Got to love this. Kyrgyszstan has issued an eviction notice to the United States to vacate Manas airbase within 180 days. I guess their attempt to get part of the stimulus bill fell through in the negotiations. On a serious note, if Manas does go away it leaves only one supply line into Afghanistan through Pakistan. Pakistan, a country unraveling as I type this as al-Qaeda/Taliban gobbles up more of the country. Pakistan that candidate Obama promised to invade. President Obama just may have to invade Pakistan to keep the supply lines open so the expanded US military presence in Afghanistan does not starve and fail.
Welcome to the big leagues President Obama, it ain't the campaign trail.
