The Work Of The Generals.

Dozens dead this morning in Kabul and Mazar-i Sharif. Lashkar-e-Jhanghvi claims responsibility.

NYT: Lashkar-e-Jhanghvi is a Punjabi group with a long history of cooperation with Pakistani’s intelligence service, as well as close ties to Al Qaeda and the Taliban. It is made up of Sunni extremists who believe in the extermination of Shiites, and has helped drive the rampant sectarian violence between Shiite and Sunni groups in Pakistan.

Stating the obvious: "ISI-backed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi/Sipah-e-Sahaba terrorists exact revenge on Afghan Shias - The attacks on Afghanistan’s Shia Muslims mourning Imam Hussain highlight the terrifying vision of Pakistan’s foreign policy elite who favour a return to Taliban rule in Afghanistan, as per the recommendations of the USIP-Jinnah Institute report."

Here's LeJ's handiwork in Quetta last year: Dozens dead in suicide bomb attack.

We already know which side the "U.S. Institute for Peace" is on. But as I said last week, it's long past time for the NATO countries to put the question directly to President Barack Obama: Whose side are you on?

UPDATE: Pakistan's interior minister, the corrupt thug and business tycoon Rehman Malik, has expressed gratitude to the Taliban for not slaughtering Pakistani Shias during this year's Muharram observances, and the gruesome American congressman Dennis Kucinich advises that America should slobber on the Pakistani generals' boots. Referring to the November 26 shootout on the Mohmand-Kunar frontier that left 24 Pakistani soldiers dead, Kucinich said: “We need to apologise to the people of Pakistan."

Some media outlets - The Guardian, Voice of America and the German DPA wire service - are saying an even-more-violent splinter of LeJ - Lashkar-e-Jhangvi al Almi - is claiming to be behind the attacks.

Greeeeeeeeeeat - someone CRAZIER than LeJ that's also associated with AQ. Just what the mix of ethnic and religious bits that make up the Afghan stewpot needs...
