US to continue aid to Pakistan: State Department¸

Notwithstanding strains in ties with Pakistan over the Osama issue, the US today said it will continue to provide financial aid to Islamabad, pointing out that the country was still facing the scourge of terrorism.

Still facing the scourge of terrorism uh? Well why do they have an unspoken peace treaty with most of the Talibans in western Pakistan?

"I think our view is that this (aid) has paid dividends and will continue to pay dividends. This is assistance that is in both Pakistan's long-term interest as well as the United States' national interests and security interests," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters.

"We believe it is a vital cooperation. We have shared goals. We are both affected by scourge of extremism. The vast majority of al-Qaeda and bin Laden's victims were Muslim. Pakistan has suffered grievous losses from al-Qaeda attacks. So we believe that this is a shared struggle," he said.

"We're continuing to work with them. We, again, may not see eye to eye on how to approach every issue, but we're going to continue to work with Pakistan and we believe it's in the best interest of our nation to do so," Toner said.

Yeah Pakistan is SUCH an ally...
Is it worth about $2 billion every year in aid ??

What the.............
Its just the same old same old thing. Many countries are wasting their tax payers money on lost causes.
So the US are helping pakistan buy more guns and weapons to defend against terrorism. The terrorist steal the guns then take them over the border to afganistan then kill allied troops with said gun's.
Well that will stop the violence

Its a crazy, crazy world
