Should the US take a tougher stance with Pakistan while encouraging India to step up in Afghanistan?


The U.S. is calling Pakistan out for harboring Al Qaeda, the Taliban and other terrorist organizations that attack in Afghanistan. The U.S. is also courting India to step up in Afghanistan when the U.S. troops are moved out. This would give India two fronts against Pakistan. Is this the only way to get the point across to Pakistan that we will not tolerate them harboring terrorist groups?

    America is a warlike nation and has wasted trillions on useless wars, many of which it has lost. America is bankrupt but the average American knows more about DWTS and the Kardashians than about the serious problems America faces.

    Well done! No one has ever maintained control over that region, yet no one seems to get the point. As a result, the people live in perpetual war. China, Pakistan and Iran can now go broke and ruin a couple of generations of their military.

    I don't care if people disagree with me politically. There are some questions that can be asked without politics entering into the discussion. Pakistan insists on shooting itself in the foot, internally and externally.

    "very dire consequences"? Such as bomb and kill innocent civilians?

    Hasn't central asia been a quagmire for any nation that tried to interfere there? It is an awful part of the world, but I keep thinking about the women and children.
