Pakistan will be a valuable and useful ally. Take a look. They live right next door to Afghanistan. Their people have the advantage of having identical appearance to Afghanis.
This is a good point that I overlooked. This attack has to be carefully planned and evaluated. Contrary to popular public opinion, an airstrike or a groundstirke will not solve the issue, in fact, it may worsen it. true, it will probably give the pulic (mostly Americans) a temporary sense of satisfaction but ultimately does not resolve the issue. Someone pointed out that this is a world problem and I agree, therefore strategic warfare planning and impeccable and precise time and information management are key. As we all know, that can indeed take a while. Unfortunately, I think at this point everybody, particularly the US) is just anxious.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
