End of an era?

Is the honeymoon over?

Two intelligence officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media said two U.S. helicopters crossed one mile into Pakistan in the Alwara Mandi area in North Waziristan on Sunday. Citing informants in the field, they said Pakistani troops and tribesmen responded with small arms fire, but it was not clear whether it was aimed at the choppers or just warning shots.

I've seen a few articles which said that the new Pakistani President has ordered his military to fire on American troops if they find them in its territory or if they attack ground targets in Pakistan.

The honeymoon is definitely over!
