Let's See How Thin We Can Stretch Them...

...before they break.

Not content with fighting "wars" in Afghanistan and Iraq and threatening to invade Iran, we've now added Pakistan to the list.

Lt Gen. David Richards, who leads the US and NATO forces in Afghanistan, has been echoing what President George W. Bush has been saying for some time.

Using the language of a soldier, he claimed to have the mandate to cross into Pakistani territory without informing, leave alone consulting, Islamabad, if he had specific evidence of terrorist whereabouts.

Ofc, if the terrorist is in the U.S. and another sovereign state tried to claim a mandate for coming in without "informing" or "consulting" our government about it, that would be another matter entirely.

I'm no tactician, but if we already don't have enough soldiers, how exactly are we going to manage to invade on yet another front?

At the White House, Mr Bush met Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who assured the US leader of his desire to root out the Taliban and other extremists.

The visit came amid controversy over General Musharraf's claims in a forthcoming memoir that the Bush Administration threatened to bomb Pakistan "to the Stone Age" if it failed to co-operate with the US against al-Qaeda and the Taliban after the September 11, 2001, attacks.
