Hillary Clinton Took Off The Gloves ~ Blunt Talk For Pakistan

By

Hillary Clinton took off the gloves during her visit to Pakistan. 

She delivered a no-holds-barred message to the government.

Hillary got blunt and unusually frank. Good for her!  Good for us!

 

Hillary Clinton

There has been much corruption within the country and misuse of American war material dollars.  While Pakistan talks like an ally, have they acted like an ally? Hillary stated that Pakistan must step up efforts to apprehend Al Qaida terrorists.  Opportunities have been squandered to kill or capture Al Qaida leaders including Osama Bin Laden.

Glad to see we are taking a firmer stand and not accepting the status quo. Hopefully we will expect more for our tax dollars than just lip service. 

Pakistan is capable of carrying out military action without our help. We have already supplied them with the technology and the equipment.



"I find it hard to believe that nobody in your government knows where they are and couldn't get them if they really wanted to," she told a group of Pakistani journalists in Lahore as she wrapped up her three-day visit to Pakistan. "Maybe that's the case. Maybe they're not gettable. I don't know."


Clinton reaffirmed America's pledge to provide $7.5 billion in non-military aid to the troubled nation over the next five years. But she made clear that it will not be a handout.

Clinton said the U.S. wants to partner with Pakistan on more than just the military front, but she made clear that the government in Islamabad will have to be America's partner in tracking down and capturing the terrorists who masterminded the September 11 attacks, among so many others throughout the world.

Clinton defended the bluntness of her remarks in an interview Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America, saying, "Trust is a two-way street. There is trust deficit."

Hi Bonnie - Good for Hillary, but I wish she wouldn't wear that head gear, we must take a stand against forcing women to obey Shia Laws especially when American Secretary Of State is a woman!

I don't know Bonnie, I think the last thing you do in a situation like this is to make these comments public.  I don't care if she grabs the president of Pakistan by the throat and threatens to make he a she but only in private.

Larry,  I'm rather tired of us looking like a door mat.  Pakistan has subverted billions of our dollars to fortify themselves against India.  Not use it against terrorists which was the condition under which it was given.

I don't think Pakistan is going to change or be any more helpful than what they have been. They are only interested in more of our dollars. We get very little for our investment.

Nick,  I noticed that at times woman do not wear head cover.  I think Hillary laid a wreath at a Mosque.  That photo may have been snapped at that time.  When she was meeting officials or addressing a group her head was uncovered. Not sure of the significance.

Gregg,  I was not aware that Pakistan hated us.  We don't have any troops to bring home from Pakistan.  As I understand it the current issue with Pakistan is the 7.5 billion we promised them for infrastructure improvements.

Do you think we should stop all diplomatic efforts with the entire middle east?

Gregg,  70% of Pakistan does not approve of our involvement but they still want our money.  I do know we are hated by the radicals in the middle east.

How much oil does Afghanistan have?  Are we there because of oil?  How much oil do we get from Pakistan? Why do you believe we are fostering diplomatic relations with Pakistan?

Since hundreds of thousands of brain washed Arabs want to kill us, how would you suggest we proceed to protect our Country?. Should we ignore them and allow the enemy to become more emboldened?

Obviously more attacks will be spawned in Afghanistan and Pakistan against our soil, unless moderate leaders who are not brainwashed take control of the terrorists.  Hating us is one thing.  That's fine.  Hate us on your soil not ours.

Are you saying that all Muslims want to kill Americans?

What does Israel have to do with Afghanistan and Pakistan?  What financial interests do they have?

Israel is a very small country so how do you perceive they intend to achieve world domination?

I'm interested to know what your thoughts are.  If I do not know much about the middle east - enlighten me and everyone else who  may not be informed.

Isn't education what we are all seeking?

Kevin, We have poured billions into this country.  They have ferreted out some camps and arrested terrorists but have not been committed to getting Bin Laden.

Either the entire population of the middle east wants to support radicals who want to kill everyone who is not a Muslim, or the silent majority wish to coexist peaceably with the rest of the world.  Every middle eastern country is being victimized by terrorist.

The bomb that killed 100  people in Pakistan when Hillary was there did not kill Americans. These radicals do not care who they kill as long as they get control.  Peace loving citizens are as much their victims as we are.
