Pakistan is criticizing the United States for what it calls an "unauthorized unilateral action" into their country; the raid by Navy SEALS that that killed Osama bin Laden. The Pakistani government is upset that American authorities did not tell them in advance of the raid on bin Laden’s compound in a town that houses some of their own top military officials.
The American government said that the mission was kept a secret because of security issues, which is a nice way of saying “We didn’t trust you bastards not to tip off bin Laden before we got there.”
Who give’s a rat fart what Pakistan thinks? There is no way they didn’t know that the world’s most wanted fugitive was hiding inside the walled compound where he was killed in the raid. I mean, it isn’t like he was hanging out in a cave in the hinterlands, as was long believed. He was right there in the middle of a freaking town! Again, a town known as a center for the country’s military elite. Intelligence reports indicate that he has been there for years.
American officials have said for years that they believed that at least some upper echelon Pakistani government officials knew bin Laden’s whereabouts. And the country’s security forces have long been suspected of being in bed with the very militants we are fighting in Afghanistan.
All of this while the United States has been subsidizing Pakistan with billions of dollars a year in foreign aid. Yep, your tax dollars at work. Tax money we could be spending right here at home to support welfare mothers and greedy oil companies. (Well, we know they’re not going to give any of it back to us, right?)
Sometimes I’m not sure who our real enemies are.
But I’m pretty sure of who our friends aren’t! And Pakistan is not our friend. It’s a pissant little country in a region that is the armpit of the world. We should pull all of our people and dollars out of the place and let them go back to herding camels.
