US will strike Pakistan if needed

The Obama administration has inherited "a real mess" in Afghanistan and an increase in US casualties is likely as troops try to reclaim territory, Vice-President Joe Biden said on Sunday.

Pakistan Observer

The members of the Upper House of the Parliament on Monday demanded of the government to assert full energies for putting the drone attacks in the tribal areas to an end.

President Obama’s interview with al-Arabiya television is remarkable in several ways, but what strikes me the most is that it coincided with the first air strikes on Pakistan under his administration: 22 people were killed, including between four and seven Taliban/al-Qaeda bad guys. In the Arabiya interview, Obama was at his charming best, and the easily charmed were bowled over. Andrew Sullivan, for example, fairly swooned, and announced it’s ‘about the same thing as inviting Rick Warren or supping with George Will: it’s about R-E-S-P-E-C-T.’ What would you say if the police came into your neighborhood to confront reported criminals, killed a few — and also managed to knock off 18 or so bystanders? Would you say this shows the police respect the neighborhood?
