Hakimullah Mehsud, who had a $5m (£3.1m, Pakistan Rs 3500 billion) bounty on his head, was killed on Friday in the north-western Pakistani militant stronghold of North Waziristan, near the Afghan border. The ‘cultivated’ Pakistani asset was instrumental in bringing in revenues of over US$ 300 mn to Pakistani spy agency ISI through drug trade and it was under his supervision Pakistan army extended its network of terror nurseries from 173 in 2003 to over 750 by the end of 2012.

Among the measures being considered include Pakistan using Chinese drones to bomb random areas in its North West to compete with drone attacks perpetuated by US drones.  Pakistan PMO sources told Humor Unplugged that Pakistan also plans to stop movement of cabbies from Pakistan to US cities like New York.
Import of US flags will also be banned under a new legislation being worked on by Pakistani lawmakers. US flags are a huge a huge draw in Pakistan where one US flag is burnt every 3 seconds.

“We are also planning to revise our school textbooks to include a chapter on the September 11 attacks. We will be presenting a conspiracy angle to the attacks to say that 9/11 was indeed a self-inflicted wound and Pakistan was made to pay for an attack that was planned and executed by senior members of the Bush administration and its intelligence agencies. Oh and we will stop playing Pakistani movies in US theaters and that will really starve them - intellectually,” a senior Pakistani minister told Humor Unplugged.  

Pakistani PM recently told media folks that sanctions by Pakistan on US will cripple the American economy and force it to mend its ways in dealing with its 'ally'. The PM also announced that his government would fund a movie made by a Pakistani director that showed Pakistani drones bombing lawless parts of US.
