Pakistani militants burn 160 Humvees
Supplies for the U.S. military apparently pass through Pakistani sea-ports on their way to Afghanistan. On Sunday, armed militants blasted their way into two transport terminals in Pakistan and torched more than 160 vehicles, including more than 70 Humvees.
The attack at the Portward Logistic Terminal turned a section of the large enclosed compound into a smoldering junkyard. The AP news agency reports that the psychotic militants blew up the gate before dawn with a rocket-propelled grenade, fatally shot a guard and set fire to vehicles. The Humvees supposedly cost about US$ 100,000 each.
Either these gunmen are Greenpeace activists protesting against fuel-guzzling vehicles, or it is a convoluted plot by Hummer to increase their free-falling sales.
