I cant, for the life of me, understand how these attacks on a sovereign Nation, arent considered acts of war.
The US is currently militarily active in 6 Middle Eastern countries (overtly at least) and Im not sure how much more the world will put up with before something is done
OF course Pakistan has to talk tough. They are deeply infiltrated by factions unfriendly to the US, and could easily fall victim to another ISI sponsored Mumbai bombing
