I see what you're getting at. All I'm arguing is that timing is everything.
At this point, Pak already has nukes, making tough talk impractical,
so our influence is all we have. Musharif at least gives lip service
to being our ally, so with the aid we give him, we at least have some
influence. He says he's going to go ahead with elections this spring,
(no, I'm not calling them 'free and fair') so we'll see.
