Why Now?

Okay.  I’m not a huge fan of the Pakistani leadership and as allies go…  Well, it’s one of those “with friends like these, who needs enemies” situations.


If you accidentally kill an ally’s soldiers, why would you wait a week to personally call the President of those soldiers and offer condolences?  I get that one shouldn’t apologize for something that’s not one’s fault, and maybe we weren’t sure if it was our fault or not.  But for heaven’s sake, pick up the darn phone and at least give one of those vague “I’m sorry for your loss, we’re investigating this tragedy” statements.

It took a week for Obama to make the call to Zardari?  Really?


About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
