Apology accepted. Understand, I will put down India every now and then. As I have my own country (most of the time) and other countries. I’m a critic by nature, however understand also I will also praise my own country (most of the time) and other countries and India.

Anyways lets get over it. I left a reply on the other blog post in regards to your reply to the BBC link I had posted. Feel free to criticize it if you want. Your 2007,2007,2007 in 2009 was funny.

I perceive your initial post smirked of bias & had an underlying deceptive motive of putting down India, but if you say that it was not so your intentions, then, I,accept you words to be true & sincerely apologize for my retorts…

Not everything is demons and angels in there.

Yes, I found your statements hostile. But I didn’t identify myself as an ‘oppressor’. You did. Through your inferrence, that if a person found your statements hostile therefore is an ‘oppressor’.

And the ‘plain awareness’ was not a generalization. No, your ‘beware the smooth talking Pakistani’ (I’ll take it as a compliment) to Afghan was in regards to me, not a generalized statement. Clearly you distrust me and believe I have ‘WILY’ intentions with fabricated propaganda, as written in the other blog post. I assure EVERYONE here, I do not. This is not the first time I’ve been accused of it, as my own Pakistani brethren a couple of weeks ago thought I was an Indian masquerading as a Pakistani. You can check the backlog of comments under the names Saf and bigsaf. I won’t try to convince you Anup. But please stop attacking my character. Thanks.

Ali on this comment
“Yes we have our intrest and so does all the other neighours so what???”
Its true countries around the world have interests in their neighbors. However those interests are generally mutually beneficial for both countries. What Pakistan did by supporting the Taliban, was to create a proxy of fanatics and sidelining the other ethnicities of Afghanistan (who are also incidentally sidelined in our majority Pashtun province as well without any representation) also insuring no relationships with India out of spite. If we blast the US and India on their interests, surely we should do the same here as this was a very horrid policy.

Afghan, though resentment towards Pakistan is in its place, you should recognize now the onus is on the Afghans and now’s the time to surge as the militants are preoccupied in Pakistan. Personally I think Karzai’s been horrible. On top of which corruption has eeked through all new institutions including the Afghan army and police with the reports of abuse also still rampant. And I’m sure you’ve seen ‘Taxi to the Dark Side’ where an honest taxi driver, though tortured by the Americans, is betrayed by a pro-ally Afghan warlord.

All this is unacceptable. We must recognize our own weaknesses and of course the entire region’s. There’s no point in finger pointing (at least all the time) without taking action on our own soils. Notice bombings in Pakistan and Afghanistan have decreased, though militancy is still well and alive and we can’t be deluded that there’s a quiet population that may get ideologically exploited and burst.

What I’m saying is cool down the rhetoric and the degrading comments and realize the other man’s POV. It maybe wrong or a one sided view however but still needs to be examined. Anyways hope this helps bridge the animosity. For some reason I know I’m going to get flamed, just don’t know by whom yet. lol. I’ll take it in stride. šŸ˜‰

Anitha:
I enjoyed the funny poems on Zardari. How I hate him. And I know you’re trying to get to Ali. However please try not to use slurs against all Pakistanis as it also hurts the sentiments of those who aren’t against you. Thanks.

Ok you must have had few dvd’s copied ones as well from starnews to brainwash you i thought brainwashing is only for the mad mullahs hey i was so wrong lol.

As NATO spokesman commented your government is the MOST CORRUPT— sorry pakistan is behind it!

Brother of Hamid Karzai is suppose the the main drug dealer or profitting from it — sorry Pakistan is behind it!!!

After 8 years of help from international community no health centres, roads or any new schools and the goverment is only controling kabul and mr karazi is dubbed the MAYOR OF KABUL- sorry pakistan is behind it.

Afghans selling there country to russians!!! oh pakistan was behind it!!!

Not recognising that pashtuns are majorty in that country but do not have any real representation in the government except for the puppet karzai whos days are also numbered and even his words he ”needs to do millions times better”. Surely when yu are ging to ose your seat you remeber the normal afghans.

Yes we have our intrest and so does all the other neighours so what??? whats the big deal every country is there to look after its intrest. How can you be blame other when simply you lot want to bend over and get bumed by all the neighours surely that is also PAKISTANS problem lol hena.

one advise for GROW UP u poor afghan!!!
