Washington, Jul 21 (PTI) Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has warned Pakistan saying his administration will strike at al-Qaeda targets there if Washington gets "actionable intelligence" on the presence of terror groups...I didn't realize it was current doctrine to drop bombs on nuclear powers because we don't like who's camping within their borders. Maybe we're just going to invade them instead. I mean, you've got to be sure there are no terrorists in other people's countries, and while dropping bombs from planes looks like a lot of fun, it seldom affects anything in areas where wealth is measured in goats but the goats. I have to admit, that does follow the Democratic habit of only using American force where it cannot possibly do us any good. This is in complete contrast to the Republican habit of using it where it could theoretically do us good before completely blowing the opportunity.
"I think actually this is current doctrine. There was some dispute when I said this last August. Both the administration and some of my opponents suggested, well, you know, you shouldn't go around saying that. But I don't think there's any doubt that it should be our policy and will continue to be our policy... I don't think there is going to be a change there."
But hey, if that's the current doctrine, then in some weird Progressive Logic*, it's going to be a worthwhile change to go from invading enemies to invading allies. I'm sure that will work out just fine. The Pakistanis will just have to get used to hordes of infidel American soldiers crawling all over their villages searching for Muslims who hate infidel American soldiers; after all, we've got actionable intelligence**.
I suspect that before we're done, finding Muslims who hate American soldiers will be a significantly easier task.
