Pakistan Tells Afghanistan to Dump America

Updated on April 27, 2011

As if things could not get worse between so called allies, Pakistan has told President Karzai on April 16, that America has let them both down. Pakistan's president urged Karzai to look toward China, Pakistan to help strike a deal with the Taliban. A deal??

I guess it is the second war America will have lost. No big stunner there. Pakistan urged Karzai to forget about any long term association with the US. It seems many nations are starting to position themselves when America is gone in 2014.

Afghanistan does have concerns. Their neighbors are Russia, Pakistan, China, Iran and India within a short distance. Pakistan has fostered the Taliban, as well as supported them in the past (and maybe they still do).

Pakistan clearly indicated that it does not seek any American protection, meanwhile, General Petraeus, has met with Karzai three times since the Pakistan revelations coaxing and trying to convince him that America is his best answer. What is going on?  Years ago, it was the US that put Karzai in as President, provided billions of dollars and now the US is begging him???

Despite the rhetoric about how America is doing well there, experts all agree that after 2014, if American bases are not part of the deal, Afghanistan will fall back into the Taliban's hand. It is no surprise then to find out that Pakistan's ISI continue to support the Taliban even as they partner with the CIA to battle al-Qaeda and others. Pakistan, even with billions of aid from the US, is against us and claim that America has  "imperial designs" and that America should stay out of the peace process with the Taliban.

Pakistan is playing all sides on this one. They take our money, work with us and against us with the same enemy, the Taliban and al-Qaeda. They are paranoid about India and seek to get Afghanistan to act as a buffer. They say that the US is the problem in the region, not the Taliban! They firmly believe that they should be the ones to be angry because America keeps them out of the intelligence loop in Afghanistan.

There is only one way this is going to end and it ain't good!
