Whiny lil ungrateful bitches.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
I expect if Afghanistan put pressure on the Taliban in thier country, the Taliban would move into Pakistan.
Then, once we have them concentrated in one place, tell Pakistan to rid the world of the Taliban or face REAL sanctions.

China 'asks USA to respect Pak sovereignty'
ISLAMABAD, 19 MAY: In the wake of the US raid in Abbottabad that killed Osama bin Laden, China has “warned in unequivocal terms that any attack on Pakistan would be construed as an attack on China”, a media report claimed today.
I am skeptical that this may be a cover up over the fact that Pakistan may have known Osama's whereabouts and not told anyone. Regardless, they are acting like spoiled brats and shouldn't be listened to. The fact that they are acting like this seems as if they wanted to protect Osama and are now mad that he is out of this world.

I would not be so eager to go to war with Pakistan, unless you WANT a new world war?
Pakistan now has more nukes than anyone except us and Russia. Yet when they get natural disasters they expect the outside world to bail them out. All of this is based on paranoia about India whooping their ass 3x. What we need to do is push for these 2 countries to make peace, and put the Israeli/Palestinians on the back burner.......again.
