v2micca: I honestly can't believe it took them this long to finally put their foot down.  The U.S. has been conducting drone strikes in their airspace for over a decade, selecting targets on the intelligence that is questionable at best, and caring very little about collateral damage.  Pakistan is a Sovereign nation and has the right to protect its boarders.


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.

manhole: KarmicDisaster: sithon: What, you didn't think recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's Capital would have consequences did you? Trump has pissed off the entire Muslim world

Well, I'm Pretty Sure that is the idea Bannon had in doing this.

1999: Hillary campaigned that she would push for relocation of embassy - never did it, no problem, yay!
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.

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


This.  I mean, for fark's sake people.  Enough of the "but but ...terrorists!" - we farking made them.  They are our creation.   Do we think we're going to bomb them into submission, while disregarding sovereignty of our allies?  We don't think that will be a problem when the children of today are the adults of tomorrow?

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.

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.

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.

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.


Sure.  We'll tell Pakistan to go fark itself and start slumming around with... ... ...

Obama didn't kill OBL with a drone.. apples/oranges.

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.


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!

So who gets to decide where the capital of a country is?

 (b) A random selection of other countries

Personally I think that London is the capital of the USA, since it's just an upstart colony, and I don't recognize their choice of a new capital.

Emergency medical care, shifting the burden from their inability to get Medicaid coverage.

Apparently, more potent than you...


Good God!  You mean they almost get out of the system what they are paying into it?  You know, through state taxes and social security payments they'll never reap?

You're a halfwit, boy.  Seriously.  You did your best and let me laugh even harder...

Sad, is your reading comprehension skills.

And your lack of examples makes you look stupid, boy.

Child, stop trying to be so defensive in a vain attempt to save face.

And, still no examples.  Kind of ineffectual, aincha?

Unsurprisingly, an imbecile like you would miss the fact that they shouldn't be here, and therefore, not paying into the system anyway

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.

They've been coming here for over a hundred years.  Only recently did Republicans decide to blame their poor economies on them.  Idiots buy it.  Intelligent people think for themselves...

sunderland56: DarkVader: 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.

So who gets to decide where the capital of a country is?
 (a) The country itself
 (b) A random selection of other countries

Personally I think that London is the capital of the USA, since it's just an upstart colony, and I don't recognize their choice of a new capital.


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

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

/OK, bad example, given how the US is about Russia at the mo'.
