Clinton: "severe consequences" in case of attack (.. next time .. if "successful" .. heaven-forbid)
Reuters on Yahoo ^ | 5/9/10 | Michelle Nichols

Posted on 05/09/2010 1:02:33 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The United States has warned of "severe consequences" if a successful extremist attack in America were traced back to Pakistan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday in an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes."

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for a failed bid to bomb New York's Times Square last Saturday. If proven, it would be the group's first act in the United States.

Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad has been charged with driving the crude homemade bomb into Midtown Manhattan and said he acted alone, according to authorities. But investigators have uncovered possible links to the Pakistani Taliban and a Kashmiri Islamist group.

"We've gotten more cooperation. It's been a real sea change in the commitment we have seen from the Pakistani government. We want more, we expect more," Clinton said in the interview to be aired on Sunday. Excerpts were released on Friday.

"We've made it very clear that if -- heaven-forbid -- an attack like this that we can trace back to Pakistan were to have been successful, there would be very severe consequences," she said, without elaborating.

If the US sends troops into Pakistan the Pak government will fall and we will see the Taliban and ALQeada running the place.

Oh they also have nukes.

So Obama is saying to the terrorists, “If you want to take over a country and have nukes to use, go ahead and attack us again”

Obama is inviting more attacks on America. In return we offer to gove them a nation and nukes.

Clinton’s unusual public warning signals that Pakistan’s anti-terror efforts fall far short of what the Obama administration is willing to accept. This does not bode well for either our anti-terror defenses or for our Afghan war.

.. and we’d be getting rid of a few nukes too, , it’s a win win as Obama takes the arsenal apart.

How dastardly an action would it take to provoke such a response?

This little science experiment Shahzad threw together shows how far they will go with off the shelf components.. God help us they ever get another chance or get “lucky” next time..

What are you going to do, Hillary!

“Bring them to justice” like your scumbag husband claimed he’d do but never did?

Or maybe you’ll get really mad and turn down having Osama delivered to you.

Why don’t you commies just go the hell to Cuba or Ven. or the USSR.

We have a tenuous alliance with the political and military leaders of Pockyston and the rest are Islamo-Fascists or dirt poor cannon fodder. So, who do Barry0 and Hillary threaten with "severe consequences?" The Pockis we have some alliance with.

Good idea. Let’s just wait until what happened the LAST two times fails (lucky breaks...) and a device goes off killing hundreds or thousands of Americans.

Yeah. Then we will strike back at someone.

This is like watching kids juggling M-80s...we won’t do anything till one of them blows his hand off.
