    Pakistan Parliament Threatens Sanctions against US

    (CNN) -- Pakistan's parliament threatened Saturday to cut off access to a facility used by NATO forces to ferry troops into Afghanistan, signaling a growing rift that began when U.S. commandos killed Osama bin Laden during a raid on a Pakistani compound.

    A resolution adopted during a joint session of parliament condemned the U.S. action. It also called for a review of its working agreement with the U.S., demanded an independent investigation and ordered the immediate end of drone attacks along its border region.

    Failure to end unilateral U.S. raids and drone attacks will force Pakistan to "to consider taking necessary steps, including withdrawal of (the) transit facility" used by the NATO's International Security Assistance Force, according to the resolution.

    U.S. lawmakers have questioned how the world's most wanted terrorist managed to live in plain sight for years in Pakistan -- near the country's elite military academy -- without being detected.

    Come on, people. You aren't really going to let Pakistan think they pulling wool over anyone's eyes, are you?

    With the popular position being that we should discontinue aid to Pakistan ($2 billion in the 2012 budget), they've hired lobbyists to make sure they keep that funding. And now, they are thumping their chests in the hopes that we'll even increase the funding.

    And it would not surprise me if we did just that.

    They know they were caught double dealing. The only way they can try to mitigate that is to blame us for something. The best defense is a good offense, I suppose.

    It would be the prudent thing to do. Their continued "cooperation"-- sparse as it is-- is an invaluable asset to our continued anti-terror operations in the region.

    Pumping yet more money into a perpetual failure such as the US war on terror seems to be standard US policy. No, wait! I almost forgot that those endless borrowed billions are 'Protecting Americans'. Isn't that the standard MIC line?
