Pakiwhat? Afghaninhuh?
Posted by Patrick Barry

Adam is right to point to John McCain's interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review -- it's full of obtuse, disjointed, and otherwise impenetrable commentary, precisely the fuzziness that we've come to expect from his campaign.  However, his remarks on Pakistan and Afghanistan are especially frightening for the depth of confusion on display.  Just take a look at this quote on the subject of Karzai's relations with Pakistan's government:

"I think if there is some good news, I think that there is a glimmer of improving relationship between Karzai and the Pakistanis."

Just what "glimmer" is McCain talking about??  Maybe he's referring to President Karzai's remarks last month, which threatened military action in Pakistan if cross-border attacks persisted?  Or maybe McCain is talking about Afghanistan's allegations that Pakistan's ISI was involved in a recent assassination attempt on Karzai?  Maybe in McCain's world you could call that a silver-lining, but in reality-land I'd call it something else.

Seriously, there have been NUMEROUS reports from press, think-tank and Pentagon sources lamenting a deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan and worsening relations between their respective governments.  It isn't as if the coverage isn't there.  It is.  Yet despite the general agreement that the situation is bad, getting worse, and demands greater U.S. attention, John McCain can't even grasp the most basic developments.  Looking at the way that reality continues to hem his supposed national security expertise really makes one wonder how he got the reputation in the first place.

I suppose it is thethickness of Replica Jacques Lemans that insulates the movement.The luminosity of tReplica Jaeger LeCoultre is great; large hands and markers ensure plenty of room for luminous paint, and I seldom found myself wishing the Holotype glowed more brightly. The 12 o'clock arrow on the bezel is also painted and glows like a torch, a nice Replica Levis for timing events in less than ideal light. Esthetically, the yellow dial is so much better then I had guesed it would be. I usually stick to black dials on most of my Replica Longines, but I thought I would give the yellow dial a try and I am very glad I did. It is bright and seems to be a semi gloss that reflects just enough light that it stands out from the PVD case.   The bracelet Replica Mont Blanc the case in every way. It is thick, solid, quiet, smooth, and didn't pull a single hair from my wrist. All of the links are screwed together so sizing the bracelet is Replica Movado. A quick word of warning: the screws do not seem especially tight from the factory so I recommend sizing he bracelet then tightening each link completely (my failure to do so cost me a tiny screw). You might even consider a little Loctite 242 (Replica Omega). The fold over clasp has a push button release, and has a very secure fliplock. The end links are solid and secured by 24mm screws.The packaging on the Holotype is far more then one would expect. My unit shipped in at tan colored faux leather travel case that houses the watch, warranty card, manual, tools, rubber strap, and polishing cloth.
