Posted on 05/28/2012 7:56:29 AM PDT by yoe
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Sunday that the United States is not about to get gouged by Pakistan which despite having received billions in U.S. aid is demanding $5,000 for every truck that carries supplies into Afghanistan across its border.
The dispute over the border crossing is once again in the spotlight after Pakistan sentenced to 33 years in prison the Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA track down Usama bin Laden.
Panetta on Sunday called that decision disturbing, though he said the U.S. government will continue to work at its troubled relationship with Pakistan. Yet with Islamabad continuing to try and extract money from the U.S. over the still-closed border crossing, Panetta insisted Sunday that the United States will only pay a fair price for that access.
Were not about to get gouged in the price. We want a fair price, Panetta said on ABCs This Week.
Call or fax your elected demanding we fire Pakistan as an allie....even if they are nuclear armed as they use our 'aid' dollars to them to pay off the Taliban in weapons....
Joke’s on Pakistan. Our money is increasingly worthless.
.......which is an oxymoron.
I thought the US had the anti-button to those nukes, in the event they fell into the hands of jihadists.
I need to think of a new business plan....
Cut all aid to that wothless country.
)YEP, I'M LAZY TODAY.)
Pakistan is another garbage pile of Muslim extremists. I am in total favor of declaring them part of the axis of evil and cut off all aid. As for the nukes, they will supply any enemy of our with them and may have now. Pakistan is not to be trusted and their word is worthless.
Just call a news conference and just say we are diverting all aid to Pakistan to India. Whether we do it or not, it most certainly would get their attention.
On second thought, just say screw them all and send nothing to anyone except Israel.
Please Posture for Perception Prior to Paying, Professional Pussy Panetta.
A friend from Pakistan, who has wealth, said that many wealthy people from Pakistan go to other countries to raise their children as they are worried that they may be targets in Pakistan because of their wealth. They worry that they can’t keep their children safe in Pakistan. Says a lot about the state of things there.

Isn’;t that the Doctor that Obama ratted out?
Did he rat out the Doctor before or after he ratted out the Seals.
Panetta is just flapping his jaws. He will pay whatever the Paki’s want him to pay and we will never hear of the deal. Especially since the Media is on board the Obama train.
Disintegrating Pseudostate ping. Thanks yoe.
BTW, I’m talkin’ about Pakistan.
Give them the 5k and deduct it along with appropriate administrative fee.s from the handouts we give them annually.
Curious if Obama, and his Leftist associates had kept their mouths shut about OBL’s shootemup if this would even be happening now.
I’d bet the circumstances with Pakistan would be different today, and a bunch of Navy Seals would be alive as well.
Obama, and associates insatiable hunger for fame, and notoriety (misguided for votes) are the cause of so much grief.
The idea that we're interferring with Islamic Law for one of their own is ridiculous. Hell, we shot our other helper...the courier.
Ironically oxymoronic, even, which is the worst kind.
I say we give them the equivalent worth in ammunition, delivered by B-52 and A-10.
Give ‘em nothing!! Sever all ties with Pawkestawn and tell them to blow it out their arse. No money, no aid, no recognition, nada. Oh, and let the military give them some lovely parting gifts.
