Was there ever a doubt ?
“Pockeystawn” is NOT our friend.
We shoulda blowed it up more as we left?
Or maybe we shoulda blowed up Binnie and took the copter to dump in the ocean...
Not to worry, our Pocky “allies” only showed the parts that were stamped “Made in China”.
Time to befriend India now that the USSR no longer exists.
Is this actually news or a long known given? Must be a slow news day...... =.=
The helicopter was in Pakistan, uninvited.
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!!!!!
That anyone would actually be surprised that the Chinese exact an enormous tribute from the Pakistanis in return is the real headline.
We need Pakistan and they know it. We have over 100,000 troops in neighboring Afghanistan and we can’t effectively supply them through any other route. They don’t need us. Sure, they like our money, but they don’t like us, don’t share our ideas and only helped us because they were fairly sure Bush would have carpet bombed them.
China, on the other hand, is on their border. And there are hints that China’s isolationist military policy might be evolving.
When the Chicoms get their new aircraft carrier into service, there will be a showdown over Taiwan, and Obozo will blink.
Money talks, no body walks. They grab our pieces we grab theirs too. Its all about $$$ in Pakistan. They play both sides.
