Martin Dempsey, Obama’s top military adviser, said that Senate has made the right decision by voting to cut aid to Pakistan.
The United State Senate Appropriations Committee voted to cut $33 million in aid to Pakistan, one million for each year of prison sentence to Dr Shakil Afridi who helped CIA kill Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.
Talking to NBC news in an interview, he said that the choices should results in consequences and the Senate action was appropriate.
He showed disappointment over deteriorating relations with Pakistan but also showed willingness to work through noting that Pakistan was strategically important globally as well as in the region.
The Senate Appropriations committee has approved $800 million to Pakistan for year 2013 which is far below from what Obama administration is seeking.

  1. Does Pakistan have a decent Auto Industry OR Software / Tech Industry OR Space Industry OR Banking & Finance sector OR Tourism sector OR Export sector?
    Does Pakistan have a stable democracy OR a robust economy or interest from Foreign Investors? Does Pakistani billionaire even feature in Top 1000 Billionaires List?

    The answer to all the above is No. Then why do Pakistani’s gloat about themselves as being great when their country has achieved nothing in the past 50 years? Every educated & Moderate Pakistani now understands that their country was used as a “Gun 4 Hire” by the US & GCC Countries.

    Now that Pakistan has been left to dry out after being used and abused some sense seems have to prevailed and they are looking to give India an “MFN” status and increase trade & commerce. Stop depending on US & GCC for funds. Don’t kill your own for US Dollars. Please stand up on your own. Think what you want to build rather than destroying what others have built.

    All the best to Pakistan for having all world class industries mentioned above.
