    Heard about this on Friday and I'm a bit surprised no one else has posted about it.
    Again, sorry it's not from MSNBC or Fox News.

    Any of you would be warriors out there who think that the US is just gonna' go in there again and take out Pakistans nukes any time we please better think twice about it because now they know we're coming. I hope President Obama is thinking twice about it too.

    Whatever Obama thinks, the right wing will think the opposite. You can bet on it.

    Don't stop there. ;)



    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan said on Saturday it wanted China to build it a naval base, in the latest sign of moves to strengthen ties with Beijing as relations with Washington falter.

    The announcement from Pakistan’s defence minister came a day after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani returned from a four-day visit to China, Islamabad’s biggest arms supplier.

    “We would be … grateful to the Chinese government if a naval base is … constructed at the site of Gwadar for Pakistan,” Defence Minister Ahmad Mukhtar said in a statement, referring to a deep-water port in Pakistan’s southwest.

    The statement did not say whether Pakistan had asked China to build the base at the port in Baluchistan province.
    Islamabad is trying to deepen ties with Beijing as relations with the United States have come under strain following the killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan this month.

    Do you even have a clue as to who is actually a threat to your well being. World War 4 could start tomorrow, and you would find a was to spin it so you could blame us RDean.

    Did you know that Obama didn't want to go into Libya? Sec. Def. Gates didn't want to do it either. You know who talked him into it? Hillary fuckin' Clinton!
    The President needs to grow a set or fire the warmonger Hillary.

    Who's said anything about taking out their nukes? Bad idea. You miss one, and it's gonna wind up in your front yard.

    China can't build a decent jet engine. The -17s are flying Russian engines. I wouldn't consider the PAF much of a threat anyway.

    This is why I'm bringing it up and that's why I'm saying it wouldn't be a cakewalk.

    Ahhh. I thought you meant an American had said it.

    No, it wouldn't be a cakewalk, and like I said, it'd be a bad idea.
