ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistan's government has told the United States to halve the number of military trainers it has stationed in the country, the latest sign of spiraling distrust between the two allies since the killing of Osama bin Laden.

One official says that most of the trainers are unneccesary and cause more problems than good. Another says this,

Another Pakistani security official said the decision was made because of concerns over the Americans' security and because "resentment all around was very high."

The Pakistani Taliban, and its allies al Qaeda, have stepped up their attacks since bin Laden's killing, targeting police and military installations, including a brazen assault this week on a key naval air base in Karachi.

Im not really sure what to make of this. The Pakistani's want to cut half of our trainers, but at the same time, attacks have increased recently. Maybe they were causing more problems than good, or maybe Pakistans military hate of the US is at an all time high?

I would bet on it being the latter. Since we have a constant bombbardment of predator drones attacking their country.

They are just jealous that they don't have them... Pakistan is a big mistake!

Pakistani's having military hardware and nukes is equivalent to giving Nukes to Neanderthal man.

So they are getting rid of US presence in their country and this is not ringing MAJOR alarm bells?
Ok, so it truly has started.

Hey Boondock, where you at? What's your take?

They're finally getting their act together, not like dumb americans who let tsa molest their kids, rape their women, and crotch grab their men; bankers socializing losses, privatizing profits; politicians legalizing tyranny. and then you get most americans being sheeple too dumb to even know what's going on while their country is being gutted. at least the pakistanis stand up for themselves and have hopefully learned a lesson that you can't appease bullies. Bullies need a black eye, but americans think you can bj a bully and he'll leave you
