You know it would be easy to just say lets teach Pakistan a lesson, since I seriously doubt these attacks could have taken place without the Pakistan government knowing about them. Like most things these days nothing seems very simple or straight forward. It’s probably why we can’t make much progress in foreign affairs. We can’t define or point to the problem and when it’s right in front of us we can’t acknowledge it for fear of insulting someone.
If Pakistan truly can’t control the roads into Afghanistan then we really should rethink our relationship with them.
I understand the Pakistanis are miffed at the cross border operations that killed more terrorist however to shut down a supply route and then allow the fuel trucks to be destroyed certainly should show us what kind of allies we have there. Not that this is news…….
