Ambitious plan to bring together Afghanistan and Pakistan where there's so much tension particularly on the borders and big questions frankly -- about.
How close the Taliban really is.
That the fighters in Afghanistan to getting into Pakistan and somehow to stabilizing that region that would be a terrible thing Pakistan has the nuclear weapons of bombs.
And that's of great concern of a lot of people but the president saying that we want to open the borders.
An -- basically opened them to commerce to try and give people economic hope to turn them away from terrorism.
Brightness claimant thank you so much -- with us today -- -- -- Terry Keenan Bob O'Brien -- -- and Bob let me ask you this.
The Taliban apparently -- advanced within sixty miles of Islamabad and we know that the president and the US government may get seven point five billion in aid.
To the Pakistani government is that enough.
No I don't think it's an updated to try and blunt exactly what's going on I think everybody is prepared for what's going to be a long and protracted.
Battle the question is.
You don't from the market's perspective from our perspective how -- how do we interpret this does -- create a level of uncertainty in the something that we saw.
Throughout 2001 in 2002.
Does that sort of unsettled the market enough with the threat of some sort of overhang if you especially if you're talking about nuclear capability is that enough to really come -- into -- Later Todd you would know better than we how dramatically.
Easy it is -- -- -- a market around with headlines -- if something were to happen does this not make the rally that we've seen that everybody's so excited about.
Yes it does make it fragile -- But when -- win this situation does happen.
If you have -- the before the situation you're gonna see the market sell off.

Markets soared on that or if you go back to 1991 we invaded I -- the first stock market soared again so.
If I -- -- the buildup to it yes you could see this market and our rally be impacted.
You know Kerry would win and we've been covering markets Liz Robbins -- everybody here has been covering the markets.
Every time North Korea shot off a missile or there is a threat to Saudi Arabia's oil facilities he did see the market boomerang around for a day.
I think -- is right I think the markets are way too -- fragile to have any kind of negative development happening in this region.
Yeah I think was the problem is that this is going to be an ongoing situation of the president's going after address and you can just imagine what he sees every day in his -- security briefings because.
He -- -- you know for somebody -- mr.
cool when he starts talking about the situation in Pakistan you can you can hear the edge in his -- And when he had -- press conference last week he used the word -- -- cities gravely concerned so I think there's something really have to keep an.
Joanna it's one thing to worry about money it's another to worry about terrorism and safety of the the entire globe here they're now calling this region half pack for Afghanistan Pakistan.
Obviously he's met with Hamid Karzai the president of Afghanistan what could he possibly say this is the guy.
Who has allowed at the Taliban to get within sixty miles of of -- -- -- -- Yet you know what I think this could have somewhat of an effect on market.
But Americans tend to think about America and unless we're talking about Americana -- maybe China or something.
I think it's not gonna hold the markets down all that much I agree with -- I think yeah I think they'll come back.
Right can take you --
