When I respond, or seek responses, I think of the Internet Republic and the people [[whump]] and the places who have made our water world Eden brave and free and fair. Permitted, required, and impossible. Stand alone or stand with, whose choice to what degree [[Thn/]] O[[thn/]]ne water world Eden under "We the people" – created by whom?

Redcoat mercenaries vs. “Minute Men” revolutionaries

by hundreds of soldiers.

The meetings yielded a list of about 30 possible responses

xref: 3, re: old, new, and third tests. xref: 10 re: pro-formas and ‘we can do business with you’.

, according to a senior official who was briefed on the deliberations — everything from withdrawing the Islamabad ambassador, to a flurry

of intensified drone attacks on Haqqani targets in Pakistan’s tribal belt, to American or Afghan commando raids on Haqqani hide-outs in the same area.

Descending into gang / tribal warfare vs. securing the perimeter of a safe haven and role model-ing islam and peaceful tribal life styles at their best. It is so boring and difficult to secure a preimeter, who all prefer the excitement of “hot man on man pursuit” [sound]; xref: the latent animus – animus attraction of man on man warfare vs. the animus – anima attitude of ‘zone’ defense.

“We looked at the A to Z of how to get the Pakistanis’ attention,”

xref: who is the alpha and omega

the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity, as did other American and Pakistani officials interviewed about the issue.

Yet there were no easy answers. Officials concluded that most options ran the risk of setting off a wider conflict with Pakistan’s nuclear-armed military.

Why? Why would Pakistan risk spending it’s nuclear assets on a few strikes and then be in a position where only conventional weapons would be left to defend themselves from India and the US? Is the US afraid dirty bombs already sneaked into the US by Pakistan would be used here?

“It came down to the fact that there wasn’t much we could do,” the official said. Other senior officials confirmed the broad details of his account; many noted that most contingency plans are never transformed into actions.

xref: increasing number of ‘security’ jobs which are actually non-productive welfare programs which pay whom to do what citizens are expected to do while they do productive jobs; xref; “Minute Men”, “Concord Bridge and the shot heard round the world”, etc.

At the heart of the conundrum is the Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate, or ISI, and its new chief, General Islam.

xref: you CK

He is a largely unknown quantity in Washington, and much of this week’s trip is likely to focus on relationship building with American officials, including the director of the C.I.A., David H. Petraeus.

an alumnus of Princeton University and former U.S. military commander in charge of Iraq and Afghanistan under whom Stanley Chrystal quit via “Rolling Stone” magazine, and who was then demoted to field commander, and finally promoted up to CIA director, normally a civilian position, to move you, Leon Panetta, from Director of CIA over to Secretary of Defense, vacated by you, [door] Robert Gates.

But the tone has already been set by Congress: in the past month, both the House and the Senate have passed bills that urge Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to designate the Haqqani network a “foreign terrorist organization.”

Absolutely no chance who is steering Haqqani to sustain justification of US presence? Notice mission creep? From one celebrity villain, to tribal conflict mediator role, to nation building….

“The Haqqani network is engaged in a reign of terror,” said Representative Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. “Now is the time for action, not simply paperwork and talk.”

Exactly what whom in the US military wants. Sufficient cause to justify action.
The US is currently supporting a system in Afghanistan in which the central federal government appoints the governors of each province. This is exactly the reason the US used to justify our revolution against England in 1776 – “No taxation without representation,”
The US is behaving more like the red coats of King George III, and the tribal people of Afghanistan and Pakistan are behaving more like the minute men and swamp fox of the American revolution.
The inability of the US to control our own borders, or secure perimeters of tribal lands is the difference between letting local self determination control an area vs. stirring up a hornet’s nest which justifies genocide against whom is most resistant.
