Yes, Pakistan is in trouble.
Yes, there is terrorism there.
But for god's sake, butt out!
The real reason terrorism isn't being handled in Pakistan is because the Pakistani people cannot unite against it. And the main reason they can't is because US involvement has created this dichotomy of either you are pro-US interference or you are pro-Islamists! Which is ridiculous and an unfair choice to be forced to make. People are too busy being angry about how the US is bullying their country, to actually unite against the other problem they have which is the terrorism and extremist islam growing in their country. And the more the US talks about being strong on terrorism, the more support the terrorists will get in Pakistan. It's like someone has an infectious disease (terrorism) and instead of letting people who care about the person (Pakistanis) find a cure, you (the US), because you are a paranoid control freak, just want to go in and kill the person (Pakistan) so they can't spread it around. Of course the disease (terrorism) isn't dependent on the person (Pakistan) to survive and will probably escape and infect someone else, so the solution not only kills the person (destroys Pakistan), it also doesn't actually get rid of the problem! And of course, the people wanting to fight the disease (terrorism) are too busy defending the person (Pakistan) against you (the US), to be able to prioritize fighting the actual disease (terrorism).
Honestly, in general I am pro liberal Obama democratic etc, mainly cuz, I like liberal social values, but this whole obsession with invading my country, makes me want to kick him in the face!
