    Rush is right. Obama is INCREDIBLY gutsy.

    Just days after a predawn raid by Navy SEALS killed OBL, the US launches another drone attack inside Pakistan which reportedly killed 15 militants. And this is taking place despite Pakistan's protests.

    As I recall, Bush just tiptoed on the issue of going after militants inside Pakistan even as he sent billions of US dollars to Musharraff.

    Well, given the circumstances under which OBL was located, Pakistan’s not really in any position to protest.

    I have to laugh at the way that Rush mocked (I should say, attempted to mock) Obama as being gutsy. These drone strikes have been going on for months.

    Meanwhile, the RW's beloved "tough-on-terrorists" George W. Bush never found the guts to take the war to the terrorists in Pakistan and Yemen the way Obama does. Instead, they said that Obama "dithered."

    Come on. Be friggin' real! The one who dithered was Bush, for crying out loud. It's Obama that has the steel spine!

    Can't tell if your being serious or sarcastic? :confused:

    Yeah, those drone attacks are really "gutsy". I'll bet there's guts all over the place:

    You know, I read somewhere that Obama won a, what is it called, Nobel Peace Prize? You think maybe he misplaced it or just doesn't care?

    Part of it is because they didn't want the "party" to end. Plenty of war-profiteers, like Halliburton, saw this as a goldmine.

    Party's over.

    Yep. I bet India is drooling right now thinking about Pakistan trying to declare war on the US. They've been fighting wars every few years for decades now.

    In any scenario, they'd attack from the East, and we'd come in from the west.

    There's no way Pakistan would start a war with us, they'd have enemies on both fronts, and would lose very, very quickly.

    Yes, because Pakistani intelligence has always proved trustworthy in the past...
