Pakistan: U.S. Won't Cross Our Border


www.cbsnews.com

(AP) Pakistan's top diplomat said Saturday there are no U.S. or other foreign military personnel on the hunt for Osama bin Laden in his nation, and none will be allowed in to search for the al Qaeda leader.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said his nation's new government has ruled out such military operations, covert or otherwise, to catch militants.

Well, it looks like the honey-moon and welcome mat between the states and Pakistan has run its course...So much for the hunt for OBL, but then again, when has that EVER been the priority for this endlesly stumble-bumming administration?

But I'm not so sure this guy should be so confident in his statements, with the group of imperialistic war-mongers we have at the helm...


"Our government's policy is that our troops, paramilitary forces and our regular forces are deployed in sufficient numbers. They are capable of taking action there. And any foreign intrusion would be counterproductive," he said Saturday. "People will not accept it. Questions of sovereignty come in."

The United States has grown increasingly frustrated as al Qaeda, the Taliban and other militants thrive in Pakistan's remote areas and in neighboring Afghanistan, and has offered U.S. troops to strike at terror networks. Critics in Washington also have expressed frustration with the new Pakistani government's pursuit of peace deals in the region.

What would Obama do? hmmm, oh yea. Meet with them face to face without preconditions. Then he would tell them that they have to let us find OBL or we will put economic sanctions on them.

What would McCain do? Send an envoy to Pakistan and tell them that they have to let us find OBL or we will put economic sanctions on them.

Same message, only difference is distance. Both messages can be taken as a threat. Seriously, I can't speak for either candidate. All I know is that this problem will plague the next President. If anybody has any good suggestions, let your candidate know.
