Terror" is over, President Barack Obama announced Thursday, saying the military and intelligence agencies will not wage war against a tactic but will instead focus on a specific group of networks determined to destroy the U.S.

red, Having trouble sitting down with that quote shoved up yours?

#24 | Posted by Sniper at 2014-06-10 05:17 PM | Reply | Flag:

Doesn't mean the war is over. Using an improper noun as an enemy was stupid in the first place.

#25 | Posted by REDIAL at 2014-06-10 06:12 PM | Reply | Flag:

It's wrong to judge the Taliban because they look "different".

Furthermore, just because someone thinks someone else smells like feces,
is not a viable reason to be critical of alleged lack of grooming habits.
