I think OBL's demise pretty well documented whose side they are on.

Pakistan, like all other nations is a SOVERIEGN STATE. And the US has no right violating airspace or conducting military operations on their soil without the expressed permission of their government

Yes, I know this runs afoul of the typical American arrogance that thinks all nations are the biatches of the US.

More or less this.  But would think that the billions in aid the US gives to Pakistan would allow for some terrorist hunting consideration.

To be fair, would we be comfortable with someone flying robots into our country and blowing people up on their say so alone?  Certainly if Putin were doing it, Republicans would be all for it, but most people would be pretty against it...

I think the bigger issue is that we are not coordinating with them in any meaningful way.  Using the OBL example, we didn't even tell them we would be flying a manned military mission into their country.  Bad penetration, no reach around!

Now, the other side can argue that the Pakistani military / government would have sold us out to OBL and he would have bolted... I don't think that is justification for the attack as much as it is an incentive to reappraise our relationship with Pakistan.

Wake me up when they start doing that.

They've done this before.  Make public declarations against the US air strikes while privately coordinating it and authorizing strikes.

To make it that much worse imagine the outrage if that other country accidentally killed some innocent people at the same time which happens frequently with drone strikes. Probably why you don't see any domestic strikes but on the other side of the world Hellfire missiles based on best guess intelligence are good to go.

They've essentially allowed the terrorist hunting for over a decade, it's possible that recently the US has either become more lackadaisical in minimizing civilian casualties, or has strongly given that impression, making it politically untenable for the Pakistani government to continue with the status quo.

Years and years ago, when I was attending highschool, I had a substitute religious studies teacher tell me, privately, almost verbatim the the same thing, persistent fallout and all. I didn't tell anyone else at the time, because, holy shiatthat's not something you tell a tenth grader.

Well, maybe not back then, and certainly not at a Catholic highschool.

Years later, I'll admit, I sometimes remember that statement and all its perverse, Ozymandian logic. (I often refer to it when discussing how much I loathe Montreal's infrastructure - evacuate it, remove anything of cultural value, then shwack it from orbit and rebuild it in a manner benefiting sane urban planning practices...)

So I guess what I'm saying is, Mr. Tremblant, is that you?

Huh...they will expend the considerable resources to shoot down a drone but can't lift a finger to round up, or at least roust armed militants conducting unauthorized [by Pakistan] military operations from bases in Pakistan. Awesome.

What could possibly go wrong by allowing an embedded, active, largely foreign, loosely [not really] controlled military force to operate on Pakistani soil? It's not like they might regroup and organize a real action, with the protection of Pakistan, that would then force the U.S. to openly, brazenly invade and occupy Pakistan. It's not like the U.S. hasn't done that elsewhere in the last 20 years.

Posturing and puffery are fine for Pakistan to pretend. Actually taking proactive steps to protect and aid enemies actively at war with the U.S. puts them a step closer to really being at war with the U.S.

A little chest-thumping for a few weeks from Pakistan...the U.S. will continue to strike enemies wherever they may be. It doesn't pay to tangle with the U.S., in the long run.

beezeltown: Huh...they will expend the considerable resources to shoot down a drone but can't lift a finger to round up, or at least roust armed militants conducting unauthorized [by Pakistan] military operations from bases in Pakistan. Awesome.

What could possibly go wrong by allowing an embedded, active, largely foreign, loosely [not really] controlled military force to operate on Pakistani soil? It's not like they might regroup and organize a real action, with the protection of Pakistan, that would then force the U.S. to openly, brazenly invade and occupy Pakistan. It's not like the U.S. hasn't done that elsewhere in the last 20 years.

Posturing and puffery are fine for Pakistan to pretend. Actually taking proactive steps to protect and aid enemies actively at war with the U.S. puts them a step closer to really being at war with the U.S.

A little chest-thumping for a few weeks from Pakistan...the U.S. will continue to strike enemies wherever they may be. It doesn't pay to tangle with the U.S., in the long run.


Oddly enough Ed and Al Elric were conducting unauthorized operations throughout all of the Fullmetal Alchemist episodes. Different cultures, different rules.

the US has no right violating airspace or conducting military operations on their soil

True, you should not blow people up using drones. That's what brainwashed suicide bombers are for.
Lashkar-e-Taiba was very humble when they deliberately murdered 165 hotel guests. And their leader Hafiz Muhammad Saeed is just a straight shooter with nothing to hide.

