Bush on Pakistan & War on Terra: "Mushie, you're doin' a HECK of a job"
Bush: Pakistan Committed to War on Terror

By TERENCE HUNT, AP White House Correspondent 22 minutes ago

SLAMABAD, Pakistan - President Bush showed solidarity Saturday with Pakistani President Gen. Perez Musharraf's war-on-terror alliance with the United States, a stance that is at odds with many in this Islamic nation.

"Part of my mission today was to determine whether or not the president is as committed as he has been in the past to bringing these terrorists to justice, and he is," Bush said at a joint news conference with Musharraf after lengthy talks between the two leaders. "He understands the stakes, he understands the responsibility and he understands the need to make sure our strategy is able to defeat the enemy." Bush said the main concerns are making sure that "actionable" intelligence is shared on a real-time basis between the two countries, and that Pakistan has the equipment and resources to move on terrorists and their hideouts.

Two days after an American diplomat was killed in a suicide car-bombing at a U.S. consulate in the southern city of Karachi, a hotbed of Islamic militancy, Bush promised that neither country would "back down in the face of these killers."

"We will win this war together," he said.

he looks like he's goin to piss in his pants. He looks scared like hell. I can think of few other countries where so many people despise him.

It reminds of that Dickhead Tucker Carlson when he was there. Here he yells and shouts and acts like a tough guy, but when he was broadcasting from there (sometime after 9/11) he was visibly scared.

But the funniest thing in this pic is the guy on the top right hand corner. He doesn't look like he cares for Bush all that much.
