Pakistan threatens sanctions against U.S. over bin Laden raid

Pakistan's parliament threatened Saturday to cut off access to a facility used by NATO forces to ferry troops into Afghanistan, signaling a growing rift that began when U.S. commandos killed Osama bin Laden during a raid on a Pakistani compound.

A resolution adopted during a joint session of parliament condemned the U.S. action. It also called for a review of its working agreement with the U.S., demanded an independent investigation and ordered the immediate end of drone attacks along its border region.

Failure to end unilateral U.S. raids and drone attacks will force Pakistan to "to consider taking necessary steps, including withdrawal of (the) transit facility" used by the NATO's International Security Assistance Force, according to the resolution.

U.S. lawmakers have questioned how the world's most wanted terrorist managed to live in plain sight for years in Pakistan - near the country's elite military academy - without being detected.

    Bobcat2u , don't feel too bad, I put up over 22 posts yesterday on several of the political blogs and every one of the posts was censored. None of the posts had anything vulgar or derogatory to anyone while several other people were allowed to post vile comments about their personal life that had nothing to do with the topic at all.

      I know whitleyfan810 . It gets pretty irritating, when all you are trying to do is add your thoughts to the conversation . But I guess it doesn't matter if you have intelligible to say. I guess people who have decency about them don't matter in these areas.

    I doubt he is a BIG one or able one. Nerds are too caught up with their work to be able to perform in the bedroom.

    True I did the sketch above. I will not speak of the comments spoken of me about the bedroom. I will not comment. Nor will I deny those attacks. I am undergoing s@xx therapy.

    You do realize, all of you, by complaining about all the trolls and all the inane banter, that you are doing the same thing as those you're complaining about?

    @ Linari

    This is good job done.
    As an American I feel safer in the knowledge that our Law Enforcement is doing their best to protect us.
    If you talk to FBI , they will tell you that their job is greatly aided by muslims on the look out for such people and working with them to root them out from the community.
