No real surprise, but there need to be consequences for Pakistan. It's hard to see what the Pakistanis could do to us as enemies that they aren't doing to us now as "allies". Throwing billions in tax dollars to this treacherous failed state is simply an insult to US taxpayers.

Isn’t China rewarding Pakistan with a whole squadron of their top line fighter jets?

We should cut all aid to Pakistan. They are blackmailing us and then double crossing us on the blackmail pay-offs.

Pakistan needs to be the recipient of a few EMPs over their major cities. It’ll send a clear message to the world that this type of behavior is completely unacceptable.

>We should cut all aid to Pakistan.<

.
We still send aid to China, for crying out loud.

It’s like sending aid to the bank you owe your mortgage to.

I agree with what you are saying but someone on our side needs to be accountable. This was predictable, and I want to know why we did’t return to destroy the aircraft? Who is responsible for making that call and why wasn’t it made?

Nice “stealth” helicopter. It got shot down.

I thought this unit had internal issues and crashed on its own. Do you know for sure that it was shot down?

It crashed. It wasn’t shot down. You are thinking of the helo from a couple of weeks ago.

We don’t know for sure what happened to it. We only know the end result.

We certainly shouldn’t believe the story given.

It may well have been shot down.

If we cut them loose and the government becomes unstable enough to fall, they have nuclear weapons that certain radical groups would love to get their hands on. Maybe we are just pursuing the course of “lesser of two evils”.

Pakistan was actively protecting Osama bin Laden, America’s number one enemy...

There were no consequences for that - which was really an act of war...

We should never trust any islamic country...they are permitted by their “religion” to lie to any non-muslim in order to further the muslim caliphate. That lying should of course be expected under any circumstance since the overall goal of islam is to establish a world wide caliphate. To consider them an ally? We have to be fools to do so.
