 File under: Govt of Pakistain Proxies 

#1 Finally, a UN Ambassador that understands Pakistan is not our friend and has been a source of instability in the region since its birth, and terror as of late.

She has all the "piss off the progressives" checkboxes ticked: Patriotic, Conservative, Republican, Religious (Catholic adult convert), strong, and unafraid to slap down the evil regimes and the UN (redundant?) in public. What makes its sting is they cant go after her with the victim card because she is female and ethnic minority and family is recent (legal) immigrant who worked their way up.

#2 As long as it (Pakistan) agreed to sell us Bin Laden, it was our friend.

#3  As long as it (Pakistan) agreed to sell us Bin Laden, it was our friend.

More like 'friend of convenience'.

You can find those listed under 'escorts' in the directory, btw.

#4 Oh boy, was I pleased to see Pappy
Remindin' us everything's crappy!
Got right back to fightin'
My trite Enid Blyton,
But, just for a moment, was happy.

Seriously, though.

#5 Ah, our dear friend Pakistan,
Cuddles up with us, along with Afghanistan.
Then they'll give us the back of their hand,
That's all there is to understand.

#8 When dealing with the Taliban, I prefer the Korben Dallas negotiation style. Effective, and get the point across!

#9  Don't let your clearance lapse meneer.

You go, Pappy! Illegitimi non carborundum

As for the Korben Dallas thing, there is something to be said for talking to people in a language they understand.
