Pakistan Harasses American DiplomatsDecember 16, 2009 at 8:41 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
Probably trying to send a message of disappointment and disapproval with Obama’s policy vis a vis the Taliban and Al-Qaeda (who have extensive ties btw with Pakistan’s intelligence agency), Pakistan is harassing American diplomats.
In a tit for tat, the obvious answer is to send warnings to Pakistan’s military that it might start losing some American funding, but that is of course counterproductive and childish (something a Bushian would do). The best answer to show America is serious is just to keep on going. I fear, however, that we will lose Pakistan, and that is about the worst thing that could happen.
