If Pakistan supports terrorism and the USA and UK continues to support Pakistan with billions of dollars doesn't that mean they also support?

The same thing, directly or otherwise? I mean, Pakistan's still officially an ally, right?

    That whole international support thing is really tricky.  It's not nearly as simple as it looks, especially in countries like Pakistan.

    If you think the USA is dealing with political and racial tensions, you don't even want to know what goes on in places like Pakistan.  Any time those countries aren't in the midst of a civil war or armed revolution, they're on the verge of one.  Political / religious groups are constantly committing murder, rape, kidnapping and torture with dismal regularity, and it's nearly impossible to tell who the 'good' guys are most days.  At best, the 'legitimate' governments of those countries, and their alliance with the west, are highly questionable.

    But large numbers of their people have no food, no clean water and no basic medical care, so the First World is obligated to step in and provide international aid.  The governments of these aid-needing countries give assurances that the aid will be accepted and will reach those in need without interference (I think the pinky-swear is used), and the west believes them.  The west also sends international aid on a non-political basis, with very few questions asked.

    It is all about the oil really. There is a massive oil and gas pipeline project that includes Pakistan, so money is more important than morality.

    It is over ran with Islamic Muslims and they have never been an ally to a Christian.  In America, we have many Christian Muslims that have left Islam.

    At some point in history, every man must choose to whom he will serve either God or man.  God will not have it any other way.  It is called in Scripture - The Valley of Decision.  Joshua 24:15 "Choose you this day whom you will serve...."
