Deadly Embrace: Pakistan, America, and the Future of Global Jihad. Please read this article and any others you can find on the issue.
My goodness the threat of more world-wide drama that concerns our military and NATO is an ever-increasing issue and yet the White House and Democratic party is hell-bent on gutting the defense budget. I posted another article today on Face Book on going to war with China. Russia is threatening us and our “leaders” are taking it, plus we all know the issues with Iran and in a way these countries are all tied together. This is not going to be pretty and those who are going to suffer the most are; our military troops and civilians in these other countries, maybe even within our own country. Why are Americans so ready to blame America for the worlds woes and so quick to want to bury their heads in the sand, wishing and hoping the violence and evil in the rest of the world was just a figment of their imagination? I guess it is easier to blame a country that gives you the right to vent at it and will pacify you with whatever you want to hear to make you “feel” safe just for your vote. A vote to keep them safe in their authoritative positions even if the crap hits the fan; the ones left to pay for it will be those willing to give up their rights to keep their false sense of security, those willing to risk their lives for our freedom, and those in foreign countries who just want to lives their lives and/or fight for their freedoms.
Pakistan is an ugly vicious cycle of enabling those who would offer a sense of help for diplomatic pull and millions of dollars in aid, to turn around and use it to enable their own conflict with India and to support terrorists who are over there killing innocent civilians and our troops. I would hope Americans could see that America although not a perfect super power, is far better than those who are trying to take its place.
