Obama didn’t care to notify US Congress about his dealings with Taliban, even when he was bound by the US law to do so. The Pakis really should not expect him to notify them, much less to ask for their permission. When he actually asks them, they should treat this as a mere courtesy, because the USA has the means to act regardless.

Now they’re getting the idea. This was likely to happen… The airport was one explosion too far. Their general public will not tolerate that kind of stuff in their own backyard.

All of the drone strikes and Tomahawks we can spare, delivered with a smile.

But not ONE American boot on the ground.

itsmysay – gonna respectfully disagree on the “jail” thing, how’s Gitmo been working out with just a few hundred? What’re you gonna do with thousands – tens of thousands? I’m a deep respecter of human life, and regard violence as the utter last resort – but they’re made their intentions clear, and burned their “civilization membership” cards. Find’em – kill’em. I’m good with that.

Yeah, lets put them in jail so we can trade the worst of them for soldiers that they kidnap so they get their leaders their back.

Pakistan’s doggy (the Taliban) turned and bit their hand, boo-hoo!

Pakistan thought they could control those animals to destabilize Afghanistan, what fools. Complaining about US drones, now crying and begging for US drones. Disgusting self-serving interests.

Could it be that governments that claim to be “Islamic” are getting the message within a few decades of Muslim resurgence that as good as a religion is at dictating morality, it is a disaster at running a government. It took Christians four centuries to come to that conclusion and “give” the Pope Vatican City instead of Europe.
