Many people are still under a rose-colored delusion that Pakistan is - or ever was - some semblance of an ally (“U.S. sees 2 faces of Pakistan,” Page 1, Monday).

Pakistan played footsie with the Soviet Union and Red China behind our backs throughout the Cold War. Pakistan funded and set up the Taliban and hid Osama bin Laden in plain sight for years, all the while feeding us very well-crafted, false intelligence to throw us off the trail.

Pakistanis have never been an ally and never will be. They do not secretly help us; they secretly snicker behind our backs. Everyone in America seems to know this except for the pointy heads in Washington. If the Soviet Union with its thousands upon thousands of nuclear warheads was not “too nuclear to fail,” then how is Pakistan? What is being advocated with Pakistan is the Neville Chamberlain School of Appeasement.

Pakistan is an enemy and low-rate one at that. As such, it should be kicked to the curb, or kicked in the teeth when it steps out of line.
