    India and Pakistan have agreed to US requests for co-operation. They are truly between a rock and a hard place.

    One of the things that is truly gratifying to see is that Bush and Powell have taken the gloves off. Their message to pretty much every country has been : Are you with us or are you against us? Decide. And live with the consequences of your choice.

    That's got to be pretty sobering to be on the receiving end of that message, if you know a bit of history.

    BTW, I notice all the Uncle Cheney jokes have stopped...

    Yeah, you're right. They are at least presenting a united front.

    Those people in that part of the world will pay a price, either way. I guess they realize they're better off on the winning side.
