Pakistan a "disloyal ally", a US lawmaker has introduced
legislation in the US Congress to freeze all US aid to Islamabad
except funds designated to help secure nuclear weapons.
"By sending aid to Pakistan, we are funding the enemy, endangering
Americans and undermining our efforts in the region," Ted Poe said
while tabling the resolution in the House of Representatives
"We pay them to hate us, now we pay them to bomb us," he said.
"Let's not pay them at all. And that's just the way it is."
"Ever since we found Osama bin Laden living the high life in
Abbottabad, we've had our suspicions about Pakistan," Poe said.
"Turns out they are disloyal, deceptive and a danger to the United
States," he said. "This so-called ally takes billions in US aid,
while at the same time supporting the militants who attack us."
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen,
has revealed that the Pakistani government supported the groups
who were behind a truck bombing attack that wounded more than 70
US and NATO Troops, he noted.
"And the recent attack on the US embassy. This should be the last
rodeo for Pakistan," Poe said.
The passage of the resolution, however, is not assured as only a
few resolutions are finally taken up by the House of
Representatives after approval by the house foreign affairs
committee, to which it has now been referred.
