    This is far worse than Iran sending its silly nave...

    U.S. confirms attacks by Pakistani military units

    Pakistani military units fired shots at American and Afghan government troops along the Afghanistan border several times over the past year, in encounters the United States has downplayed but that illustrate the fraying relations between the countries, according to officials.

    On Wednesday, Afghanistan's foreign ministry issued an angry warning to Pakistan after claiming that about 300 rockets had been launched across the Pakistani border into the Nuristan and Kunar provinces of Afghanistan, killing an unspecified number of civilians.

    Agreed, it's not good.

    I considered the aggressive stance of Pakistan toward the US to be rather sudden and unexpected. Now I see that it isn't sudden at all. I had hoped to get the US out of Afghanistan. Such behavior from Pakistan is more likely to make us stay and defend Afghanistan. *sigh*

    The US has killed Pakistani boarder guards as well, if I am not mistaken the boarder guarders were killed before the events you mention

    What do you imagine that means?
    well, it tells me that the enlightenment had a good run, and now it's back to the dark ages.

    I take it to mean that the USN is still relatively larger than other navies despite it's smaller size compared to ww2 counterparts. So concerns that the navy isn't large enough aren't as bad as it may seem.

    We should encourage it...insist they follow up with it. I think it would be fun seeing if 1-their 'navy' could make it here, and 2-just how well their supply chain works to keep them afloat.

    Just out of curiousity, why would we do that? Are we at war with Iran and nobody told me?

    As long as they stay in international waters i dont think there would be a problem. Just be kinda fun to see how they would respond if things did get a little froggy.
