problems we face now to some extent we have to take responsibility for, having contributed to it. We also have a history of kind of moving in and out of Pakistan, she said.
Lets remember here the people we are fighting today we funded them twenty years ago and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union.
They invaded Afghanistan and we did not want to see them control Central Asia and we went to work and it was President Reagan in partnership with Congress led by Democrats who said you know what it sounds like a pretty good idea lets deal with the ISI and the Pakistan military and lets go recruit these mujahideen.
And great, let them come from Saudi Arabia and other countries, importing their Wahabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union.
And guess what they (Soviets) retreated they lost billions of dollars and it led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.
So there is a very strong argument which is it wasnt a bad investment in terms of Soviet Union but lets be careful with what we sow because we will harvest

,All these are objective realities and only a fantasy monger or a liar would dare deny what USA did in the name of expediency and emerging consequences,should be handled accordingly.

The see-saw of Pak-US relations

March 28, 2011

By Khalid Iqbal

Interstate relations with America are akin to living on a river bank that changes its course every four years, leaving the other party either in flood or drought. However, in case of Pakistan these relations function on day-to-day basis with each side issuing ‘to-do lists’ frequently. That too with an urgency call of ‘should have been done yesterday’. Nevertheless, stresses caused by this sort of perpetual ‘breathing down the neck’ approach causes frequent ruptures.

The Pak-US relationship has generally remained transactional and marred by mistrust. This is indeed a strategic dysfunction that is undercutting the durability and maturity of these relations. America is quick to bail out Pakistan when in trouble, be they natural disasters or manmade calamities, but then suddenly it decides to walk a couple of steps back rather crudely, and loses the genuinely earned public goodwill. Soon, the cycle restarts!
The Raymond Davis affair has, yet once again, brought the prospect of fragility in this relationship and the pitfalls of not being on the same page at all levels. According to the details of the understanding reached between the two sides, after the spy’s release, the US will pull out as many as 331 Americans of Davis type, involved in espionage and subversive activities under diplomatic cover. Thus, it reinforces the perception that the US runs covert operations within Pakistan.
However, there were certainly better ways to resolve the issue in a win-win setting. But the indecent haste has left a bad taste in the mouth of the stakeholders. Suspension and slowing down of the financial aid only hardened the popular anti-American sentiment cutting across the political divide.
Likewise, washing of dirty linen with a fanfare corrodes the perspective in the US as well; questions are asked about the futility of aid to a country whose people dislike America. Though the mainstream political parties stay away from the anti-American public demonstrations, yet the pitch of noise generated in Pakistan on the eve of every such row is baffling to the American public. Hence, the political space in the US for supporting a strategic relationship with Pakistan has shrunk incrementally.
Furthermore, there is a widespread perception in America that Pakistan is supportive of the Afghan Taliban factions, which attack the foreign forces in Afghanistan; it takes on only those Taliban that attack Pakistan, and the Afghan Taliban elements operate from FATA against the US and NATO forces in Afghanistan. America considers that the drone strikes against targets in FATA legitimate use of force, since they are with the consent of the Pakistani leadership. The US is critical of governance and law enforcement inadequacies in Pakistan and frequently counsels it to augment revenue generation capacity and broaden the tax net. It also does not believe the Pakistani perception of a threat from India to its security.
Periodically, the US media and think tanks churn out fearsome speculations about ‘Pakistan’s nukes’ not being secure enough; they also portray the span and growth rate of the Pakistani nuclear programme that is much larger than life size. Over projection of indicators to hint at rapid radicalisation of the society and the meltdown of its economy are also a favourite pastime of US intellectuals.

Obama is in meetings with Israel in the WH today.
It should be on the news. The media is not reporting the full story on what is going on in the Middle East.
The uprisings is NOT over oil or democracy it for an one world order that has been in the making for decades.
Obama and company should let these Muslims fight among them self They have been fighting for centuries with no US interference. WHY NOW.
It's all the doing of Iran. Why has Iran been silent in all the uprising.Add 2 and 2 Obama is playing the game with Iran.
We are in act 3 of 5 We need to get out of Libya now. The rebels are now blaming the US for their people being killed. Saying that the US didn't do enough. Next they will be firing on the US., they have already turned against us/
These rebels are AlQuida. Obama and company had to knew this and he was complicating giving them arms.

NEW YORK MOM WHO KILLED SELF, 3 KIDS LEFT DYING MESSAGE

(FOX NEWS)--The overwhelmed New York mother who drowned herself and three kids in the Hudson River tried her best to provide her family with a happy home life -- but was consistently let down by their deadbeat father, who failed to provide the love or money they desperately needed, her friends told the New York Post.

Lashanda Armstrong made a dying declaration on Facebook just 30 minutes before the fatal plunge, writing, "I'm sorry everyone forgive me please for what I'm gonna do ... This is it!!!"

Her friends had no doubt that Armstrong was just trying to escape Pierre, who was creating a dead-end life for her and the kids.

Armstrong, 25, kept a steady job and took college classes but was abandoned by Jean Pierre -- the fly-by-night father of the three dead children -- and had nowhere to turn for help.

"He was terrible to her. He was very domineering and controlling over her. He was just so cruel. She just wanted a normal family," said one friend, Christine Santos, 29, who lives nearby.

The dad -- who was arrested in March because of $11,000 in unpaid support -- also threatened to claim custody of the kids.

"That's what pushed her over the edge," said Santos. "He must have broken her spirit and taken away her will to live.
