Turkey has expressed unhappiness about a new NATO missile shield. Our NATO ally is concerned that the shield is exclusively aimed against Iran.
Speaking of our allies, it has now been revealed that Pakistan’s intelligence services aided the terrorists who committed the Mumbai attacks two years ago. This news has apparently encouraged the United States and its NATO partners to help Pakistani Taliban leaders travel to Kabul to begin high-level negotiations with the Karzai government with the goal of ending the war in Afghanistan.
Repeat after me, everybody: “Paris, 1974!”
We just decided to lose yet another war.
