Weird things going on in Pakistan
Dozens of militants armed with guns and gas bombs? Take a look at some of these vehicles and think about all of the pictures of toasted vehicles that you have seen in the Middle East bombings that have been going on in recent years.
There has been the same phenomena going on in Gaza too. I can only imagine what this guy in the picture is thinking, but it sure don't look like a gasoline fire.
Attack Destroys Six Nato Tankers Near Peshawar
PESHAWAR: Suspected Taliban militants planted a bomb near Peshawar that destroyed six tankers supplying fuel to Nato troops in Afghanistan, officials said on Friday.
Around 35 tankers were parked overnight in the Chamkani area, outside Peshawar, when militants placed a bomb under one of the vehicles loaded with diesel, petrol and aviation fuel, police official Asmatullah Khan told AFP.
The blast triggered a fire which spread and engulfed six tankers, he said, adding that the blaze was only brought under control by Pakistan air force vehicles after local fire-fighters failed to tame the flames.
‘They used a special chemical to extinguish the fire,’ a security official said on condition of anonymity. The oil tankers, contracted to supply Nato forces, had been parked in an unauthorised area, the official said.
Militants have carried out a series of strikes against supplies for US and Nato-led foreign forces fighting against a Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan.
Rumsfeld and Gen. Myers asked about energy beam weapons
There is also some weird happenings on Youtube. This video was working the other day, but now seems to be getting zapped by something. I checked three more videos of the same thing, and they all had the hissing sound, making the audio impossible to hear. Fortunately I found a non Youtube version and it is presently working.
