Pakistan: Obama is Ignorant

I'd just like to thank Pakistan for this...
Via Yahoo News: ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Pakistan accused Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama of "sheer ignorance" for threatening to launch US military strikes against Al-Qaeda on Pakistani soil.

Obama warned Wednesday that if he is elected president, he would order US forces to hit extremist targets on Pakistan's frontier with Afghanistan if embattled military ruler President Pervez Musharraf failed to act.

"Such statements are being made out of sheer ignorance," Pakistan's Minister of State for Information, Tariq Azeem, told AFP. "They are not fully apprised about the ground realities and not aware of the efforts by Pakistan."
I agree. What Obama said was almost, but not quite, as stupid as Pakistan's so called 2006 peace agreement with tribal militants the Taliban.

In the 2006 agreement, tribal leaders Taliban terrorists agreed to a peace deal with Pakistan a bunch of suckers. In the agreement the Taliban agreed to police themselves if Pakistan would just withdraw its troops from the area. Shortly afterward the al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists began using the area as a safe haven to launch attacks on Afghanistan and to resume kidnappings and murders.

So who's the more Ignorant? The Obama or Pakistan? I dunno, close call.
