While Pakistan claims to be a friend to the United States, it is an ally in name only.
The standards they set for others! They want complete obsequious and unconditional. No matter they sanction, hold back CSF and dont care about our regional interest. But when they call for assistance, you must be ready to help no questions asked.

F*ck off USA. You had 20 years. You could improve the country or screw it. You chose to screw Afghanistan. Now go to hell!

Having said this, Pakistan should be on guard. Spending a few million dollars in terrorists will be enough to create unrest in the country. Imran Khan should be careful with his security. And ISI must be get ready to fight the covert war.

IK must be careful with his security. The job could be carried out in the name of TTP, by an insider. After which a deep cleansing of such remnants of these elements would be carried out.

These two look like pedophiles.

Hilarious they talk of cold shoulders when their secretary of state was denied a call with Imran, and CIA Director William Burns sat around waiting for a meeting before a lower ranked official said go home you are wasting your time.

They also seem to be stuck in a void when Bush left and Obama came. That was some years ago fellas, time to move on and smell the new reality. But it must be hard smelling reality whilst writing such stinking $hit.
The Americans have a strange fantasy. They believe that they can coerce an enemy by vilifying it through media. With Pakistan they have tried this method extensively. Even long before Pakistan became a nuclear power Western nations had a very strong objection to Pakistan and they have used the media to propagate their hate and viciousness. American Hollywood producers who are affiliated to anti-Pakistan elements in the US are hired to vilify Pakistan.

After a massive campaign of vilification and hatred against Pakistan the Americans realise that whenever they require Pakistan it is difficult to look the them into the eyes. How can you vilify a nation of 200+ million and request favors? That is American hypocrisy at its height. Shameless and hypocritical. They do it nonetheless.

Pakistan is not just Pakistan now. It's Russia and China together.
Want ww3?
Exactly. These fvckers know it. They are too afraid to admit or even mention this. The Western powers and Indians have a nightmare. They call it CRIP.

LOL they are putting words in our mouths. Who on our side even says that we are allies? We have never ever claimed to be allies of the US or the West.

Pakistan needs to be VERY careful. The Americans, Western powers and India will use shady groups like PTM and BLA to further their agenda. The Americans along with India have never made it a secret to arm and finance shady terror groups against Pakistan. CIA funded Pashtun channels air anti-Pakistan propaganda. The Americans are trying their best to infiltrate the Pakistani society and fan ethnic and religious tensions. They cannot attack Pakistan directly. They will use henchmen to attack Pakistan. This is where the Pak armed forces need to be on high alert and ruthless. Any lethargic approach will cost Pakistan severely. The Americans along with India are CPEC's enemy number one.

This temporary frustration of Americans is understandable, but soon they'll realise what their options are. Either they can have part-cooperating Pakistan or a non-cooperating Pakistan. If they have an interest in Afghanistan, Pakistan is their only opportunity to whatever degree it is available.

Is that why the actual title of the quoted source has been arbitrarily modified to the above in violation of PDF rules?

Correct title:
As Biden pulls out of Afghanistan, what’s his plan for Pakistan? It harbors terrorists, too | Opinion

Edited Title:
LOL Laurel and Hardy want action against Pakistan

==============================

No wonder PDF Alexa rankings have sunk below 73K, but it must only be a slight fluctuation, as you said.

===============================




On topic, the article is only a comment, and nothing editorial or official, so it must be taken as such and nothing more.

Oh well I didn't bother to read the proper title, because it doesn't change the nature of what they wrote i.e. it's utter $hit, although it might be informative for you.
As for the web ranking, yes it goes up and down. Why do you always mention this? The bulk of our viewership couldn't give a hoot what these two say about what is soon becoming a forgetful war.

As Biden pulls out of Afghanistan, what’s his plan for Pakistan? It harbors terrorists, too | Opinion

BY ROBERT WEINER AND BEN LASKY JUNE 17, 2021 05:20 PM

According to the Defense Department’s Office of Inspector General, the Taliban has increased its violence against Afghan citizens since the beginning of the year. Peace talks with the Afghan government have led to a U.S. vow to pull troops from the country by Sept. 11. While Afghanistan gets most of the attention in the region, we, at least, are proposing a “plan” to neutralize anti-West terror development there. We’ll support intelligence, counter narcotics aid and freezing funds and assets going to terrorism. It may be idealistic, but at least it’s an attempt to get us out while stabilizing the region.

