Kerry-Lugar debate

Sunday, October 11, 2009

Accepting the Kerry-Lugar bill will mean that every Pakistani gets eight dollars every year for the next five years. Compare this with the two thousand dollars given unconditionally to each Israeli over the past twelve years. Why doesn't the bill require the Pakistan government to arrange repatriation of the hundred billion dollars illegally transferred abroad from the country and kept in secret bank accounts or invested in property? Is it because they know that their puppets here will be adversely affected?
