Two American security experts have called on the Trump administration to seriously consider fresh options in dealing with a terrorist-supporting, and irresponsible nuclear state like Pakistan, the Big News Network website reports today (March 11, 2017).
In an article appearing in "The National Interest," Congressman Ted Poe, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee's Subcommittee on Terrorism, and James Clad, former U.S. deputy assistant secretary of defense in the George W. Bush administration, said: "The United States has acquiesced in a toxic relationship with Pakistan, putting up with this nominal ally whose military and security leaders play a lethal double game."
They added: "Most dangerously, the "game," if one can call it that, involves head-long nuclear weapons production and exporting Islamist terrorism."
They conclude: "Something must change in our dealings with a terrorist-supporting, irresponsible nuclear-weapons state [like Pakistan], and it must change soon. Acquiescing in the current trends is not an option."
