Events of recent weeks and the culmination of all I have read on Palistan leads me to believe something major is going to happen before November. Pakistan is handing territory after territory over to the Taliban. http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2008/07/pakistan_cedes_hangu.php http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2008/07/taliban_control_of_m.php They say there are preconditions ... like no terorist attacks but that's a bunch of crap. Now ... here's the big one: Afghanistan looks like it will be a modern day Vietnam. Fighting with just enough force to supress the enemy but not enough force to knock them out ... that's how we lost all our fine troops in Vietnam ... not trying to win. In any case ... this issue either awaits our next President or something major will happen before November to help McCain ... What if the Taliban tries to take over Pakistan to gain nukes? How do you see it? http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2008/07/pakistan_signs_peace_1.php Pakistan signs another peace accord in Orakzai. Orakzai goes red. Red agencies/ districts are controlled by the Taliban; purple districts areunder de facto Taliban control; yellow regions are under Taliban influence.
