Pakistan Vows to Attack Any Future US Raid

By Jim Meyers

“Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has warned the United States against further incursions into his country following the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, saying that future strikes would be met with “full force.”

“Pakistan reserves the right to retaliate with full force. No one should underestimate the resolve and capability of our nation and armed forces to defend our sacred homeland.”

Gilani also warned against any attacks on Pakistan’s “strategic assets,” a term the government uses in reference to the nation’s nuclear weapons, according to the Arab network Al-Jazeera.

Pakistan scrambled jet fighters and sent forces to bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad as soon as they were aware of the raid, but they did not arrive in time to interdict American forces, Gilani said.”
