    Couldn't be pro American? Then you would have guessed correctly:

    True. That could be an un-ambiguous and stringent statement of anti-americanism by the NYT. But wait, couldn't that also be an unambiguous and stringent statement in favor of democracy (alternatively, against rule by fiat)? But I thought that the United States believed in democracy?

    I just don't understand. Is it possible that one could be pro-democracy, and as a result, anti-american?

    I must retire to consider the implications of this newfound revelation.

    I guess a country could use a democratic process to become any form of government they would like.

    I was referring to the NYT or Americans generally, not other countries.

    Here's the Pakis stating how their army is best suited to deal with Al Qaeda in Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Province. Islamabad has little control over over the NWFP. Either they get control and fast, or someone will do it for them.

    Then do something about the Islamic terrorists massed in the NWFP.

    Its no use OD. They are going to do anything about those scumbags. Musharraf might ask the Pakistani Air FOrce to go jihadist-hunting with their F-16's but thats all. ANd I doubt the ISI(Pak secret service) will even allow that. They need the scumbags to terrorize Kashmir , NWFP and Afghanistan!!
