    Americans are realizing the real face of Pakistani Army. Hope they will do the right thing in breaking the neck of PA.

    Obama's War

    Thought that this deserved a thread of its own.

    Following is a PBS documentary that aired recently regarding the new direction that the war inside Afghanistan is taking. About 40% of the 55 minute program is dedicated to Pakistan's role in the war, and by most assessments of US and Afghan officials, Pakistan is not exactly acting as an "ally". The Director of the Afghan spy agency, KHAD, was also interviewed, and you can see how enraged he is at the Pakistanis.

    What might be the next steps in the Afghan war? Would the US be able to free itself of its dependence on Pakistan to maintain peace in Afghanistan? Will Pakistan finally decide that sponsoring or financing any terrorist groups cannot form a long term security policy? Will India finally send troops to Afghanistan to help the overstretched and overburdened ISAF? Or will we sit back and watch as NATO leaves Afghanistan and it falls into disarray again under the control of Pakistan's ISI and the Taliban?
