and i'm not surprised. Countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan have such close-knit communities. Reminds me of my teacher. She found out that her father used to work for MI6 in Pakistan/Afghanistan back in the 80's. He said the west can never defeat them. I'd be surprised if the US could count the killing of Bin Laden as a victory!

They can't. Its symbolic more than anything.

Terrorist groups have distanced themselves from Al Qaeda in recent years and there will be new groups emerging for years to come.

This could lead to some groups trying to retaliate and by putting their name to the organisation that is Al Qaeda. Someone will want to step up the plate and take over where Bin Laden is no longer present. For all we know the next person to come along and the next person to start running Al Qaeda could be far more extreme than Bin Laden himself.

The only surprising thing here is that America ever trusted Pakistani security in the first place.

Who's surprised?

Pakistan has been the elephant in the room for a long time as far as the West is concerned. Pakistan is the real enemy, and it's only a matter of time before the showdown occurs.

Having said that, I don't think it was necessarily a bad idea to give them £650m in educational aid, and if Cameron is as smart as I think he is, then he knew exactly what he was doing when he did it.

Given that the ISI helped out the terrorist group that carried out the Mumbai shootings in '07, I'm really not surprised.

Cameron gave 650m to Pakistan whilst they protected Osama Bin Laden?

I say that we withdraw all aid we are giving them until they sort their country out.
