"U.S. officials have been quoted as saying the move is a response to Pakistan's decision to expel American military trainers and put limits on visas for U.S. personnel.
Analysts say the suspension also is aimed at pressuring Pakistan's army to do more to cooperate with the U.S. to fight militants" VOA
All right. Let's keep our money. I am accustomed to be told in the ME "We have our pride..." Ihis is usually from Arabs. This time it is from Pakistan.
We should have a rule. Anyone who tells us something like this should not be "forced" to take our money, especially now when we are hard up for money at home. The Pakistani Army brass says they will continue the fight against the militants who want a lor of them dead or in exile. Well, good on'em! Best of luck fellahs! Hang onto those nukes. India and indeed the world are watching you. If the Islamists take over your country, there might not be one.
Pakistan is a "vital" ally? How? The operation that killed OBL had nothing to do with the cooperation of Pakistan's army or the ISI. Don't believe anything to the contrary.
Actually, the reaction of the US Government to this "issue" in Pakistan should be normative. The moral - If you take our money we expect you to play the game honestly with us. If you do not, as Pakistan has not then we will walk away from you. pl
