US presidential candidate Barack Obama has said he would order military action against al-Qaeda in Pakistan without the consent of Pakistan's government.

In his speech at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, in Washington, Mr Obama said General Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan's president, must do more to end terrorist operations in his country.  If not, Pakistan would risk a troop invasion and the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars of US aid during an Obama presidency, the candidate said.

I think Obama's losing it: he's said a few stupid things lately, which is a pity because I hate Hilary Clinton with a passion.

Slinga, Rooster and Cameron I agree with you.  It's a bad idea, it's BS and he's losing it.  Oh, and I hate Hillary too.

I must say I'm kinda disappointed.  He seemed like a change for the US, but he's showing he's just another politician, who only cares about his own agenda.

Look, I'm a neo-con, but even I know if we invade Pakistan that it would destabilize Musharrif and collapse his government.  What's worst about Pakistan is that if it goes to shit like Iraq its not car bombs we have to worry about, it'll be nuclear missiles.

At the moment though Pakistan and India have each pointed the nukes at each other and haven't considered using them on anyone else. I wouldn't give them an excuse!

Don't worry about the black/women democrate candidates. Our country is too racist/sexist to get them into office (they won't get the all-important southern vote). Instead let's get a weasly Rupublican in so they can continue the costly iraq war and let more illegals in to repay the corporations fot their "contributions." [If you can't tell either way were fucked]

If Marsharrf didn't have a chance of loosing power over his country, then I would have no problem attacking Northwestern Pakistan, but compound that with the fact the country has nukes...well then you can see where there is worry.


What's kewl is that since a Democrat suggested this then it'll get played up by the press.  I wonder if Bush DID go into Pakistan that Obama would get the credit?

You know, Pakistan would never nuke the U.S., primarily because they don't have a missile capable of reaching it, nor the naval or aerial vehicles capable of delivering a shorter ranged missile.

Additionally, even if they could, the threat of nuclear annihilation from the U.S. would prevent this from happening.

shame. I always thought Obama was one of the better candidates. Not that it matters, since I won't be able to vote anyway.

Then again, with the impact US foreign policy usually has on the rest of the world, I am kind of concerned about the notion of the US attacking Pakistan. After all, Bush has done a lot over the years to fund and support this military dictatorship that Musharraf calls a democracy, all in the effort to building up a coalition against insurgents operating in the pakistani-afghani border region, and stop the flow of supplies and manpower across the border.

THe idea that his potential successor would want to jeopardize those efforts, through miliotary action against Pakistan, thereby strenghtening terrorist activities in that country, is quite disturbing, tbh.
