We have no military access to Pakistan, period, and I say this as someone who has sat with infantry and special forces troops near that border. The truth is we've just violated the sovereign territory of a "strong ally" in the War on Terror.Also a country we really hope has stopped selling nuclear technology to other countries, countries like Iran.
As Terry rightly says of our ability to deal with Iran:
Bush's misuse of the military in Iraq has left us in no position to mount yet another military campaign. In other words, Bush sent troops into Iraq to protect us from imaginary weapons of mass destruction, leaving us vulnerable to real ones.And honestly, why do Republicans hate veterans?
