Role of a Friend

The US is providing Pakistan with aid, but the reasin is its own interests. The US has been demanding different things and now they have asked Musharraf for Mianwali airbase.
Colin Powell calls Musharraf his friend, but the government should not blindly trust the US. We have not yet forgotten 1971, when we kept waiting for its help against Indian, in the process we lost half the country. A firend in need is a friend indeed.
