Pakistan Supports Terrorism

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by Marc (United States), Oct 2, 2002 at 16:13

It is time for America to stop its love affair with the totalitarian, islamist country Pakistan. Islamic terrorists cut their teeth in Kashmir only to move on to India and now finally the biggest prize of them all: America. Pakistan at the very least harbors terrorists and therefore tacitly supports Islamic terrorism. They should be regarded in the same way as Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan and other untrustworthy countries. Their leaders listen to the requests of our government only because of our financial aid. This is similar to our paying tribute to Islamic terrorist states in the nineteenth century. (For those who don't know, we burned down Tripoli almost two hundred years ago because our sailors who would not convert to Islam were being enslaved by rogue Islamic city states ingaged in Jihad).

When is America going to wake up? Is there any serious terrorist attack on US citizens (outside of Israel) whose source is not somehow related to Pakistan? Just like the statues of the Buddha destroyed in Afganistan there is not one standing ancient shrine in Pakistan. And those shrines dated back much earlier than the Buddha himself. The Pakistanis protested the shelling of these statues but they had already destroyed all the vestiges of ancient culture left in their country. Let every American know that Pakistan is a very dangerous country. We should not be fighting along side these people in the war against terrorism because they themselves harbor and encourage terrorists.
