    Sharia Law is a scary thing to be creeping its head here in the states....watching the news this morning and watching the violence in Pakistan makes me wonder WHY we give the Karzaid govt another dime...I would cut funding off within the hour...

    But the POTUS is so busy on his re election tour while all around him is crumbling..the fuse has been lit, the powder keg is ready to explode, its time to wake up people

    I am sure we paid at least ten times the going rate for TV ads in that rat hole country!

    In 2002, Bush 43 upped the contribution to 18 Billion. The agency that monitors the money claims that up to 70% of it does not end up where intended. I would invite all of you to watch Rand Paul's comments to the Senate on this, from this week since he is the only one that has addressed it and many Repubs have critizied him for saying so. See Lindsay Graham's comments.

    Our Foreign Policy has been dysfunctional for at least the last 50 years and won't change in the next four as both Dem and Repub Congressmen overwhelmingly support it. Some of that money is in the form of rent for our airbases. Rent we are paying to protect them though Pakistanis hate the USA.

    Yup, Ken, seems crazy to me.

    I think the P'stani govt is still ticked off about the Bin Laden caper ... that they were not informed of the incursion. It was after that, (I think I have the timeline right) that they started asking much more bucks for each truck that crossed P'stan to get supplies to A'stan. I think the price was raised from $5000 to $15,000/truck-vehicle. (I think it was negotiated down from the highest price they asked for. I'm guessing that these "fees" are buried in the military budget so it seems likely that they are in addition to their foreign aid. Wonder how much $ we really give to P'stan?

    There is one benefit to sharia. I wouldn't mind seeing Hillary draped in black.

    Let's see how she likes it.

    Don't forget that the Pakistani government has imprisoned for life the doctor that tipped us off to the whereabouts of OBL.
