Finally something I approve–Pakistan

This seems like a much smarter tactic that we’ve been using.  I would probably go much further but then that’s just me.

U.S. Is Deferring Millions in Pakistani Military Aid

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is suspending and, in some cases, canceling hundreds of millions of dollars of aid to the Pakistani military, in a move to chasten Pakistan for expelling American military trainers and to press its army to fight militants more effectively…

…But many of the recent aid curtailments are clearly intended to force the Pakistani military to make a difficult choice between backing the country that finances much of its operations and equipment, or continuing to provide secret support for the Taliban and other militants fighting American soldiers in Afghanistan.

“We have to continue to emphasize with the Pakistanis that in the end it’s in their interest to be able to go after these targets as well,” Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta told reporters on Friday en route to Afghanistan…

…Comments last week by Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also reflected a potentially more confrontational approach to Pakistan.

One thought on “Finally something I approve–Pakistan

  1. I would also agree. I believe a few Militants are in the Pakistani Army and are running Terrorist activities from Inside. They Enjoy our Money and use it to kill us. When I was in Nam we did everything we could to destroy anything that was left behind when we moved out so that it would not come back to bite us. Giving Money to Pakistan is handing them all the Ordinance they want.
