War On Reality Part 22 ; Would You Mind Awfully If We Went After The Terrorists In Your Backyard?

We all know how much Bush and the US are big, big fans of going to the ends of the Earth to catch terrorists and evildoers. But, considering all that, it's rather odd that back in 2005 Don Rumsfeld, remember him (you can get pills for the nightmares), called off a raid aimed at catching senior members of al-Qaeda.

The reason for the sudden change of heart you ask?

The US were worried about upsetting Pakistan. When have another country's feelings been taken in account when military action was concerned?

Is there something about Pakistan which we've missed? The only other country in the World that is treated so carefully is Saudi Arabia.

Is there oil underneath Islamabad?
