Is anyone really surprised by this? The notion that Pakistan is our “ally” is a textbook example of the Big Lie. Meanwhile, in the 10 years since 9/11, we let them dramatically increase their nuclear arsenal. I suspect that threat of a Pakistani-made nuke in an American city was the prime motivation behind this sham in the first place.
Huge war coming.
Probably foisted by the State Department as a pretext that they are a buffer against Chinese imperialism in that area. Just my guess.
Bush twisted their arm to force them to act like "reluctant allies" with the assurance that they would not be one of our targets. He called them allies in public to allow them to save a little face. Nobody in their right mind would consider them any sort of ally, they were just restrained from taking any sort of overt military action to deter our efforts. I'm sure the Bush Administration was well aware of the more or less passive agression.
Sadly, Obama wasn't smart enough to understand the tense relationship and openly called Pakistan an enemy during his campaign, which only ensured that they would take a more active role in screwing with us, especially the military generals.
