Those “Honorable” Pakistanis: Killing Again

Posted August 3rd, 2010 by Iron Mike

It is hard for me to think of a less reliable and less worthy ally in our fight against Islamic terrorism than Pakistan.  Yesterday was a good example.  To revenge the murder in Karachi. [pop 16 million] of a politician of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement – a political “party” representing many Urdu speakers – his buddies decided to shoot up the town, killing 45 people.  Why wouldn’t they?  This is the way of life and has been for thousands of years.  Did I mention that the “peaceful Islamic state of Pakistan” has nuclear weapons?  

Pakistan came into being when Britian relinquished the “crown jewl” of their once-glorious empire in 1947.  At first it was a two-part country – East Pakistan and West Pakistan – both Muslim.  But impoverished and often monsoon flooded East Pakistan with her 160 million poor broke away in 1971 to become Bangladesh.  West Pakistan – now simply Pakistan – continued it’s bitter hatred and border wars with India, and continued squabbling over who owns Kashmir and Jammu.  Even Red China grabbed a couple of parts that looked unguarded. Bloodshed in  – and along the borders of these providences is a daily occurrence.

In this part of the Third World killing and mutilation are a matter of “honor”.  Grudges go back 1000 years. You can be shot, bombed, beheaded, or mutilated for something your great uncle ~ may ~ have done, before your were born. 

Acid burned by relatives for "honor".


And if you are a girl or a woman, – you live in equal fear.  Fathers, brothers, uncles, and husbands routinely regain their “honor” for imagined offenses by killing, burning, mutilating, or throwing acid on their women.  Ghastly?  Even more so when you realize that even “enlightened” politicians, military officers, and policemen do it – and get totally away with it.  Did I mention that Pakistan has nuclear weapons?

Thus Usama bin Laden finds refuge and welcome in the western providences of Pakistan.  The guy who helped toss the Russians out of Afghanistan, – who attacked our Navy in Yemen, our Air Force in Saudi Arabia, and our financial and military hearts on 9/11 – is a hero bordering on a saint to these people who believe killing “non-believers” is a religious duty. 

The Pakistan Intelligence Service – the ISI – is actively funneling money [our foreign aid $$] and real-time intelligence to UBL, to his al Qaeda remnants, and to the Taliban.  Pakistan is NOT our friend.  Did I mention that these chivalrous gentlemen have nuclear weapons

Did I mention that our Muslim pResident visited Pakistan as a young man?  We still don’t know what passport he used, what name he used, – or why he went.   It would be so “racist” to ask those questions, right?
