Red Mosque Redux, Taliban or Al Qaeda – Pakistan At Risk

Fresh paint on the shrine’s outer wall reads Lal Masjid, meaning Red Mosque

Pro-Taliban fighters have seized control of a mosque and shrine in the Mohmand area of Pakistan’s North West Frontier province and renamed it the Red Mosque. The tribesmen have expressed support for Abdul Rashid Ghazi, the leader of Islamabad’s Lal Masjid, or Red Mosque, killed in a government assault last month.

Before he was killed in the raid on Lal Masjid, Ghazi warned that after his death there would be many more Red Mosques.

Obama willing to invade Pakistan in al-Qaeda hunt

Standing in front of a Stars and Stripes flag, Mr Obama said: “There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again . . . If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won’t act, we will.”

“Because of a war in Iraq that should never have been authorised and should never have been waged, we are now less safe than we were before 9/11. It is time to turn the page. It is time to write a new chapter in our response to 9/11,” he said.

Whether or not the US gets to resume it’s original mission to hunt down the operatives of 9/11, the game has changed. Obama’s attempt to bring attention to our failing to pursue Osama may be out of sync with our current situation. If he had only addressed relocating troops to home or to Afghanistan first, I would be much more impressed. His statements were too transparent as a response to Hillary’s war agenda. If we allow Musharraf to be dethroned, we had better have someone in the wings to replace him. As much as I want Osama and gang caught, this will doom Musharraf and the safety of his nukes.

Saber rattling does not become you Mr. Obama. Please resume your role to be above it all and find common ground to become the uniter we so desperately need. Accountability is what is missing from our world. Arrogance is no longer fashionable. Abuse of privilege must be outlawed. The GOP cannot be defeated if Democrats take their eyes off the ball.

Clinton Demurs On Obama’s Nuclear Stance

She Says It Is Unwise to Rule Out Using the Arms Against Terrorists

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton drew another distinction between herself and Sen. Barack Obama yesterday, refusing to rule out the use of nuclear weapons against Osama bin Laden or other terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Clinton’s comments came in response to Obama’s remarks earlier in the day that nuclear weapons are “not on the table” in dealing with ungoverned territories in the two countries, and they continued a steady tug of war among the Democratic presidential candidates over foreign policy.

Where are we going with this?
