Remind Me Why We’re Aiding Pakistan?

12 Apr

Pakistan has temporarily stopped cooperating with American intelligence officials after the upset caused by the arrest and release of CIA contractor Raymond Davis, who fatally shot two Pakistanis earlier this year, a senior Pakistani security source told CNN. While the two countries will continue to share vital intelligence about any imminent acts of terrorism, joint operations have been put on hold, the source said, and the ISI — Pakistan’s intelligence agency — has asked the CIA to “give them visibility” over what the source says are an estimated 40 covert American intelligence operatives working in Pakistan.

Because pumping billions into the cesspool called the government of Pakistan is simply wasted money. They aren’t allies. Anything but.  The US needs to end foreign aid and concentrate on its own crumbling society.

    Would you advocate a wholesale revocation of international funding (for whatever “interests”), sort of a throwback to the isolationism of the early colonists?

    I agree that aid to Pakistan by both the US and UK should be limited to a wide range of humanitarian, medical and educational projects and that we should insist on some rapid progress on human rights issues, protrction of women from domestic abuse, rape etc and the freedom of worship for non-Muslims including Christians, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists. Of course the vested interests of the Western arms manufacturers and many others will ensure that this does not happen.

    So, the big question is, why do the US and UK need Pakistan so badly, that they do not mind pouring in tens of billions of dollars into the pitless hole called Pakistan …. ?

    The answer would be found in the evil of the western world unleashed on the rest of the world in the name of self interests.

    Any partnership with evil Pakistan is nothing less than sin ………….. !
