The report also singles out Pakistan, only fueling the fire of tension between the US and Pakistan.

Very, Very Glad I will be getting out of the city in the next few months. Counting the days until I'm in the Mountains.

Not just because of this, but if the economy is going to stink regardless as a best case scenario, I'll be riding this next few years out on a Snowboard
