Defeating Terrorism, One Mango at a Time

Hillary Clinton is in Pakistan, and, as you’ll soon learn from a CNN reporter, she may have discovered the secret to bringing down militants in the area: Mangos:

Hillary Clinton has lots to worry about in Pakistan, but she has found one thing she can wholeheartedly embrace: Pakistani mangos.

The U.S. Secretary of State was treated to a mango dessert during dinner with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and they clearly won a fan — Clinton repeatedly raved about the fruit.

“We’ll get a lot of people hooked on Pakistani mangos,” Clinton told a “townhall”-style meeting in Islamabad, where she was on an official visit.

Mangos came up again at a press conference with Pakistan’s foreign minister, and yet again at a roundtable with Pakistani journalists.
[…]
Clinton suggested mangos might be one place to start when discussing benefits of better trade cooperation, including Pakistani requests for improved market access.

CNN’s Pakistan-based international correspondent explains how Hillary’s “peace through mangoes” program will work:

SAYAH: “Well, I think the U.S., the Obama administration, is convinced that this is the right approach. In addition to the military approach, you have to have an economic approach. They say it’s an interesting project here. If Mrs. Clinton has her way in the months and years to come, Pakistan will export more of its delicious and very juicy mangoes. Americans will eat them. It will all be a part of the fight against militants.”

Why can’t Hillary just hand ’em that stupid “re-set” button and make it all better just like she did with Russia?

Besides, I’m not sure if I can handle any more food — I’ve already been eating dried fruit and nuts by the bushel to help bring down the Taliban in Afghanistan and so far it’s not having much of an effect.

In any case, Bill Clinton stayed behind as Hillary flew overseas and is busy grabbing as many mangoes as possible to do his part for the war effort.
