Your inflated opinion of India leads you to continually make crazy claims.

India still gets foreign aid, and has been among the largest recepients of foreign aid throughout its history.

India also gets loans from international institutions like World Bank.

India also got the bulk of its weaponry and technology from the Soviet Union, by being a client state of it.

Of course an Indian won some Oscars, which I don’t see as any connection to politics or statehood.

I would rather have an inflated opinion of myself than bend over for the Taliban.

Pakistan is a PROUD BEGGER:
IMF: money (twice).
USA: military aid.
China: everything for friendship..aaaahhhh how sweet.

Do you acually PAY for any of this?

I will show you how inflated I am:

India +3 Oscars.
Paksistan -1 Swat.

Indians have an inflated opinion of themselves, leading them to make foolish claims such “india follows good neighborliness”! Indeed thats what India was doing when it sponsored separatism in East Pakistan and Sri Lanka and supported Baloch warlords in West Pakistan.

The Pakistan Army has been fighting militants for a long time. Just because you refuse to acknowledge their sacrifices and contributions, doesn’t mean there are none.

Your other points about Indian greatness are laughable. If India is really so great why are you bothering yourself writing about Pakistan every day ?

Goto Youtube and look at “60minutes”interview with Zardari.

You dumb uneducated Paks just don’t get it. The taliban is not America’s war, it is Pakistan’s war.

I don’t see a single Pak standing up for their country against the taliban.

Fools sit by idly as they waste their time blaming India for everything.

Global Watcher: I would not have been interested in Oscar for this movie since it is produced and directed by Brits. But the fact that 2 Indians won 3 Oscars now makes me proud. Congratulations to AR Rehman for 2 oscars (for best score and best song) and 1 oscar for Resul Pookutty for Sound mixing.

In the eyes of the world, India has upped Pakistan millions of time over. It is time you quit living in denial, in your gated community in Lahore behind your computer doing tough nuke talk against India.

India has:

-IT leadership of the world, go to Silicon Valley, in US, not many Paks there
-Global Grade Military
-Huge Exports
-Bollywood Industry
-Inclusive, secular, plural, rule of law, democracy
-Equal rights for all (whether they use that for themselves is an entirely diff matter)
-World class Research and Technology development centers
-Brain power to the U.S. and the world
-Excellent food, now popularized in the Western Countries

Umair,

the list goes on, Pakistan is not really worthy of being mentioned on the same list, perhaps on a much lower list, which only Pakistani’s read.

OH…by the way, India’s Slumdog Millionaire won 8 Oscars Last Night…I don’t believe Pakistan even has a real film industry or world reknown actors….

Umair, feel free to rot and fester in your own ignorance, while the rest of the world leaves you behind.

It is the most abundant in oil and gas along with other minerals.

—Umair, I agree Baluchistan has Chinese-built Gwadar port and other natural resources and that’s the Pak interest. But not the people giving rise to increasing discontent among Baluchs.

@ Baluch will love Indian support”
-well, only if Pakistan will allow. Indira Gandhi is dead and East Pakistan is Bangladesh. A nuclear Pakistan will simply blow the crap out of anyone trying to destabilize Baluchistan. while India’s resume is filled with lot of dirty jobs it did in East Pakistan and Sri Lanka, it will never find itself in good standing.

-Umair, you are seriously disconnected from the world. India’s status is the pride of Indian and envy of many in the world. This is What the world says about Indi. We don;t have to self-certify. India follows the rules of good neighbourliness, and reacts and shows its might proportionate to the dangers whenever presented. India is uninterested anyways in destblizing Baluch or other place in Pakistan. Former PM Inder K. Gujral shut down RAW’s counteroffensive branch in 199? on moral basis. For argument sake, there is only so much Pakistan can do against baluch once they are turned on. It is hillarious that you talk about NUKES everother sentence! NUKES cannot help you on your own land otherwise Swat would not be under Taliban.

They are all deceptive liars who hide actions which they approve from one another in order to get what THEY want … heaven forbid one does what he feels right regardless of the outcome and effect it has on others. ALL GUTLESS PIGS – and ours even wears lipstick after his cigarette! WHAT A JOKE
