U.S. officials have long been frustrated by what they see as Pakistan's reluctance to act against groups such as the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network that they believe exploit safe haven on Pakistani soil to launch attacks on neighboring Afghanistan.

U.S. official expressed hope that relations between the two countries could improve after a kidnapped U.S.-Canadian couple and their three children were freed in Pakistan in October. The couple was abducted in neighboring Afghanistan.

"We are hoping to see those changes, we are hoping to work together with the Pakistanis going forward to eliminate terrorists who are crossing" the border, Nicholson said.

Nicholson gave an optimistic view of the situation, saying he believed "we are on our way to a win."

Pakistan (and others) know that Dotard likes bling.

This was Pakistan tossing "bling" at the Dotard... and it worked. Dotard said "a country that didn't respect us before now respects us again".

Yep. Whatever makes you happy. LOL

When Obama was President, I said, "my goodness.... it'll be impossible for the Americans to elect a bigger idiot..."

But they did.

They really DID!

Gawd I love this country.
