They must not have read the memo, those drones are community activist sanctioned. They will not harm children soldiers.

Dose anyone think that China and Russia might object to the US/NATO takeover of more middle eastern countries? US foreign military adventures go WAY beyond protecting the US., and are bankrupting the economy while making more new enemies.

The old enemies will not stand and take the first round, they will watch the casualties drop and then move in.

Quite interesting your statement, yes I believe that will be the case also. Kinda reminds me of the movie "Jurassic Park", the scene where the gatekeeper lets the girl biologist make a run for it. He sees the raptor to his left and says "Clever Girl" and another pounces on him. All about silent tactics......

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says that US created Taliban and abandoned Pakistan. Hillary Clinton acknowledged that the United States too had a share in creating the problem that plagues Pakistan today.
problems we face now to some extent we have to take responsibility for, having contributed to it. We also have a history of kind of moving in and out of Pakistan, she said.

Lets remember here the people we are fighting today we funded them twenty years ago and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union.

They invaded Afghanistan and we did not want to see them control Central Asia and we went to work and it was President Reagan in partnership with Congress led by Democrats who said you know what it sounds like a pretty good idea lets deal with the ISI and the Pakistan military and lets go recruit these mujahideen.

And great, let them come from Saudi Arabia and other countries, importing their Wahabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union.

And guess what they (Soviets) retreated they lost billions of dollars and it led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

So there is a very strong argument which is it wasnt a bad investment in terms of Soviet Union but lets be careful with what we sow because we will harvest
