Clinton seeks more from Pakistan in terror fight

How come every time Hillary goes to Pakistan , It costs us Taxpayers more Money ?

Now maybe , there will be some more Taliban Killed by the Pakistani Military , but not enough to really amount to much , That will take a few more rounds of Aid !

Paying off someone before they perform never works in the real world , But for some reason the Obama Administration operates like it is the way to go .

ISLAMABAD — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday announced major aid projects for Pakistan as she sought tougher action from Islamabad to combat militants ahead of a key donor meeting in Afghanistan.

Clinton is bidding to build on a shaky alliance with Pakistan, whose mountainous western border shields Taliban militants fighting the insurgency next door, as well as groups responsible for attacks in the United States.

The aid focused on water and energy needs of Pakistan is part of US efforts to deepen engagement with the Asian nuclear power and overcome rife anti-Americanism after years of perceived neglect of bilateral relations.

Washington believes Pakistan is integral to any result in the Afghan war and has long voiced concern that Pakistan's powerbrokers were supporting Taliban insurgents, despite crackdowns by the military in some border areas.

Clinton met Pakistan's prime minister and president on Sunday and in a media interview acknowledged greater joint efforts on terrorism, but called for "additional measures" from Islamabad to combat militants on its soil.

"There are still additional steps that we are asking and expecting the Pakistanis to take," she told the BBC.

"... there is no doubt in anyone?s mind that should an attack against the United States be traced to be Pakistani it would have a very devastating impact on our relationship," she added.
