The United States government has finally concluded the farce about the Haqqani network must finally end. This band of Muslim fanatics who seek to constantly kill and destroy have been protected by the Pakistan intelligence agency, the ISI which uses these murderous people as a means of perpetuating chaos in Afghanistan in order to prevent any group from gaining power. The ISI fears that an independent Afghanistan might reach out to India for financial support.
The US State Department wants to brand the group in order to curtail its power to raise money. One official said it was time to “put the squeeze on these guys.” Pakistan will undoubtedly complain, continuing supplying these murderers and protest at US interference in their internal affairs.
Perhaps, it is time to call the bluff of Pakistan and let them know the endless supplies and money might end.
