Ssh... this is OT on this list. Let's remain sane and talk about Pakistan and Afghanistan as regions of historical and linguistic interest. Anyway, I doubt if any members of President Bush's administration are Cybalist members, so you warning has the wrong address.

USA has to be careful in furthering the alliance with Pakistan during
the lengthy campaign.

Given the close alliance which existed between the Talibs and the ISI
of Pakistan, USA operatives should take whatever Pakistan gives with
a pinch of salt (pardon the pun with reference to the location of the
Salt Range in Pakistan).

Beware! President Bush and Secy. Powell, you are dealing with recent
bed-fellows of terror as you try to use Pakistan's current regime to
progress the campaign.

Pres. Bush and Secy. Powell, how are you sure that whatever
assurances are by Pakistan regime regarding terror networks are
indeed genuine and genuinely inspired by a common desire to wipe out
terrorism from the region?

How can the alliance partners and USA be sure that the military brass
of the Pakistan regime are true converts (as of Sept. 11, 2001) to
the cause of counter-terrorism, when prior to Sept. 11, 2001 all
their actions pointed to their being collaborators of terror (as
documented in US Dept. of State documents on Counterterrorism and as
shown in the document released by Secy. Powell only in April 2001)?
