    wow. reaching much?


    No, we aren't at war with Pakistan. We are at war with some Pakistanis. If we were at war with Pakistan, then at a minimum we would be currently bombing their nuclear facilities and perhaps employing our own.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    Up at the northern border there are Taliban-friendly groups.

    You don't want to call that war. But, as the saying goes, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it must be a duck. All I'm saying is it's a duck.
    So do you think Obama should be charged with war crimes for ordering the mission?

    Only if up is down.

    How you leap to charging Obama with war crimes from my remarks is beyond me.

    You seem to be claiming that the mission to kill UBL was illegal. Obama ordered it. Shouldn't he be held responsible for that illegal act?

    UBL wasn't living up at the northern border now was he? In fact all of the major al Qaeda and Taliban leadership figures caught in Pakistan were located in or near its three largest cities and in many cases close to major military installations. Point is that those Pakistanis we agree we're at war with appear to be pretty mainstream if not in significant control of important national military and intelligence assets; i.e., the people who really run things in Pakistan. Add a thin patina of westernized, corrupt Pakistanis on top and you have what is Pakistan today, a friendly, even familiar, highly dependent nation with a not so invisible, radicalized nation within.

    No. I'm saying this is war. We're at war with Pakistan. Only nobody wants to say so because that would be inconvenient for us and them. We've entered a new phase in modern warfare where the war is not only undeclared (Korea, Vietnam), not acknowledged (Laos, Cambodia), and now where we carry on country-to-country relations, even subsidize the enemy country, as if nothing untoward was happening (Pakistan).

    No, killing of an Islamic moron was merely a necessity to avoid following terror attacks in the U.S.
