You can almost imagine the conversation... "OK, what do you want me to write against them... OK.. Yes, please. The usual payment to the usual account. Thank you. Consider the article done and posted."
No surprise my comment below was deleted though it is neither offensive nor abusive.
I wonder what this writer's position was when now-terrorist former-hero Haqqani was a state guest in the White House with none other than US President Ronald Reagan... You know, that time not too long ago in a galaxy quite nearby, when US tax dollars were being spent to teach DDD (dead dog dictator) Zia how to crush democracy, create the ISI, fund black ops, and how to shove zealotry into a moderate Muslim Pakistan (and basket case Afghanistan) to make people consider the war against the Soviet occupiers an Islamic Jihad.
Ah, the irony, the irony. Good old fashioned conservative Christians in power funding with American tax payer money the creation of madrassahs and indoctrination programs, to teach young boys and men to kill or die fighting non-Muslim occupying armies....
Oooops, fast forward 30 years and that is our American soldiers now paying the price for that policy...
Once again, Pakistan was befriended when USA needed it, then used, abused, dumped it like a used Kleenex and now now, suddenly, puppet writers in many publications are writing op-eds about Pakistan as the new enemy.
So, so, predictable.
