    Gee,i wonder why? Could it be that we're killing their people on a daily basis? Just a wild guess.


    President Obama promised to restore the international image of the United States, but the recent NATO airstrike that killed Pakistani soldiers comes as a historic setback, at least in Pakistan, to judge from remarks made by Army Gen. Martin. E. Dempsey to British media today.

    Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the average Pakistani’s respect for the United States is lower than ever. “[The average Pakistani who] doesn’t know the United States, doesn’t read about the United States or just watches something on television about the United States, at that level, [the relations] are probably the worst they’ve ever been,” he explained, according to the American Forces Press Service.

    He added that the relationship between the U.S. government and Pakistan’s government is “on about as rocky a road as I’ve seen.”

    The general expressed limited optimism for rebuilding that relationship. “I think if we understand the seriousness with which this event is being viewed in Pakistan, and they understand we are taking it seriously, then I think we will have at least the beginnings of a opportunity to find our way through it,” he suggested.

    Obama must have gotten mugged when he was a student traveling in Pok-ee-staan, I don't know what else could motivate his trying to get us into a war with them

    Frankly....I don't care

    Pakistan hid Bin Laden for five years, the majority of Al Qaida and Taliban leadership are in Pakistan. They have been given ample opportunity to clean house. If they want to bitch about outsiders coming in and cleaning out the scum in their midst.........let them

    If they are that unhappy, let them give back the billions in US aid

    Nice Diplomacy. That'll win em over for sure. We're killing their people on daily basis. They have every right to be angry. But i do agree,we should eliminate aid to them. And then bring all of our troops home from the region. We already won the Longest War. It's over.

    Is diplomacy going to root out embedded terrorist cells that are supported by the Pakistan government? I don't think so. That is what those billions of dollars in US aid was supposed to do. Allow the US to fund the Pakistan military in cleaning out the terrorist cells.

    I supported that policy up until I saw Osama bin Laden living happily and unmolested in a major city in Pakistan

    So War with Pakistan? No thanks. We've had enough War. You were on the right track when you suggested eliminating their aid. I mean how long are they supposed to accept us killing their people on a daily basis? So lets just eliminate the aid and get the Hell out of there. We already won over there. Nothing more to be gained.

    Even Pakistan is not stupid enough to engage in war with the US. The terrorists in their midst are a direct threat to US and worldwide security. We will continue with drone strikes and special forces attacks until we are satisfied that threat is eliminated

    If Pakistan does not like it, I am not concerned

    "We fight the terrorists and we fight all of those who give them aid. America has a message for the nations of the world: If you harbor terrorists, you are terrorists. If you train or arm a terrorist, you are a terrorist. If you feed a terrorist or fund a terrorist, you're a terrorist, and you will be held accountable by the United States and our friends." George W Bush

    I agreed with that statement by GWB then and I still do today.

    One of Bush's finest speeches. Too bad he did not live up to it
