Think Bush is Stupid Now? Wait Until He Invades Pakistan

It's possible that the U.S. forces will invade Pakistan, dealing with tribal leaders, brigands, and other colorful characters in the ungoverned land between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

To date, "everybody knows" that President Bush is stupid because he isn't chasing terrorists anywhere except in Iraq.

If U.S. forces go into the ungoverned area that's nominally in Pakistan, I think we can count on an outcry about how stupid President Bush is because he's getting the States involved in a country other that Iraq.

(I know: but I'm not "everybody," and know that there's U.S. presence in many countries other than Iraq.)

U.S forces in Pakistan? I don't want to think about it...

The entire War on Terror situation is one that I wish didn't exist.

As for Pakistan, direct U.S. involvement is probably not the best decision. President Musharraf's government would not profit, politically, by allowing foreign troops on Pakistani soil.

Although it shouldn't matter who is running Pakistan, President Musharraf and the United States of America appear to have a common interest in preventing the territory between Pakistan and Afghanistan from becoming a base for the likes of the Taliban and al Qaeda.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
