So in the yahoo news today

Pres Obabma:
“"We are very respectful of the sovereignty of Pakistan. But we cannot allow someone who is actively planning to kill our people or our allies' people, we can't allow those kind of active plans to come to fruition without us taking some action," Obama told the BBC.

but on May 19, 2011, the 14-decade-old British newspaper, The Statesman, reported that the Chinese government has warned Washington “In unequivocal terms that any attack on Pakistan would be construed as an attack on China,” and advised the US government “to respect Pakistan’s sovereignty.”

So what IF Obama does indeed invade Pakistan to get the new leader and “Threat” to the US…

Do you think he should? First off..Spending sooo much money to go over and second HE would Piss off China who gave a clear warning not to bother Pakistan.

Just the prospect of that happing is mind-boggling and then we would have a WAR right here on US soil
And I know many on here are not from US, but we are allies with some of yall’s countries and so im sure your troops would be sent out to help our troops go to war with China.

I think he should just have his people keep in eye out for the senior al Qaeda member Mullah Omar and the rest of the Al Qaeda goon squad, and IF and WHEN he makes a move then strike..but enough with invadeing other countries... >:-{

Good fucking Lord....are you serious, Deanna?

Where do you guys get that he's starting WW3? Just because someone says this:

“"We are very respectful of the sovereignty of Pakistan. But we cannot allow someone who is actively planning to kill our people or our allies' people, we can't allow those kind of active plans to come to fruition without us taking some action,"

-does not mean we're going to war. Maybe he's talking about cutting the billions of dollars that we give them each year. Anyone ever think of that? Or the tons of other options besides, WW3.... Oy.

Let me get this straight..We ally with a nation, give them support financially and otherwise but we dare DO NOT tell them that while we respect their independence and wish not to run or rule them that if for some reason they are found supporting and harboring known enemies who are planning as well as committing acts of violence against our nation we will step in to protect ourselves by removing aid and removing the said threat as we did with Osama Bin Laden.

Does this mean that we DO NOT follow military intelligence from soldiers who are on their 3rd, 4th and 5th deployments, soldiers working night and day in dangerous situations away from their families for years at a time...that we will NOT follow any information they have secured that says a known enemy planning to kill innocents is in Pakistan. Nope let's disregard all intelligence and threats and close our eyes securely shut and NOT make the statement that tells our ally that if they want to be our ally then DON'T knowingly harbor our enemies or DON'T EVER expect us to come in and remove them. The statement that was made only reasserted the fact that Pakistan as a border nation to Afghanistan has been a gateway of protection for terrorists. If you think our military and intelligence officers have not been going into Pakistan for years already to remove threats...well then your delusional. If you don't think Pakistan is aware of U.S. military doing so then....well your even more delusional. If you think China doesn't realize the fact that we will send in specialized military units to remove enemies in Pakistan and have done so before...well once again your delusional. Obama just verbally reinstated what has already been known as standard foreign policy and standard military command concerning Pakistan. Nothing new or absurd or out of context was stated. The WW3 conclusions however well those are taking the statement and the policy far out of context.

I just have to say does anyone remember the Bush Doctrine? Funny how few freaked out about the influence that policy had on the prospects of creating a massive war.

...because Christ knows, this has only been an issue for the last 2 years....

I think we need to stop chasing potential threats all over the place. Chasing ones that actually DID something or were actively making moves to DO something was one thing...still a bit overboard, but at least justifiable. Chasing down people who *maybe*, *possibly*, *could* do something is difficult. We need to start poring those billions of dollars into our own country now.

As far as China goes....I'm really not all that concerned about them. They rely on exports to keep their economy going, this is why they refuse to allow their currency on the world exchange. To do battle with the US would be to do battle with all of the US's allies....that's a whole lot of lost exports which they can't afford to lose.

They are already battling unrest in their own country. The regions of Tibet and Xinjiang already want to secede; other regions are upset over the bulk of Chinese investment only being used in the coastal areas. China is desperately trying to pore money and settlers into those regions. They can't battle outside their country unless they want to rip it apart.

I think Obama needs to step down from office and should never have been elected to begin with. He is starting WW3 and the morons that voted for him are encouraging his anit-American antics.

Damn History repeating itself again. The last time a country warned another country not to set foot in a third country the world went to war. Do we never learn.
Janessa you are quite right there the last time was Mugabe and now Africa is stuck with someone England thought would be pliable and now they leave him to drive the rest of us crazy because no-one will touch the lunatic. You see he only killed his own people so it's not as important as say Bin Laden. it has always been the Richer countries that take the rest of us with them and makes them stupid too because they always under estimate their rival. they did in 1914 and again in 1939. I wouldn't just push China aside.

I am not sure if you all have read about whats going on around the world. But my understanding is that the average job is fighting wealthy peoples wars its been like this since begaining of time. China was really smart by pushing european attitude mind set out its countrie. That is to bad the other countries did not see that coming now look at africa. Why is it european nation and western society always choices the leaders for those countries like in africa, central,south america and parts of asia. I think wars are about greed and which is for the wealthy it is never about society as a whole. Look at ww1 that war was point less period.

I think for now, we need to step back and work on the USA instead of trying to invade other countries. We have enough problems here than making more for us. For once, unless we are attacked by them first, we need to be like Canada and be neutral for a long while until we can get our own shit straight.
