Here is an additional piece of information that kind of lead me to draw an idea about our strategy for Pakistan.
Pentagon: Double funds for Pakistani force - USATODAY.com
We are not talking about Pakistan's military here; check it out:
"The Pentagon wants to nearly double the funding to train and equip a Pakistani paramilitary force, saying the locally-based fighters"
"We believe that, particularly in this part of Pakistan, it is more effective to work with a force raised from locals than it is to work with the (Pakistan) army, who is not viewed with the same respect in that part of the country as is the Frontier Corps," Morrell said.
And he adds:
"I don't think we would be proceeding with a plan of this nature, at this cost, unless we had some degree of confidence that it would be fruitful," Morrell said, describing the program as a joint venture with the Pakistani government.
So when is the coup? When do we get our man in that place? You know like a Saddam JR but a good behaving Saddam of course
