How much Pakistani blood should shed before our politician decide that opening border for NATO and afghan is bad idea

I'm angry that those trucks are moving at all. Part of the 'deal' to get them moving should have been to get Dr. Afridi out and then, if he wants, let him, with his family, move West. After Dr. Afridi's arrest, many, many Americans are angry that we give Pakistan any money at all. However, since it's not aid as some call it, it's money Pakistan earns for helping NATO. I don't think jailing Dr. Afridi is exactly helping out though. We don't believe the other reasons Pakistan gave for imprisoning this brave man. Is this what an 'ally' does?