Jerusalem was the capital of Israel before Islam. Get over it.

Jerusalem is not and has never been the capital of Israel.  No country in the world recognizes it as the capital of Israel.  The international embassies are in Tel Aviv, because Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.


Israel itself  declared it was the capital in 1949. Let me guess....... you don't recognize Israel as a country

We give twice as much to Israel, and they fark us over on a daily basis.

I think the bigger issue is that we are not coordinating with them in any meaningful way.  Using the OBL example, we didn't even tell them we would be flying a manned military mission into their country.  Bad penetration, no reach around!

Now, the other side can argue that the Pakistani military / government would have sold us out to OBL and he would have bolted... I don't think that is justification for the attack as much as it is an incentive to reappraise our relationship with Pakistan.

It has NOTHING to do with Jerusalem. It has everything to do with the Jews living near arabs and intolerance being the mantra of the middle east in general. You get power by killing an enemy and your willingness to kill to protect your kind.

When Jews had been thrown out and forced to live well outside of Judea ... NO ONE lived there.
British scouts visited the area in the 1700's and described it as a desolate place without life.
When the Jews moved in again. then holy crap we have to kill them all!

Well, it is probably because the US stopped it's 300M payment to Pakistan at the end of July. That was keeping their military in line. Now Trump is going to use threats or something.

I'm sure Pakistan would have totally used all that money to fight terrorists and not to line the pockets of corrupt generals. But when the only other alternative is overtly siding with Islamic extremists, it might not be such a bad idea to keep up the status quo and keep "greasing the wheel," even if it's not going exactly where you want it to go.

2008: Obama campaigned that he would move it - never did it, no problem, yay!
2016: Trump campaigned that he would move it - did it, tears for years.

Jerusalem was the capital of Israel before Islam. Get over it.

Jerusalem is not and has never been the capital of Israel.  No country in the world recognizes it as the capital of Israel.  The international embassies are in Tel Aviv, because Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.

Israel itself  declared it was the capital in 1949. Let me guess....... you don't recognize Israel as a country


That declaration is a violation of UN General Assembly mandate 303, established that same year.
(1) the City of Jerusalem shall be established as a corpus separatum under a special international regime and shall be administered by the United Nations; (2) the Trusteeship Council shall be designated to discharge the responsibilities of the Administering Authority ...; and (3) the City of Jerusalem shall include the present municipality of Jerusalem plus the surrounding villages and towns.
The Trusteeship Council shall not allow any actions taken by any interested Government or Governments to divert it from adopting and implementing the Statute of Jerusalem.
I recognize them as country, but one that needs to be punished for their repeated violations of international law.  Instead of moving our Embassy, we should move the UN headquarters there.

SuperNinjaToad: Gubbo: genner: SuperNinjaToad: Pakistan, like any other sovereign country in the world is on Pakistan's side. I'm pretty darn sure if Pakistani drones or military assets are openly killing people (even very bad people) in DC or Walla Walla, WA. NORAD/USAF etc would be shooting them down too.

Subby's an idiot.

With that being said, no worries.. in the real world I'm sure the CIA etc is still working closely with the Pakistanis. You just won;t hear them in the 5 o clock news.

Yeah how dare Obama violate their sovereignty by having Bin Laden killed on Pakistani soil. I'm sure everyone was as equally upset by that as they are now.

He invaded a sovereign nation. Troops on the ground conducting warfare. If that had gone wrong. If OBL wasn't there. If any of a dozen things had happened.

Obama probably resigns in disgrace.

It was high risk high reward.

Exactly! ... and you can bet 100000% the Republicans would've pounce on him HARD! Obama took a HUGE political and personal risk. For that I respect him.

If OBL was anyone OTHER than OBL in that house that day, the fallout for both the POTUS and the US would've been very very significant.

Reasonable Human: It's an interesting point: at what point do lands taken in war become legitimate?

Given that there is virtually NO country on earth who's lands were not taken in war or other hostile action, there needs to be some sort of statute of limitation.

The world seems fine with recognizing Vietnam as a single country with a single capital. That is more recent than the 1967 actions in Jerusalem.

