Obama the bomber delivered a speech to the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars - on August 1st 2007 (full text here but access forbiden) review by Sourcewatch with links here
Back in 2004, while running for the U.S. Senate, he declared that while "launching some missile strikes into Iran is not the optimal position for us to be in, having a radical Muslim theocracy in possession of nuclear weapons is worse."
He added, "There are elements within Pakistan right now - if Musharraf is overthrown and they took over, I think we would have to consider going in and taking those bombs out."
In a sabre rattling speech the Senator warned that he would use American forces to invade U.S. ally Pakistan if its leaders weren't doing enough to catch terrorists on their soil.
"Let me make this clear. There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans."
"They are plotting to strike again . . . If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."
The New York Post - the read of egg heads and policy wonks in NY and written by Rupert Murdoch serfs reported on his speech ..
Joe Biden, the Delaware senator who heads that committee, mocked Obama as a "Johnny-come-lately" on the idea of shifting the focus to the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
"The way to deal with it is not to announce it, but to do it," Biden said.
"The last thing you want to do is telegraph to the folks in Pakistan that we are about to violate their sovereignty, putting Musharraf in the position that makes it virtually impossible for him to do anything other than what he's done, basically cut a deal with the warlords."
Well of course things have moved on Mushariff has gone, another Bhutto murdered and the biggest criminal in Pakistan is President and sites in Waziristan are being stafed and bombed on a regular basis by US forces. As Joe Biden now his VP said - "Just do it".
As Obama stays silent about his plans for invading Pakistan he also stays silent about the use of phosphorous bombs by his allied murderers and war criminals Olmert, Livni and Barak (Gerald Kaufmann MP's (whom Allah be praised) description of them in the House of Commons last night as the Government and Opposition benches sat in stony silence and carefully examined their footwear) against the penned in, starving, thirsty, prisoners of Gaza.
Well Obama hasn't started yet .... but let's be clear about it.... this is where his foreign policy at the Eastern end of the Mediterranean kicks off. He follows in the proud tradition of President Bush doing deals with the body boiler Karimov of Uzbekistan.
Why did anyone expect any different ?
