It bears repeating that Pakistan has closed the border at the United States' request.

It makes me sick to read these reports.

On the one hand, I'm glad that the civilians are getting out of the city, if not the country. On the other, I have little doubt that if Bin Laden and his were there, he is now long-gone to some sanctuary.

In a country where you have to trade your watch for a bag of rice or beans, I'm sure a billion dollars will buy you a swift and frictionless egress.

I think the US should enter thru every bordering country.
