RUSH: Dawson in Waterville, Maine. Great to have you on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Thanks for taking my call, man.
CALLER: Hey, thanks for taking my call.
CALLER: I wanted to talk about something. I’m reading on the Fox website today that Pakistan has gone out and arrested five of its citizens who were working with the United States in regards to this whole Bin Laden thing.
CALLER: I don’t know what this war on terrorism is coming to, but this is just ridiculous. These guys were saying they were pissed off that somebody was like covering this up, this Bin Laden thing, and hiding them; and they said they were gonna go after these people that were hiding Bin Laden; and they’re going after the exact opposite people. They’re going after the people that were helping us find Bin Laden. It’s time we cut those billions off that we’re giving these people. They’re not working with us. I don’t know how much more clear they can make it.
RUSH: Yeah, but —
CALLER: As far as I’m concerned, we should let them know, “We’re taking our money, we’re taking our military, we’re going over to India, and we’re gonna still do the attacks over your borders when you like it or not,” and India would be more than delighted to work with us, because they’re still pissed off about that whole hotel terrorism thing.
RUSH: Let me tell you something: The problem with our relationship with “Pok-ee-stahn” (as it’s pronounced in the White House), is not Pok-ee-stahn. The problem is Obama and Hillary and a bunch of incompetents in dealing with this. If we had some responsible people in the intel division, if we had some responsible people at the Department of State, it would be a much different scenario — a much different situation. The reason why I don’t think we can just tell Pakistan to go pack it in is nukes. They have nukes! You know, Pakistani leaders over there have to play a little bit of a double game with their own people.
Protecting Bin Laden and so forth? Doing the exact opposite of what they told us that they were going to do? I don’t know. That, to me, is not that surprising. We’re not talking all that much money anyway here. In terms of pulling out of Pakistan with the money, we’re not gonna make a dent in our deficit or what have you. I think this is largely due to who we have running the country right now. It’s just the wrong people, who are not qualified, who have just an incorrect worldview that has informed them forever about the United States role in the world — and they’re just willing for us to get stomped on because they think we deserve it! They think we deserve to get screwed because they think we’ve screwed the rest of the world since our founding.
RUSH: I think Pakistan needs to remember they’re either with us or with the terrorists. There is no third choice, but with Obama, even if he would say that, are they gonna believe it? I think they’d laugh at Obama if Obama were to say, “Okay, Pakistan, you’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists, and if you choose the terrorists, then you get the drones.” Now, Obama did threaten to bomb Pakistan’s nukes back in 2004 and during the 2008 campaign he went off the reservation, he went rogue and he started talking about nuking or bombing Pakistan then. Everybody said, “What is he talking about, this neophyte?” If Pakistan went rogue, he was pretty pointed about this.
I don’t really know if it’s a result of Musharraf being thrown out. I’m sure that’s a factor. The bottom line here is would somebody explain to me, when we have all of the signs, all the evidence of incompetence, everything this administration touches domestically, why do we assume they know what they’re doing in foreign policy? “Well, Rush, he’s got people there. These appointed people.” Really, Hillary Clinton knows what she’s doing? What is her track record? Honest to God, folks, what is her historically successful track record at anything? Bosnia, whoop-de-do. She’s living off a reputation she doesn’t deserve created by the left-wing media, out of sympathy. I don’t see where we’ve got any adults with any competence making any of these decisions, and I don’t know why we should assume that they know what they’re doing. We’d like to, for our own sense of comfort and so forth.
