      Obama might send troops into Pakistan By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer

      “Let me make this clear, there are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al-Qaida leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won’t act, we will.” …

      Analysts say an invasion could risk destabilizing Pakistan, breeding more militancy and undermining Musharraf. The Pakistani Foreign Office, protective of its national sovereignty, has warned that U.S. military action would violate international law and be deeply resented.

      A military invasion could be risky, given Pakistan’s hostile terrain and the suspicion of its warrior-minded tribesmen against uninvited outsiders….

      “I did not oppose all wars, I said. I was a strong supporter of the war in Afghanistan.”

      “It is time to turn the page. When I am President, we will wage the war that has to be won, with a comprehensive strategy with five elements: getting out of Iraq and on to the right battlefield in Afghanistan and Pakistan.”

      “The first step must be getting off the wrong battlefield in Iraq, and taking the fight to the terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan”

      “It’s time to turn the page on the diplomacy of tough talk and no action. ”

    3. Musharraf isn’t around anymore, but the point is taken; Barack Obama seems ready to fuck up Pakistan on day one.

      Hey, if Bhutto’s widower isn’t a total dickhead about it then maybe we can work together. It would take an idiot to cross an on-the-fence nation like Pakistan and start shit with a whole other country.

      Is Obama that idiot? Let’s watch!

    5. Okay dude, whatever. Obama being willing to strike within Pakistan’s borders against their wishes if it means taking out Bin Laden is TOTALLY the same thing as invading Iraq when we were already in Afghanistan, expecting to be welcomed with open arms. Those are completely the same thing. Go ahead, go over to your scoreboard and chalk in a line for victory for your own side. You’ll be the only one who thinks that is what this is.

    6. You mean taking aggressive unilateral military action on a sovereign foreign nation’s soil, which is typically in violation of U.N. regulations?

      How is that not cowboy action? I seem to recall that was exactly how it was originally defined.

      Oh wait…

      “Change!”

      Now it’s not. 😀
