How ridiculous to call it Bush's War, when it is and was supported by the leading war criminals from both parties, and their media machine, since the beginning through the expansion and planned expansions.

and these, in the words of Saint Obama, are baby steps. i wonder what his real manly steps would be?

'tactical' nuclear attack on karachi or lahore? US marines patrolling the streets of islamabad?

by all accounts, there is a lot of insurgent activity in pakistan, but one would hope that the way to deal with that was to encourage stability and offer the prospect of peace and inclusive development, and maybe help the nascent democratic setup survive.

almostinfamous; They've got George Bush and Dick Cheney on their side. (Of course the world's oldest democracy, USA, has yet to survive George Bush and Dick Cheney)

Yes your State Department officials with briefcases full of cash and you heroic brave troopers affect real people. As do the MIC who end up with billions from both sides. And when I say both sides I mean every side. Maybe I should make that trillions.

I don't think the reaction is gonna be pretty if average Americans start realizing the real flow of cash from their labor and taxes.
