Enough said by U.S. to Pakistan?

Enough said by U.S. to Pakistan?

Could a debate taking place within the Obama administration over how to respond to the deaths of two dozen Pakistan soldiers in NATO airstrikes last week further exacerbate already-frayed ties with Islamabad and complicate U.S. efforts to end the war in Afghanistan?

While Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta have called the incident a "tragedy" and offered condolences, the U.S. government has not gone as far as to offer a formal apology. Some in the State Department believe a show of remorse is necessary to help save the relationship with Pakistan, already badly damaged over the U.S. raid into Pakistan to kill al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, from completely unraveling. But the White House has balked.

Details of the deadly raid early Saturday remain unclear. A NATO official said Afghan troops were working with elements of U.S. Special Operations forces in a combined mission on the Afghan side of the border.

Senior U.S. officials say initial reports indicate the U.S. and Afghan forces were fired upon across the border from Pakistan, but Pakistan's military spokesman, Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas, denied reports that Pakistani troops had prompted the attack by firing on the NATO helicopters. Abbas insists NATO helicopters fired first on the Pakistani military checkpoints.

Gen. James Mattis, the chief of U.S. forces in the region, named an Air Force general from the military's Special Operations Command to lead an investigation. Brig. Gen. Stephen Clark is expected to report back to Mattis by December 23. American officials with direct knowledge of initial reporting on the incident say Clark's probe is focusing on what coordination failures occurred before the airstrike.

But in the meantime, ties between Washington and Islamabad continue to sour, with Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani telling CNN in an interview that Pakistan is re-evaluating its relationship with the United States in light of the airstrike.

U.S. Ambassador Cameron Munter has made the case to Washington that the Pakistanis are very traumatized by what happened and are waiting for an official U.S. response, according to senior US officials familiar with interagency discussions on the incident.

Munter argued that if the United States has evidence that its solders were in the right - and found that Pakistanis soldiers were firing against American soldiers - the administration needs to present the evidence to the Pakistanis. But if the United States has evidence American soldiers were responsible for attacking and killing Pakistanis by mistake, Washington needs to formally apologize.

The White House and military leaders have said they would wait for the results of the the official investigation before any further official response is made.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney noted that the White House offered condolences on behalf of President Barack Obama, the administration and the American people "for the tragic loss of life."

"And we have launched an investigation through CENTCOM (U.S. Central Command) as well as ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) to find out exactly what transpired," he said. "There was obviously no apology."

He derided as "utter nonsense" a New York Times report that Obama's bid for re-election was a factor in the decision not to apologize to Pakistan.

Pakistan has been a vital land supply route into Afghanistan for the United States and its allies, and a key partner in the battle against al Qaeda and its aligned jihadist movements. The State Department insists the fallout with Pakistan over the incident has not disrupted the war effort, and that working level discussions and cooperations continue.

But some U.S. officials worry that the window is closing to respond to the incident Pakistan's military and intelligence cooperation begins to slow down. The incident, which NATO called a "tragic, unintended" event, has already compelled Pakistani authorities to turn back 300 trucks carrying NATO supplies and fuel into Afghanistan on Monday and order the United States to vacate the Shamsi air base.

Pakistan has also decided to boycott an upcoming conference on the future of Afghanistan. The Monday conference in Bonn, Germany, is being billed as a chance to start a reconciliation process in Afghanistan, an issue in which Pakistan has consistently maintained it should play a major role.

    Heloo falks. I hail from Faislabad Pakistan as freelund repotar to gave you blow by blow of what is go on behaind the back of Pakistan in Bonn German. It is sham USA kill many soljar on Afghan Pak boder forcing Pakistan to baycot Bonn. Some say this was USA grand plan from begining only. Only tame will tell. Anyway so far confrance is going ok no commant by any candidate. Soon as I com by they quite down and hush hush so I am not able to get inside info on anything.Rumor is Pakistan is not being missed much as Mr Krishna from India is showing off and become very chummy with Hillary, Kerzai and Euro leaders who is double crosser to Pakistan anyway. To make matters worstest, Germany served excellant lunch buffet of all Pakistani choice, to entice Pakistani offcials to change ther mind and come to this conference. This is an insult. Anyway the food was most delicious and included Shahi Biryani, Tandoori Chicken, Mughlai Lamb, Mutton Korma, Zafrani Pilaf with small raisins and big nuts, 26 different vegetable dishes of Indian names I can't pronounce, (of course to kiss up to India as usual). There was naan, raita and some pungent pickles. In dessert I had Rasgoola, Galab Jaman, Ras Malai and my favorat Feerni. The attendees have all left for more conference for the afternoon session. So far rumor is Pakistan should have bin here to at least fight with India for what they want before everything in Afghanistan is divid up and taken and all we get is scraps. But as usual Pak leaders do exact opposite of what world is doing. Anyway I am drowsy after this heavy meal so I will pretend to be sleeping with one eye and ear open to catch the gossip and repot back to you.

