I didn't see the actual debate, only second hand news reports, but did Obama really say that he would attack Pakistan if he thought bin Laden was there?

I watched and took it that he said that IF Bin Laden was known to be over the border AND Pakistan refused to go after him, then he would be prepared to go in and get him.

This was not saying he would attack Pakistan - I hope!!
(Apologies, caps were for emphasis, not shouting!).

On wonders what the US reaction would have been if, twenty years ago, one of our politicians had said that we were prepared to cross the border into Ireland to get senior PIRA commanders who were known to be there!

As an insomniac I heard the actual debate via headphones on Radio 5 in the early hours and fell asleep much earlier than I have done for a very long time.

"Do you remember the good old days when George W was President?"

Or how about the good old days when John Major was Prim-Minister.

The whole thing live....Frankly they both come over as bland, hollow individuals with very little substance in the way of policy.

Remind you of anyone?

Is McCain a real person? He looks a bit android to me.

Tried it but it didn't work.
