Despite knowing that Pakistan provided a safe haven for Osama bin Laden and that the country does not care about the United States' interests, America has no choice but to play nice and funnel billions there, according to University of Michigan Professor Raymond Tanter, president of the American Committee on Human Rights.

"There's no choice with respect to Pakistan," Tanter said Friday on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

"Pakistan is a tinderbox of nuclear weapons and you cannot walk away from Pakistan. India can't walk away from Pakistan. Pakistan is the most … serious threat to the United States' interests because of the large number of bombs and the fact that it's becoming a failed state."

If Pakistan fails, all of its nuclear weapons may well end up in the hands of terror groups, including branches of al-Qaida, something the U.S. cannot allow to happen, Tanter said.

"When looking at Pakistan, it's imperative to understand that those in the region are more concerned with tribal allegiance than national identity.

"There are no borders between Pakistan and Afghanistan," Tanter said. "There's just something called the federal administered territory, the FATA, and it's a porous border, if you will."
