At least 12 American soldiers have been killed in Pakistan in recent years.

On 3 February 2010 three American Special Operations soldiers were killed in Lower Dir, in Pakistan. (Soldiers' Deaths in Pakistan Raise Questions on US Presence)

The three American soldiers were wearing disguises.

They were dressed in Pakistani baggy trousers and long tunics, according to a Pakistani officer.

Reports from Pakistani security officials said the soldiers were killed by an explosive device.

Next the explosion site is a school.

Most of the 131 people who were wounded were girls who were pupils at the school.

Three of the Pakistanis who were killed were schoolgirls.

The soldiers were reportedly en route to the opening of the girls' school.

Why might American special forces, wearing disguises, want to visit a school in a volatile area?

Would it not have been better for Pakistanis to be involved in the opening of the school?

According to a 'Taliban' spokesman: "The Americans killed were members of the Blackwater group.

"We know they are responsible for bomb blasts in Peshawar and other Pakistani cities." (Blackwater-type US security contractor in NWFP: Bilour)

Capt. Jack Hanzlik, a spokesman for the United States Central Command in Tampa, Florida, said 12 other American soldiers had been killed in Pakistan since 11September 2001. (Soldiers' Deaths in Pakistan Raise Questions on US Presence)

On 20 September 2008, at least 60 people were killed, and scores seriously injured, when, reportedly, an explosives laden truck was used against the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan. (Car bomb attack in Islamabad leaves at least 60 people dead)

It was reported that several senior officers of the CIA were in Islamabad, on a visit, at the time of the explosion. (Islamabad blast)

According to Dawn, 21 September 2008, "Well-equipped security officers from the US embassy were seen on the spot soon after the explosions.

"However, they left the scene shortly afterwards." (Terror tears through capital)

Reportedly, the fifth and fourth floors of the hotel were housing mysterious steel boxes under the guard of United States marines.

Allegedly, these boxes were moved into the hotel when Admiral Mike Mullen met Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and others in Islamabad. (What Was Going on in the Marriott Hotel?)

There were GOVERNMENT number plates on the the explosives-laden truck which hit the Marriott hotel in Islamabad. (62 die as suicide bomber strikes Pakistani luxury hotel (Roundup)

Re: Led Zep post -
Jimmy Page bought Aleister Crowley's house, Boleskine.

I wonder if Clockwork Orange didn't attempt to destroy the Skinhead movement which began as Black Na d White Working Class together. Afte CO the movement schismed into Football hooliganism and ox-blood doc Martens.

Two-Tone later tried to 'put the movement back together'

Black Sabbath also emerged around that time, and Hawkwind.
