    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Let's invade Pakistan, wipe out Al-Queda and be done with it! We might even kill Osama in the process.

    Let me be another to agree here...level the place and make it glow.

    Sorry Folks. We absolutely cannot invade Pakistan or make it GLOW right now.

    We are too busy saving their lives and feeding them right now so that they can kill us later on.

    The U.S. military continues their flood relief efforts in Pakistan by providing air rescue to Pakistani citizens, and delivering more than one million pounds of relief supplies to those in need.

    To date, U.S. military helicopters and C-130 aircraft have transported 1,164,470 pounds of relief supplies in partnership with the Pakistani military throughout flood-affected areas, delivering much-needed aid and providing transport to people who urgently need emergency assistance.

    “We’re honored to partner together, side by side with the Pakistan military and government, helping Pakistanis in their time of need,” said Navy Vice Adm. Michael A. LeFever, U.S. defense representative to Pakistan. “The courage and discipline displayed by the Pakistani military during this crisis has been truly impressive.”

    And it continues to amaze me how thankless they are for the help. At least the folks that are intent on destroying our country. We spend a tremendous amount of money helping Muslims and Muslin countries. Even more if you consider private humanitarian aid. But I guess that does not count.

    They should have delivered that relief with the C-130 Spooky!

    Well lets see here.......
    1) In six months when the Taliban go to recruit folks that have been rescued and fed and sheltered by U.S. troops what kind of reception might they get compared to if we had done nothing?
    2) Invading a country that has nukes can be problematic. They don't have to deliver them to U.S. soil. They can just scatter a few around the countryside and wait until we occupy that area. The mountainous terrain could channel the blast effects in a valley quite nicely while shielding population centers. Just have to wait until the wind is blowing the right direction to take the fall out where they want it. As there seems to be an adequate supply of people looking to martyr themselves with explosive vests, why should we assume they would have an issue with scaling it up a bit?

    Unless we restrict the sale and posession of uniforms we are going to have to get used to it. Anyone can walk into a surplus store, or order uniforms on line and ship them over there. Even with ITAR restricted stuff like NVGs and armor, a percentage is going to get through.

    Interesting Factoid. Did you know that 500 Million in U.S. Tax Dollars are being spent worldwide to repair and restore aging Mosque minarets?

    Well unfortunately no one has to order uniforms and ship them here. Everyday we have to remind the soldiers here to burn their old ACU's but still they either give them away or simply throw them in the trash. I just attended a meeting where a platoon commander stopped an Iraqi civilian wearing ACU's that were given to him by his brother who works for US forces.
    There are so many uniforms and equipment left behind by departing units or issued to local national translators that this type of thing will happen again.

    Like it or not it is not only the Taliban that is affected by the flooding should we really just let the kids die?
