Trump Is Right: Pakistan Is No Ally

Pakistani Cartoon

Financial Times reported last week that “the Trump administration is considering dropping Pakistan as an ally as it examines tough measures to quell more than 20 terrorist groups it says are based in the country.” Here again, the President who is daily derided and ridiculed by foreign policy “experts” is right, and they are wrong: Pakistan is no ally, and has not been for years. This is a rupture that is much needed and long overdue.

    That’s interesting. I assume that means the United States will be closing all their Internal Revenue Taxation offices over there. Why, just the other day I had a call from one Andrew Martin of the IRS telling me I owed $1,323.65 back taxes. He didn’t sound like an Andrew Martin, more like a Bilpip Singh…..

      Fascinating. I get calls from officer Williams of Canada Revenue Agency telling me I have A bad problem and need to call him quick. He sure doesn’t sound like an officer Williams either.

        astounding ! and just the other day a psychic called me up to inform me my computer was full of eels or some thing i couldn’t make it out as his accent was just too broad. if indeed my computer is full of eels it would go a long way toward explaining the cats preference in sprawling all over the desk while i try to work. i guess they are just after all those eels.

        Yeah I have had a few like that; actually messages left on the answering machine. In my case he said he was Agent Williams of the CRA, which signaled for me that it is an American scam. The reason is that “agent” is not a title used in Canada for a government official.

      Do you need your air-ducts cleaned too?

      • chayisun

        As a matter of fact I DID get one such call. Amazing. It was some foreign sounding chap who nattered on about the duct cleaning and the advantages of having that done. I asked for further information. While he prattled on I was able to go to the kitchen, make myself a tomato and cheese sandwich, pour myself a nice cold glass of milk.

        When I returned he was just finishing up…..Asked me when he could book an appointment. I said any time, day or year that was convenient for him…..I got dead silence……Then I think he told me to do some obscene thing so I assume the duct cleaning is going to be done????

          Here in Toronto we get 2 or 3 calls a week from them even though our house is all electric. 🙁

    Never mind dropping them as an ally, the Trumpster should drop a few nukes on Pakistan.

  • WalterBannon

    Pakistan is no ally

      Never has been any more than any other Muslim country.

      It’s been a long time since they were. We should have give India a green light to dispose of them.

    They hate us but love our aid money.

  • ntt1

    it would be nice if our idiotic prime minister followed up with cutting Canadas foreign aid to this increasingly hostile muslim failed state,

    Neither is Saudi Arabia but Trump has nothing but praise for the Saudi’s

    Neither is Turkey but Trump said this about Erdogan this afternoon after meeting him in NYC

    Trump said Erdogan “is becoming a friend of mine.” U.S. and Turkey “right now as close as we’ve ever been” thanks to personal relationship.

      Good grief.

  • Dana Garcia

    Trump wants to end foreign aid to Pakistan, which became rather generous under Obama ($3.5 billion in 2011). That would be a nice start.

      They and the rest of the West should also end immigration from there.

      • A Hamilton Guy

        Dump everybody in the un who is muslim or a dictatorship; that would ease the strain on the wallet.

      • Dana Garcia

        Yes, plenty of unfriendlies among that bunch. They should remain in place and fix up the homeland.
