2008....ditto,..alternative energy push...

In civilized countries this is called extortion...

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

-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.

We're only in afghanistan because pakistan created the taliban.
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.
