With friends like Pakistan, who needs enemies?

Commentary: McClatchy: "Dismissing American objections, Pakistan has signed an agreement to run a natural-gas pipeline from Iran, spreading glee among the mullahs in Tehran. Pakistani officials, including Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, offered low-key objections to the American complaints, but other Pakistanis loudly broadcast their disdain for the United States.

Former Punjab Gov. Shahid Hamid called the American concern 'an insult to our independence and sovereignty,' while former Foreign Minister Mian Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri said 'we should not compromise at all as far as our basic interests are concerned.'

So much for cooperation from our 'ally,' recipient of billions of dollars in American aid every year. How many ways can the Pakistanis stab us in the back?"

Snip

Pakistan is supposed to mean "The Pure Country" now if that is not the definition of "oxymoron" what is?
