  • Because we bomb the shit out of them on a regular basis and don't want them to make us glow in the dark

  • Hey, for once NotPanicking, you are correct. I don't believe you come at it from the same direction, but the meeting point is the same

  • We pay them to help us out with the terrorist and the Taliban.


    It has nothing to do with making us glow in the dark, they know we could completely wipe their country off the face of the map..

  • Because we allowed them to acquire nukes during the Cold War as an offset to India's nuclear program. Just like we are allowing Iran to acquire nukes to keep up with Israel. You can see where this gets us but the alternative is, hands off diplomacy, that would or could be filled by China or Russia, pick your poison. China, for instance, is primed to get out technology from the helo that was destroyed during the Bin Laden op. That is how they reverse-engineer their weaponry and products.
