    Pakistan is calling for cuts in the U.S. military personnel inside the country after U.S. Navy SEALs killed Usama bin Laden in his Pakistan compound -- without Pakistan's help or prior knowledge.

    The siege has only increased the strain on relations between the two countries, as some U.S. lawmakers are calling for cuts to the $1.3 billion in U.S. aid to Pakistan for its failure to locate bin Laden. The Al Qaeda leader was found and killed in a large $1 million compound in an army town not far from the capital of Islamabad. Lawmakers have suggested Pakistan was either too incompetent to catch bin Laden or was complicit in protecting him.

    And when the government collapses and their nukes fall into the hands of the Taliban, and Bagram AB is destroyed with 10,000+ US Military dead?

    Not quite as simple as that.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Not what you are suggesting he do, which is probably for the best.

    We may not like Pakistan's government, but they are all that is standing between the crazies, and nuclear weapons.

    We cut off all their support, and shit can go real bad, real fast.

    how do you know they don't already have a bomb supplied by Pakistan. or for that matter Iran ??? I have this habit of always assuming the worst. Pakistan and the crazies are the same blood and religion.

    EXACTLY. People don't think these things through - they just have these knee jerk reactions without considering the consequences.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
