The president of Pakistan, Ali Zardari, accuses his money and arms provider, the US, of dancing with dictators. However, interestingly, President Ali Zadari is selective about the dictators he blames the US for dancing with.

A noticeably absent name is his other ally and financier, the absolute Saudi monarchy, which is responsible for the Wahhabization of Afghanistan and the people he is currently fighting in the Swat Valley.

 

The Saudis are pouring money into Ali Zadari’s treasury, just as they do into the US treasury. It is reported that the Saudi government also provides President Ali Zardari’s regime with about ninety thousand barrels of free oil every day.

 

Apparently, this assistance excludes the autocratic Saudi dynasty from the tyrannical group Zardari accuses the US of dancing with.
