Recent reports of Pakistans war profiteering are yet another reason why we cannot treat them as a trustworthy ally. Pakistan has allegedly submitted unsubstantiated and exaggerated claims about their efforts in the war on terror in order to get more money from the United States. The United States has denied over 40% of those claims in recent years. This highlights the growing mistrust that exists between our nations. In the midst of tensions with the United States, Pakistan hails China as their best friend. They play both sides and sell out to the highest bidder. The United States must realize that to Pakistan, we are only an ATM and it is time to shut off the machine until we know whose side Pakistan is on.