But the administration has no such plan for Afghanistan’s neighbor, Pakistan. Even though it hosted Osama bin Laden, a WorldPublicOpinion.org poll conducted 10 years after the 9/11 attacks found that 72 percent of Pakistani citizens said they didn’t know who was responsible for the attacks.

Like Afghanistan, Pakistan is a world-leading narcotics supplier, where terrorists get most of their money as drug cartels. Al Qaida set up headquarters in Pakistan’s tribal areas after U.S. forces arrived in 2001. In a May 6 appearance on “Morning Joe,” former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates argued that the United States has ignored Pakistan while overemphasizing Afghanistan.


“By January 2002, you had an Afghan government that was recognized internationally. You had all the parties in Afghanistan participating, except for the Taliban, who were hiding in Pakistan,” Gates said. In 2009, former Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari admitted during a meeting with former civil servants that Pakistan had trained terrorists to further its foreign-policy goals. “Let us be truthful to ourselves and make a candid admission of the realities. The terrorists of today were the heroes of yesteryears until 9/11 occurred, and they began to haunt us as well. They were deliberately created and nurtured as a policy to achieve some short-term tactical objectives,” Ali Zardari said.

SEAL Team Six finally killed bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan in 2011. Abbottabad is not some small Pakistani village hidden in the mountains just across the Afghan border. Its population is more than 200,000. Its military academy — its West Point — is less than two miles from bin Laden’s headquarters and hiding place. Is anyone really supposed to believe the Pakistani government didn’t know he was there, allowing his protection?

As we approach the 20-year anniversary of 9/11, there hasn’t been a major al Qaida terrorist attack in the United States since then. While al Qaida leadership has changed, its goal hasn’t. Drug money is the main source of funding for terror groups. According to the State Department’s 2021 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report, Afghanistan is the main opium supplier in the world. Pakistan produces one-third as much, but is a transshipment point for chemicals and the opium used to make heroin.

The U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Pakistan website now states that, “Since 2009, the U.S. government has committed over $5 billion in civilian assistance to Pakistan and over $1 billion in emergency humanitarian response. …This commitment reflects our belief that if Pakistan is secure and peaceful and prosperous, that’s not only good for Pakistan, it’s good for the region and it’s good for the world.”

Not exactly. India and Pakistan, both nuclear powers, have hated each other for decades with jealousy over the territory of Kashmir and a desire for world recognition at the expense of the other.

While most of Donald Trump’s presidency was a disaster, his administration was right to cut off $1.3 billion in security assistance funding to Pakistan in 2018. However, like many events that took place under Trump, the aid was restored after his personal relationship with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan improved.

The Biden administration certainly hasn’t been chummy with Pakistan so far. Biden held a climate-change summit with leaders in the region in April. Indian and Bengali leaders were invited. Pakistani leaders were snubbed. This doesn’t seem to be an accident, either, as Climate Czar John Kerry also recently visited countries in the region. Pakistan wasn’t one of them.

While the cold shoulder is warranted, there should be no more free lunch. Funding should be contingent on an end to safe harbor for terrorists and an end to a worldwide drug distribution to fund those terrorists.

While Pakistan claims to be a friend to the United States, it is an ally in name only.

its naive to assume that the USA cant reach out and touch Pakistan. Pakistan should be more pragmatic.
You do something to Pakistan by all means. Try at least.

Don't be so emotional. These are common American thoughts regarding Pakistan. We must know who we are dealing with.

That's the right mindset to have. I like that. The feeling is mutual I'm seeing. Both sides feel betrayed, but one side has the bigger stick.

Just remember one thing very clearly. This mistrust isn't going anywhere. It is easy to destroy a relationship. Getting it back on rails is always difficult. Especially when it has been as treacherous and ugly as ours.

As long as the US continues to prop up India in Afghanistan there cannot be any trust nor meaningful relationship.
