Nope. Pak-town is like insane hot girlfriends...they cheat on you when they have the chance but you keep them because they’re great in the sack and they have hotter girlfriends so you tolerate them.

Wouldn't it make more sense to stop sending our national wealth to China in the first place - it's the reason we face a future war with China. WE ARE PAYING FOR THE CHINESE MILITARY BUILDUP

Yes, that may be the case... they may have been
uninvited... and I might also point out that the
Twin Towers was uninvited also, Jerk.

yes, and Pakistan was officially our ally,
and they lied about Obama living there.
...even Indian intelligence knew it 2 years ago.

Obama knew for months prior to the execution,
and turned down at least 2 previous plans.
but Pakistan never stepped up and delivered him.

so Pakistan has no right to complain,
and in fact should be grateful we didn’t do a lot more,
to the nation that was knowingly harboring bin Laden.

people were coming openly to visit bin Laden.
it is impossible that the ISI didn’t know.

Figures! What has this man ever done that’s not to our disadvantage. Geeezzzz

Some democrat asked me “is there ANYTHING Obama did that you agreed with?”

I remember there was one thing but I forgot what it was. I’m still thinking...

Ah, yes... extending the Bush cuts! (But in reality that was Bill Clinton’s idea. That was the day ObamAA+ had to leave for one of those vacations... this one was in Hawaii... and Bill Clinton took over for a while because Obama said “we were in good hands”

I wish I could remember that democrat so I could give them my answer.

Since China owns 40% of our debt, I’m sure they were simply checking out one of their investments. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

lol, that’s an “interesting” analogy since there is nothing desirable or pleasurable about being connected with Pakistan (or any of its “hot friends”) ha ha.... but I agree with the point that we put up with the bastards because we think the alternative of being without them is worse!

I agree with all your points. I just wanted to make one simple observation. Allies don't harbour your enemies — nor do allies send in war machines, uninvited.
