More incursions, more troops, more money?

As the US continue to bomb parts of Pakistan and wage asymmetric warfare in the border regions, an additional 30,000 US troops are to be deployed to Afghanistan by mid 2009.

The increase in military might, according to the US commander in Afghanistan, General David McKiernan, is to combat the swell of insurgent forces coming predominantly from Pakistan.

So why has Washington promised to provide more than $300 million a year in military aid to Pakistan over the next five years when it looks like an invasion is on the cards?

An increase of US incursions into Pakistan, an increase of US troops into Afghanistan, an increase of US military aid into Pakistan – go figure.
