Our “Ally” Pakistan — You Can’t Lose What You Don’t Have

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Hina Rabbani Khar, has warned the Obama Administration that “You will lose an ally,” if it continues accusing the Pakistanis of supporting the Haqqani terrorist group.  Finally, finally, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Admiral Mullen, said last week that the Haqqani network is a “veritable arm” of Pakistan’s intelligence service, the ISI.

How can we lose an ally we don’t have?  Pakistan is our enemy.  No one says it outright, but really we are at war with Pakistan and have been for a long time.  We, of course, want to wipe out the terrorists, they believe they need them to protect themselves from India.

Pakistan is not just passively harboring terrorists, it is actively helping them kill our soldiers in Afghanistan.

We have to stop waiting around for the Pakistanis to go after the Haqqanis.  Giving them more aid won’t do it.  Taking away their aid won’t do it.  Ain’t gonna happen.  We have to go after the Haqqanis ourselves with drones and special forces, just as we had to get Osama bin Laden ourselves because the Pakistanis would have protected him till he died of natural causes.

What’s the difference between North Korea and Pakistan?  No American soldiers will die today because of North Korea, and we haven’t given North Korea $20 billion in aid.

    But this is an enemy (frenemy?) in a war we don’t want to have, though some seem to be pushing for it. See what Juan has to say today:
