#2 This offensive is very good but it is 8 (BUSH) years late in coming. Whatever the US does won't be seen in the media as helping. So who cares? Let's support the Pakistani's and our President and military leaders and find the Al Qaeda /Taliban and wipe them out. Then maybe there can be change.

#3 Play4Keeps, Coalition troops have been doing rotation after rotation since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, with very little break in between to recover, refit and retrain. You'll note I write Coalition, because it's not been only American troops keeping that schedule. Would you have had them fighting without a break for the last six years straight? We simply haven't had either the manpower or the war materiel to maintain two active fronts along with all the other areas they've been covering (supra- and sub-Saharan Africa just for starters, plus lots of other places neither of us know anything about).

Let's hope reports from Pakistan are true, and not just Pakistani wishful thinking or byzantine scheming, to both of which they are sadly prone.
