NATO Sets Stage for New War in Pakistan

With the war in Afghanistan nearing it's legislative terminus at least, it appears it is time for U.S./NATO forces to transition Eastward to keep the war machine a'running.

Pakistan has been hyped up for years now as a haven for Taliban fighters and sympathizers. There have been continued unmanned drone strikes since last 2010, culminating in the "death of Osama bin Laden." Now there is talk of the ISI and Pakistani military having either facilitated "Osama's refuge" or at least staying neutral in the matter. Big problem. Look for that angle to be played up in the coming weeks, as these "skirmishes" continue.

When it's presented to the American people that we need to essentially go to war with Pakistan, as they (at least factions of the military/government) either are sympathetic or facilitators of terrorism (Osama, the big kahuna), it will most likely be an easy sell.

The cards are right for the next great conflict:
1. July mandate for troop withdrawal from Afghanistan
2. U.S. national debt ceiling hit, pension funds have begun to be tapped, exhausted by early August (e.g. need a new war to substantiate new monetization)
3. Pakistan has issued statements that any unauthorized U.S./NATO helicopter or aircraft will be attacked upon entering sovereign Pakistani airspace.
4. Pakistan's issuance of the ceasing of Drone aircraft strikes.
5. Supposed tacit cooperation of Pakistani gov./officials/military/ISI/etc. with Osama and Al Qaeda

This is bad folks. China and Russia could become involved, tough to say what will happen at this point.

Not so sure this will be an easy sell. The American people are tired of war and all the soldiers coming home minus arms and legs or worst of all in, a casket. It's time to get out of the middle east. We need to get our own house in order and stop trying to "rescue" the world.
