Something we should’ve done a long time ago. Too bad Robert Gates and Condi keep advising Bush to NOT fight the war on terror he pledged to do after 9-11.

KABUL, May 26 (Reuters) – The United States should target militant bases in Pakistan, an Afghan state-controlled paper said on Monday, reacting to a threat by a Pakistani Taliban leader to carry out attacks in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan and Pakistan, while both U.S. allies, have had strained relations, with Kabul accusing Islamabad of harbouring Taliban and al Qaeda militants and allowing them to direct and carry out attacks from Pakistani soil.

The Hewad newspaper called on Pakistan’s government to review its stance on negotiations with the militants and not allow such deals to threaten Afghanistan.
