Pakistan is no Friend of Ours

Time to realize it.

A senior official in Pakistan’s civilian government told ABC News, “Elements of Pakistan intelligence — probably rogue or retired — were involved in aiding, abetting and sheltering the leader of al Qaeda,” the strongest public statement yet from the Pakistani government after the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound.  This is based on the government’s judgment that the number of years bin Laden spent in Abbottabad — and it now appears in a village outside the city of Haripur — would have been impossible without help, possibly from someone in the middle tier of ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence agency, who grew up fighting alongside the mujahidin against the Soviets, said the official.

There will always be elements of the Pakistani military that are willing to betray American interests while at the same time holding their hands out for aid.  It’s time for the US government to face the hard cold facts and end all aid and cooperation.  It’s like cooperating with Iran and believing they have no ulterior motive.  It’s, to put it bluntly, a pact with the devil.

    For the American and really the whole Free World, we know that Pakistan must be sought out and brought into some form of stability and hopefully peaceful dialogue with the West. With their nuclear weapons, this is simply a must for the region. So we cannot just simply cut and run! It is just not that simple.

    They aren’t a friend or ally. Cut the money cord. They can find their own way.

    Anyone can see that the Middle East is going thru changes, the Muslim countries. People there are beginning to desire personal freedoms and democratic ideas. If the West looses Pakistan to Radical Islam, it could mean a greater lose than we can even imagine! Right now we have a chance perhaps to change the whole region, with the hopes for their democracy! And Pakistan will be a leader in the whole area, one way or the other. We should note the British have been in that part of the world for a very long time. They know the value and strategic nature of Afganistan and Pakistan! I hope the Americans continue to also?
