Hmmmmm.......looks to me like Obama has really screwed things up over there. We certainly didn’t have this problem under President Bush. So much for Obama’s foreign policy of bowing and cowtowing to American’s enemies.

Hmmmmm.......looks to me like Obama has really screwed things up over there.
I guess all the feel good saber rattling by the Predator in Chief and his DC ladies is really working out.
Another heckuva job, Obie!!!

We are in a de-facto war against Pakistan. We fly drones into there everyday, and shoot at them.

Obama’s Poki-staun is holding out for another $$$$ check. We wrote one after OBL and now they want another one.

The claimed tax revenue loss is said to be PK Rs35 billion, which coverts to roughly US $404 million. Not exactly small change. The Obama administration will, of course, make some sort of arrangement to keep the petroleum products flowing and the Pakistani government will continue to do what it does best:
-Provide safe-harbor the Taliban,
-Train militants for operations in Afghanistan against the United States,
-Supply weapons and funding to terrorist groups through the ISI,
-Fail to protect the fuel convoys and depots in the tribal regions and, last, but not least,
-Act surprised and hurt whenever anyone calls them on it.
What a swell bunch of ...well, never mind. Just business as usual with our erstwhile allies.

They can kiss that $1.8 billion a year in aid bye bye. I don’t even want to hear that we are giving them a dime.

This would have happened eventually regardless of Bush or Obama. Pakistan was never a friend, it was always an enemy. Neither Bush nor Obama saw it coming and instead poured billions of dollars down the throats of enemies. Both Bush and Obama are epic failures.