    Plain and simple. President Obama needs to make a major speech about becoming more financially responsible.

    First and formost, announce that all non-humanitarium aid to Pakistan and Afghanistan will end effective 1/1/13. All US military personal will also be out of country by that day.

    Then Obama should announce that the billions of dollars saved would be used to refocus our national interest on rebuilding our infrastructure, create jobs and make sure that everyone, especially children has a health care plan worthy of the most prosperous country in the world. Then we can start revitalizing our economy.

    To accomplish those goals the President should announce the formation of blue ribbon panels that will develop plans on how to address these issues. We don't need another "super committee"

    Those panels should include some lawmakers, business leaders and other normal everyday Americans that speak for their fellow Americans and can keep everyone honest and focused..

    Give each panel 120 days to report back with their recommendations. The panels are not an excuse to waste taxpayer money.

    We have to do 100% better than the stimulus package fiasco. There were multible billions of dollars in ear marks in that package. We can do far better and we must.

    A big part of this plan is to take up to 1% of the total funds to put together the best financial accountability review board in the world. Combine governmental entites and private sector companies with a proven tract record. Our private accounting bodies are the best in the world, bar none. Our governmental review entities are a laughing stock.

    We can do this. We have wasted probably a trillion bucks or more in these two wars. Lets end wasting money that we desperately need on countries that are running their months in public about talking down to the US.

    Let's make America the place that everybodybody looks up to once again. We lost our national identity because Bush wanted to waste our national treasure in money and lives on a war that should never have happened.

    We should have put 100,000 troops into Afghanistan.and destroyed tora bora before bin ladin ever got there. That war could have been won in 5 years or less. It just turned into the forgotten war and that was Bush's most terrible failure.

      There's no "war" over there it's an assault on civilian populations and an illegal occupation by the West and more complicated than your simple mind can comprehend. Cheney (who coincidentally is on the Kazakstan oil board) stated and mapped out the invasion of Afghanistan long before 911. The goal was self serving (as is all US foreign policy); to create a client state in the region and to transport the oceans of Central Asia to seaports. Only problem is that the last leg of that pipeline was dependent on Pakistan, now Pakistan has wised up to American duplicity and banned all the NATO death transports through its terroritory. Also Bin Laden, a former CIA agent under Reagan, is a red herring, he is just a fanatic preacher among thousands of them, but made into a cartoon supervillain by US propaganda. Since Osama Bin Laden was historically able to help the Taliban in their internal civil war against the Northern Alliance, this was the only reason he was invited there. But Bin Laden was also invited to and hosted by Dubai, a US Ally. And Dubai massacred its protesters while Libya, which did nothing of the kind, was carpet bombed by westerners. So why doesn't the US invade its oil friiend? Take a wild guess. Attacks like 911 and the Kenya bombing were planned and carried out by Saudi nationals. The US government and its traitorous presidents, however will not attack its oil friends, no matter how many 911's the Saudis are responsible for. An enslaved and occupied Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, however, cause dollar signs to pop up in American government traitors' eyes, and 911 was the perfect opportunity. Pakistan has taken the right step and it should also make trade and defense pacts with Afghanistan and Russia against the US/NATO Axis. Pakistan will be the agent that stops the modern day Hitlers, the mass murdering US/NATO Axis in their tracks.

        I wrote the post to make my opinions known. This is a very important issue that affects every American. Our country's leaders may have done irreparable damage to our financial system.. None of them have the wisdom to understand that there are certain things in our nations fabric that must be handled with utmost respect and reverance.

        Our budget should be one of those. There are plenty of things to argue and backstab each other over. When it's budget time quit whining and get it done..

        I laid out my post in great detail to suggest ways to stop wasting tens of billions of dollars a year on two governments. Those fools seem to try to out do each every week about how they are going to make demands on the Americans just to see how high we jump. We need that money here to help Americans in need.

        I had hoped to have an open dialogue and discuss or debate any part of my post all you want.

        I offer tp spend 1% of the total amount on a world class entity to keep track of every dollar that is spent. That 1% may be over $1 billion. That should fund the entity sufficiently to hire the type of experts needed to accomplish this task. There really are people out there who can track every cent and prevent outrageous cost overruns on every project. The sad thing is that none of them wirk for the government.

        This an is approach that has never been suggested to my knowledge.

        I would gladly discuss this with you to find out what intelligent alternative you have.

