Give more military assistance to Pakistan: Powell to US

How can someone with such hard core military experience be so unbelievably naive?
Washington : With the world's most wanted terrorist Osama bin Laden still elusive, the Obama administration must give Pakistan Army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani adequate mobility or intelligence capability he needs to win the war against terror, former US Secretary of State Colin Powell has said.

Powell, who recently met Kayani at his home, said the Pakistani Army chief was facing a tough task in the war against terror along the Pak-Afghan border.

"He's got a tough problem. This is the most difficult terrain imaginable. And he has troops, but he doesn't have the kind of mobility or intelligence capability that he needs," Powell said.

With so much experience in heading military operations Colin Powell’s remarks can hardly fall on deaf ears. Being a symbol of American determination during the Gulf War, he has professional skills and insight, which can still be of great help in the process of dealing with Pakistan.

His judgement of late has however been atrocious.
