Republicans Pull a Pakistan!

The Republican Party has become very much like Pakistan in the US Congress.

What do I mean?

Well, US governments since the 1950's have been dealing with Pakistan as if Pakistan is a viable, reliable partner.
The US govt. got what it deserved. The US govt. exploited and manipulated Pakistan. By EXPLOITING Pakistan for 60 years, since the early 1950's, the US has created a dependent, though occasionally defiant, but still ALWAYS dependent client-state.
That is neither good for the US nor for Pakistan.
That is unethical double-dealing and the predictable result has been tragic for Pakistan and the Pakistani people, and counterproductive for US foreign policy in South Asia.

Just like the Democrats mistakenly viewed the Republicans in the House and the Senate.

Dems in the US Congress thought that Republicans could be counted on to be cooperative, collaborative and would pursue a bipartisan agenda that would benefit the American people. In fact the Dems capitulated to the Republican rightwing, antidemocratic agenda, beginning with Clinton and now continuing with Obama.

What happened instead?

When you Sow the wind, you reap the whirlwind.

In the US Congress, Republicans are pulling a Pakistan!
