In the wake of Osama bin Laden’s death, the United States should shift its focus from Afghanistan to Pakistan, says former New Hampshire GOP Sen. Judd Gregg. “Afghanistan should never have been about building a nation, since there has never been a buildable nation there,” Gregg writes in The Hill
“It was about delivering a message that we could project power halfway around the world in a manner to destroy those who would harbor or support terrorist groups that target America.” Military and intelligence personnel did this brilliantly, Gregg says.
“Now is the time to move on. We have other concerns in the world that should weigh much more heavily in favor of our involvement. One of them is next door, in Pakistan. Pakistan is deteriorating rapidly as an ally.” A key goal should be improving relations between Pakistan and India, he says.
