The Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA find Osama bin Laden has been sentenced to 33 years in jail for treason.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

Ours when it comes to begging for money. Otherwise, not so much.

We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

As someone mentioned above, Pakistan's problem is its people.......ever since the British division, Pakistan has had severe difficulties governing itself, much of the country is tribal territory, essentially uncontrolled by the central body, subject to tribal leaders and law.
The government tries to be secular, because of the military, who control the nuclear weapons, and the secular civil authority is constantly walking a fine line between appeasing a substantial percentage of the population who are islamists, and Taliban, et al sympathizers, and the military taking control again
The government is constantly under threat from a military coup, or an islamist takeover.......
It's not a good situation, and likely never will get any better.......
