Remember "sovereignty"?

Ah, those were the days.

Please read this essay by an American Muslim of Pakistani origin. For those of you who haven't been keeping up, the Pakistani army was recently issued orders to fire upon American soldiers who cross into Pakistan. This followed many raids, bombings, missile strikes etc inside Pakistan's territory, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Pakistani civilians. One of the latest killed something like 50 villagers, none of whom were, um, terrorists.

This little bit of brilliance puts it all in perspective.

On the other hand, who cares? It's just more "collateral damage" in the "war on terror"...

Pakistan must be tired of their "guests". They are allowing US "Advisors" in to train troops in anti-insurgent methods.

Any chance for a book tour in Texas? The weather is pretty nice in the winter down here.


Hi Chris!

Advisors? Hmm, reminds me of some other country we tried that with, in the '60s... can't remember the name... Didn't work out too well as I recall.

Texas, huh? Hey, I'll try anything once. And now that Tony Romo's busted his hand, there may be more interest in reading books this fall. Heh heh.
