    U.S. faces hard reality with Pakistan - Pakistan - msnbc.com

    U.S. officials say that while Pakistani officials cooperate more in private, there are definite limits. The U.S. wanted Pakistan to move forces deeper into the tribal belt before winter. It didn't happen, and might not at all.

    The U.S. military now counts the Haqqani network as the single gravest threat to U.S. forces fighting over the border in Afghanistan, and badly wants Pakistan to push the militants from their border refuges. But the Pakistani answer seems to be that unless and until the Haqqanis threaten Pakistan, they won't be a priority.

    Without additional pressure from inside Pakistan, the only other option is for the U.S. to finish the fight against terrorists on its own. But Pakistan doesn't allow outright U.S. military action on its soil.

    When do you have time to get a nonbinding three page letter of mutual understanding Mr. Obama?

    Let's bring all of our troops home. Then nuke Afghanistan. That will teach them.

    I can easily see Iraq and Afganistan making Obama a one term president.

    If America is still around in 2016, it will probably make our next president a one termer also.

    I think its amazing that no General has taken over our Republic.

    Nothing will bring a Dictator out of the Closet like unsuccessful wars, and a collapsing economy.

    Obama and the Democrat strategists who came up with this new plan will be responsible for losing the war. Another stain on the dress called the Democrat Party.
