    No, it is time we tell NATO and Pakistan to F off and we do the job we set out to do with our with out their support.

    But we will never do that. We care to much of what people think. You know, we dont want to hurt anyone's feelings....

    What would have happened if the paki army had rushed the compound and fighters were scrambled to shoot down the choppers? This could have went wrong. Many in Pakistan are wondering where the paki army was. I wonder also.

    We knew our opposition and what he was capable of or they would have found another way. This operation depended on Pakistani sloth and ineffectiveness. We did not take a chance that they would be so. We knew good and damn well that they would not be able to respond quickly.

    was it a matter of them not responding quick enough, or was it a matter of this leaking to Osama and him getting ghost before the operation could ever even take place?

    You are confusing items.

    1. The operation worked because we knew that the Paks were goofballs.

    2. The operation was covert because we don't trust the goofballs either.

    You're saying that we knew that the Pakistani military was unable to stop the mission due to out advantages? Do you think they would have tried if they could have?
