Pakistand will not allow foreign forces in its territory, which is a direct conflict with President Bush's comments that if Osama Bin Laden were known to be in pakistan we would take military action. Whats so interesting about this is Pakistans open rejection of this plan.
Pakistan today vowed to not let foreign forces enter its territory a day after US president George Bush said he would order American military action inside this Islamic nation if Osama bin Laden was found to be hiding there.

Bush told CNN that he would authorise military action inside Pakistan if intelligence indicated that al-Qaida leader bin Laden or other top terrorists were in hiding.

Pakistani foreign ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam declined to respond directly to Bush’s remarks, but reiterated president General Pervez Musharraf’s recent rejection of any foreign military forces stepping foot in this Asian nation.

“Any terrorist action to be taken inside Pakistani territory would be taken by Pakistan,” Aslam said.

I think its good that Pakistan is standing up to the US on this one. They strictly make it clear they won't let us in and they will handle their own problems. They have also been attacked by terrorists, so they know what they can do. I am interested to see how bush will respond to such statements. Bush says they will go in to get the terrorists and then Pakistan says 'uh no you won't'. How will the government respond if intelligence says Osama is in Pakisand and Pakistan won't allow the U.S. to enter?
