Pakistan takes a turn as set out in Pakistan takes command of CTF 150 in Bahrain:
The Pakistani navy took over command of Combined Task Force 150 in Middle Eastern waters Wednesday at a ceremony at Naval Support Activity Bahrain.

CTF 150 is tasked with patrolling the waters of the Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman, Red Sea and the western Indian Ocean. The multinational partnership includes ships from France, Pakistan, the United Kingdom and the U.S

Pakistani Commodore Khan Hasham Bin Saddique relieved French Rear Adm. Alain Hinden, who commanded the task force for 120 days.
“Coalition forces are at the forefront of maritime security operations daily,” Cosgriff {NB E1: VADM Cosgrove- commander, Naval Forces Central Command, 5th Fleet, and head of Combined Maritime Forces} said in the statement. “We are protecting essential maritime infrastructure while we continuously expand and strengthen our coalition individual and collective capabilities.”
I wonder how many Democrats calling for an invasion of Pakistan it will take to screw this positive relationship up?
