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"
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
3. Pakistan has issued statements that any unauthorized U.S./NATO helicopter or aircraft will be attacked upon entering sovereign Pakistani
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.
