The cancer is in Pakistan....so does that mean 10 billion dollars in 'aid" is America's idea of chemotherapy?

Actually it is. In the hopes that Pakistanis will reject the cancer (Bin Laden & Co) that is hiding out in their turf.

There is cancer all over the world, anywhere you want to look. So, let us clean ourselves of disease first. Striking out at Pakistan is making everything, the whole world worse. Maybe you should focus on Israel. Without them, we wouldn't be having any of these problems.

Pakistan is not suffering from Cancer. Its suffering from AIDS. AIDS is contagious unlike Cancer.

Cancer is a word used to excuse the worst massacres. This is despicable language. Hamas refers to the Jews of Israel as a cancer and members of Likud say the same about Arabs as a whole.

The fact that a President Palin would be a lot worse does not excuse him.

The words presidents use reveal the lies behind the performance of caring. Obama talks of cancer but these cancers have innocent brothers and children and wives. You really think they are all guilty? All of us have a relative who is or was a criminal or a parent but we are not criminals, should we be killed for their sins? Or should the neighbors of our criminal uncle also be killed? Should those down the road oblivious to your family be killed to? The only way to cut out cancer is to cut healthy flesh out? His use of cancer means he can live with innocents being killed: can we?

He is a cold fish are we all cold and heartless because this slaughter by Drone happens to peasants a world away? Cancer is a terrible word to use.

"The Cancer Is in Pakistan"  
The big question is: Are you proposing radiation treatment?
Your "surgical strikes" don't work.
Sending in the drones keeps someone in Kansas employed.
The Chemo "Surge" apparently was poorly executed.
The distraction of "End of Combat" in Iraq; we all know these military types.
And now the big question is: Are you proposing radiation treatment?

You know, I really hate it when politicians (or anyone for that matter) analogizes the already overued "the cancer is in...blah blah..fill in the blank". I've had bosses use it when firing people (apparently they were the cancers). The world is filled with hate and chemo doesn't do squat against hate. Of course, radiation can kill a lot of people (just ask Japan); does Obama (for whom I voted) want to radiate Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen? We all know any small progress (meaning killing some bad guys) in either Pakistan or Afghanistan just moves the movement of hate into say Somalia. So, get ready, Somalia will soon be a cancer.
In the meantime, thousands of American citizens die every month from treatable cancer because they don't have health insurance.

I've concluded that politicians enter a bizarro world of make-believe; be it communists in their soup, marxists under their bed, or bogeymen in the closet. It's so past time to come home and take care of us here. Terrorists will never go away and we may well have another significant attack. Having soldiers die or kill 5000 miles away won't stop hate, it just foments it.

We're doomed; doesn't matter who's in the white house. Doomsday will just be faster with a right-wing GOP; but it will come under a democrat. We learned NOTHING from Viet Nam nor Russia's own defeat in the mountains of Afghanistan.
I'd like to take a chance on a real pacifist (like Kucinich).

Have we lost enough money to come home now? When you lose your savings in Las Vegas, you go home. How is this different?

Okay, the cancer is in Pakistan. Why are we wasting blood and treasure in Afghanistan? Let me go a step further. May be the cancer is in Saudi Arabia . . . The hijackers, remember?

Obama needs to worry about the cancer in our own country namely banks and outsourcing corporations. I suppose it's easier to play at nation building halfway around the world than to stand up to financial and political interests at home. I huess we'll just have to wait and see how many Afghans vote Democratic in November.

While I am for getting our troops out of Afghanistan, I don't think it is helpful to medicalize this problem. We'd best look at our foreign policy and see what past interference has accomplished. One case in point is Iran.If we were to keep up the medical analogy, in this case our foreign policy preventive medicine turned out to be carcinogenic.
