Pakistan

While most of the headlines go to Syria and Iran, the train wreck in Afghanistan is moving the US towards a more confrontational pose with Pakistan. It's hard to see how that is good for anyone, except possibly China and Russia.

But the Obama administration, even while using the most vile means, continues to pretend that moral posing will lead to policy success. Sure, it enthralls the witless, shitless Europeans, and has the full drum pounding support of the press, but it accomplishes nothing with people who have to live with the reality of US policy, and see the lies in the moral rhetoric first hand.

The leadership of Pakistan is obviously corrupt and self-serving (who ain't?), but betting on their being willing to commit suicide to keep the US bribes rolling in defies logic. But that's why Obama is so dangerous, in his mind he is the moral party, no matter what actions he takes and their consequences. All must bow down before his holiness.

All elites practice double-think, the necessity to justify terrible actions is a common human trait. But this current crop in Washington, even more than the last (and believe me, I didn't think that possible), are reaching 1984 levels.

The escalation of the drone war in Pakistan aims to punish Pakistan's leadership with their people. The closing of the transit roots must be hurting more than they are letting on, but the only response can be more pressure, never accommodation, nor, God forbid, apologies.

US Assistant Secretary of Defence Peter Lavoy is in Islamabad asking for a meeting with Pakistan Chief of Staff Kiani, and not getting it. Meanwhile, Panetta says the US is running out of patience with Pakistan. But patience is a two way street.

The war between humans, orcs and elves continues. Lead your race through a series of epic battles, using your crossbow to fend off foes and sending out units to destroy castles. Researching and upgrading wisely will be crucial to your success! There are 5 ages total and each one will bring you new units to train to fight in the war for you cause.

Whatever you do, don’t neglect your home base because you cannot repair it and once it is destroyed, you lose! Age of War is the first game of the series and really sets the tone for the Age of War games . Also try out the Age of Defense series as it is pretty similar.
In this game, you start at the cavern men’s age, then evolve! There is a total of 5 ages, each with its units and turrets. Take control of 16 different units and 15 different turrets to defend your base and destroy your enemy.

The goal of the game also differs depending on the level. In most levels the goal is to reach a finish line or to collect tokens. Many levels feature alternate or nonexistent goals for the player.
