Well, can anyone deny that staging a military invasion is an act of war? If any country did this to us, we'd certainly view it as such. Actually, how could anyone deny it's an act of war.

Pakistan doesn't want to go to war with the U.S., so nothing will come of it, but, yeah, it was an act of war.

This was certainly an unusual case considering the raid was being live tweeted from on the ground in Pakistan. Something like 3 hours in country with helicopters and there was no confrontation from the nearby military base.

“Well, can anyone deny that staging a military invasion is an act of war?”

Technically “an invasion”, but hardly based in reality. A legal incursion to get a war criminal would be more accurate.

“it was an act of war.”

Again, technically.

So you were against the raid to kill Bin Laden?

Some decades ago, representatives from the Irish Republican Army would do fund-raising in the US in Irish-American communities. Visualize the reaction if British SAS commandos staged a hit on the IRA guys on US soil.

It is an act of war.

And I wish they’d declare war on us. It would be good to wipe out the insane islamofascists ruling that part of the world.

I also think its an act of war against us to harbor bin laden.

And no I don’t believe for a moment they weren’t.

IMHO, giving Bin Laden shelter all those years was akin to an act of war. Don’t buy for a second the premise that they didn’t know he was there.

Only because they cannot reach us. They can however reach India. They just sent funding to the Pakistani terrorist group responsible for the terrorist attack on Mumbai. Wonder what that group is planning ?

Was hiding Bin Laden from us for 9 years an act of war?
Didn't Bush say that if you are providing terrorists with a base of operations in your country you are part of the terrorist problem?
The pakis had been advised and they chose to play dumb.

One could also argue their harboring of him, for several years, down the road from Pakistan’s West Point, was also an Act of War.
