Something urgent needs to be done by the civilian government to prevent this mishap. Have a look at what this Indian site says.http://www.indohistory.com/history_ of_pakistan.html

People are quick to blame corrupted politicians but when the same politicians said that Kashmir is the main issue of the nation, people supported them.I believe $4 billion military budget is a lot for a country like Pak. On top of it provoking military attitudes added little more burden on bleeding economy.There are very few countries like Bharat (India) that came out of IMF death trap. Pak might have resources to recover but it can never recover from terrorism that it has created to counter the neighbors.I do not know how many Pakistanis know that their government sold thousands of acres of agriculture land to Saudis to clear debts. I guess it is time for Bharat to bid for Punjab to begin with.

Atleast defaulting would give us a chance to make a fresh start. For pulling back the forces, why should we continue to do the dirty work of the Americans when we have to face criticism and ADVICE from every tom and harry in USA on how to fight the war and what to do (even some suggestions on this comment section). Hey where were these same intellectuals when the USA banks were lending to sub prime customers. We have again, with US blessings, being forced a new President. If none of the countries think we are worth as a friend why waste our time?

Their police, judiciary, provincial and local governments, so-called elected members are all corrupt to core. Just ask these elected government representatives where they got money to fund their election? I bet you they are already using their ill-gotten power to cover their money and lot more. Political parties are organized to serve a few of their own.Unless there is accountability in all sector of government, you can throw any money there and it will be swallowed leaving no trace. Just ask Mr. Ten Percent, President and previous governments. Have they ever put a hard day of work in their life? They are all the same, CORRUPT TO THE CORE.Ahmed, Los Angeles

Police andbeurocrats should be cut by 40percent. To face thecurrent financial crisis in Pakistan….The “businessempire” of Pakistani military should be privatised andmilitary industries and their bussiness should besold to bring money.
