Biden: Stabilizing Pakistan Long-Term Goal of Afghan Troop Surge

Mullen warns of tough Afghan fight

I am certainly glad to at least hear that stabilizing Pakistan "securing their nukes" is our long term goal!

Biden: Stabilizing Pakistan Long-Term Goal of Afghan Troop Surge

As you know I was dead against adding more troops as I thought we should concentrate on the border and help Pakistan who does want their sovereignty and I still feel that way but I now realize Afghanistan is important but not the way in which we all perceive it.

As you know, we have discussed many times JSOC is the military's chief terrorists hunting squad and has units now operating in Afghanistan on Pakistan's western border and in Pakistan. 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 a Plan to Secure Pakistan Nukes if Country Falls to Taliban

I now believe Afghanistan is just step a domino headed towards Pakistan and her nuclear weapons. That I believe is the threat of Afghanistan falling into extremist hands as it is increasingly obvious to me that getting Pakistan’s nukes is the ultimate goal of the Taliban, Al Qaeda, militants, whatever you want to call them.

That would put us in a situation the entire world better be extremely concerned about and why NATO if right to step up and Russia and China better step up.

* I am hearing we are on our way out of Iraq and Afghanistan or so some might think but just wait to see what 18 months brings. I keep hearing a stupid saying attributed to the Taliban “you have the watches but we have the time” Hell most do not know what a watch is and we better make the time. Like it or not we are stuck with this fight not for Afghanistan’s Government but for the security of Pakistan’s nukes!

Pakistan has been a hotbed of extremists since Partition in 1948, but in recent years it's almost become an industry. A lot of the Islamic Madrassas are based there, lots of you boys being taught to hate the West, the movie Syriana highlighted the problem very well. It's becoming harder to know who is trying to kill you. Of course all our past indiscretions, British, American and Russian are at the root of the problem.

Holte it is an industry and the many Madrassas are the factories!

So we'll have to bring war to Pakistan, so that we can grab the nukes, just in case we bring war to Pakistan?
