This is a lead up to war with Pakistan. This administration blames Pakistan officials for knowing about Bin Laden (who has been dead since 2001 from complications from Malfran disease) and the constant drone attacks against civilians in the northwest border area.

No Pakistan has requested the US to stop these incursions on their soverignity. Has the US complied? Nope, the Obama administration has refused these requests.

Now Pakistan is running to China and Russia for help.

We are about to enter into another war because the American Empire wishes it. And its not the people who truly beleive we live in a Republic. It is these so called people elected officials that were not elected but selected by the bankers who are making a profit from these wars.

If the military is tired, suck it up, next step. Pakistan then Syria.

Gates is right but what are we going to do about it now?

Not Much.
This is a political Hot Potato for both sides.

Pakistan's fragile gov cannot be seen as American Puppets and Obamacrats will do or say anything for a Photo-Op.

Ron Paul: U.S. may try to occupy Pakistan
GOP 2012 hopeful Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) thinks U.S. troops will soon be on the ground for an occupation of Pakistan — and he said so on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday morning.

Paul called America's relationship with Pakistan "an impossible situation," where the U.S. hailed both its friendship with and suspicion of the country.

"I think we are going to be in Pakistan, I think that's going to be our next occupation, and I fear it," Paul said. "It's ridiculous. I think our foreign policy is such we don't need to be doing this."

Paul said he had no inside information on Congress authorizing or ordering troops to invade Pakistan. He simply said based on U.S. history, he wouldn't be surprised to see further U.S. involvement there.

The fact that there were high officials in the Pakistani government that knew about and helped harbor Osama bin Laden makes President Obama’s successful strategy, planning and outcome of his single-handedly killing Bin Laden that much more remarkable.

The brilliant and strong leadership that our Commander-in-Chief displayed throughout this mission to find and kill Bin Laden will be marveled at and discussed by historians, political observers, High school and college students for centuries.

Pakistan doesn't trust us but will take our BILLIONS when Blbama gives it away.

Pakistan will be forging closer bonds with soon-to-be #1 Econoimic Super Power China since they are not "Fair Weather Friends" according to the Paks.

Deciphering Obama’s mideast speech (LIE DETECTOR)

Administration officials say they have tried to tackle each uprising in a deliberate fashion, with a response tailored to the situation in each particular country. But the administration in many ways has reaped the worst of all possible outcomes from its approach. Many reports from the region suggest that ordinary Arabs are disappointed in the U.S. response to the uprisings, and believe Obama was too slow to abandon autocrats such as Hosni Mubarak.

Yet at the same time, some of the U.S.’s closest allies--including Saudi Arabia--feel betrayed at the U.S.’s decision to cut Mubarak loose, leading to a deep chill in relations.

People in the Middle East will also be listening closely to how the president addresses the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Talks that Obama launched with great fanfare last September lasted barely a month, and his peace envoy, former Sen. George Mitchell, just resigned. Palestinians are pressing ahead with their own plan to win recognition as a state from the United Nations--a move Obama opposes--and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will meet with Obama tomorrow.

INTERACTIVE MAP: Click here to see our continuous coverage of the mideast protests.

As the president speaks, we will try to provide some guidance and context to his words.

UPDATE: 12:25 p.m.

Quite a mutual admiration society between Obama and Clinton at the start of the speech, almost overdoing it. It may seem hard to remember, but they were bitter rivals in the 2008 campaign.

Obama completely overstates Clinton’s mileage. He says she is approaching 1 million frequent miles, when in fact she is just over 500,000 as of May 16, according to the State Department Web site. It took Condoleezza Rice, the current recordholder, almost four years to reach 1 million miles.

In other words, Obama LIED again...

POLL: Recent college grads sour on Obama...WELL JOINT THE CROWD.

DEBT CEILING? Obama calls for billions of dollars in aid to Egypt, Tunisia, Pakistan...SOMEBODY TAKE THIS IDIOT'S CREDIT CARD AWAY FROM HIM.

Washington (CNN)– As the U.S. military campaign in Libya approaches the 60-day mark this Friday, six Republican senators wrote President Obama asking if he will comply with the War Powers Act, which says Congress must authorize action that lasts more than 60 days.

Netanyahu fumes at call to return to '67 borders...I WILL STAND WITH THE MUSLIMS......AND TERRORIST.

...TO OBAMA: TAKE IT BACK.......OBAMA TO ALIES........screw you.

NYT: Bibi's furious phone call with Hillary...
