Pakistan's young heroes
These brave soldiers are pride of nation!!!
"Many brave men of the Pakistan army are falling in the line of duty. Some will be recognized, others will go into history as unsung heroes. Let's not forget them and keep their spirit alive. This is the tale of a young officer, a lieutenant, with less than six months of service, who went beyond the call of duty. After receiving an SOS call from one of the patrols, which had come under ambush laid by the militants, the commanding officer ordered to immediately dispatch a party to beat back the militants and evacuate the casualties. The lieutenant volunteered himself for the task. He was not allowed as probably he was considered too young and inexperienced. The boy felt dejected but was overwhelmed with his commitment to the country. When the party was leaving, he quietly sneaked into the vehicle, taking advantage of the darkness. When the party reached the ambush site and was dismounting, the captain leading the party noticed him. He asked him why he had come. The lieutenant replied: "Sir, I have attended anti-terrorist training and know how to tackle them. Now it's time to use those skills". Later the party successfully repulsed the militants. This officer got three bullet injuries and is now convalescing in a hospital -- and looking forward to go into action again."
2. So we are ready for a war
We have the courage...we have the power to fight against these powers of evil.
3. Sindh’s attitude towards IDP’s
They are creating differences, instability and anger within the state. Political authority should take steps to eliminate these evil elements from the land of pure because IDP’s have the same rights which these people have.
4. US: Military’s Crisis Deepens.
"The Army’s reported number of active-duty soldier suicides has climbed every year of the Afghanistan and Iraq occupations. In January, the suicide rate surpassed the combat death toll. So far this year, the Army lists 64 confirmed or suspected cases in which troops have taken their own lives. According to a May 28 Associated Press report, Fort Campbell’s 4th Brigade has just returned from a 15-month tour in Afghanistan. Such deployments have inflicted deep psychological trauma on troops and strain on military families. Head chaplain Col. Ken Brown commented to the AP, “We’ve been at war at this installation for seven years.... I think that has a cumulative effect across the force.”
5. China Is Now in Firm Control of U.S. Debt Market
"It is hilarious listening to the propagandists try to "spin" the events in bond and currency markets to make it sound like the U.S. government is still operating from a position of strength."
