As Pakistan gets closer to the edge JSOC is prepared to secure their Nukes as we get closer to total chaos!
US changes commander in Afghanistan
Can Gates Turn It Around?
As New Strikes Against Taliban Are Expected
I am really torn here. Knowing the average Pakistani citizen wants peace and will defend their country to the death as we would I am very concerned with the latest developments in Pakistan. They had to be purposely divulged I will have to say to at least feign cooperation by Obama but once again have to wonder about the wisdom of divulging certain capabilities or intentions.
Knowing a thousand plus so called militants have been killed since this clean up began and the military will continue its attacks on mountainous towns not yet touched along with promised increased drone attacks by the US I have to wonder. Last year there was a total of 36 US drone attacks and at 18 already Obama is well on his way to proving he will stay Bush's course in too many ways as you all know. Bombs tear through parts of Pakistan as Offensive kills 1000+ alleged militants
First I have to say sharing Drone information is not a first. We have tried it before. We found out the hard way that the Taliban knew what we were going to do as there were sympathizers inside the Government who warned the militants ahead of time. That was 3 years ago! I think we just proposed to do the same thing under a different guise.
Supposedly Obama is not going to tell them where the drones are going or going to be but isn't giving Pakistan real time video feed one and the same? Militants will know where the drones are and be able to prepare what they perceive as the target area, installing civilians as they do and in fleeing the area themselves. I am sorry! I think giving Pakistan their own drones as they want will somehow work against us as has already proven to be the case if things are not kept close to the vest. I think this is a mistake but we will soon find out as In a First, US Provides Pakistan With Drone Data
I do not seem to agree with much of what Obama is doing today as when all is said and done Obama is doing the same thing Bush did and except for his perceived desire to help average Americans he is proving to me to be a third Bush term. Maybe this merely shows how naive Obama was as a candidate and we were to think he could do it and now he is in the unenviable position to have to dis his base in the face of a growing reality.
The plan is a detailed plan to secure Pakistan's Soviet style mobile nuclear force if it appears they are in danger of falling into the hands of Al Qaeda, the Taliban, or any other "perceived" militants. Key word perceived! American intelligence sources say the operation would be conducted by Joint Special Operations Command, the super-secret commando unit headquartered at Fort Bragg, N.C
At least for me until now JSOC and what they are doing in Pakistan and Afghanistan has not been divulged. I do not know if it is wise or not but Obama has let this out of the bag too. JSOC is the military's chief terrorists hunting squad and has units now operating in Afghanistan on Pakistan's western border.
A secondary mission is to secure foreign nuclear arsenals. As you know the mission has taken on added importance in recent months, as Islamic extremists have taken territory close to the capital of Islamabad and could destabilize Pakistan's shaky democracy. Pakistan appears to be holding off the Taliban threat thus the threat of the US too feel the need to act on defending their Nukes. Just in case the US Has Plan to Secure Pakistan Nukes if Country Falls to Taliban
Knowing that we have now put out to the world that we have a plan to secure Pakistan's nukes that was set up in 2004 I have to think that first this is the reason Pakistan was finally compelled to take on the Taliban more forcefully. It also makes me wonder what the hell are we thinking? We know what Sovereignty is. We know how important the nukes are to Pakistan! We have to know when all is said and done that all sides in Pakistan, civilian, Taliban, Al Qaeda, whatever, will come together and take on the outsiders us! What will the future bring to Pakistan and the US?
