From a press conference given by President Obama on Monday:
It's not acceptable for Pakistan or for us to have folks who, with impunity, will kill innocent men, women and children... Well, Mr. Holbrooke is there, and that's exactly why he's being sent there, because I think that we have to make sure that Pakistan is a stalwart ally with us in battling this terrorist threat.
'Battling' is a bit warlike, don't you think? Just as there are those who say that you can't make war on a tactic, because a tactic isn't a country, so one might say here that you can't do battle with a threat, only with an army. Better not to say this, though; better to look to one's intelligence. The FKATWOT count reaches 10.
