dude, you didn't really get the gist of my post, or did you..?
I didnt say that the US has an absolute command over the world's nations (and hence the majority of people therein), read my post again, I specifically used the word armies (including governments)...
Now, coming to the points you've raised:
Try the biggest US Military presence in the world; namely Iraq and Afghanistan. Are they in command??? Really?
I know they're not in command, and the credit for that goes to...??? Iraqi/Afg Army/Govt OR the ones offering resistance to them, the so called militant insurgents...hmmmm?
If they wre e really in command of these areas and Pakistan Army? would they be using un-manned aircrafts to patrol these areas stealthily?
dude, dont be such a credulous bloke.. your pak army/govt is in cahoots with the US over these drone attacks.. there is a base in balochistan from where the CIA operates these drones.. They have a tacit agreement and full support of your army.. and no, this hasn't come to me as a divine revelation..
Were you not watching the news when they drones were hacked with the help of a software that costs $26 on the internet?

I see Insurgents hack U.S. Drones.. nowhere do I see that Iraqi Army/Govt hacks U.S. Drones... you getting there amigo? I hope by now you should have understood the point i'm trying to make..!
Did you not read the newspapers when the American newspapers said that Pak Army is doing a better job of tackling the terrorists than the US and Allied coalition? and that they should send their troops to Pakistan for training?
dude, as far as I know, I didn't even mention once that pakistani army might not be capable or something (capable or not, it doesnt really concern an average man, like me :rolleyes:)... whatever it is, it is under total and absolute command of the US..
So then why should the US even bother about wasting their time and resources in training their army, when they can direct such very capable (according to you) armies to safeguard and secure their interests..?? (H)
Come to think of it this way, majority of us can very well carryout our mundane household chores, but yet we employ staff and servants and drivers etc., why is that so? just to make our lives easier!!
the countries you've mentioned (including pakistan) are not under complete command of the US not because of the army, but the credit for that goes to those people who are offering resistence to them (aka the Islamic Militants) and that part of the nation which does not support this war..
