Is Pakistan Next?

Quote:

"We need to put the most heavy possible pressure on our friends in Pakistan to join us in the fight against the Taliban and its allies," Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said in Washington. "We cannot succeed in Afghanistan without Pakistan's support and involvement."
Wuh-Oh...out of Iraq and into Pakistan?

Quote:

The collapse of a 3-month-old truce with the Taliban means Pakistan will now have to fight to regain control of the Swat Valley, testing the ability of its stretched military and the resolve of civilian leaders who until recently were insisting the insurgents could be partners in peace. The government feared the refugee exodus could reach half a million people.
And therein lies the problem. A truce with a terrorist organization is like a truce with a ticking time bomb. Idiots.

I'm so happy to know that Pakistan has nuclear weapons too. What joy it brings to my heart that those Moderate Taliban folks could potentially get their hands on some peaceful nuclear weapons.

Obama went WAY out of his way to avoid answering the INCREDIBLY important question asked of him at last weeks press conference about whether or not the US would move to secure Pakistan's nuclear arsenal if it was at risk of falling in the Taliban's hands.

He said it's safe, and he trusts Pakistan.

Glad you mention that.

Obama, Lowering the Bar on Capturing or Killing Bin Laden

I know I'm supposed to be outraged that Obama is downplaying the importance of finding and killing Osama bin Laden.

And yes, this represents another statement expiration date, as Obama's convention speech included this shameful line:

When John McCain said we could just "muddle through" in Afghanistan, I argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and made clear that we must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights. John McCain likes to say that he'll follow bin Laden to the Gates of Hell - but he won't even go to the cave where he lives.

And now, we learn, apparently, Barack Obama won't go there, either.
The link withing the quote gives us this fine piece:

Quote:

The president-elect tells CBS that the terror leader must be "pinned down," but not necessarily killed or captured.

"If we have so tightened the noose that he's in a cave somewhere and can't even communicate with his operatives, then we will meet our goal of protecting America.
Either it's important to find and kill him as stated in his campaign promise...or it isn't. Naturally, now that he's won the vote of the majority...it's not nearly as important.

Didn't take him very long to break that campaign promise though, did it?
