This modern mindless missive from Cindy Cross is full of logical holes. But we don't have to worry about getting a response from Cindy defending her opinions, she is incapable of doing so.
Cindy Cross actually adds nothing to the Huffington Post and AP stories on this statement from Romney. When Cindy attempts to opine, she comes up with this: "It is no secret that Pakistan openly harbors terrorists. Not just the bottom rung yes-men in terrorist groups, but the head of the snake leaders of Al-Qaida; leaders named Osama Bin Laden"

Cindy Cross believes that Pakistan openly harbored bin Laden? Wait, it gets even less intelligent. She says Pakistan accused the US of 'betraying' their sovereignty. Cindy, the term is violating, and when spelling the name of the former head of Al Qaeda, the 'b' is not capitalized.
The US did, indeed, violate the sovereignty of Pakistan, if the publicly told story of the DEVGRU team flying in from Afghanistan without the approval of Pakistan is how the killing of bin Laden went down.
The last two short paragraphs of Cindy's punditry are nothing less than pablum. What is Cindy's point here? That withholding aid would be different from Obama's strategy? Because that is incorrect. Web Link
That the billions still going to Pakistan should stay here? Does that make the US CinC look tough? I cannot speculate, as this is nonsense. I understand more clearly, with every spectacularly sad statement from Cindy Cross, the PW needs bloggers, they really do need new bloggers.

I sincerely hope that any bloggers Ms. Channell-Allen adds to the Town Square are Tri-Valley writers who, like Cindy Cross, are able to express their opinion about current events, politics and politicians without making, or responding in kind, to personal attacks from posters who disagree with their position.

It’s unfortunate that so many regular participants on this forum seem to be more interested in belittling and ridiculing the poster/blogger who expresses an opinion with which they do not agree, than actually sharing their opinion on the thread subject.

Stacey was right on the money in her March 2011 thread entitled “Concerted Effort to Silence Free Speech”. I join her in stating unequivocally that this type of activity should not be welcome here, and urge anyone truly interested in “engaging in a real and honest debate” to take another look at her posting.

No belittling or ridiculing here. I saw Romney speaking before some of our military this morning, delivering his international positions.
SO, SO PRESIDENTIAL in all catagories....probably one of the most presidential, in all aspects, we've had in decades.
Wishing enlightenment for the ignorant, partisan, biggoted, uninformed, and single-issue zealots. America first!!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
