Revenge for bin Laden in Pakistan: 80 dead

Striking at Pakistan doesn't make much sense until you realize that the terrorists don't believe President Zardari when he says that he knew nothing about the Abbottobad raid in advance.

The terrorists also want to keep anger at America in Pakistan white hot, hoping that the government will be forced into some kind of break with Washington.

Regardless, the terrorists struck a paramilitary academy with a large loss of life.

Bin Laden's followers have vowed revenge for his death and the Pakistani Taliban said the Friday attack by two suicide bombers on a paramilitary academy in the northwestern town of Charsadda was their first taste of vengeance."There will be more," militant spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said by telephone from an undisclosed location.

The attackers struck as the recruits were going on leave and 65 of them were among the 80 dead. Pools of blood strewn with soldiers caps and shoes lay on the road outside the academy as the wounded, looking dazed with parts of their clothes ripped away by shrapnel, were loaded into trucks.

Shahid Ali, 28, was on his way to his shop when the bombs went off. He tried to help survivors. "A young boy was lying near a wrecked van asked me to take him to hospital. I got help and we got him into a vehicle," Ali said.

Hours after the bombing, a U.S. drone aircraft fired missiles at a vehicle in the North Waziristan region on the Afghan border, killing five militants, Pakistani security officials said.

Are you surprised that America hasn't been targeted yet? I thought some lone wolf would have taken action in this country by now. Either we are very lucky or our law enforcement is very good. While probably a combination of both, which concept do you think dominates?
