A Voice in the Wilderness In Defense of "Mere Conservatism"

Good News From Pakistan

In today's Times of London we read this:

Pakistan_1__691975aPakistani forces have taken control of a warren of caves that served until recently as the nerve centre of the Taleban and al-Qaeda and sheltered Ayman al-Zawahiri, the second-in-command to Osama bin Laden.

“It was the main hub of militancy where al-Qaeda operatives had moved freely,” Major-General Tariq Khan, the Pakistan regional commander, said as he gave journalists a tour of Damadola yesterday.

The village, nestling among snow-capped peaks in the Bajaur region along the Afghan border, has been fought over for 16 months. It is the first time that the Pakistani Army has set foot in the village, which had long been dominated by the insurgents operating on the both sides of the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Pakistan is by no means a stable nation, but we ought to praise our allies in the War on Terror when they score a victory for our "side".  There is REAL change in the attitude of the Pakistani military in terms of their willingness to help our efforts in Afghanistan. 

Here is more on Pakistan's role from The Heritage Foundation.

What is “Mere Conservatism”?

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
