Respected counter-insurgency expert says Pakistan could collapse within months.

Posted on Updated on


As David Kilcullen (counter-insurgency advisor to Gen. David Patraeus) states, Pakistan could collapse within months. I respect his comments on our drone attacks on the Taliban, too.

If that happens, we’ll have a nuclear armed al-Qaeda. Nothing else needs be said.

    So, if Pakistan collapses does that mean it will become 8.25% worse than it is now?

    Oh, my, it’s a crisis!

    I say we send the Peace Corps in and see how they fare. Then we can send the marines to rescue them when they are taken hostage.

    Then we can blame the Marines for escalating the violence.

    Actually, things would be considerably worse for us.

    The world cannot afford for things to get much worse in Pakistan. 8.25% would likely be the tipping point.

    No matter what happens the conservatives will be blamed if military action is taken, and the liberals will remain fashionable, wear faded clothes, hang out at coffee shops, and complain about how dumb their dumb country is.

    So, to keep the liberals happy we should do the most progressive, active, aggressive thing they know how:

    Nothing.

    Yes, to a liberal, progress is inevitable. If we sit around doing nothing, the jihadists and Neo-Bolshevics will see how much better the West is doing and come to our side.

    If we legalize drugs, the drug problem will go away.

    If we open the borders, immigration issues will evaporate.

    I admit that the other side has seen things our way in the past. But not while we were doing “nothing.” Michael Gorbechev stated he knew the USSR had lost the Cold war when he walked into a Canadian grocery store and saw all the food. In his stores back home, he could barely get a can of coffee.

    That only happened though, after decades of military build-ups and proxy wars finally exausted a system that simpley cannot compete with democratic capitalism. yes–*CAPITALISM.*
