More Naivete From Obama

First, he wants to meet with our enemies and talk. Now, he says we are on the wrong battlefield, and would eye Pakistan as the next target in our war:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Wednesday that he would possibly send troops into Pakistan to hunt down terrorists, an attempt to show strength when his chief rival has described his foreign policy skills as naive.

The Illinois senator warned Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf that he must do more to shut down terrorist operations in his country and evict foreign fighters under an Obama presidency, or Pakistan will risk a U.S. troop invasion and losing hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. military aid.

"Let me make this clear," Obama said in a speech prepared for delivery at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. "There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al-Qaida leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."

Naive does not begin to cover the idiocy this man is showing. Let me get this straight here: Because he feels President Musharraf is not doing his job right, we are going to invade his nation? Pakistan is an allyof this nation, and President Musharraf is doing what he has to do to try and rein in the Islamicists.

While it would be OK to apply political pressure when it was necessary, to turn around and threaten an ally is beyond the pale. It is simply not constructive. We can offer all the help to President Musharraf we can, but to invade his country is not a help; it is a hinderance in the worst way.
