Everybody loves a winner
The Prairie Pundit notices a Guardian article which claims the Pakistani Army is no longer fighting al-Qaeda.
The Pakistani army is paralysed by the growing Taliban threat and some retired officers are covertly aiding the militants, according to a former CIA officer. ... "Their approach was to pretend that nothing was wrong because any other approach would reveal that they were unwilling and unable to do anything about Talibanisation," said Mr Keller, who has visited Waziristan.
This sounds a lot like the late and unlamented Palestinian Authority and its efforts to crack down on militants. Gateway Pundit says, "The US is not getting its money's worth out of Pakistan in the fight with al Qaeda." Now who was it who said Iraq and the War on Terror were just like Vietnam, where one could walk away without suffering any long-term consequences?
