    Reason: Pakistan supporting terrorist groups.

    I always wondered why the US was soo dam soft on Pakistan, like giving them billions in aid while they are killing US and allied soldiers and support the very entities that carried out 9-11. All this bellicosity against Iran, is misdirected, it should be against Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

    Will Saudi step up and buy $300 Million of our military goods and then donate them to Pakistan?

    Is $300 million the totality of annual aid or just a portion?

    Also, will Democrats suddenly be extremely pro Pakistan?

    Iran is a legit enemy to American foreign policy if libya was lol then Iran for sureis with its funding of hezbollah and shiite and hamas and drug rings via hezbollah. I swear their plan is to use sunni numbers and money to deal with Iran then go after pakistan and saudi and squeeze turkey. Even if US allies with Iran it will still be an adversary. US wont be happy with Iran until it is lile azerbaijan or kazakhstan secular iron fisted government with largely non religious or nominally muslim population. Honestly Russia would prefer that to.

    That Awan scandal might break soon. The Dems were selling info through the brothers to Paki.

    About 98% of muslim Pakistanis want to eradicate us, so I'm good with this. Very good, in fact. America first.

    Good, but what concerns me about Pakistan is their nuclear security.
    I hope this money wasn't part of that.

    Trump should use the $500 million he's cut off from Palestine and Pakistan and put it all into schools. They need it and as a bonus it would be something even Democrats couldn't bitch about.

    Very much liking this pattern of pulling foreign aid. Hopefully it continues to include even Israel and Saudi Arabia. All of that money should be used at home here in America with the rare exception for humanitarian work after a disaster

    About fucking time!!! Pakistan is a treacherous snake that wouldn't think twice about biting the hand - our hand - that feeds them.

    U.S. balks at IMF bailout for Pakistan to repay Chinese debt

    A Pakistani navy member stands guard while a loaded Chinese ship prepares to depart Gwadar Port. A study says the massive Chinese infrastructure program called One Belt One Road that Beijing says is aimed at promoting global trade and economic growth is actually intended to expand the country's political influence and military presence.

    Pull our troops out of the ME. We have not really help anything improve over there from what I have seen. I don't care as much about money as I do about our people being over there.
