Since India is hostile to Pakistan and sponsors terrorism inside the country, it is logical for the security agencies of Pakistan to focus on India.

Its not the job of security agencies to run economies or conduct foreign affairs.

The US had a golden chance in 2001 to take out the very root of terrorism – Pakistan and its sinister mechanism consisting of its military, intelligence, nuclear scientists, and madrasas. They remained ignorant and got fooled by the wily Musharraf. He managed to hide the ISI’s involvement up to its neck inside Afghanistan as a part of the bargain. 800 Pakistani soldiers were air lifted from inside Afghanistan and then bombing the place restarted. A part of the ISI building went on fire “suddenly.” I can bet they hurriedly burnt up all evidences of ISI link with the Afghan Taliban and Al Qaeda up to their necks. I still do not understand why they made any deal with Pakistan at all. Their CIA knew who was behind the whole thing. I guess that idiot Bush was so obsessed with Iraq that he looked at the 9/11 aftermath as a drag to his plans. His action showed reluctance. Suddenly they stopped the chase in Afghanistan and turned their full attention on Iraq. Whatever Bush accused of Iraq, is in Pakistan – WMDs, dictatorships, terrorism, Al Qaeda, Taliban you name it. And they are dancing with Pakistan. And Pakistan is allowed to continue with its nefarious terrorist activities inside India as a bargain. Look at the news today. Spring has started. Pakiatani troops started their shelling across the LoC. Within 24 hours, the Indian troops are battling insurgents inside Kashmir. IPL is forced out of India due to the insecurity caused by Pakistan based terrorists. They are even trying to attack our democratic elections. India should get back with the US and its allies and tell them that beyond a certain time limit, we will have to get involved directly and if it invokes a nuclear war, so be it. It is time something concrete is done.

“Reforming a criminal state, controlled by a criminal military/intelligence network is a terribly wasted effort. Direct war with Hitler liberated the world from Nazis. Direct war with Islamic terrorism in its heartland is the right way to do it. It is time an international alliance is made to go after it. Otherwise Obama will be sucked right into it. He has enough domestic issues to keep him awake all night. The last thing he wants is a rogue state that is bilking his country and the problem does not seem to show any signs of going away. Even the people of Pakistan are beginning to support their criminal state.”

Sometimes, I think the same thing, the U.S. should just start indiscriminately wiping out all Pak Army and ISI trained Jihadi-Proxy Army “Strategic” assets, and do it indiscriminately, without warning, without permission, without apologies. Sometimes I think the world has had enough, these Paki’s keep asking for money, while the terrorism structure remains unaffected. The world will come to reap Pakistan one day for its treachery and lies.

We have to remember that there is only 1-2weeks of fuel in Pakistan for the Army, they cannot run a sustained war campaign for too long, as most of their machines will eventually have empty fuel tanks.

The question, will the world start acting and using some force, once the next 911 happens? It shouldn’t have to come to that.

In one hand, Pakistan has a nuke in the other hand, a near empty begging bowl, is it just me, or is it actually the WORLD, that has Pakistan by the b$lls?

Just think how much more leverage can be applied to denuclearize Pakistan.

Food for nukes sounds like a good program to me. Feed the poor for nukes. A price per nuke should be negotiated, and the cash from these proceeds can be used to stimulate Pakistan’s economy.

Umair, please save your precious, sycophantic words for the diplomatic cocktail party circuit. What you have written nothing, but a self-congratulatory rant. The realities in the ground are quite different. Pakistan may be (in your words) a responsible member of international community. However, what has it TRULY been responsible for? Pakistan has time and time again denied and distanced itself from any form of responsibilities. Pakistan only admits to its wrong doings if it knows it will get something in return.

Example 1:
The surviving Mumbai attacker is Pakistani. Pakistan denies and denies and denies. Finally, it admits it to get into the USA’s good books for future aid.

Example 2:
Pakistan promised the Sri Lankan cricketers presendential security, but none was given.

Example 3:
Zardari vowed that the Lahore attackers will be caught with “Iron Hands”. However, to this day none have been caught.

Yes they do, every criminal enemy of Pakistan will be crushed. People of Pakistan love their country and will always look after its interests. Criminals like you with criminal mentality must know that Pakistan is a responsible member of international community, highest number of Pakistan Army troops serve in UN peacekeeping missions across the world, Pkaistan is a major Non-Nato US Ally (MNNA), WTO member, UN member, SAARC member and Commonwealth member with good standing.
Next time show your criminality somewhere, your failed smear campaign is getting nowhere.

The various comments here show how obsessed Pakistanis are about India and imaginative threats from India ?

To us in India, development of India and its people are our priority , tomorrow, Tata Motors, India’s largest auto company is launching world’s cheapest car at USD 2000, a great moment of pride for every Indian in the world , for achieving this feat , accomplished by thousands of Indian engineers .

Good idea .. stay focused on India. Let the economy go down the toilet, let army surrender to Taliban and AQ everywhere, let US bomb every week and bring in bigger drones and let US put another 30K soldiers.

Who cares about Pakistan.. it’s non-state. Just stay focused on India. Wish I had your wisdom!
