The War No, Really—Worry
posted by September 25 at 14:23 PMon
The United States military says US and Afghan forces have exchanged gunfire with Pakistani troops across the border with Afghanistan.
A senior US military official says a five-minute skirmish broke out after Pakistani soldiers fired warning shots near two US helicopters.
Financial crisis (the bailout), political crisis (suspended campaigns), more political crisis (McCain polling better than he should), nuclear crisis (North Korea giving us the finger), and now the Pakistani army has the cojones to fire at the U.S. military? Could you even imagine that happening eight years ago? No. You cannot.
To repeat a post from yesterday: we are losing leverage by the day.
