US Vice-President Dick Cheney has conveyed the Bush administration`s message to Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf that the opponents of the possible invasion of Iran will no longer be treated as "allies".

Mr Cheney, who air dashed Islamabad on Monday last , on a one-day surprise visit held a two-hour-long meeting with General Musharraf and expressed his country`s concern over a peace agreement with the tribesmen in North Waziristan. Cheney claimed that cross-border infiltration had increased after the agreement.

Sources privy to Presidential House said that Mr Cheney also discussed a joint strategy to counter the purported Taliban spring operation in war-hacked Afghanistan during the meeting.

According to sources, Mr Cheney also brought the deputy director of CIA, who presented "proofs" to General Musharraf as regards regrouping and training Taliban inside Pakistan.

The sources quoted Mr Cheney as saying " Even without Pakistan`s support, the US forces are capable of taking military action against Iran through Afghanistan, Central Asia, and Gulf".

Here are some questions

1. Is an American invasion of Iran imminent?
2. What will be the choice for Pakistan in case of attack on Iran?
3. Should Pakistan provide logistic support to America for attacking Iran as it did in case of Afghanistan?
4. Will there be any internal reaction in case of Pakistan`s support to US adventure?
5. Do you agree with Musharraf`s contention that the whole world will have to face the consequences of attack on Iran?

ALLAH BLESS THE PEACE LOVING PEOPLE ON THE PLANET EARTH AND ALLAH SAVE PAKISTAN AND ALL ISLAMIC WORLD WHICH IS NOW CORNERED WITH MULTIPLE INTRIGUES, BOTH INSIDE AND OUT.

Attack on Iran

Very wisely put by Crom from Republic of Ireland that Bush is acting like a kid and not as a President of United States of America. Attacking Iran is out of question. Attacking N. Korea is out of question. If US thinks they can attack Pakistan that is just a dream and all bullshit. No way US would dare to attack a country having its forces as big as US and very well trained. Pakistan will suck in US as world saw when USSR was dismantled and a credit must be given to Pakistani armies who did it not US forces as they were not involved in that war. Everyone has a right to express his/her opinion. I do appreciate all the writers who do not side anyone but write the facts. President Musharraf knows well what Cheney is talking about. They have no time to think about being too much involved in Afghanistan and Iraq. US will think thrice to attack Pakistan a Nuclear Power with lot of power at their disposal. Its too early to say what Cheney meant from his speech. Pakistan is less worried about speeches of man who is so much worried and don't know what to say when too much on the plate i.e. Iraq and Afghanistan.US is finding it hard to pull out of Iraq. When price of OIL goes above $200 a barrell then US would be gone deeper and way out no chance. Economy of US is on down turn and people seems to be worried already and any more trouble American public would not like much. Its just war of words what Cheney said the other day.

Qazi is an agent of Psywar against Islam and muslims.

ANwar Mahmood,YOu should not give up writing.YOu should write politely,firmly and based on reasoning and logic.
There are many writers who use forum under fake names and are not even Pakistanis e.g.Qazi,Ayasha etc.They are agents of psy war on Islam and Pakistan.They will support always the representative of sell out segment naming COL.JAFRI because military works as tool of American foreign policy.THese people get salary from the poor nations taxes but are loyal and accountable to USA.Correct word for them is male prostitutes.
About Cheneys threat.Well look at history of US,since creation,there is nothing but war,nothing but shedding blood.First it was on local Indians,then on African slaves then in SOuth America and Africa and now on Muslim countries.US will never change.,just like a heina/wolf will never start to eat grass.Before war such ultimatums like cheneys are issued and the most coward segment of the society the military is defecating and urinating in pants and find justification to serve there master.What masters,but they get salaries from the taxes from the nations work.Sure so they are called male prostitutes.
