WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan says the United States threatened to bomb his country back to the Stone Age after the 9/11 attacks if he did not help America's war on terror.

Musharraf says the threat was delivered by Richard Armitage, then the deputy secretary of state, to Musharraf's intelligence director, the Pakistani leader told CBS-TV's "60 Minutes."

"The intelligence director told me that (Armitage) said, 'Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age,' " Musharraf said in the interview to be shown Sunday on the CBS television network. (Watch how Armitage shook up the Pakistan intelligence chief -- 1:35)

I thought they threatened to bomb Saudi Arabia only. damn.... most Pakistanis are already anti-American and I would like to see their reactions to this news.

This was allegedly said a long time ago? By one man, who is no longer with us? Who cares? I assume they had information that Assama was living there at the time, maybe they were not helping.

Seconded.

Remember, there were people openly celebrating the acts of the terrorists on 9/11 and the days after in the streets of Pakistan. I honestly wouldn't mind if we moved in on Pakistan, especially since they are now calling it quits in that troubled area of their country.

Another display of American leaders trying to push the little countries into doing what they want.

Point being? They lack the ability to deliver it by any means aside from an aircraft, which could easily be eliminated by our vastly superior air force.

Unless that's the point you're getting at. They would hand it over to terrorists who would in turn use it against us. Yes, that is a much greater thread.

Fire Legion, you're British. You should know that the people who bombed London last July were all from Pakistan.
