IED blast in N Waziristan kills nine Army soldiers: ISPR

 Note:  so there's no confusion, these were PAKISTANI soldiers killed.

This was a real bad one - how and why the government and military of Pakistan will consistently put up with this bullshit is beyond me.

But hey, no biggie I got 9 soldiers coming home in baggies...why don't you sign another peace agreement with the Taliban?

The story comes from DAWN.
