Pakistan has said the United States risks losing it as its ally after America's most senior military officer accused the country's intelligence service of helping carry out deadly attacks on Western targets in Afghanistan.
Addressing U.S. senators on Thursday, Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the Haqqani network was a "veritable arm" of the ISI, Pakistan's intelligence service.
The militant group, which is believed to be based in Pakistan, conducted an attack on the U.S. embassy in Kabul last week

Since they have nukes... no.
But we should stop funding Pakistan.

Very good questions. Its easy for us to only see one point of view, I still think something isn't right though. There are a lot of anti-westerners in Pakistan obviously. In the UK we have a good number of young men coming back from 'holiday there' totally radicalised and even though the media does exagerate it that doesn't mean its a dead issue.
I believe that corruption lies everywhere in the world andcorruption doesn't just mean people trying to break rules to get rich, it also applies to people trying to further their ideology in the same way. I think its very plausable that many anti-westerners exist in these organisations and am willing to bet that some will take this further than words.

For the UK, the threat is now well and truly from within, as per the bombings! And the fact that we have so far stopped so many potential attacks. Its only a matter of time before one slips through the loop!
Immigration policies over the last 40 years have seriously compromised the safety of UK folk!
Also allowing large muslim (non integrated) communities/ghettos to evolve to an extent that they are like big rabbit holes where those hell bent on radicalism can hide and foster hatred etc
