    @ Lord Tammerlain -- I hear you. We ought to find better ways to compromise -- or forget compromise all together and use other methods. Reminds me of The Little Mouse That Roared.
    Without compromise nothing would ever get done except at the barrel of a gun (or equivalent)

    @ Lord Tammerlai -- I think I have to give you this one, LT. ;-) Any argument I'd make from here on would just look foolish. Ha! "See, aren't I EZ, she says while folding like a cheap suit.

    American forces cannot enter Pakistan. However, if serious trade develops between Pakistan and Afghanistan and those trade routes and Afghanistan civilians are compromised then military forces suddely have a very good excuse to commit military forces in the border regions which can either be IN Pakistan, or IN Afghanistan. Which just also happens to be where most of the militant forces are hiding.

    US forces are in Pakistan, and have made plenty of attacks within Pakistan with drone strikes. What the US cant do without serious consequences is put large number of forces in pakistan for any length of time
