US Must Support Pakistan

Pakistan is in a balancing act right now with internal radical Islamics getting hot around the collar over the increased action against terrorists within the country, both in the northern area near the boarder with Afghanistan and the south eastern boarder with India near Kashmir.

No peace loving country would absolve Pakistan from its responsibility to root out and bring to justice terrorists and sponsors of terrorists within the country, but the interests of the present government also are to root out these threats to national and international peace. Pakistan has already lost over 1,000 men battling insurgents in the north in the face of growing local pressure. We must accept and encourage this nuclear armed state to continue and that a prosperous and peaceful Pakistan comes only through the democratic rule of natural law and a resistance to any theocratic Islamic rule.

We can't allow Pakistan to be ruled by a Taliban.
