War on Three Fronts

Update below.

Could the Surge be headed to Pakistan? It stands to reason. Here is the Star-Telegram:

The commander of U.S. forces in Central Asia has launched
planning for more extensive use of U.S. troops to train Pakistani armed forces,
a senior defense official said Wednesday.
Adm. William J. Fallon, commander
of U.S. Central Command, issued a planning order, an internal instruction to
lower-level commanders, to propose ideas for a long-term approach to helping
Pakistan combat what has become an expanding, homegrown insurgency that
threatens the stability of the government.
Fallon's intent is to develop new
approaches to help Pakistan, with a time horizon stretching to 2015, the
official said.

My prediction is, with Iraq almost won, and 3200 Marines headed to the Afghan front, already our military is gearing for the final showdown in the mountainous regions of Pakistan. There will see the end of Osama Bin Laden and his outlaw terrorist regime! Stay tuned...
