    The 'highly volatile' situation in Pakistan is increasing the likelihood of a US invasion there, Australian parliamentarian Bob Katter has said.

    Independent MP Bob Katter told parliament that the United States would invade Pakistan to deal with instability, and Australia must also send troops there, The Australian reported.

    Speaking during the debate on Afghanistan, he said that the security situation in Pakistan was "highly volatile, " and with the Pakistan government under increasing threat from armed fundamentalist rebels, a US military invasion was inevitable.

    "Having said all those things, there has never been any doubt in my mind that if the Americans go in and they request us to go in, we absolutely must go in," he added.

    However, Greens leader Bob Brown gave a very different view, calling the Afghanistan war a "strategic stuff-up", with former Australia Premier John Howard to blame, along with George W. Bush and Tony Blair.

    The Bush administration bungled its war aims by invading Iraq straight after gaining control of Afghanistan in 2002, he said.

    "John Howard's role as deputy sheriff, or as George Bush put it in this parliament in 2003, a man of steel, cannot be forgotten or disregarded," said Brown, adding, "Our troops are fighting in 2010 because Bush, Howard and others, like Tony Blair, bungled their international ascendancy in 2001-03."

    It is noteworthy the total number of Australian soldiers wounded in action in Afghanistan since 2001 has risen to 156.

    A total of 21 Diggers have been killed over the same period, 10 this year alone.

    Seems an option for US. Pak missiles cant reach US so there will not be any collateral damage.

    but what happens to India...certainly Pak missiles can reach India if not USA...if there is any damage, collateral or whatever that will be to us...If that Aussie MP is guessing correct, if there will be a invasion of Pakistan by USA, Pak will behave like a wild boar...injurd one...running helter-skelter...attacking who ever nearby...this country is already suffering with paranoia...they always feel whatever bad happens inside that country is a clever manipulation of hindus/raw/jew etc etc...they will find/create unlimited reasons to attack India...this westren white folks must think some thing better rather than creating crapy and incoherent ideas...we are already seeing one such great idea in Afghanistan...how well that worked.

    We are totally prepared for that threat. And our Anti-Missile system is much better than what Pakistanis can think of. So just chill and enjoy the self destruction of Pakistan :azn:

    So my first reaction looking at the thread was about eRepublik. Gives an indication of time I am spending there these days :rofl:

    @topic, the scenario does pose a significant short term risk to India but if done right (US has a pretty lousy record there) will solve a significant long term headache once for all.

    If all the theories about India being prepped as a counter weight to China hold true, then this scenario becomes more palusible since removal of Pakistani threat to India is critical for unhindered growth towards that objective..

    thanks for the assurance, I will get a good night sleep now...apart from that I will be more glad to you if you can tell why such preparedness was not there when kargil and 1965 coflicts happened. Thinking we are safe because we have better Anti-Missile system is nothing but self betrayal. We couldn't detect ten bloody terrorists sneaking into our country in broad daylight. Conventional methods for droping nuclear weapons are still effective in our case since our proximity with the Pakistan. Unlike USA and then USSR which were separated by sevaral thousands miles. I don't mind self destruction of Pakistan...but who ever familiar with the history tells that, that land is political nerve center for the entire subcontinent...atleast as of now...any disturbance there is going to affect us in many ways. It is not possible to see the destruction of the entire pakistan with out any destruction on our side. We are not completely isolated from Afghanistan or Pakistan.

    War is not a problem, as citizen of my country I will do what ever possible to support my country if a war forced on us....but I've a genuine problem with those half minded politicians, who think that very complicated wars can be won within six or seven months...or by just destructing one particular country they can free the entire world from terrorism.

    Sirjee... We will get rid of that headache only when there is not a single living person in that area. mass detruction, total annihilation, complete wipe out of a particular country and elimination of entire populace only happens in Biblical tales or may be in our own Puranas. But not in real times...even mighty Nazies failed to do so. If there is no Pakistan, then there would be a loose confederation of tribal fiefdoms. headache might gone but sinusitis just lurking around.

    What a load of nonsense. Why USA would invade Pakistan? There is no logical explanation to this theory.

    By doing so, USA will openly declare enemity towards Pakistan. This would backfire and prove to be a headache in long run. We should remember Headley case. Just think of a number of idiots running around to destroy USA as much as they can. In all sane mindedness, USA would not touch a nation which has thousands of jihadis and millions more have potential to become one. Furthermore, USA can get everything by remaining behind the scene irrespective of form of government or even no government at all.

    Sounds good.

    1965: poor economy because we lost 62 war.

    Kargil: Are you sure we were not prepared?? :azn:

    No body is safe in todays world. We are prepared so that damage can be reduced to minimum.

    Now refer Indian Navy section.
    LIKE??

    Very correct we can not change our neighbors. But do you remember the starting point?? PAK WILL ATTACK INDIA IF US INVADES PAK. Resources will be distributed and hence less headache.

    Disagree. War is the biggest problem. It will eat up our economic resources. About politicians please specify whether you are talking about congress or BJP :lol:
