    Be grateful, ‘cuz you never know.

    Israel and the US conduct these disputes in public, because we’re both democracies. Egypt and the Gulf countries generally know better.

    “The Pakistanis are more two-faced about it. Nobody is better at hating America, envying America, and undercutting America while pocketing American cash than the Pakistani military.”

    You are far too kind to the Pakistanis. They have waged war against the United States in Afghanistan where units controlled by Pakistan have made many lethal attacks on American soldiers and civilians. Further, because they succored Osama bin Laden in the shadow of their military academy for so many years, they should be presumed to be responsible for 9/11.

    The US should complete the withdrawal of all American military, diplomatic, and civilian personnel from Afghanistan and Pakistan ASAP. We should then proceed to bomb all Pakistani military installations and equipment, especially the expensive toys we gave them, until their remaining military equipment consists solely of muzzle loading muskets.

    “Egypt and Pakistan to reconcile nationalist military pride with the reality that each country can only get by with the international equivalent of food stamps. ”

    In Heaven’s name, what do the Egyptian and Pakistan military have to be proud of, the fake medals they adorn themselves with?
