WAR: Bombs Away, George

Will the U.S. send troops to Pakistan if we can pinpoint bin Laden's location there? Of course, the question assumes we're not already fighting there and don't already at least strongly suspect what general region he's in.

Going openly into Waziristan is diplomatically sensitive, so it's not surprising that it's taken a long time and a protracted dance of demonstrated futility before we go there. But sooner or later it's going to be necessary, and the past few months' events there seem to say sooner.

It would makemore strategic sense for bin Laden to hide under the rocks in Pakistan, since we already have troops in Arghanistan. Sadly, it makes a good October surprise ploy, but publicly getting him is a better end.

I find it interesting that after 9/11 the US told Pakistan that if they didn't cooperate they would be "bombed back into the Stone Age". Maybe that message should have been sent to Iran.
