    I just want to know how much we're paying in foreign aid to Pakistan as the nation unravels.

    I want to know what we are going to pay, not in money so much, but in setbacks in combating terrorism if this government falls.

    We shout democracy from the mountain top, then turn right around and ally ouselves with thugs. The outcome is what one would expect.

    I well remember him. Many of my shipmates in the Navy were from the Philippines, and heard many stories about this thug from the past.

    Every time we seek support from dictators, thugs, renegades, and the like, it blows up in our face. How many times will it take for us to learn? You would have thought our support for Saddam in the 80s would have been enough to learn.
