Pakistan gave the US 15 days to leave the Shamsi airfield. It also announced that NATO supply routes into Afghanistan will be shut down. The move comes after NATO troops killed at least 26 Pakistani soldiers in two separate air strikes in Pakistan. The Shamsi airbase is used by the CIA to carry out secret operations in the Pakistani desert.

Official sources confirmed the suspension of supplies, adding that all containers were stopped at the Takhta Baig checkpost in Jamrud tehsil of Khyber Agency.
“We have suspended the supply and will not let even a single container move ahead”, the official added. ”Supply trucks are being sent back to Peshawar.” Takhta Baig is the first checkpost followed by four more check-posts in the tribal areas and is the shortest possible route to Afghanistan

JHELUM: Paratroopers hurtling head first out of planes, attack helicopters strafing a terror training centre and shacks blown to bits were this week’s latest embodiment of China-Pakistan friendship.
The war games conducted by 540 Chinese and Pakistani soldiers running around scrubland —the fourth joint exercises since 2006 —were ostensibly a chance for China to benefit from Pakistan’s counter-terrorism experience.
There was disappointment that fighter jets were unable to carry out a bombing raid, with visibility apparently poor, but the exercises were declared a success in terms of deepening friendship and improving military cooperation.
But behind the pomp rolled out for the Chinese, complete with slap-up marquee lunch and bags of presents, the relationship is as transactional as any other, as China competes with Pakistan’s arch-rival India for Asian dominance.
And it is far from easy to decipher. “They operate silently so as not to make any statements in public apart from cliches. So one doesn’t know what’s happening,” said retired Pakistani general Talat Masood.
China is Pakistan’s main arms supplier, while Beijing has built two nuclear power plants in Pakistan and is contracted to construct two more reactors.
But the alliance has been knocked by Chinese accusations that the separatist East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), which wants an independent homeland for Xinjiang’s Muslim Uighurs, is training “terrorists” in Pakistani camps.
Those accusations mirror long-standing concerns from the United States that Taliban and al Qaeda bases are funnelling recruits to fight in Afghanistan and hatch terror plots against the West.
During the exercises outside Jhelum, 85 kilometres (50 miles) southeast of Islamabad, generals watched troops attack, clear and destroy a mocked-up training camp, while smoking and sipping cups of tea under a giant tent to keep off winter rays.
Chinese deputy chief of staff Hou Shusen and Pakistan’s army chief Ashfaq Kayani sat together in the front row, guests of honour incapable of talking to each other without the help of an interpreter.
“We have done our utmost to eliminate this threat of ETIM and other extremists for China because we consider honestly that China’s security is very dear to Pakistan,” Kayani told a news conference after the war games.
He said that Pakistan had provided intelligence during the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2010 Shanghai Expo, and reiterated demands for closer military cooperation and larger imports of military hardware from China.
Beijing was instrumental in getting the United Nations and United States to blacklist ETIM as a terrorist organisation in 2002, but experts have questioned how much of a threat such a small group of people really poses.
Pakistani analysts believe members number no more than hundreds and are fairly dispersed in the remote mountains on the Pakistan-China border.
Despite that issue, if the language used to describe Pakistan’s febrile relationship with the United States is that of an unhappy couple wishing but unable to divorce, then the hyperbole used to describe China is that of an ecstatic lover.
“Higher than mountains” and “sweeter than honey” were phrases used by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani when Chinese Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu came to town in September, at a time when relations with the US were at their most difficult in years.
The top US military officer, Admiral Mike Mullen, had just accused Pakistan of colluding with Afghan militants in besieging the US embassy in Kabul as ties plummeted further after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
But independent China analyst Michael Dillon says that without any real ideological links, China’s relationship with Pakistan is primarily strategic, designed to offset its rivalry with India.
“There is a feeling that cooperation with Pakistan on counter-terrorism might be in China’s interests,” he told AFP.
“They’ve got economic domination over Southeast Asia. But South Asia is another matter. The big rival is India. If they can get close diplomatically to Pakistan then it can balance the power of India in the subcontinent,” he said.
Neither can China present an alternative to the US alliance.
But Kayani described China as “very important” to regional stability, perhaps best seen against a backdrop of Pakistan’s own rivalry with India.
“It’s not a zero-sum game. You further strengthen your relations with China, then you increase your importance. You use this as a leverage to improve your relationship with the US,” said Masood.
اے جذبہ دل گر ميں چاہوں ہر چيز مقابل آجائے
منزل کے لئے دو گام چلوں اور سامنے منزل آجائے
اے دل کي خلش چل يوں ہي سہي چلتا تو ہوں ان کي محفل ميں
اس وقت مجھے چونکا دينا جب رنگ پہ محفل آجائے
اے رہبر کامل چل ديکھو، تيار تو ہوں پر يار رہے
اس وقت مجھے بھٹکا دينا جب سامنے منزل آجائے
ہاں ياد مجھے تم کر لينا آواز مجھے تم دے لينا
اس راہ محبت ميں کوئي درپيش جو مشکل آجائے
اب کيوں ڈھونڈوں وہ چشم کرم ہونے دے ستم بالائے ستم
ميں چاہتا ہوں اے جذبہ غم مشکل پہ مشکل آجائے
They have given their time
They have given their all
For Pakistan that said we made them fall.
Some say this is for power,
Some same this is for the fame.
We need to stop placing any and all the blames.
We have a country that has needs to,
Many lost their lives, and many lost their limbs.
Some lost their minds, and others lost their will.
Some don’t have homes, some don’t have food.
But this is our Pakistan who’s out to do good.
Give to your own, and then think of the world.
Lets fix our backyards before we fix theirs.
Our Pakistan is rich, with many things indeed.
But lets give aid to our people in the time of their needs.
So when you see a Soldier or someone in Uniform,
Please salute or shake their hand, and say JOB WELL DONE.
