Blasts, gunshots as armed militants storm Pakistan's largest airport

Heavy fighting ongoing

At least 5 people have reportedly been killed and an airport emergency declared after heavily armed militants stormed the airport in Karachi, Pakistanís largest city. Twelve militants are thought to be inside and fire is seen rising from the scene.

The militants launched grenades and opened fire as they entered the building. Two of the terrorists have reportedly been killed.

At least three blasts were heard, and an airport emergency has been declared, with flight operations suspended, reported the local Karachi Post.

The five people killed are Airport Security Force (ASF) staff, according to Pakistani news channel Geo.tv

Updates when we get them...

Update by Howie: Taliban get asses kicked then claim responsibility and huge victory, threaten to get themselves killed again.

Its why they call it terrorism, their goal is not to win, just to end up with a bunch of blood spilled. Because that's what butcherous savages do.

Like um shocking.

1 Okay. An airport in a Muslim country has been shut down by Muslims. And that does what? Prevent idiots from other countries to do there?

3 Here's an idea.

Airlines outside the middle east stop flying to the middle east (except Israel).

Companies that make airliners or parts for airliners stop selling parts to any nation in the region (except Israel).

Don't allow airlines from the region (except Israel) to land anywhere else. (Europe, America, Asia, etc)

If they're going to act like savages, then treat them as such.

4 I just don't understand why anyone would wish to go there? There's not future in it. Unless you're a Muslim with a grudge against the modern world.

5 Obama is getting us out of Afghanistan. (maybe). I've always thought we have no business in Afghanistan. And still do. I have one problem. Just because we say the war on terror is over that doesn't mean the terrorists think it's over. I fear that if we aren't fighting the terrorists in Afghanistan we are going to end up fighting them in America. Pulling out of the middle east will mean even more security needed here. The TSA is already a joke. How are they going to be with more pressure placed on them? Is there a solution? The only solution I can see is no more Islamic immigration. Close monitoring of those here already here and deporting any we feel uncomfortable with. No more visas for those from Islamic countries. Stop educating them in American Universities. Tightening the borders?
If we leave Afghanistan the terrorists are going to party and say they drove us out. So they may as well follow us here while they're on a roll.
We would have to OUTLAW ISLAM in AMERICA.

Where have I heard that before?

6 We can fight terrorist in Afghanistan really without keeping a lot of forces there.

We can use some of those cool buttons we have here.

7 You know prescicion guided munitions, they have no air defense we can do as we please when we please.

8 "A LOT" How many is "A LOT". If we reduce our forces by a lot they will overrun them.
If we can control the terrorists sitting on our asses at home why haven't we? They don't seem to fear our drones. More of them now than ever.
Are you talking about something bigger along with the resulting civilian deaths. I don't have a problem killing those wishing to kill me. I just like to wait until they're over 12.
If we get out (I'm for it) we must get completely out. Perhaps after years of suffering at the hands of fanatics the general will have enough. Their problem.

9 I am reminded by the fact that the Iranians never seem to get tired of being controlled by religious fanatics. It' a weird phenom.

10 Rooster: Have you ever heard mne bitch about Dresden?

No?

Well I'm all for payback wien its due.

There's no factories to destroy with the Taliban but if a place gets crisped because its riddled with Taliban. Well so be it.

Because well, the ones that are really young, God accepts the innocent ones or so I'm told.

Probably doing them a favor. You can't fight a war or payback for terrorism if you're walking on eggshells.

11 Kill em all and let God sort them out eh!

I've got a better idea. Don't stick our noses in the affairs of others to begin with. What. We're short on internal problems to mess with. This entire invading other countries is stupid, expensive, gets Americans killed and doesn't make your dick any longer. Therefore, why do it? Iraq didn't blow up the World Trade Center and I don't expect to be invaded by the Afghan navy any time soon. We blindly continue on making billions of enemies. For what?
Close the door. Stop this stupid immigration. Deport religious malcontents, mind our own business, keep our money home and OUTLAW ISLAM in America. Then we won't have to blow them up.

12 I forgot. Put Americans back to work at something other than Mac Donald's by stop buying Chinese crap. Then vote for Greyrooster.

13 "Rooster: Have you ever heard mne bitch about Dresden"

Doesn't count. Full of White people.

14 Look Rooster you could see trouble with the Taliban coming 10 miles off before 9/11. I would have handled it, how shall I say, differently. No nation building but you know I would have taken it out of their asses and been home by Christmas.

I mean why help them back up after you serve the ass kicking. Let them wallow in it.

Fuck Afghanistan right up the ass.

Posted by: Howie at June 09, 2014 03:07 PM

15 I think that's a language the Taliban can understand and understand well.

This nation building thing and half assed offensives, they eat that for breakfast and use it to raise funds and train.

Level the place, destroy every road and starve their ass out in winter.

Sure we'll catch hell but we catch hell no matter, even with the kid gloves we catch hell so might as well go for broke.

Posted by: Howie at June 09, 2014 03:10 PM

16 Gee. All this time I thought Al Queda did the 9/11 thing.

I agree. Blowing up their shit and then replacing it with better shit doesn't make since to me. That's not punishing them for their actions. In much of the middle east that's rewarding them. Governments are responsible for what their people do. People are responsible for what their government does.

If we did go after them big time we wouldn't catch hell. We'd be respected for not taking shit anymore. Just like in the old days.

Posted by: Greyrooster at June 09, 2014 04:50 PM

17 By that I mean go after their infrastructure, government leaders, their military, power plants, water, etc: Not the civilians. I'm not ready to become a Nazi and kill the innocent. YET.

If we did make an example of say, Iran, what would the rest of the world do?
Much would be relieved.
Lefturds in America would whine.
Muslims would riot, demonstrate and make threats.
CAIR would sue someone.
A few white women airheads would get raped.
Putin would make speeches, but secretly be smiling a smile of relief.
Israel would dance in the streets and put their media machine to work in our defense.
South America would say it isn't their business.
Africa Christians would feel a bit better for their future.

Actually, I don't believe anyone would do shit.

They may even come to believe this Jihad thing isn't worth it. How knows?
