Many of us lack confidence BHO’s having a definitive strategy in Afghanistan, especially given recent revelations. Pakistan is complicated. We need them for our our basing supply to NATO efforts in Afghanistan. The bulk of the money we supply to Pakistan is for their assistance in the WOT and as BHO has said, they are an integral player in the WOT/whatever it’s called now as a Major Non-NATO Ally (VOA News - Obama Says Afghanistan, Pakistan Stability Key to His Goals). Yet, the FATA and now other areas, are out of control with more establishment of Al queda and/or Taliban operations (Al-Qaeda allies build huge Pakistan base). Not only that, Pakistan has its own prioties with paranoia (founded or otherwise) about India. In fact, US funds were diverted to strengthen defense against India, according to Mussaref in a recent interview. We know that BHO will not hesitate to OK the crossing of the Pakistan border to hit strategic targets and I agree wholeheartedly with that. Even if it does piss of the Pakistanis, it’s a good gamble that is all it will do as Pakistan doesn’t want to lose the money we give them. And, about two weeks ago, the Senate voted to triple aid to Pakistan. So, I am eager to see some strategy gel for our security efforts in this part of the world. Personally, I would like to see McCrystal get more troops to improve Afghanistan, and I would like to see some sort of Pakistan strategy that does not just include more money to them, expecially considering the additional complication of recent unrest. Any speculation about what will change, if anything, with respect to Pakistan as part of the overall strategy?
