Let them have F-16s II

Pakistan has been battling a growing problem of drug addiction in the country. Most users rely on local NGOs for treatment and rehabilitation, but these are often weighed down by a lack of funds. Now, a leading charity has shut down after a dispute with the government cut off vital support for thousands of people. Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra reports.

In related news, President Zardari told reporters the newly acquired F-16s from the US will not upset the regional balance of power.

  1. are not these planes the ones for which Pakistan paid “decades” ago? Why US did not deliver them as per contract to Pakistan in 80’s probably?

    i wonder what their delivery has to do with present govt’s lack of developing social welfare programs – pls elaborate?
