Washington loses patience with Pakistan's Taliban Haven

The Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, threatened today to Pakistan and claimed that America is losing patience with Islamabad by fighters hostile to Washington to take refuge on the borders of that country. It is extremely important that Pakistan to take some action to prevent this type of safe haven for insurgents who swarm boundaries between Afghanistan, Panetta said on a visit to Kabul, said in a statement from the Pentagon. The high military leader also wielded the alleged right to hold the troops U.S. to defend against attacks from Pakistan by militants of the Al Qaeda and extremist groups Haqqani.

A recent bombing in a tribal area of Pakistan that he is presumed under the Al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi, became the U.S. drone attack number 21 this year. At least six U.S. missiles were launched against suspected militant camp in Mir Ali town of Waziristan region. Pakistani lawmakers demanded the withdrawal of the drones because they are killing dozens of civilians. Last November a conservative senator reminded Pakistan "the extent of U.S. financial support," while political tensions between Islamabad and Washington kept the red alive after a NATO bombing. Republican Congressman Jon Kyl said that "they (the Pakistanis) need to understand that our monetary support will always depend on their level of cooperation" with the U.S. Army.

We deploy a lot of diplomacy, but it must be pressure diplomacy, tough diplomacy, said the congressman from Arizona in an interview with Fox News.official delegates protested to Washington and Islamabad are wondering why NATO forces remained an attack unprovoked two hours with helicopters and fighter bombers against Pakistani positions known. The South Asian nation's government confirmed that two dozen soldiers were massacred and as a result, relations with the United States will never be the same again. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani told CNN that Pakistan "is reassessing its ties" with the administration of President Barack Obama. Gilani said that the incident which caused the deaths of 24 soldiers and the operation to capture Osama bin Laden were clear violations of national sovereignty. We want the U.S. to maintain a relationship of respect, he emphasized.
