(The same way that Ramzi Yousuf, Aimal Kansi and hundreds of Al-Qaeda affiliated fighters were handed over to Americans).These officials should be tried in a COURT-OF-LAW in Pakistan and punished for their WAR-CRIMES.4) Demand a Blood Money of at least 1 Billion Dollar per head for the Pakistani Soldiers Martyred in the Attack (The same International Laws can be pursued which forced Libya to pay Billions of Dollars to the families of those killed in the 1988 Lockerbe Bombing Case)

Pakistan should stop all cooperation with USA, and discuss with Iran if they want Nuclear weapons and Nuclear weapons technology. Christians are enemies of all Muslims and something needs to be done about it NOW.
