Why do we continue to pretend Pakistan is our ally?

The United States' intelligence sharing with Pakistan as part of a trust-building effort by the Obama administration post-May 2 raid has only led to tip-offs to militants, indicating that some Pakistani security personnel are colluding with insurgents.

The US provided Pakistan with the specific locations of insurgent bomb-making factories twice in recent weeks, only to see the militants learn their cover had been blown and vacate the sites before military action could be taken, The Washington Post reported, citing US and Pakistani officials.

We need to seize and secure their nuclear weapons, shut down their nuclear program, and then sit back and wait for their internal conflicts to destroy them.
