U.S. Commander Orders Plans on Pakistan

But, but, but, Pakistan has said already they won't allow foreign troops to operate on Pakistani soil. They think these US forces actually won't fight? They're walking around with weapons and will be attacked. Give me a break.

I posted about the original story here and there's a link to the whole story.
- The commander of U.S. forces in Central Asia has launched planning for more extensive use of U.S. troops to train Pakistani armed forces, a senior defense official said Wednesday.

Adm. William J. Fallon, commander of U.S. Central Command, issued a planning order, an internal instruction to lower-level commanders, to propose ideas for a long-term approach to helping Pakistan combat what has become an expanding, homegrown insurgency that threatens the stability of the government.

Fallon's intent is to develop new approaches to help Pakistan, with a time horizon stretching to 2015, the official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the order has not been made public.

A central assumption in the planning is that no such U.S. training contribution would be made without the Pakistani government's prior approval, the official said.

Help 'em, huh?

DISCLAIMER: I'm not even suggesting one or both of those soldiers would return fire, although that wouldn't be too bright, or even be in the fucking country when more troops are brought in.

Its just a visual aid. I use visual aids often and many contain recognizable faces.
