Default Afghanistan, Pakistan agree to fight Taliban and al-Qaida

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30599619/

Quote:
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama declared he got the commitments he wanted Wednesday from the leaders of Pakistan and Afghanistan to more aggressively fight Taliban and al-Qaida militants who are gaining power and sowing violence in their countries.

"I'm pleased that these two men, elected leaders of Afghanistan and Pakistan, fully appreciate the seriousness of the threats that we face and have reaffirmed their commitment to confronting it," Obama said at the White House.

The presidents of the two countries stood at his side after a day of joint meetings. Obama is sending 21,000 fresh U.S. troops into Afghanistan to help with the anti-terror war.

Quote:
Obama emphasized the progress he said was achieved in the Washington meetings, thousands of miles from the conflicts.

"We have advanced unprecedented cooperation," Obama declared. "We will work for the day when our nations are linked not by a common enemy but by a shared peace and prosperity."

Gathering the three leaders together at one table, along with lower-level officials from the three countries, "reflects the kind of concrete cooperation and detail that is going to ultimately make a difference in improving opportunity and democracy and stability in Pakistan and in Afghanistan," Obama said.

The stakes couldn't be higher, he said.

"We have learned time and again that our security is shared," the president said. "It is a lesson that we learned most painfully on 9/11, and it is a lesson that we will not forget."

The president said all three governments must cooperate in fighting insurgents who control parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan and must "deny them the space" to threaten local residents or Americans.

What we're doing in Pakistan is what we're doing in Iraq. Trying to rebuild a nation and give 2.5 billion a year for 5 years to rebuild and strengthen it's economy.

Why do we keep making the middle-east our issue?

Just because we support the Jews?


At some point, it's time to start worrying about ourselves (Americans) and stop playing World Police and fukcing with other Countries.

Most of these Countries (Korea, Iraq, Iran) pose no direct threat to the US.

Terrorism?

100x's more people die everyday from Cancer and Car Accidents.
