Re: Pakistan

Lisa, Pakistan is not our ally.  Musharraf, imperfect as he was, was our ally.  The Pakistani people substantially support fundamentalist Islam.  You’re right:  It’s silly fof Obama to blame our problems on Musharraf and to pine for “democracy” — what passes for Pakistani democracy (i.e., popular elections) does not help the U.S.  But to the extent Obama says we must be prepared to attack Pakistan, Obama is right — and McCain is not helping his cause to mock that position.
