Pakistan militants threaten more bombs

with 2 comments

A militant group that claimed to be behind the deadly Marriott Hotel bombing in Pakistan’s capital threatened more attacks Wednesday, warning again that Pakistanis should stop cooperating with the United States.

In a cell phone message to reporters, the little known group calling itself “Fedayeen al-Islam” — “Islam commandos” — referred to the owner of the Marriott by name.

“All those who will facilitate Americans and NATO crusaders like (owner Sadruddin) Haswani, they will keep on receiving the blows,” said the message, which was in English.

It was impossible to verify the identity of the group or say whether it was in a position to make good on the threat. Pakistani officials were not immediately available for comment.

Whatever the case, it is for the first time that the two sides have exchanged fire. This is, considering the fact that they are allies, significant. It is a sign that the situation at the border could very well escalate; unless the U.S. gives in. It is unlikely that Pakistan will give in, because it cannot do so; President Asif Ali Zardari has to present himself as a strong, determined leader, willing to say ‘no’ to the United States. If he does not, he may very well be ousted sooner rather than later.
