The United States military says US and Afghan forces have exchanged gunfire with Pakistani troops across the border with Afghanistan.

A senior US military official says a five-minute skirmish broke out after Pakistani soldiers fired warning shots near two US helicopters.


Later, in an address to the UN General Assembly, President Asif Ali Zardari referred to the cross-border tension when he said that his country could not allow its territory to "be violated by our friends".


The US and Nato have called on Pakistan to do more to curb militants operating in the border area.

We are going to have to invade sooner or later, unfortunately.

This could get real ugly. Obama and McCain have already taken a hard line on this subject and I think we have a legit reason to cross the border and do what the Pakistan government will not or can not do.

Too mad Musharraf had to vacate his power. We'll probably have an anti-American regime in there now.

Blah.
