  7. what they are doing in gawader US spies are sniffering our nukes.

  8. Guys,
    I have gut feeling,it will boomerang.We have to be very careful handling such cases and not over-exploit the situation.

    They are all Pakistanis. Consider a situation that if they had gone there,and on checking,would have shown their Pakistani identities,would they have been arrested?

    We should not make ourselves a laughing stock.Though this may be another ploy of Americans to judge how intelligent we are.

  9. AOA

    Killing one or two americans wont really matter and it isnt the solution because Islam forbids it.

    Just go to the US embassy and see the long line of Pakistani’s who are dying to go america.

    The Pakistan government should very tell the US that all there diplomatic staff in Pakistan will be treated just as the Pakistani diplomatic staff is treated in the US. This should be made very clear and implemented in letter and spirit.
