Dov Zakheim Sez: Let's Get Ruthless with the Pakis
The following from Dov "Missing Pentagon Trillion$" Zakheim's blog:
"Pakistan in 2009 is looking more and more like Iran thirty years earlier, when the seemingly impregnable Shah fell in the face of hostile demonstrations and a passive army."
"The United States cannot afford to stand by and let Pakistan either fall to the Taliban or fragment in some way."
"Instead of trying to play politics in Islamabad, the United States should employ its forces to support those of Pakistan's military....Now is not the time for squeamishness or political correctness...The Zardari government may howl that America has sidestepped it by going directly to the military...Let them howl...Time is running out. The United States must act now."
