Pakistan to US: Give us more money


www.presstv.ir

"Give us the tools, and we will get the job done," Zardari said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post on Wednesday.

Zardari said he hoped US President Barack Obama has understood that "for Pakistan to defeat the extremists, it must be stable. For democracy to succeed, Pakistan must be economically viable."

He further called on Obama to push Congress into passing a legislation introduced last year that would give an annual USD 1.5 billion aid to Islamabad for social program

Here, Obama's true colors will be tested


NEW YORK: Pakistan has received $1.8 billion as security assistance from the US for the war against terrorism, but the weapons financed under it
are "more useful in countering India" than fighting Al Qaida and Taliban, according to a study.

In addition, Pakistan has got $5.6 billion from Washington over the last five years as reimbursements for fighting Taliban and Al Qaida

The Centre's study was on roughly $10 billion sent to Pakistan by the US since 2002.

In contrast, only about $900 million have been dedicated to health, food aid, democracy promotion and education,

Oh I guess it's already a done deal pretty much.


US to triple non-military aid to Pakistan: Clinton
Washington The incoming US administration of President Barack Obama plans to triple its non-military aid to Pakistan to prop-up the democratically elected government there and also use it as a "condition" on commitment for counter-terrorism missions.

Though Clinton, 61, did not specify the quantum of aid jump to Pakistan, the Chairman of the influential Senate Foreign Relations Committee, John Kerry has indicated that a bill authored by Senator Joseph Biden could be revived. The proposed legislation will hike non-military aid to Pakistan to USD 1.5 billion annually for five years.

U.S. shifting $230 million in counterterrorism aid to upgrading Pakistan's F-16s

Pakistan received $300 million this year intended to fight al Qaeda and Taliban

Skeptics worry that F-16s are not most effective use of funds

U.S., Pakistani officials say upgraded F-16s will fly missions over target areas

Are they insane?

Of course this is not to fight terroism WITHIN THE SAME country where the jets are??????

Of course this will be used against India.

Simple question, would the American Govt. send Fighter Jets if they found a terroist group in some U.S. state?

How does this make any sense?

Well, this just makes so much sense, its pathetic.
Lets allocate funds to a country that clearly doesnt want to take care of themselves, yet will fight with any national that looks cross at them.
Meanwhile, our own country is slowly becoming insolvent and on the verge of bankruptcy and our own US citizens are out of work and on the verge of homeless starvation.

Welcome to the party.

It is very clear to me.

The US is "buying" permission to bomb terrorists.

Upgrading it's f-16 and such, like just incase it has some dog fighting with ...oh, say India.

Hang on, didn't Britain also give them £500 million?

www.timesonline.co.uk...

Why is the (unelected) UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown frittering away vast sums of tax payers money on this country when its government is so backward it still has the death penalty for blasphemy.

I'm sure this money would be far better used either helping fight poverty in Britain or feeding hungry and thirsty people elsewhere on the planet.

The excuse that these huge sums may make islamic fanatics pause for thought (or change their minds) is absolute gibberish.

Yes it certainly doesn't make any sense but UK and US leaders still seem to keep bequeathing astronomical sums to these countries on the flimsiest of excuses.
