US Ready To Fight In Pakistan Says Gates!

The situation in Iraq remains volatile, the war in Afghanistan is hampered by lack of clear vision and disagreement between the United States and its NATO allies, but Secetary of Defense Robert Gates is ready to dispatch US forces to Pakistan to assist in the war against militants. “We remain ready, willing and able to assist the Pakistanis and partner with them to provide additional training, to conduct joint operations, sould they desire to do so.” He emphasized America would not take any unilateral action but would only send troops if requeted by the government of Pakistan.

At points, observers remain confused as to whether there is anyone in the Bush administration who has a focused view on world affairs. There has been no “victory” in Iraq, and prospects for stability are still uncertain. Afghanistan over the past years has seen the spead of Taliban influence, not its dimunition. Where does Secretary of Defense Gates intend to find the troops who will be sent to Pakistan?

During his campaign swing in New Hampshire, Senator McCain casually mentioned America might be tied down in Iraq for abou 100 years. Adolf Hitler boasted about a Nazi Germany that would last a 1000 years. At least the Republican party is going to spare America the prospect of such an extended war, they offer only a 100 year war in the Middle East and Asia. Of course, none of the children of these men interested in war will ever see the front lines of combat. Pakistan’s army has to handle this situation, the last thing they need are Americans fighting in the northwest regions of their nation. The appearance of US forces would be the best recruiting message the Taliban could have in order to obtain new recruits.

    So exactly what is your contribution? Violence? Ignorance? Verbal pollution?

    But what’s your contribution, aside from snide musings about world affairs? Do you have any solutions? It’s one thing to call people/policies names, but back it up with something that contributes. Democrats have been milking the “George Bush is idiot” teet way too long; trying desparately to say it funnier or cleverer than the next guy. And “Bring them home” isnt really an option. So? Whad’ya got?

    Iraq is won.

    In your blog you said that none of the children of these men will ever see combat. John McCain’s son is currently serving in Iraq. You are not only an idiot, but you are a liar.

    And by the way, the war in Iraq is over. It is all clean up now and the clean up is being done by the Iraqi army. Don’t you read the papers? Or are you so dissapointed by the success of the Iraq war that you choose to live in your pathetic fantasy world where America is the evil empire.

    You disgust me. Your hatred for America is transparent and displays your ignorance. Leave any time you want. It won’t be soon enough for me.

    John McCain is a man of courage who risked his life for his country unlike draft dodgers like Bush and Cheney. I have never made a statement about John McCain that ever doubts his honesty and integrity.
    Anyone who can claim “the war in Iraq is over” doesn’t have the slightest grasp of reality. Why not read Azzaman for some information.
    By the way, I volunteered to serve my country during the Korean War. Please tell me what you have ever done for America except spread your filthy lies.