        With you it's hard to carry on an intelligent conversation with. It takes two intelligent people to have that conversation and you don't appear to qualify.

        Quit wasting your time typing about garbarge and use the brain that the good Lord gave you.

        What are your real thoughts about giving more money to two countries that need to be made an example out of.. They think that we will keep sending them money no matter what they say about us..

        The remarks you made about the U.S being modern day Nazi Germany is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard Mark. I dont know why the rest of the world has this fucking hate USA complex it is just bewildering. If it wasnt for billions of U.S. forign aid most third world nations would be even bigger hell holes than they are now and freedom wouldn't exist because I dont see Pakistani standing up for it any time soon ( probably to busy beating their woman for having an opinion). All we ever do is try to make the world a better place for all of us and take fanatics like Osama bin Laden to justice. If we really wanted your the middle east oil so badly we would not waste our time justifing as some crusade to stop terrorism and uplift the people of the middle east. We would just steam role every middle eastern country that got in our way and build these god damm pipelines and drill for all this god damm oil without giving any aid or trying to establish democratic goverments. We would just form our own goverments with our people, drive the Arabs away and commit all of our military assets to protecting these oil assets and not rebulilding the infrastructure or being the police

    It is already proven the Pakistan military and goverment can't be trusted. There is no reason for any Paki army to ever fire on any hellicopter, since the terrest don't have any. I think that if they were being shot at first they would not have had an opertunity to fire back. People in the paki army dislike the US are just looking for an opertunity to cause problems and bring their whole army into the conflict. We gave the Afgan goverment time to turn over Osama and we gave Pakistan way too much time. They should be at full war with all of the terrist groups and be given one year to turn them all over or we will attack them ourselves.

They will just have to know it they don't get their act together there may be civilian casualties it just can't be avoided so have all civillians just get out of the way. I do not support the rebuilding mode they cause the mess and they can clean it up after were done. If this crap repeats itself then we will just have to own the place to make sure things are done right. We by know means want pakistan but to make sure the terrist don't start building up again we have to keep it in check.

      I have been following the major developments in Pakistan for a while now.

      Pakistan has got to be the most intolerant country that continues to be in the league of governed geographies. Ethnic cleansing of minorities including Christians, Jews & Hindus is rampant. Heck, even non-Suni muslim sects like Shia, Ahmadi, Sufi are unable to live a free life.

      The army massages public opinion and whips it up on need. At some point, though, this will too become unmanageable. Is that point now or later, who knows? It is evident from the posts of the Pakistanis here that they are a very emotionally charged people who give not much significance to facts. They seem to be confusing what they 'feel' with what it 'is'. Liberals, minorities for that matter anyone who doesn't agree with their version of the 'truth' it seems they will not tolerate.

      The intolerant, dominating culture seems to emanate from the racist Punjabi Sunni supremacists. Through nepotism, they dominated the numbers in the army, ISI, political posts and sports. Totally disregarding the importance of opportunity, they eventually started claiming superiority over the rest of their own country, their own countrymen. Ahmadis, Pashtuns etc. feel discriminated against. The Punjabi Sunni Paki will not relent until all the non-Punjabi Sunni Pakis are either obliterated or subjugated.

Think about the common man in these countries and ask yourself as to why does he hate you so much? After all, the only thing that you have done is killed his son or brother or father !!! And all becuase of Oil!!! Please do not talk about duplicity, hypocrissy, hatred or bigotry and greed. It does not suit an American any more. They are no longer standing on a high moral ground.

        Are you quoting verbatim from the Qoran? Or, is it from your textbooks ? Evidently, neither taught you to be broad-minded.
        You bigoted, hate mongering moron, start with reforming your misogynistic culture.

        I see you conspiracy theorists have now taken to chest beating. It's easy to display bravery hiding behind the anonymity of the internet. Pipe down now.

        Not a good post. The Americans were fired on by -whom? There are armed people in the area who do not like us, and would love to start a fight between us and the Pakistanis.

        Ali,not sure what you are ranting and raving about? NATO's error is going to cost them big time. ANTO troops are going to suffer a bit,maybe not as much as the familes who losttheir loved ones but they will be deprived of a few rations for a bit and more. The question is will there be a serious and honest investigation? And perhaps Pakisatn should review its relationship with USA and bring it back to a level of a trusted ally. The fact of the matter is that the US has been Pakistan's ally for the past 65 years and there have been periods when we were the strongest of the allies. Let us not waste this relationship but try to make sure that we are back to the same respect as we enjoyed during Kennedy,Nixon and Johnson eras. US must also stop supporting puppets in Pakistan and ensure that they will not interfere in the next elections to bring another puppet. Both Karzai and Zarari are usless and serve no purpose to the common person.
