    And thank God we do not operate openly on Pakistani soil, Pakistan is already imploding (a nuclear power by the way). Our airstrikes in the area certainly are not helping Zardari maintain any form of control in the rest of Pakistan.

    All the airstrikes are doing is inflaming public opinion in Pakistan even more against the US, which backs Zardari into a corner, and could result in a more extreme regime coming to power. (in a nuclear country)

    Lemme guess.....you missed the 3rd Debate, right? :rolleyes:

    "Republican U.S. presidential candidate Sen. John McCain said on Friday he would not publicly state a policy of attacking militants in Pakistan over cross-border incursions into Afghanistan."

    There is a difference between doing and publicly stating.

    No, I make the decision that killing Bin Laden would be a major PR victory, but mean little in terms of actual operations.

    Given that, his death is not worth risking backing Zardari into a corner and inflaming anti-West passions in a nuclear armed Pakistan.

    Fair warning to who? The best operation would have been one that was kept quiet, so not to back Zardari into a corner.

    You can work together without making it known, and often times that is the best way to do it.

    Sorry.....real men don't sucker-punch.

    Only Bush-fans see any merit in (purposely) setting-people-up.....so they can sneak-up-behind-them and play bad@ss. :rolleyes:

    Then you must be opposed to the entire US intelligence community and any covert operation ever run.
