AFPAK
 n.— Note: A blend of AFghanistan and PAKistan. «In the two-front war that Washington is now calling “AFPAK,” there’s more head-scratching going on than is immediately visible. Yes, President Barack Obama last week approved a Pentagon request to send 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan. But at the same time, he has ordered a strategy review to make sure the U.S. isn’t marching blindly into what historians call “the graveyard of empires.”» —“Remember AFPAK; it’s new Obama war acronym” by David Ignatius Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (Tupelo) Feb. 22, 2009.
