Bombing Pakistan back to the Stone Age?

President Pervez Musharraf has claimed that Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage threatened to bomb Pakistan “back to the Stone Age” if it didn’t cooperate with the United States after 9/11.

Armitage denies he ever said that and President Bush says he knows nothing of it.

Musharraf made the claim in an interview that will air on 60 Minutes Sunday evening.

Here’s an interesting tidbit from today’s story:

Musharraf said he could not comment because of a contract for a book to be published on Monday. [emphasis Murdoc’s]

Coincidental timing, I’m sure.


  1. It would be very cold blooded to do it now in Iraq. The real issue is how we proceed with Iran. My position is we need to wipe at least one major Iranian city off the face of the Earth. I’d pick Tehran. That would be in addition to sending troops in to destroy their military and take away their capability to build nukes. This proportionality crap has got to go. We either put our troops in harms way to win, or we keep them here at home. No other option is acceptable.
