Nato go oops: Recent drone attacks and deaths in Pakistan lead to complete cutoff of supplies

It is becoming a banner year for Nato as failure to secure Afghanistan after several years of fighting, coupled with attacks on Libya and now Pakistan have led the Muslim nation and once western ally to cutoff supply routes for NATO forces.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Sunday said that the supply of NATO has not been suspended rather it has been stopped permanently. Talking to reporters at National Crisis Management Cell of Ministry of Interior, he strongly condemned the NATO attack on Pakistani forces.
 "NATO force should respect feelings of Pakistani nation." He said the nation and the government were aggrieved on the death of 24 officials of Pakistani security forces in the wake of NATO aggression on Salala post in Mohmand Agency. He said the decisions of the Defence Cabinet Committee (DCC) on the NATO forces attack inside Pakistan would be implemented in letter and spirit. "The decisions of the DCC are final and would be implemented," he added. – Pak Tribune

This decision could mean the end of allied occupation in Afghanistan even before Obama's pullout date, or worse, a decision by NATO to decide to punish Pakistan with strikes of their own.

Either way... are their enough men in European and US service to take on Iran as well... creating a 5-front conflict?
