US Threatened to bomb Pakistan...

Apparently the US threatened to bomb Pakistan if they did not support the war to depose the Taliban in Afghanistan. Yeah, ok conspiracy theory bullshit. Well, not so as the person who has claimed this is Pakistan's own President Pervez Musharraf!

That's going to do wonders for the credibility of the Western World! (and yes, I know it was the States who threatened Pakistan but in todays climate what the States does is unfortunately reflected on the entirety of the 'western' world in the eyes of many...)

Maybe the question we SHOULD be asking is if the USA made the same offer to Tony Blair??

I happened to be hanging with a few pakinstani guys at the time, who where really sweet folks.

There where BIG problems over communicating between the USA & the Taliban as the USA where apparently not reading cultural differences in the communications.

I susspect that somthing similar would thus happen with Pakistan...
