    Wow. Thanks for that, Walter Cronkite. You were there, huh?

    If they did I would not be surprised, or blame them for that matter. They have repeatedly asked us to stop our incursions into their country, yet we continue to do it anyways. Think about it. If Canada was bombing the Rocky Mtns. in the US cause there were anti-Canadian rebels there, we would not be happy with it either. I understand that we want to continue fighting terrorism, but we still have to respect the borders of other sovereign nations. As much as we like to believe we are; we are not above the law. We need to find a diplomatic solution to this problem instead of continuing to violate their borders illegally.

    Pakistan warned us a week ago, that they would fire on our soldiers if they entered Pakistan.

    Speak for yourself. I would support bombing raids in the Rocky Mts by Canada if there were anti-Canadian rebels there.

    Yep, allies are allies. If Pakistan cannot control the region then fuck em. Lets go in and control it for them. The region presents a clear and present danger.

    After we asked them cease and desist numerous times? I doubt it, and that is exactly what happened in Pakistan.

    Then we go to war with Pakistan for harboring terrorists. Nukes or no.

    And that is the problem with American foreign policy right there; that attitude. Just because we have the largest military in the world does not give us the right to ignore international laws. The region may or may not pose an imminent threat to the US (I am not convinced that it does), but there are better way of dealing with this situation then just ignoring Pakistani requests to stop our incursions. If the Bush Administration really wanted to, I am sure they could work out something with Pakistan to deal with the issue. That would involve some effort on the part of the Bush Administration, and why actually try to do something the right way when you can just take shortcuts? The story of the last eight years.
