    NOW, UK JOINS WITH USA....

    Source: Jang, Jan 30
    LONDON: Pakistan's military authorities are coming under intense international pressure, led by the US and UK, to crack down on Islamic militant groups operating from within the country or face a tough response from the "powerful" countries.

    Reliable Pakistani sources told The News on Friday that Britain had signalled "a virtually identical position to the United States" during the recent visit of the British Chief of General Staff, General Sir Charles Guthrie. Sir Charles conveyed a strong-worded letter from British Prime Minister Tony Blair to Chief Executive Gen Pervaiz Musharraf urging Pakistan to curb Islamic militants. (End of Quote from Jang)

    It's my guess that in coming days, we'll hear a lot of sabre-rattling by the various militant groups that their jihad against India, the West, etc. are justified according to "their interpretations" of the Quran.
