A shift in focus.

Should Pakistan have been our main focus all along?

  • Yes and no. It should have been along side Afghanistan. It's like a chess match where you have the king cornered, and they have 2 spaces to use, the one they occupy and the one right next to them. Move your queen over, they scoot one space, move it back, they move back. That's where we are right now - we focus on Afghanistan, they move to Pakistan. We focus on Pakistan, they move to Afghanistan. Take forces out of Afghanistan, focus on Pakistan, guess where they're going.

  • In what way should it have been ' our main focus ' ? It already receives billions in economic and military aid from the US and Europe .

    Do you mean sending in troops for regime change or root out the Taliban in Pakistani territory ?
