So as you've probably all heard, Pakistan has sentenced the doctor who was instrumental in killing Osama bin Laden to 33 years in prison. Earlier this week, the DOD rejected demands from Pakistan to pay $5000 for each NATO truck that transports supplies to troops in Afghanistan through Pakistan.
This is a pretty serious international situation, and I'm sure the eyes of the world, particularly India, are watching closely. Pakistan's cooperation with the US seems tenuous, to say the least. Will Obama flex his muscles and dictate terms to Pakistan? He's certainly shown no disinclination to act unilaterally in the past (drone raids, OBL assassination).
Perhaps birth certificates, etch-a-sketches and dog carriers can take a back seat to this one. It's time to separate the Commanders-in-chief from the silver spoons and Republicans will have a tough time turning success into failure on this one, but they'll have a field day if Obama flinches.
Release the Hil-monster!
