[QUOTE=UTR;2587555]What I think we should do is get a certain number of their nukes and their equipment to manufacture nukes for every billion dollars we give them. Then when we have bought all their nukes/equipment we won’t have a reason to be in Afghanistan. IMO, Pakistan having nukes is why we are in the region at this point. Three billion a year is cheaper than having their nukes get into the wrong hands.[/QUOTE]
- With those billions, they’ll make 10x as many, with updated technology, probably stolen from india, which the US is sharing tech with now.
- The USA does NOT want to be seen stockpiling nukes … it’ll look bad, with the nuclear non-proliferation treaty & whatnot.
What the heck is the USA doing, giving money to pakistan. $3Billion could go to the red cross, or sponsor a crapload of more efficient charity foundations to wander into Pakistan and fix the damn country - most of the work is done by volunteers …
It’s a matter of bang for the buck.
$3billion dollars can: build 60,000 homes in pakistan …
$3billion dollars can: line the pockets of corrupt Pakistani politicians, officials, police officers/army/terrorists and build 5 homes.
