    If they do that they lose, and they know it.

    as for the Pakistani Government - this is an empty threat to appease their people. the problem, however, is that it seems they are willing to appease their people and enable anti-US sentiment.


    YUUuuup; it's about time we started becoming Real Good Friends with India.

    This posturing in a joke. As we speak, U.S. supply convoys are continuing to move through Pakistan with the blessing of the government. The bribes paid in military aid have gotten their money's worth.

    Hmph. Some so-called ally, anyway.
    BS. I suspect there's a lot more to the story than what the media and both governments have revealed.

    There's simply no way US troops could've landed helicopters into the area that they did without Pakistani forces noticing. The compound was near a military academy. The sounds of the choppers would've given it away, and search lights would've picked up the SEAL team.

    Only logical conclusion is that the Pakistani govt knew about the raid. And very obviously, the Pakistani govt also knew about bin Laden's whereabouts. I'm not sure what's happening.

    However, it's inapproriate to say "we" when referring to the actions of the US military. America's military is under the command of the US government, and the US government is under the command of corporations, PACs, hedge funds, etc., not the American people.

    It could care less what you or I think or want.

    Seriously tho, I think eventually, Pakistan will devolve to a Taliban dominated government with nuclear weapons. I actually see the possibility of a Pakistani nuke as greater than an Iranian.
    Gee, you think? It's why Pakistan and the U.S. can act only so bitchy toward each other: if we left and allowed the Taliban to take over, the Taliban would have the nuke, which by extension means Al Qaeda has the nuke, which means we nuke Afghanistan out of the sheer terror that a group sworn to destroy us actually possesses the means to do so.

    Then things will start to get really ugly.

    So rattle your sabres and puff your chests out as much as you want with regards to Pakistan. We ain't leaving til the Taliban and Al Qaeda are dead like yesterday.

    I doubt very much that the Pakistani government would be that stupid. I think they like having their country as it is, not glass.

    This is my position on this...

    1 A-stan nor the Taliban attacked us on 9-11 neither did Hussein

    2 We went into A-stan to flush AQ and deny them an area

    3 We should have pulled out of there as soon as AQ did.

    4 Fix A-stan? Bull****... nobody is gonna fix that ****hole

    The Pakistanis are trying to save face, that's all. They know who their cash cow is.

    Pakistan to overtake Britain as world's fifth largest nuclear power | Mail Online

    Lets not underestimate, the Pakis

    Pakistan is on the verge of overtaking Britain as the world's fifth largest nuclear power at a time when the country faces an unprecedented threat from extremists.
    American intelligence agencies believe that Pakistan now has more than 100 deployed nuclear weapons, an increase of nearly 40 per cent in two years.

    Fortunately, in recent years, the U.S. relationship with India has improved. The two countries don't agree on everything, but democracies can respectfully disagree on issues as the bigger picture is support for democracy and human rights.

    Not to worry, The Appeaser is heading to Pakistan.
