    Pakistan wants to reduce the US Military presence in thier country because of the raid on OBL.

    Pakistan army wants cut in US military personnel - Yahoo! News

    Is it time to cut their aid? How soon until Pakistan gives nuclear technology (again) to another of our foes, see: Pakistan, The World's Fifth Largest Nuclear Power : NPR

    World politics is a very complicated matter, too bad our leaders in both parties cannot work together in the best interest of our nation. The divisive nature of our internal politics maybe as great a danger as AQ or terrorists in general.

    We need to cut their aid for sure but the thing is as long as we have US Troops on the ground in Afghanistan we are going to need the Pakistanis help, this is a relationship of necessity not love, we need to get out of Afghanistan before we can start cutting $$$$ to the Pakistanis.

    The problem with cutting aid and presence with Pakistan is that doing so creates incredible instability in nuclear state.

    All this destabalizing in the Middle East at the same time is incredible dangerous. especially when Nukes are involved.

    Personally, I don't want to be funding them with any money, but I don't have any intelligence reports that indicate what would happen if we cut funding completely. I don't want us doing something rash with a nuclear power.
