BLITZER’S BLOG: U.S.-Pakistani relations potentially at a disastrous turning point

(CNN) – I’m really worried about U.S.-Pakistani relations. Things are not moving in the right direction. Indeed, they are moving toward a potential disaster for both countries – and the region – unless cooler heads prevail.

There are a few givens we have to keep in mind.

    Things have been back sliding for a while, and have been accelerating since the Bin Laden raid and capture. I am sure that John McCain will speak out on this topic in the near future in an attempt to project leadership. The US wants to do the exact opposite of whatever he might say.

  3. Obama/Biden 2012 -- Because 4 years of FAILURE just isn't enough

    Well, this is what happens when you put an inexperienced urban cowboy in the Whitehouse. He's pushed and pushed and pushed Pakistan to the point where they are going to push back hard. In case Obama hadn't noticed, could somebody please inform the dolt that Pakistan is a sovereign nation! And while you're at it could you please explain to the moron that there are 100-200 THOUSAND of our troops whose lives depend on a supply line that GOES THROUGH PAKISTAN!!

    It would appear Obama isn't satisfied with total failure on the domestic front. He wants to expand his failures to include overseas screw ups too. The military must be pulling their hair out right about now.

    Classic demagoguery. SEriously, Wolf, bury the "OMG NUKES!!!!" and running around like your pubes are on fire a little deeper in the article so it's not so obvious.

    You mean things have been sliding back since Obama was elected right? Or are you going to blame this on George Bush too? BTW, pretty lame attempt to drag McCain into another Obama failure. Will you losers EVER accept responsibility for your actions???

    I just don't understand. A community organizer couldn't possibly be this bad at foreign relations! This is what happens when you elect a pretender.

  7. Republicans 2012 - Because 30 years of class warfare isn't enough

    @Obama/Biden. . . Evidently you don't get television or newspapers in your parents basement. It is just like you losers to not admit that Hoover/republicans caused the first depression, and Bush/republicans caused the near depression of 2008. Accept some blame for the unfunded wars.

    Don't worry. Obama is a genious. His wing-it approach will pay off.

    The President has done an outstanding job vis-a-vis foreign policy. This is because this is one area where the GOTeatards can't come in and screw it up for everybody.
    Little flame fanners and agitators who can't even decide what name to blog under like Obama blah zzzzzzzzz blah blah should leave the opinions and the actions to the adults in the room.
