Many an O’Bum’ass will come & go, many a Papistan will form & break – But Kashmir will remain an integral Indian state..

Barack Obama has understood the concerns of the PAKISTANIS & will be putting Hindustan on the operating table in a tough way. Hindustan must learn that if peace will have to be achieved in the subcontinent,then it must lay down its support for miscreants in Afghanistan,FATA,Balochistan & Karachi. Only then will peace be achievable!!

I’m a little surprised though how the President-elect could be so naive. To suggest that the US should try to help resolve Kashmir is not only acceptable to India but also will throw India ever more closer to China and Russia which I believe is not in the best interest of the US.

India must not only be seen as a potential counter to China but also a fellow democracy which shares all the ideologies US believes in. Also in the next few years India is going to offer Billions of dollars of opportunity in the nuclear industry alone. Indian economy is roaring and unlike china it is not export driven but a consumer driven which means with burgeoning middle class equal to the entire population of the US is a huge market for American businesses. It’s easy to do the Math.

By the way to address the Afghanistan-Pakistan issue, Pakistan must control it’s out of control Military/Militias. Divert Billions of dollars it is spending on the military and feed its dying economy, develop its rural areas, and for God’s sake educate its people. An inflation of 25% is beyond my comprehension. Do not promote terrorism and it should not be afraid of India. Indians do not believe in imperialistic ambitions. India needs a stable neighborhood for it to flourish and to be able to compete with China.

So you know the answer to Afghanistan problem is for Pakistan to stop promoting terrorism, reining in ISI and work with India to accept the current LOC as the international border. Bottom line is that US needs India in Asia as does India needs the US to ascend to its rightful position on the world stage

India has more muslims than pakistans total population, with a progrssive outlook. US is better served if Pakistan becomes like Indias than the other way round. Kashmir is already doing better and will do much better intigrating with Indian economy in full than otherwise.

By: Srini Thu, 20 Nov 2008 18:09:37 +0000 There is only one solution to the Kashmir problem.
A large part of it is now under illegal occupation of Pukistan. The day India gets hold of that part, the Kasmir problem is solved. If any one, that includes even the American President, thinks there is a different solution, he/she is then the biggest fool & idiot on this earth. Period.

By: sam Thu, 20 Nov 2008 02:03:07 +0000 Interesting report. The reporters are talking about Pakistan as if it is a problem for US to solve. They are morons.

By: Indian Wed, 19 Nov 2008 10:19:27 +0000 “Pakistan in turn will never fully turn its back on Islamist militants as long as it believes it might need them to counter India.”

–The Author seems to support & symphatize the Terrorist activities…

By: vijay Wed, 19 Nov 2008 09:11:17 +0000 1. The report gives few specifics on how it believes the Kashmir dispute can be resolved.

2. Does this herald a radical rethink in U.S. policy that will thrust Kashmir back into centre-stage, while in some ways diminishing India (in Indian eyes) by stressing its relationship with Pakistan?

I just wanted to point out the inconsistency above.

They seem to recommend the Iran,Pakistan, India Pipeline worth $8BN. Just wondering which is now a priority for this group ” Kashmir or this Pipeline”. How will this playout with American audience of a Iran angle when you give a go ahead for this.

I do not know much about US foreign policy, just wondering will a commitee formed by Pro Pak members have a more say in US foreign policy or they will try to balance this report with another independant body which reasons why they moved in the past decade to build ties with India.

As a journalist do you really think a indian economy which will add $1 trillion in next 7 years will see no participation from US or China & allow countries like germany,france,UK, Korea to capitalize on their policy shift.

Why would Pak army consider this report considering their diminished utility & also a $20BN assets created for their officers, solving a kashmir issue means they can’t hoodwink their public anymore.

With the economic crisis in the US hurting their citizens so badly, do you think the committee recommendations even remotely will be accepted by their legislature.

I am sure you will give credit to people in subcontinent that people will see through these opportunistic manipulation easily.

We must learn actually not to have enemies, but only confused adversaries who are ourselves in disguise.
