Threat From Pakistan Increases, Fear Of Jihad Escalates

September 29, 2011 by  

Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday to detail the current situation within the country.The strained relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has not improved in recent weeks, as influential religious leaders in the Asian nation have threatened a jihad if Americans attack their country, Fox News reported.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar addressed the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday to detail the current situation within the country. While she advocated cooperation, security analysts from the U.S. noted that the religious leaders wanted the nation to break ties with America.

“This must not be discounted,” an analyst told Fox News. “This is 50 very influential Imams and religious leaders who want a holy war against the U.S. …and they call for scholars, religious leaders to start urging the military rank-and-file to participate or prepare for jihad or holy war against the U.S. Use of Trojan horses or insiders like we have seen with the CIA will likely increase. ”

Reuters reported that part of the reason that the relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has become strained is mutual suspicion.

The news source noted that the Pakistanis have selectively cooperated with America, as they take billions of dollars in aid to fight terrorism, despite producing limited results.

    WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO SUPPPORT A PEOPLE THAT OBVIOUSLY HATE US AND ALL WESTERNERS?
    WE NEED TO GET OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST ENTIRELY AND ALLOW THE MORONS TO BURN EACH OTHER.
    WE FURTHER NEED TO STOP ALL IMIGRATION FROM THAT AREA AS THEY HAVE SHOWN THEY CANNOT BE TRUSTED.
    THAT WOULD ALSO END A LARGE PART OF THE FEDERAL BUDGET AND FREE UP MUCH OF THE MILITARY TO SHUT OFF OUR BORDERS WITH MEXICO AND SEND THEM A MESSAGE.

    • deb

      What you say is true. However, if we were to do that, it would mean that the anti-energy government would have to reverse its stance and allow domestic production of both oil and natural gas so that we could become energy independent. Somehow I just don’t see that happening.

  • traitors in our gov

    Bring your JIHAD… We Christians in America will not sit by and take it.. I agree somewhat with ya Big D. but we need to ouster the leaders of Iran and then pull back our military and guard our borders, since the illegal immigrants are basically attacking us from the south. Close off all borders and then we can get our stuff straight and start helping others again..

    We are no good to anyone if we can not keep our own home safe..

    Bring your JIHAD cowards.. WE HAVE THE GUNS..that is why you will not attack us outright.COWARDS HIDING BEHIND A COWARD NAMED MOHOMED(misspelled just to peave of some jihadist somewhere)…

  • eddie47d

    We don’t need to be ousting anyone unless they are a direct threat to the USA, “ousting leaders of Iran”. We already funded a coup back in the 50′s and that did not serve us well and only escalated our involvement in the Middle East.

    Stop the subsidizing of this country with American cash! Continue to be open to meaningful talks that advance the interest of the US in that region, but no more money until verifiable improvements occur.

      The only thing that concerns me is that if their government is taken over by those hostile to the U.S., would they try to use their nuclear weapons on us or our allies? That is a scary thought. Thank you.

    We use Packi Land to supply our troops in Afghanistan, that is why we bend over backwards to appease them. Once we get out of there, then we won’t have to rely on them. I look for a rising up of the Brotherhood to occur here in the future. Problem is that they have nukes. They hate India more than they do us, so there is a counter balance to exploit down the road. Middle East is only going to get worse and worse. Remember there is a force coming in the future from the north of Israel to bring total war to the region.

    I just realized that Saudis, I think, own most of the stock in our weapons companies.
    Pitting the best of our sons against the poor Islams ( not that any of them have produced anything since the advent of Islam )is always blues skies for Daddy Warbucks. And who do Clintons, Bama, Cheney and Bush kowtow to?
    We are hardly even getting oil from them.
    Our entire fleet is based over there for them.
    Would Saudi investors perpetrate 9/11 just to show a profit on their armament portfolios?
    Gee, what kind of people are they? – and they have so much respect for us!
    No, it will get worse and worse until they pit us against the Chinese.
    Good and bad news however, if the US ever becomes impotent the Chinese and Russians will exterminate them.

  • Bob McCormick

    If Pakistan wants to cut ties with the West, I say go for it, we will save billions in foreign aid. I fail to see why we continue to provide welfare to an enemy state that knowingly harbored Osama BinLaden, and continues to allow arms and personnel to cross into Afghanistan for the purpose of making war on the U.S. What’s more, given the fact that the Federal Government is technically bankrupt (morally as well as financially) we need to stop providing welfare to all foreign countrys

  • EARL KNUTSON

    QUIT SENDING THEM MONEY AND QUIT LETTING THEM IN THE COUNTRY.
    ITS ABOUT TIME WE TOOK CONTROL.

  • Altaica

    We need to stop messing around there and stop spending our money on useless wars. Bring our troops home. Besides, the fuel thing is just lies that they tell us to get american support to stay there. Somewhere around 80% of our fuel comes from Canada and South American. If they put in the new pipelines that will increase. We need to stop lining their pockets and deal with relationships and issues in our own country and continent.

      Could you please cite the source that says where we get our oil from? Most of our oil comes from the Middle East, mostly from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and others in the region. Thank you.

      P.S. We could bring our troops home also, but reopen our bases in the Southwest to guard our boarders and help handle the drug situation there.

  • Christine

    Pull our troops out of Afghanistan so we can cut off aid to Pakistan. What a waste of money, effort, and lives trying to “save” those ungrateful countries.

  • Joyce from Loris

    Isn’t it amazing? Most of us know what our nation needs to do concerning Pakistan and other Middle East countries, yet our ELECTED officials, who are paid big bucks, can’t figure it out? WE, the average, every day Joe knows this, and THEY don’t? I can’t figure all this out. Our elected officials all sound so smart when they are campaigning. They sound like they have got it together, they are more than ready to go to Washington to make a difference. Once they get there, they must receive a dose of STUPID, because they are never effective and don’t know what to do anymore.

    • OneDamnAngryAmerican

      Sorry, Joyce! They “DO NOT” receive a “DOSE OF STUPID” when they arrive in Washinton. What they do-do, is “RECEIVE AN ENVELOPE FULL OF UNMARKED MONEY” Damn it, what planet did you “grow up” on? Huh? It sure wasn’t plantet earth, was it!

  • AJ

    Cut off their aid now!!!

  • cae

    First of all since pakistan is an unstable, corrupt nation the UN should do what they did to Iraq and insist Pakistan relinquish all nucleur weapons and then send inspectors often to ensure this is done.
    Then the US should stop all funding to this nation and leave them to their own resources or lack of!

  • OneDamnAngryAmerican

    Yo, Cae:

    You spelled “wank” and “off” incorrectly!

  • Jay

    Most people know that war(s) equals big profits, and the longer the war, the better! Maybe not for the average tax-payer, but some will profit immensely. Hmm, I wonder who?

  • WickedPickle

    Bring ‘um on! Let ‘um meet their ‘alla’.

  • http://gunner689 gunner689

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if India wiped Pakastan off the map ???

  • David

    I wonder what George Washington would make of all this?Those countries have been fighting each other for hunderds of years,Maybe if we hadn’t put our butts over there maybe they would’ve killed each other off by now.All this “holy War” crap started when the U.N. created the nation of Isreal.The countries in the Middle East,(most of them)are not our friends anyway,and yet we go on buying thier Over Priced Oil .

    • http://gunner689 gunner689

      better read a little deeper. the trouble started when The British dismantled the Ottoman Empire at the end of WW1 and all those little piss ant kingdoms were set up. The Israelies are God’s chosen people. Slander them at your peril. America already has one foot in the grave with legalized abortion and acceptance of homosexuality. Turning our back on Israel might be the final straw.
