    When I heard that statement by Sec'y Clinton, I was really puzzled.

    Was that simply for domestic consumption?

    Is there actually some sort of threat that this administration can hold over Pakistan, after all, can we withdraw aid and support, as a jihadi takeover of Pakistan is out of the question...as is a US military invasion of a nation of 170 millon persons.

    So, what are the 'very severe consequences'? A good tongue-lashing?

    The point of my response was not to probe for facts...merely conjecture, as in 'do you think this administration-statement is a total fraud.'

    Since you posted this with some sort of approval, did you attempt any analysis... or

    1. you believe that the good Sec'y can throw a lamp as far as Pakistan,

    or

    2. are you merely a lap-dog of the Sec'y?


    Speak up.

    the point of your inquiry was to attempt to undermine Secretary Clinton's statement.

    thanks for playing.

    The point of my inquiry was exactly as stated. The most superficial analysis would have seen through it...except that you and the OP aren't up to even superficial analysis.

    Or did I step on your heroines' toes? Is that the reason for your jibe?

    And 'thanks for playing'...is that meant to be clever? Actually, it's so demode.

    The OP seems to support the "WHUPPIN' " that 'HILL' suggests she will give to Pakistan if they don't work harder on behalf of the administration.

    I'm interested in the form of 'WHUPPIN' that he believes that HILL will impose.

    Or if he actually believes that she is serious.

    'Cause, they're some folks that will believe anything.

    I also would like to know what possible consequences there would be?

    It is never good to make threats unless there is something behind them. If threats are made (as in this case) and nothing follows, then we have insulted someone and then been made to look foolish.

    It is like the administration is reading Dale Carnagie and doing the reverse, or has a reverse goal... how to make enemies and have no influence over anything.

    PC (for Political Crap),

    Military invasion of 170 million persons ? Even the mention of that possibility is out of order. The day we'd attempt doing anything so stupid isn't even considered. IT'S AIR STRIKES, STUPID !!!
