Pakistan has been playing us for fools for decades. We give them Billions in free aid, and they hide Osama Bin Laden 2 blocks from their military college.

At the very latest when we found them hiding bin Laden.

Our past presidents have been career politicians who hate to rock the boat.

Our current president was a businessman all his life before running for president.

Birds of different feathers, and that makes a YUGE difference. Trump is not afraid to act where his instincts lead him. He does not need a political career.

I have literally never heard a single good thing about Pakistan.

Maybe they is one trivial positive aspect to the country, like a tasty food dish, but on things that matter, the place is entirely a negative for the world.

Pakistan is the worst country in the world

It should be cut off completely from the US dollar system, and have a giant fence put up around it, to keep its illness confined.

Note that Taliban was conceived and nurtured by ISI in Pakistan (their CIA). Taliban then took over Afghanistan and Afghanistan gave sanctuary to Osama Bin Laden. When US military had Osama on the run, where does he go? Pakistan!

And Pakistan helped North Korea to develop nukes. Pakistan has been milking United States for decades for free foreign aid.

I wish all foreigners were blacked from studying in the US - especially the Chinese and Indians. We are training our enemies. All so that the universities can get tuition money and indoctrinate/brainwash the American students

“...programs that have been a hallmark of bilateral military relations for more than a decade, U.S. officials say.”

That would be about the time Obama became the first Muslim president, right?

But, but, if we don’t give them money, they might harbor terrorists or something.

Why doesn’t Trump cut the NFL loose too while he is cutting ties. No way the Dept of Defense should continue to provide support to these duds.

Pakistan came into existence because Moslims couldn’t find a way to get along even with Gandhi.

Excellent! Long overdue.

The Pakis have been playing endless rounds of taqqiya with us for more than four decades. India, an authentically democratic country, is our natural ally in the region.

Actually it was more than just Gandhi, because if there was one person in India who wanted to get along with everyone, was him. It had lot more to do with Muslims not wanting to live under Hindu majority, even though India’s constitution established a secular country with no official national religion. Pakistan of course has Islam as the official religion of the country.

Yes they are pretty awful.

Also remember the 2008 islamic terrorist attack in Mumbai, India - something like 160 people killed in multiple locations, including a Jewish couple tortured to death - by a team of a dozen trained jihadists - all from Pakistan, who were in radio communication with their Pakistan-based handlers during the slaughter.

The sole captured jihadist says the ISI helped train them. The Pakistan government let the Pakistan ringleaders slip free.

The UK decided to import Pakistani values via mass migration.

They now have organized Pakistani child-rape teams in every major city.
