Pakistani main media outlets have accused the Bush administration of planning to launch a military action against the country.
The Pakistani daily Nawa-i-Waqt accused US President George W. Bush of 'directly targeting' Pakistan.
"President George Bush's latest interview is proof that Pakistan is a direct target of the US, which wants to maintain pressure on Pakistan on some pretext or other so that its illegitimate demands are met [and] wants to keep its options open for a direct [military] action in Pakistan," the daily wrote.
"[The US'] unjustified support of Israel, its occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, [and its] hostile ambitions against Pakistan, Iran, Syria and other Muslim countries [are the reasons why] Muslim people of the world, especially youth, are inflamed," it added.
The daily Jasarat wrote in an editorial that the threat of a US attack on Pakistan is imminent, and that the roots of the internal and external dangers currently facing Pakistan lie in its role as the ally of the US in the War on Terror.
Also, the Peshawar-based Urdu-language newspaper Roznama Mashriq accused the US of spreading unjustified anti-Pakistan propaganda.
George W. Bush had earlier told the ABC News that it is possible that a 9/11-like attack on the US is being planned inside Pakistan. http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=52271§ionid=351020401
