Whose Side Is Our Government On? US To Deliver 1000 Laser Guided Bombs To Pakistan

I’ve been ranting for quite some time now that our government is insane, selling sophisticated weapons to Islamic states. You would think we would have learned our lessons over the years. We befriended Turkey, allowed them into NATO, and now they are renouncing secularism, and returning to Islam and Sharia law. They are even siding with Iran against the necessary attack on Iranian nuclear facilities by the United States or Israel! How stupid were we to sell them modern weapons, that now might be turned against us and/or Israel, as Muslims further their attempts to re-establish the Ottoman Empire?

Then, of course, we sold millions of dollars worth of weapons to the Taliban in Afghanistan back in the 80’s. Of course, that was ok, because the Taliban, even though not very likable, were fighting the Russians. And, as they say, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Oops, I guess that was not the best decision, since they are now using those weapons, quite effectively, against us and the Russians are (at least sort of, sometimes) our friend.

Then, we announced a while back that we were going to sell the most advanced F-16 fighters to Pakistan. That would be the same Pakistan that has nuclear weapons which may soon fall into the hands of those same Taliban. Well, not just the Taliban. Given the close ties between the Pakistani military and the ISI with both the Taliban and al Qaeda, those weapons could well fall into the hands of bin Laden. In fact, if things keep going like they are in that part of the world, bin Laden might be elected President of Pakistan after the Taliban and/or al Qaeda take over the country. If an election was held, he would certainly win in a landslide over any of the current, or past, leadership of Pakistan. (Or Afghanistan, for that matter.)

But, today it was announced that we will sell Pakistan 1000 laser guided bombs!

Air Force spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jeffry Glenn said the United States delivered 1,000 MK-82 500-pound bombs to Pakistan last month, and was considering additional requests for those bombs and more laser-guided tail kits.

Glenn said an initial batch of 700 GBU-12 and 300 GBU-10 Paveway laser-guided bomb kits built by Lockheed and Raytheon Co (RTN.N) would be delivered to Pakistan this month, allowing the Pakistani air force to outfit the MK-82 bombs delivered last month with sophisticated technology that allows better targeting of the weapons.

Those are to go with the shiny new F-16’s that we have sold to them. What could possibly go wrong? After all, Pakistan is our friend, just like Saudi Arabia! (It’s only an unfortunate coincidence that the vast majority of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi citizens.)

This is not only spitting in the face of one of our increasingly few and genuine friends in the world, India, but it should scare  any sensible non-Muslim, including Americans, to death! Imagine if Iran had such weapons! And, lets face it, the only real difference between Iran and Pakistan is that Iran is Shite and Pakistan is Sunni. From a purely geopolitical/economic point of view, Iran would be a more likely ally, since they have oil, which we value, while Pakistan, quite frankly, has nothing of value to offer. They are both Islamic nations, and they both hate us because we are not Muslims.  If our thinking was that Pakistan would use the weapons to eliminate Iran’s nuclear facilities, I might be a little less harsh on this insane decision. But, lets face it, if Pakistan does use these weapons, it will be against Infidels, not fellow Muslims.

Damn, where did I put that roll of duct tape. I feel like my head is about to explode.
