White House to help Pakistan fight extremism

Really, the United States is going to help Pakistan fight extremism? Who are they kidding? These people (Muslims) are still living in the Stone Age. They’re ignorant beyond belief, and as such their entire existence revolves around their superstitious beliefs.

Certainly the U.S. is just playing politics. I can’t imagine that our “leaders” in Washington are gullible enough to actually believe we can change the mindset of these religious fools. TGO

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The United States on Wednesday said its commitment to helping Pakistan root out violent extremism would not waver, following the assassination of the governor of Punjab province.

The White House added its voice to condolences offered to the family of Governor Salman Taseer on Tuesday by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“This is an individual who had worked hard to promote tolerance and his loss is a great one for Pakistan,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

“We remain committed to the efforts that the Pakistani government is (taking) and must undertake to root out violent extremism and to bring greater peace and stability to that country and to that region of the world.

On Tuesday, Clinton said she had admired Taseer’s work to promote tolerance and education and described his death as a “great loss.”

Taseer was one of the most moderate voices in the main ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and personified the liberal elite, free from the emotive tug of conservative Islam but often criticized as detached from the masses.

It was the most high-profile political killing in Pakistan since former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in December 2007.

Taseer was killed by a bodyguard who opposed his criticism of controversial blasphemy laws, officials said, after an incident which plunged nuclear-armed Pakistan into deeper political chaos.

    Another load of bull shit from the US….. !
    The Pakistani army is at the root of extremism in Pakistan. It has been running terrorist training camps for decades, is hand in glove with the terrorist outfits that operate in broad daylight in Pakistan. The Americans know every bit about it, but can do nothing, because they need the Pakistani Army to carry out their dirty works in return for dollars and weapons.

      In my humble opinion, this is all a bunch of crappola. The United States government/military must be in bed with all of these foreign governments, playing good cop/bad cop and jerking them off. There is no way that anyone will convince me (unless they have evidence of course) that the U.S. government or that of the United Kingdom can be snookered by these brainless towel-heads.

      It’s just really disgusting that our governments (in the West) lie to the general population. I suppose that’s what politics is all about; bullshit and more bullshit…
