U.S. Military Action Against Pakistan
That’s what was missing — the United States doesn’t have quite enough wars to get quagmired in. Let’s see, who’s been looking at us funny — Pakistan!
Senator Lindsey Graham (R—Armchair Warrior) said the U.S. should consider military action against Pakistan if their government continues to support terrorist attacks in Afghanistan:
“The sovereign nation of Pakistan is engaging in hostile acts against the United States and our ally Afghanistan that must cease.”
He said the U.S. might need to “elevate its response” and that “all options” should be considered.
OK, time to dust off the pre-Iraq invasion playbook: Pakistan has Weapons of Mass Destruction! Most of the 9/11 hijackers were from Pakistan. Etc.
Hmmm, now wasn’t there something about a huge deficit that was about to engulf the whole country? Some sort of “crushing debt” that our great-grandchildren’s great-grandchildren will still be paying for? An international financial crisis that was just about to derail the global economy?
Oh well, that was yesterday. Now, suddenly we’ve got a few hundred spare billions lying around, just waiting to be used for our next invasion.
Maybe the “deficit hawks” and “Austerians” could get together with the armchair warmongers; as in “right hand, meet the left hand.”
