How to win friends and influence people, the US way...

Apparently in order to get Pakistan to stand shoulder to shoulder with the US ...

The United States threatened to bomb Pakistan "back to the stone age" unless it joined the fight against al-Qaeda, President Pervez Musharraf says.
General Musharraf said the warning was delivered by former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage to Pakistan's intelligence director.

The response to this :

"I think it was a very rude remark," Mr Musharraf told CBS television.

Understatement indeed !!
