Which Pakistan asked the US to do... I was skeptical because last time the US told Pakistan to suck it.
Pakistan to US : get the hell out of our country. US : No.

Now this time they are doing it... maybe because of Chinese threats...
U.S. Begins Pulling Drones From Pakistan Air Base

Following a NATO strike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers last month and dropped U.S.-Pakistani relations to a new low, U.S. personnel have started leaving Shamsi air base in Pakistan, a senior Pakistan Army official confirmed to Fox News on Sunday.

According to the official, U.S. cargo planes arrived at Shamsi air base to take equipment and other gear used by U.S. personnel out of the country. The move comes after Pakistan told the U.S. last month to leave within 15 days following a drone strike that U.S. and Afghan officials say was ordered to protect troops being fired upon at the Afghan-Pakistan border.

That and Pakistan saying they permanently closed the supply route to Afghanistan means the Pakistan-US relation is pretty much over.

Which everybody will be happy about.

Time to get out of Afghanistan NOW.

I am sure this is just a precursor to another conflict with another ME nation.

It's my opinion that the US will not pack-up and leave without having some war rhetoric to follow.

Pretty soon we'll learn about how there's an evil dictator harboring evil weapons and spreading evil religion in Pakistan.

Then we will bomb for peace.

Pakistan said indefinitely, do you have a link to a news source where they state permanently?

Pakistan intelligence service trains Al Queda. It's no surprise that we should be leaving. When in fact they are the enemy with two faces.

Should we talk about the US Intelligence services that train Al Queda, and the ""Terrorist"" that the US eliminated, that were funded and trained by the US?,

Osama Etc,

It takes a certain type of individual to conduct a war. Tossing drones, playing air traffic control, giving lip service to some countries while ignoring others; does not make a war leader.

It shows a shallow depth of character and a refusal to take the long view.

Sure let's get out of Pakistan. Let's get out of Afghanistan. But save the tough talk, Obama.

Walk softly and carry a big speech is not going to look good on your resume.

Much like water being pulled back to the sea before a tsunami hits...

Pakistan has it coming. Just a matter of time.

Pakistan Shuts Down NATO Resupply Routes “Permanently”

On 27 November Interior Minister Rehman Malik, addressing journalists at the Ministry of the Interior’s National Crisis Management Cell, after strongly condemning the NATO attack on Pakistani forces, stated that the resupply routes for NATO via Pakistan have been stopped “permanently,”


And Pakistan has it coming because it was set up like that in the 70s by the CIA to fight the Russians. Thing is, when the Russians left Afghanistan, the whole religious extremist creating hell hole that had become Pakistan was never dismantled.
