This sign was probably in the lobby of the Pearl Continental Hotel in Peshawar which was bombed today June 9 2009 with the loss of many innocent lives. I stayed there often during my tour in Pakistan as an aid worker, 1987-1990. It is tragically ironic that the Taliban, created by the Pakistani secret services to fight the Soviets next door in Afghanistan in the eighties, should now be turning on their creators.
Foolmonty, yes it is the sign in the Pearl Continental Hotel.
Taliban has not been created to fight Soviets.
The movement was born long after Soviet withdrawal, in 1994 in Pakistani madrassas with a little help from ISI with a hope of subjugating Afghanistan by making it even more backward and medieval than Pakistan itself.
Well, what goes around...
You're right powermeerkat -:)
first of all i think you most of are seniors (foolmontly, powermeerkat etc.) we must under stand effort of "ZEREGA" he upload fatastic gallery, and you guys should be shamed for passing such comments.
i will not say a single word on your comments, but improve your knowledge they all were spourted and funded by american and westren countires then and now.
but dont discus here
What the pic in question has to do with a fact that Osama bin Laden was found (and killed) 1000 meters from the Pakistan's top military academy?
And that ISI has been tacitly supporting both al-Qaeda and Taliban for decades?
[It's still an interesting and a symptomatic pic]
more interesting is this,America can,t approch to Osama over more than 10 yeras with highly modren technology....? but according to American media then find out (detect) him 2 year before but why and for what they were waiting?
according to you, if Osama has support from ISI, it felt great stupidnes by those agencies, if they dont know how to work...
1.) they kept him in secured big compound...? (whcih easyly detect and point out..?)
2.) secondly it feel more stupidness that they kept a Arabic spoken person with Osama. (that he can easly detect buy Foregion Agencies)?
3.) after know that there is Amercan CIA camp, they remain keep Osama there, that they easly find out him.?
4.) if we are capable within our sources, does we allow others they attack on our GHQ, on Mehran Base, our militry person and local killed by them, ... can you country do this, can you people allow all in your coutries.?
Sorry, I don't speak Urdu.
Could you repeat it in English?
