if pakistan has detained an american with diplomatic immunity, then the US should be expelling pakistani diplomats en masse . . . NOW.  the protesting crowd is irrelevant;  they need to cough up our guy.

and as lawless as pakistan is, shooting first and asking questions later is understandable.

Thousands in Pakistan rally against American

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Hard-line Islamic leaders on Sunday rallied at least 15,000 people against an American official arrested in the shooting deaths of two Pakistanis and warned the government not to cave in to U.S. pressure to release the man.

The protest in the eastern city of Lahore, where the shootings took place, came as the U.S. Embassy once again insisted that the American has diplomatic immunity and was being detained illegally by Pakistan. But Pakistan has refused to budge, saying the matter must be decided by the courts.

The spat has revealed the fragility of a relationship Washington believes is crucial for success in Afghanistan and against al-Qaeda. Large protests by hard-line Islamic groups, which have significant influence in Pakistan, could make it even more difficult for the government to free the American.

"We warn the government and administration that ... if they help the arrested American illegally, then this crowd will surround the U.S. Embassy and presidential palace in Islamabad," Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, a senior official in the Jamiat Ulema Islam party, said during Sunday's rally.

The U.S. has said the American, who has not been named, acted in self-defense when he shot two armed men who approached his car in Lahore on Thursday.

Are you kidding me.....we'll probably throw more money at them......refit them with the latest and greatest military equipment and then end up bombing the sh*t out of them while we lose thousands of ground troops because we have idiots as leaders of our government.
