Well of course not. The world is not black and white. There is no such thing is good guys and bad guys, at least not on this. On this scale, it is all
a matter of perspective.Well of course not. The world is not black and white. There is no such thing is good guys and bad guys, at least not on this.
On this scale, it is all a matter of perspective.
The world DOES have bad guys. The notion that it is all grey area is simply a matter of not wanting to deal with the fact that there are people,
organizations, and governments out there that, given the chance, would do things far more sinister than anything one could accuse the US of doing.
The line by ol Dubya summed it up great. "You're either with us or against us", is one of the most totalitarian, sickening things the "leader of the
'free' World" has ever said. That line also seem to be the mantra behind milkyway12's laughingly misguided opinion.
Pakistan does certainly have the right to refuse access to airspace to the US. But let's get one thing clear, if Pakistan is arming, training,
funding, and providing intelligence to forces engaged in open hostilities toward the US, what does that make them?
We are the US. We are fighting the 'war on terror', a war we ourselves viciously perpetuate every day, under the guise of forced liberation. You don't
want your drones in your airspace? Stop allowing 'terrorist' to be trained in your country. Or else. All your base are belong to us."
I don't quite see it that way. But that's neither here nor there. What I will say is that if Pakistan does continue to actively engage US personnel in
Afghanistan then Pakistan can expect retaliation in kind.
Remember that time one of the US' alphabet agencies tried to get Sweden to take down a website hosting illegally pirated movies, and Sweden rightfully
responded with "this lies outside of your jurisdiction, you arrogant imbeciles"?
What does this have to do with military engagements between the US and Pakistan? This issue is entirely different.
Yea. Both great examples of the US' over-reaching lust for "liberty". A disgustingly hypocritical stance to take, considering the actions of certain
municipal police forces in the last few months.
My only issue with what is happening in Afghanistan is the mobilization of our war machine to deal with the likes of the Taliban and AQ. It has, in
fact, been a colossal waste of money when you consider that we could have achieved a more favorable outcome using SF, minimal air power, and
international law enforcement agencies.
Wake up and smell the coffee.
I'm wide awake. I just don't see things from your perspective.
