US Senators call for direct strikes on al-Qaeda inside Pakistan

Obviously al Qaeda and the Taliban are dominating the Waziristan region of Pakistan. To the credit of the Democratic Party dominated Senate, there is a suggestion that America should attack known terrorist and terrorist training camps within Pakistan.

A Pakistani envoy has warned that such action might topple the Musharraf dictatorship that has been playing Islamists and America so far to America’s benefit. The implication being an American attack on Terrorist stronghold’s within Pakistan might topple Musharraf. Such demise would portend an Islamist take over of already nuclear Pakistan.

So the question becomes do we attack monsters directly responsible for 9/11 or protect a Mohammedan asset in Musharraf?
