They're drones!

“U.S. military trainers will be invited back into Pakistan "as early as April or May," but the nation has ruled out allowing CIA drones back into the country, Fox News has learned. […] But a gradual erosion of trust between Islamabad and Washington, brought about violence that Pakistan blames on the U.S. and by intransigence by the Pakistani security apparatus to wipe out key militants, has brought the relationship to a bitter impasse. Congress has stalled much of the $2 billion Pakistan receives annually from the U.S. in civil and military aid, and Pakistan will struggle without its full resumption.”
— Dominic Di-Natale, January 20, 2012 (

The drone campaign is one of our most successful against what used to be called the Global War on Terror (GWOT). This is undoubtedly why our so-called "ally" in the GWOT doesn't like it. You see, boys and girls, those wily Pakistanis only pretend to be our allies so they can get a comfortable spot at the U.S. foreign-aid trough.

To add insult to injury (of our national intelligence) Pakistan also makes little to no effort to disguise their motivation for "cooperating" with us. And, most likely, our Commentator-in-Chief doesn't care what Pakistan or anyone else thinks about such matters of national pride. All Obama cares about is that the non-thinking voters re-elect him for another term.

What our State Department, if you'll pardon the expression, should tell Pakistan is, "Shove your invitations; they're drones. Get your hand-outs where we get ours — China."

What are the odds?
