The moral pf this story is you cannot call a country you are holding at gunpoint a reliable ally. What makes anyone think Afghanistan and Pakistan are US allies? Pakistan has historically been China's No.1 ally in the region, and that hasn't changed.

normally i would say Pakistan but then you consider that america practically is the Israeli military with all the treaty's we have with them and if they decide to do anything that invokes retaliation, weve got to come in and they've brought us another war. their already doing it with Iraq and the whole middle east is standing on a pin already. i give us 10 years before something happens and we've got to go in and try to fix it.

As far as Mexico goes, the stats really haven't moved much in the past decade. One would think Obama's rating would fall since he has deported more illegals than any other president in recent times.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Is this gonna affect relations in a major way? No. Will they be long lasting? No, once Obama is out it will be over as far as foreign relations are concerned. But to think that that act didn't have any impact, any meaning, is to not understand diplomatic relations. Where EVERY move has some sort of meaning and significance.
