Pakistan: NATO choppers breached U.N. rules

Pakistan strongly protested Monday against NATO helicopter incursions into its territory from Afghanistan, calling them "a clear violation and breach" of the United Nations rules for foreign forces in Afghanistan.

NATO helicopters have chased insurgents into Pakistan at least twice in the past few days, the International Security Assistance Force acknowledged Monday.

That is not allowed, Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said in a strongly worded statement.

The United Nations "mandate terminates/finishes at the Afghanistan border. There are no agreed hot pursuit rules," the ministry said.

    Hey USA, maybe if you honored your treaty with the Taliban to allow your trooos to enter afghanistan and hunt down binLaden, whom you hired to fight the Soviets. But noooo, you let binLaden go and began hunting down the Taliban instead.

    I am a very worried mother of a Marine. His unit was sent to Pakistan as part of an emergency relief effort. Sit here and talk smack if you want to. I have a dog in this fight and he, along with the other members of his group, is doing an honorable job.
