I think the Pakistanis asked for fee of $ 5000 for every truck up from $ 250 the US was paying..

I don't think the Obama administration has agree to the increase.

The a**holes needed some face saving reprieve and so the US gave them what they asked for to save their face and not $$$$$.

I am an Indian immigrant in Canada...and frankly,the US has to be a lot tougher with Pakistan and even accept that Pakistan might disintegrate.

Amazing how threatening to deny multi Billion $$$ in tax slave funded bribe money will Open a Road. I thought Obama didn't like our boys getting killed and our treasury bankrupted by endless wars in pathetic islamic Holes? Guess he changed his mind. Code Pink and those so called "progressives" would be FURIOUS if he wasn't one of them.

Pakistan was America's blue-eyed boy for long.

SEATO CENTO member.

CIA used Pakistani territory during the Cold War to launch U 2 flights into the erstwhile USSR and into Red China.

The wings of PIA jets were fitted with devices which could sniff radio active fall out from China's nuclear tests.

The 1965 war with India was possible cause USA paid it's errand boy with surplus Korean War surplus...

The Pakistani territory was the staging ground for the Afghan "freedom fighters" to launch attacks on the Soviets in Afghanistan.

Instead of moving in after the USSR left and the country became a free for all during the 90's the US chose to sit idly by and watch the ISI pump in radicals into the country -Taliban!

And,now,the US is spending hundreds of billions to clear up the mess!

Ah,well,that is how politics plays out...very very expensive money wise and lives lost!:(:(:(

The whole of Pakistan,the 180 million of them are on free lunch!

Your army is a parasite on free lunch!

Your civilian politicians with their enormous financial clout is on free lunch!

There is something called "taxes" the rest of the world chooses to pay to their respective governments- you a**holes on a free lunch expect the world to spend for the working of your government!

Now,scoot and just shut the fcuk up???

you think it would be better to let a country with many powerful, radical Islamic factions in it disintigrate? What would be the upside of that? Wouldn't that just be another of your 'mosre costly in the future' bad plans?

Actually,my post was directed at a Pakistani poster here..the seems to believe that the USA is having a 'free lunch' in Pakistan-he meant the transit routes,I think.

No,it would not be a good ideal to abandon Pakistan to Islamic radicals...but,it is time Pakistani establishment and the population in general realized that the biggest threat to Pakistan is from these radicals and they have to take the fight against them themselves and dont expect the West to subsidize it!
