After all of the tsk-tsking, harrumphing, lecturing, speechifying, blow-harding, blustering, lawyering and political posturing over the indisputable fact that Osama bin Laden lived and hid for years in a rather large Pakistan city is finished, nothing will change in the United States’ relationship with Islamabad.
Oh, yes, it’s just shameful and outrageous (blah blah blah) that bin Laden could pretty much hide out in the open (blah blah blah) within a city full of retired military officers, and the American news headlines blare at us that Pakistan has a lot of questions to answer (blah blah blah).
Give me a break.
Don’t put your wallets away, yet, America. You’re going to keep paying for this. Congress will see to it.The Paki government is telling us that heads will roll after the official bin Laden investigation is done. Rumblings have been heard from U.S. Congressmen (read that: all of the fat-cat fabulously wealthy lawyers who want to get re-elected and eat some more Wagyu beef at the White House) about cutting off our billions of taxpayer dollars to the Islamic state that just can’t seem to get it together against al Qaida.
Don’t be fooled for a minute, or even a second, John and Jane Q. Public. Pakistan is Islam. Al Qaida is Islam. Hezbollah is Islam. Saudi Arabia is Islam. Hamas is Islam. Islam equals Islam. Do the math, folks.
Here’s a link to a Fox (al-Arabia) News story about all of the melo-drama:
After you’ve worked your way through all of the empty rhetoric and tough-talk, be sure not to quit before you read what Senators Richard Lugar and John Kerry said about the situation. And remember, these men are from supposed opposite sides of the political aisle. But we pay for their all of their $tuff, right?
Lugar says that we should just keep paying our billion$ in foreign aid to Islamabad. Kerry thinks this is a good opportunity to push the “re-$et” button and fix all of the problems with the (two-faced) Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Bring our troops home. I say we cut every last Islamic state on the global map loose and leave them to their own devices. They don’t want us anyway, unless we convert to Islam and put our women into burkhas. They want our ca$h. Maybe that’ll chop a few buck$ from my income tax bill. I need the grocery money. And my nephew can come home on leave for Christmas.
