The head of Pakistan’s army, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani is Big-Assing. He has had enough of the Americans and will take any further ‘misadventures’ such as the killing of Bin Laden as a violation of Pakistani sovereignty and it would lead to a reconsideration of the relationship with the United States.
The statement by the army’s press office said, “Any similar action violating the sovereignty of Pakistan will warrant a review on the level of military/intelligence cooperation with the United States.”
General Kayani had decided that the number of American troops in Pakistan was to be reduced “to the minimum essential,” the statement said.
He did not specify the exact number of American troops asked to leave Pakistan, and it was not clear that the level was below what Pakistan had previously demanded after a C.I.A. contractor shot and killed two Pakistanis in January.
Could it be that the general is embarrassed because his army didn’t know the raid was coming off? Could it also be a mass murderer was hiding right under the noses of the military in a garrison city caused some embarrassment?
Has the general ever thought that his big-assing might be costing his country billions with a B? Screw him. Pakistan has much to explain to the United States. Hopefully they will stop rattling their sabers. It makes them look stupid.
Choose your hat and your horse. It’s the Kentucky Derby! Horse racing fans are headed to Louisville to participate in the annual opening volley for the Triple Crown. We have not had a triple crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
The 70′s brought 3 Triple Crown winners. Secretariat in 1973, and Seattle Slew in 1977. Before Secretariat, the previous thoroughbred to win the Triple Crown was Citation in 1948. There were 4 Triple Crown winners in the 40′s. Then nothing for 2 decades. We have not had a Triple Crown winner for 33 years.
The field is full this year. To see the contestants, or horse athletes as they are sometimes called, go to the Kentucky Derby website. This year is the 137th Kentucky Derby. The Derby is the first leg of the Triple Crown. The Preakness Stakes and the Belmont will wrap up the series to declare a Triple Crown winner.
I have chosen my horse–Pants on Fire. Pants on Fire (#7) will be ridden by Anna Napravnik. Favorite jockey Calvin Borel will ride Twice the Appeal, (#9). I may switch by tomorrow, or put money on 2 horses.
The race begins around 6 pm tomorrow. It has been described the most exciting 2 minutes in sports. The winner will stand under a blanket of red roses, one of the official symbols of the Kentucky Derby. Dan Fogelbery recorded the now famous song, Run for the Roses.
