Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 07, 2018

Foreign Se­cre­tary Tehmina Janjua has said that Pakistan will continue to have engagement, as far as possible, with the US because America is not only a global power but also has its presence in the region, and "for us it's almost our neighbour". In reply to a question, the foreign secretary said President Donald Trump's tweet on Jan 1 could be well thought out or he was just being his impulsive self, or it could be a result of any other reason such as the fact that the US is not doing well in Afghanistan.

Ms Janjua commented, "The tweet that came on Jan 1 was a tweet that came for many reasons. We are trying to analyse why that tweet came. It could have been some briefing material given to him in the morning ... What triggered it? Because we mustn't forget that the meetings we had with the Americans (General Mattis) before that were positive ... Yet on Jan 1 the New Year's gift to the world were two tweets: there was one about Pakistan and the other about Iran. Why was the president of the United States at four o'clock in the morning thinking about Pakistan and Iran? In Iran, there was something happening there, but Pakistan..... question mark."

Putting out impulsive signals on Twitter makes leaders around the world very confused. As for me, I think the fried turnip I had for dinner yesterday was smarter than this guy.

Pentagon still in touch with Pakistani military: Mattis

WASHINGTON: US Defence Secretary James Mattis on Friday said that the Pentagon was maintaining its communication with the Pakistani military establishment, including with Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, even after suspending its security assistance to Pakistan.

"I think, yesterday Gen Joseph Votel was on the phone with Gen Bajwa, the chief of the army staff. And we'll continue to coordinate this," he said at an afternoon news briefing at the Pentagon.

"Obviously, we'll continue talking with one another, as we are at all times," said the US defence chief.

Analysts, who spoke to various media outlets, said it's highly unlikely that the US will freeze all its supplies to Pakistan.

At the State Department briefing, officials indicated that Washington could make "exemptions" for programmes deemed vital to US national security.

Pakistan has paid for 15 Super Cobra choppers that will be delivered this year. Stopping those would be foolish as they are one of the best anti-terrorist tools.

Dude. If you buy a big brick of Cheddar, you need to scrape the wax off first. The bricks have a wax coating on them to keep them fresh. hahahahahahahaha

I know that, Mr Tremain. I'm talking about the cheese under the wax covering. Although, if I remember correctly, this wedge of English Cheddar didn't have a wax coating. It was wrapped in cellophane or polyethylene (polythene to you). ☺

Sorry, RIGHT. No slight intended.

The reason I have a doubt about this Tremaine/Tosser thing is because it was brought to Rcade's attention a long time ago and he apparently found the allegation untrue. There is no rule against having two accounts unless one is being used to get around a suspension of the other. That doesn't seem to be the case here. We have to trust Rcade's judgment because he's pretty strict about things like this.

Still it's hard to overlook the many similarities in speech, style and especially temperament. I think we have every right to continue to be suspicious just on those grounds alone.

As I said above. The moderation rules require a fair amount of etiquette. We come here because we enjoy the good natured back and forth bantering. The tenor of the site gets ruined when comments become vile, vindictive and overly caustic The "flags" are there to stop that from happening. We don't need this site to turn into failure like Cruel.com .

The thing with me is Tremain and ------ have pretty much the same site seniority but the only time Tremain ever posted originally was when ------ was in jail. And then only when he needed to gloat over something bad happening either to India or the US military in Afghanistan. Now that ------/Rigel is gone, Tremain is here all the time.

Planes were destroyed. There was one hell of a fight going on. It lasted for hour and was reported widely.

Speculations and coverups went crazy.

There was even a retalitory attack by Pakistan.

I didn't have anything else do do. I just wanted to see how long he'd hold his composure after he received that moderation warning. He did pretty good. He held his temper in check even though it was against his nature. So that was good. But he did a lot of ducking, dodging and deflecting rather than admit that he was wrong. That was very Tosser-esq. but it's also true of some of our home growns, too.

I don't think he lives in Texas. All that anti-America would get him a broken nose. There are just too many "tells" that give him away as you, I and Redial have noticed. If he gets obnoxious again, no matter to whom, I'll continue to flag him no matter where he lives. I think the rule is 3 within 21 days. And then we start all over again. We don't have to put up with someone whose only purpose is to rile and agitate.

I don't think Tremain knows the finer points of debating without acting like his superiority is being challenged, which is also very Tosser-esq.

Of course, Rcade is the final arbitrator in everything. If he does nothing then we'll know we were wrong or Tremain couldn't be traced through a proxy.
