U.S. Senator Talks Up War with Pakistan

South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a leading figure on the Senate Armed Services Committee, talked openly on “Fox News Sunday” about the possibility of war with Pakistan. As usual, it was couched in terms like “elevate our response” and “put all options on the table”–but he was clearly referring to military action.

“The sovereign nation of Pakistan is engaging in hostile acts against the United States and our ally Afghanistan that must cease,” Graham said. “I will leave it up to the experts, but if the experts believe that we need to elevate our response, they will have a lot of bipartisan support on Capitol Hill.”

“They’re killing American soldiers,” he continued. “If they continue to embrace terrorism as a part of their national strategy, we’re going to have to put all options on the table, including defending our troops.”

  1. The United States launches an numerous drones against the “sovereign state of Pakistan” to kill alleged enemies, and “accidentally” slaughters an untold number of innocent people. These raids are based on classified information received from where? Perhaps from the torture of unindicted, uncharged prisoners in secret american gulags? Outraged citizens then retaliate against american soldiers, who are doing what in their “sovereign state”? Which of these actions is “terrorism”, and which is the reaction of people against uninvited invaders in their country?
