Why America Hates Pakistan (yet, has to like it)

Updated on June 10, 2012

Pick your poison. If Pakistan were a human being, it would be a scumbag or ripoff artist. Instead of helping remove the Taliban from their own country, they protect them by inaction, allowing them to thrive in the remote regions. They take advantage of their situation for purely financial gain. They use the pretext of war to extort money from those trying to help it because in their view America is rich, why not take advantage of them to make money to line our pockets. Their government is comprised of greedy thugs.

They want apologies ad nauseum for accidental killings from American and Pakistani errors. They want thousands of dollars per container that are trucked into or from Afghanistan using the road from Karachi. The price has gone from $200 a container to over $3000. Bandits and thugs. They whine about US drones taking action without consultation, well, what do you expect when your partner is so crooked and lame to take action themselves? It is a war, or they view differently, as in extortion and robbery of a rich ally.

Let's not forget Americans had given them billions in aid. The key word is "given". It is a gift or bribe, if you will, to buy Pakistani cooperation. What does the government do? They want more via extortion by closing the supply road. Before the road closed, 5000 trucks per month used the road. Even at $200 a truck, that is a nice profit when the road is just dirt with holes. The US has even offered to pave the road of 1000 miles to get them to reduce the extorted fee being asked (along with yet another stupid apology!). So far, they are playing the waiting game.

Pakistan officials are low life criminals. They are content to wait until the US begins withdrawing from Afghanistan and the need for the road is paramount in two-four months. They feel they have the US behind the "eight ball" because the only other road is through former Russian republics that President Putin has influence over (another extortionist).

What makes it worse is that both the US and Pakistan have presidential elections this fall and neither wants to appear weak or giving in because it could cost them the election. This is more true in Pakistan, which as bad as it is now, it would really be bad for the US. The Pakistanis feel the northern route is more costly and plan just to wait the Americans out until need is worth the price.

With friends like Pakistan, American taxpayers are getting reamed.

      Pakistan is hardly an ally. The talks over the road reopening failed, this time, the US told Pakistan to shove it after they whined about yet, insisting on another apology.

      If there was a list of the country's worst allies. Pakistan would have to be #1.

      Unfortunately Pakistan-USA issue is going to religion and it's fanatics.We Indians are more worried over the Af-Pak situation. After the WWII USA supported military dictators across the globe, cold war period and strategy,India suffered the most.

      If Pakistan capitalizing on USA's weakness,then that is their strategy to gain.

      According to hadith, Muhammad is said to have prophesied that the Masih ad-Dajjal would be the last of a series of thirty Dajjal or "deceivers" (false prophets).[

      I tend to agree with all of you. But I think the final armageddon is sooner than 2023, it will be much sooner because of the iran nuclear issue. What is dajjal ?

      Haffaz 5 years ago

      Prophet Mohammed PBUH informed us of the release of dajjal into the world during his lifetime.

      During his lifetime.

      One day like a year. One day like a month. One day like a week. And the rest of his days like your days.

      But when dajjal was in a day like a year Britain was his headquarters. And when dajjal moved to a day which is like a month the united states of America became his headquarters and finally when dajjal is going to be in a day which is like a week he comes back home, to the holy land. He comes back home to the holy land.

      According to Islam, one heavenly year is like a 1000 human years, and as such we can understand that the Dajjal ruled from Britain for 1000 years.

      By no coincidence the British monarchy dates back to the year 900

      In 1917 America officially enters the World War, and this is the step that establishes it as the new global Super Power.

      The dajjal rules from there in a "day like a month".

      So if a year equals a 1000 years.

      A month would be 1000/12 which equals 83 years.

      1917 + 83 =the year 2000.

      Then the dajjal will rule from Israel for a "day like a week"

      Following the same formula, "a day like a week", should be 83 years divided by 4. Which equals almost 21 years. Which brings us to the years 2020-2023 (depending if they were lunar or solar years) By then, the illuminati is expected to move and secure the rule of the world of Israel.

      Welcome to the final stages of the dajjal's plan. What is at stake is more then one small country, it is a big idea.a new world order.

      11, september 2001, all independent research proves 9-11 was an inside job!

      In 2002 In 2002 Afghanistan gets invaded. In 2003 Iraq gets invaded. In 2006 Lebanon gets invaded. In the years following Sept. 11th, the United States establishes bases in over 10 countries across the Middle East. Securing the rulership and safety of Israel. As the final capital of the New World Order. Just like Prophet Mohammed (pbuhf) revealed 1400 years ago.

      Do you now understand what all the problems in the Middle East and the world are based on? I guarantee you that every single deal or war coming up, will be for the protection establishment, or security of The State Of Israel. Where the opposition will always be fought. The dajjal will materialize and take to his throne in Israel.

      And from then onwards, continues the rest of his days like our earthly days.

      What is assured in the Quran and in the :Hadeeths of Prophet Mohammed (pbuhf) is the following... Victory will definitely be for those who will follow Imam al Mahdi, and join the true messiah Jesus (pbuh).

      But sadly, the majority of the world will follow the false messiah, believeing him to be the true one. Because they were not true believers, and did not study the signs.

      The days of supportive weak and ineffective governments is going to cost the USA big time. Unless Americans are prepared to become the global police force, there is every chance that their foreign policy initiatives will be hampered by some of their less effective partners. Pakistan falls right into that category. I am of the view that America does not have to like it especially if they can get round to engaging effectively with Iran.

      I think the problem here is that we have a credibility gap. We have propped up dictators in the past, and then turned against them when we no longer needed them. No leader in his right mind would alienate his own people to support us, at least not so openly. Pakistanis are split about our presence there, and any leader who shows unconditional support risks civil war. A credible leader might take that chance for the greater good of cleaning up the hornets’ nest in his own backyard. But as I said, our history is causing them to pause. I’m sure they are cooperating more with us behind the scenes, otherwise we wouldn’t be hearing about our drone strikes anymore. But they know we are in a very difficult position, so they are extorting us.
