Petraeus puts Pakistan in its place

Just in case it didn't know:
The U.S. military will reserve the "right of last resort" to take out threats inside Pakistan, but it would prefer to enable the Pakistani military to do the job itself, Gen. David Petraeus said Monday in an exclusive interview with FOX News.
Pakistan, then, is in a position of 'limited sovereignty', and decisions made there are always subject to the veto of the U.S. military, ostensibly under the direction of the Commander in Chief, though one may have trouble discerning that from the conduct and statements of Gen. Petraeus.
