And so it is: the terrorists are virtually nickle-and-diming us to death on the front lines! Their mastery of the bottom line probably has the average Harvard MBA mumbling in admiration. This is upsetting beyond words. Brave souls are thwarted by bureaucracies. Over and over the terrorists have demonstrated that they can achieve their ends by bankrupting us. Yet we respond by continually short-changing the very people who put their lives on the line every minute of every day! The US trembles at the mere mention of a recession. And yet, what will the world economy be worth if the front lines continue to be eroded? Let's fortify our brave allies! What other strategy is worth a damn?! While nervous hippies in the West cut back on exotic groceries and get-aways, the dirt-poor soldier on the front-lines is counting his pennies to buy a few bullets! Who is protecting whom?!

We gave Pakistan $10,000,000,000.00 to fight terrorist/terrorism. If they used the money to fight terrorism instead of lining pockets of politicians and filling the general fund. < :-)

Nothing surprising, even military personnel refuse to fight in Waziristan. So, if U.S. is shy of recognising Pak as 'Terror State" alteast rename Pakistan as 'Taliban State'

Yo Aday, you know what? I agree with you. What happened to that money? With that amount, why the hell can't they pay the police better.

I thought free elections and democracy were going to solve all of Pakistan's problems.

Another challenge is waiting for Pre. Obama and Clinton and Gates.

"I thought free elections and democracy were going to solve all of Pakistan's problems."

Only in the tiny minds that said the same for Afghanistan and Iraq.
