@f US can waste $1 trillion in Iraq and hundreds of billions in Afghanistan, it can send some dollars to Pakistan as well.

-There is one thing that no one can take from an indsividual even if poor—self respect. Please have some. 60 yrs since birth and still begging. Buddy, there is not money plant forest in US.

@At least in Pakistan’s case it is getting valuable cooperation in war on terror,

-Really! Siphoning off the money to Taliban and Pakistani Punjabi terrorists to trouble Kashmiris and Indians and spending money on planes but not buying night vision goggles from opem market in Peshawar. The world is watching you very closely now.

@a war Americans themselves helped create by promoting and funding Afghan jihad of the 1990’s”
-If you had spine you could have said BIG NO, rather than helping them for $$$$$$$. Go read history–it was not 1990s.

Similarly if the Indians had not supported the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and then later different factions of Mujahideen forces, there would be much less problems today.

If US can waste $1 trillion in Iraq and hundreds of billions in Afghanistan, it can send some dollars to Pakistan as well. At least in Pakistan’s case it is getting valuable cooperation in war on terror, a war Americans themselves helped create by promoting and funding Afghan jihad of the 1990’s

Finally to the fellow from Sweden who is maligning Pakistan Army, go to hell.

It is a country that lives in a part of the world where China, Russia and India were the neighborhood bullies.

With the rise of Al Qaeda and the tit for tat response of “take no prisoners” by the US, the whole neighborhood has gone bully whack.

Pakistan has been outflanked in its efforts to boost the Taliban and the Indian strategy has borne fruit with its allies aspiring to control Afghanistan.

The frontier province was always a no man’s land. Pakistan’s control consisted on having the tribal chiefs on her side. This could continue as long as Pakistan was the toughest kid on the bloc. The tribal chiefs have
taken on the Americans and no longer need to bow to Pakistan or anyone else. They now believe that they control their own destiny and Pakistan is nothing but a pet of the US.

While the US has announced billions in aid, it will go to waste. US Aid is channeled through consultants and corrupt politicians and by the time it gets to the target, its worth is no more than that of that piece of shrapnel that started as a million dollar cruise missile and now lies in between the blown out limbs of the unsuspecting as they slept in their two dollar mud
house.

Pakistan’s civil movement holds promise but it must not be directed not at fighting a battle that, by its continuation, will destroy the country. Its
energy must be channeled into efforts towards building a civil and just society in Pakistan.

The best that the US can do is not to send billions into Pakistan but by leaving Pakistan and letting Pakistanis and the frontier men run their own lives. The US and Pakistani bombing of the tribal areas destroys the
village where these fearless frontier men have dwelled for hundreds of years. Having lost their homes these proud angry mountain men, whose pride demands that every death be avenged, are descending to the valleys and
cities of Pakistan and exacting revenge. How can you convince them that it is wrong to brazenly kill innocent civilians when they themselves have witnessed the wholesale deaths of their innocent family members by unseen (cowardly) drones?

The people of Afghanistan did not consider the US its enemy, Al Qaeda did. By attacking an entire swath of Afghanistan, the US now has made an entire population its enemy and turned ordinary Afghanis (and now frontier
Pakistanis) into Taliban.

Pakistan is at war, our heroes are dying unsung. We want an end to this senseless war, so do those in America, Canada. With every single soldier lost, justify to their family that they died to protect freedom. People like Suleman Maniya are casuing insults.

-Umair, I understand that. It is given soldiers are doing the job they are given. But are those soldiers not dying bec, of the short-term and long-term flawed policies of Pakistani Army/ISI/civil govt. Same thing as in Iraq war, US solidiers did the job they were given but Bush’s strategy was wrong. Since Zardari is not in control of Army, it is the Army who has to take the blame. In India, it will be the Indian politicians who will be blamed under such conditions. It is ur call, but I suggest if u care about soldiers life, u will Qn the army generals who decide.

Pakistan has been at war with India ever since 1947. Unless you call it “peace time.” War by itself is senseless. So tell your jihadi brothers to drop their arms and go do farming. Yours are not the only soldiers dying. Every country has lost its soldiers. And you guys conveniently disowned your soldiers at Kargil, whom our soldiers buried with respect. Telling the truth does not become an insult.

Your this drastic move of no eventual consequence against Suleman Maniya Goteborg Sweden is undoing LongMarch and raising questions on the real intent of Pakistan to move towards democracy where freedom of expression with a reason is allowed.

Obsession about RAW?
And now who is obsessed.