Reasonable Human: If Russia wanted to move their capital to Sevastopol (or Donetsk) would we expect the rest of the world to recognise it?

I don't see what good *not* recognizing it does. You either have peaceable relations with another country, or you don't; this isn't a buffet where you can pick and choose.

I don't disagree, there are plenty of other examples of the same issue.

It kind of is - the issue with Jerusalem, as I understand it,  is that half of it is on "occupied" land (again, how long before it's viewed as legitimate).  Trump is choosing to have improved relations with Israel at the expense of relations with Jordan (and other countries in the region).

Given that the US already had good relations with Israel (US aid is arguably the reason there is still an Israel) and working with Islamic countries is seen as vital in combating terrorism, it seems a dubious step to me.

My assumption is that the motivation is one or more of:
-Rewarding allies (you scratch my back, etc)
-Business opportunity
-Stirring up tensions in the hope of profiting from them (either politically of literally)
-Distraction theatre.

Muslims: Jerusalem belongs to Allah

Here's what I would do. Evacuate EVERYONE from Jerusalem, take all that is worthy, artifacts, historical stuff and then BOMB the crap out of it with a Nuclear bomb. Radiating the place for 100's of years.

Want Jerusalem now? Go right on ahead. Its all yours.

Its because of this farking stupid fairy tale religion shiat why there is all this terrorism in the world.

More or less this.  But would think that the billions in aid the US gives to Pakistan would allow for some terrorist hunting consideration.

Well, then take away the aid, or increase the diplomacy
I think it might be the latter rather than the former that is the real issue here


I can agree with this.  granted as far as I see it with all the homeless and people going hungry in the USA we shouldn't be giving any money to any nation for aid.  It should all stay here.  Screw them.  Ya this might mean that some people in that country might go hungry or such.


And for the record I didn't vote for Trump.  Can't stand what he has done.  But I have always though that it is stupid for us to give aid to other counties to feed/care for their people when we have so many in the USA who need that help. Once we done with our people if there is any left then send it out.

sunderland56: Psychopusher: But would think that the billions in aid the US gives to Pakistan would allow for some terrorist hunting consideration.

It might give the USA the right to *ask* if they can conduct military operations, yes. But no amount of money gives you the right to invade a foreign country and kill it's citizens without any warning.

Just imagine what Fox News would say if Pakistani troops invaded Iowa in search of some fugitive.


You have a point, but it could be argued that a condition of that monetary aid would allow the US to do just that. No operations? No money. Not an automatic thing, but negotiations could allow that explicitly.

If Osama wasn't there, Obama would have fired a general, Pakistan would have wrote a strongly worded letter to the UN and the world would have forgotten about the while thing by time the next Kardashian had a baby or something.

Yes the Republicans would have harped on Obama and probably Hillary for awhile, but then someone on the internet would come up with a catchy, ironic name like Pakistanigate  and we'd all laugh and laugh at those stupid Republicans; possibly calling them out for being hypocrites for suddenly not supporting the war on terror.

But they do have four times your population, and Brazil and Indonesia are smaller.

But take comfort:  Russians love you. You are so much better at running a country than Russians are.

Logistics.

A majority of US forces in Afghanistan are supplied by truck convoys which pass goods from ports on Pakistan to Afghanistan.
 Without those routes you can not supply the forces in country. There are no alternative routes either so its Pakistani 'trump' card.

So unless we are going to expand our 14 year war to include a nuclear armed 'ally' we have to at least pay heed to their demands.

Then we do like we did with Afghanistan and go to War. Because that's exactly what happened there when the Taliban Gov't refused to cooperate and hand over Osama bin Laden after 9/11

However, seeing as how Pakistan has nukes, and could actually do some serious damage, I don't think that's all to likely.  Better to work out some diplomacy and ASK NICELY before conducting drone strikes, or working jointly with Pakistani Forces. I understand that a lot of Americans grew up on Dirty Harry and War Movies in which lone renegades who couldn't give two farks about laws, rules and conventions go around killing anyone they please as long as they are the "bad guys" -- but that shiat is comic book fodder and in real life, is both dangerous and idiotic.

Actually back when it happened, among Americans it was mostly Republicans who were upset when Bin Laden was killed, especially Trump since his TV program was pre-empted in order for Obama to announce Laden getting killed.  Not a single Fark Republican had anything good to say about this action.
