Edited to provide more info regarding potential upcoming opportunity...

Obama might send troops into Pakistan
By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Wednesday that he would send troops into Pakistan to hunt down terrorists even without local permission if warranted an attempt to show strength when his chief rival has described his foreign policy skills as naive.

The Illinois senator warned Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf that he must do more to shut down terrorist operations in his country and evict foreign fighters under an Obama presidency, or Pakistan will risk a U.S. troop invasion and losing hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. military aid.

"Let me make this clear," Obama said in a speech prepared for delivery at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. "There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al-Qaida leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."

The excerpts were provided by the Obama campaign in advance of the speech.

7. I don't get it. The link just goes to the main page of Today's Military.
Is there an article or something you're trying to reference? Maybe you should just C&P it.

8. There's a Recruiter from each of the Services ready to talk with you.
At the bottom center of the page... war supporters can click on the branch of service preferred.

14. No, I wasn't calling you a "war supporter". I'm sorry that I came across that way.
You asked what I was trying to reference... the link at the bottom center is what I was trying to reference.
