Military Review

Why is Pakistan becoming an irritant for the USA?

61
Washington decided to reduce the volume of military aid to Pakistan. Recall that a few days ago, US President Donald Trump, accused the authorities of Pakistan of lying, made a statement of the following nature:
In recent years, we have transferred to Pakistan 33 a billion dollars in aid, and in return we received nothing.



What exactly should have been obtained from Pakistan by the United States, Trump specified in the next report.

Further, Trump writes:
They (in Pakistan) provide shelter to the terrorists we are trying to destroy in Afghanistan. And for this we will continue to assist? Enough!


Why is Pakistan becoming an irritant for the USA?


The State Department, meanwhile, noted that the reduction in aid "should put pressure on the Pakistani authorities", which in turn "should take action against extremist groups", including the Taliban terrorist group (* banned in the Russian Federation).

US Secretary of Defense James Mattis, after the administration’s decision to reduce military-financial assistance to Islamabad, said that this decision "will not affect the supply lines for US operations in Afghanistan."

The Pakistan Foreign Ministry said security cooperation with Washington continues. At the same time, it is added that Pakistan is awaiting details from Washington on the decisions taken.

It is known that US military aid to Pakistan amounted to about 2 billion dollars.

        They must poison Iran and surrender everyone in Afghanistan ... But a substantial amount!

    ..Probably, it should have read so that Pakistan does not support those who are supported by the Americans ... And who is the terrorist in Afghanistan, who is not, you won’t understand without a glass. Everything was mixed up in the Oblonsky’s house ...

    Trump is absolutely right.
    If you want money - follow the conditions - do not want --- do not.
    Money means serve, and return is zero.
    The question is absolutely reasonable - if the return is zero, then why give money.

      Money under the guise of help is, if you want, a tribute, a bribe, so that the packs do not help the Taliban, which is the product of Pakistan. There will be no money - help with intelligence, money and weapons will go, China will help with great pleasure. And there will be hemorrhagic Americans. The warriors understand this, but not Trump.

    December 27 we read here in the VO, in the Analytics section, the article "Russia and Pakistan: what are the reasons for the improvement." A wonderful article with full coverage of the issue, but only on one side.
    At the first glance from the other, it becomes clear that the main reason for the improvement of relations is that Pakistan really need money. Apparently, he is losing such a major sponsor as the United States, since Donald Trump accused Islamabad of assisting terrorists and threatened to stop providing economic assistance to Pakistan. He said that the United States "foolishly" transferred more than 15 billions of dollars to Pakistan over the past 33 years without receiving anything in return. Yes, the Americans are fed up with feeding the parasites. Now, Pakistan is developing relations with the Russian Federation. He urgently needs money (big). True, Russia does not have American billions, but the temptation to get a couple more of the three military bases, now in Pakistan, is large enough. Are you fighting for the Syrian brothers? Get ready to feed the Pakistani.
    Apparently, Pakistan is not so much “becoming an irritant for the United States,” as another burden for the Russian Federation.
    Yes, one more thing - the "Palestinian people" suddenly appeared at the beginning of the 60s of the last century, the staff members stop feeding too. And rightly so. Their own brothers-Arabs are no longer on the Darmovschinku contain. No offense, guys, but get ready to feed more and Palestinian brothers. hi

                    In the middle east all arab countries "artificially created", except for Egypt (with a separate topic). There are no "ancient countries". Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, etc., all of them are former wilayas and sanjaks sliced ​​by Britain and France in 20-e / 40-th of the last century from the cake that until 1917 was called the Ottoman Empire. As the late Anwar Saddat correctly noted: "The only Arab country in the Middle East is Egypt. Everything else is tribes with flags.". Learn materiel BV history. When I see a Buryat saying that he is Russian, it does not bother me at all. So the world is arranged - not all Russians have a Slavic appearance. There are many countries based on migrants in the world and this does not hinder, but helps them develop successfully. Do not repeat the usual nonsense for someone - people will laugh. Be healthy. All the best to you. hi

                    Well, thanks for the kind word! True, the great folk Muslim wisdom sounds a little different: "Israel is small. It costs nothing to offend him. Only later, it takes a very long time to cough up blood.". This wisdom, already half of our closest neighbors, have learned by heart and live in clover. The second half is still in the process of learning. We sincerely wish them success in this not easy business.

                    Send, of course, you can. Only an empty case. It is necessary to find there for them in the quantity of commodities. Or will they be exported? lol In short, throw unnecessary fantasies. We have not flooded the topic here, but I already have 4 warnings. I wish you good health! hi

                    Yevgeny Yanichy leave alone, this is an "ungravious Yavrei" lol . He didn’t run away with money to the “promised lands,” as well as what he says - Lavrenty Palych would definitely applaud. good And according to him (and somehow I want to believe) he did not spend his life in "warm offices", but in the open-hearth furnace. Therefore, by the way, sometimes "is lost in the expression of the word" as Chernomyrdin. lol

              Hmm and why are Yavreev considered "smart people"? It’s like I taught geography pretty well -

    They (in Pakistan) provide shelter to the terrorists we are trying to destroy in Afghanistan. And for this we will continue to assist? Enough!

    Rave. Pakistan is punished for rapprochement with China in pressure on India. That is also the "Chess Game". And Trump has a pumpkin on his head, he’s not Lavrov.

    If I’m not mistaken, then about 40 years ago the USA itself created the Taliban bases in Pakistan.
    Go from Pakistan caravans
    And, therefore, there is work for the "tulip"

    Pakistan has completely come under Chinese control.
    They build ports, factories, railways there.
    Supply sophisticated military equipment.
    America had long gone to tie up with Pakistanis
    and bet on India.

    In recent years, we have transferred to Pakistan 33 a billion dollars in aid, and in return we received nothing.

    I think Pakistan will not mind returning ISIS, the Taliban and the Gerych to the states.

    The Russian leadership needs to take a closer look - why are they needed? Only to maintain a conversation or how? Better to be friends with India better.
