Pakistan has played a “double game” with the United States for years, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has alleged, saying it is unacceptable to the Trump administration.

Haley came out in support of President Donald Trump’s decision to block USD 255 million military aid to Pakistan.

“There are clear reasons for this. Pakistan has played a double game for years,” Haley told reporters at a new conference at the UN headquarters in New York on Tuesday.

“They (Pakistanis) work with us at times, and they also harbour the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan. That game is not acceptable to this administration,” Haley said.

The Trump Administration expects far more co-operation from Pakistan in the fight against terrorism, she said.

“Trump is willing to go to great lengths to stop all funding from Pakistan as they continue to harbour and support terrorism,” Haley said in her opening remarks during her first news conference of the year.

Haley said the aid issue is connected solely to Pakistan’s harbouring of terrorists.

      A country who first disowned the dead bodies of their soldier in Kargil, and after few years who it was claiming victory, that is a biggest pathetic country of liars Pakistan. Its people disown their own history and love to believe they are Arabs, especially they act like more Arab than Arabs. But the Arabs treat the Pakis as their born and willing sl aves and keep ki cking their as ses. Pakistan is country born of hatred and they live in hatred towards all non-Muslims. They lie religiously all the time. But the US was always a friend to Pakistan and it always stood with Pakistan and against India. US will change its position again and will become friend of Pakistan again. The che at of Pakistan will che at the US again. India should not care what US is doing, but should break Pakistan into at least four pieces. That is the only way to stop the evil. India and world community must also free Balochistan from evil oppression of Pakistan.

        If/when india were a muslim majority country will it remain secular and what will happen to remaining Hindus ? Going by the happennings of recent history and nature of islam , it is ovbious that it will become an islamic state and not a secular state . For the remaining Hindus , many worse outcomes may happen , best one can say is that all will be converted to Islam and allowed to stay ( that is the best one can hope from muslims though worse may happen) . So this shows were one stands and why one opposes islam and why muslims who demand secularism and rights in india are hypocrits .

            Good, finally these backstabbers are getting punched in the face! These parrot nosed barbarians only understand one language: force. We finally have strong leaders in the US and India to walk the talk.
