Pakistan needs to reassess priorities

I HOPE that I am not stoned to death by liberals for asking this, but could someone please explain to me why we are sending millions in aid to Pakistan?
I, of course, like anyone else, sympathise with the plight of the ordinary people there who are suffering.
What I do not understand -- and it happens time and again -- is why a tiny country like Ireland, especially at a time of such recession, is sending financial aid at the drop of a hat to a country with one of the world's biggest armies?
