I want to show some frectures in india to indians who think that their country is shining. Just go and visit ASSAM where u fing a hoisted flag of PAKISTAN. Just go and analyse the rebellion of KHALISTAN where SIKH r ready to fight against indian ARMY but muted due to the lacking of weapons. Just go and analyse the NAXALITE REBELLION is burning. Just go and visit GUJRAT where thousands of MUSLIMS r ready to take revenge of MUSLIMS GENOCIDE by extremist hindus. Incredible india is on a edge of collapse and going to incredibly break, but biassed American and British Media in not highlighting these issues but the truth can never be hide.

If such nation is sending trained and armed militants to create terror, what should India be doing? The approach should be many fold, like blocking the infiltration (which is difficult), secondly, should strengthen the internal police setup, thirdly, should attack the training camps covertly. Attack is the best defence. The terror war venue should not be in India but should be in Pakistan! Our Indian political leaders were never good in diplomacy, its time that the political leadership takes tough decisions in these matters to resolve quickly, rather than prolong and try to pass on the issue to next leader!!!

Besides, most of these points are gibberish.

But I don’t think the military is quite there yet. When Zardari offers a no first use nuclear policy, he is forced to retract his statement. When he offers to place the ISI under the Ministry of the Interior, he is forced to retract his statement. Clearly, he is not in the driver’s seat when it comes to foreign policy. And from those retractions, it’s clear that the Generals behind the throne are not quite willing to make any concessions to move negotiations forward.However, I believe the fact that Pakistan is rather quickly going to the dogs (sorry to my Pakistani friends, but that’s what it looks like from the outside), is likely to bring about a slow change in mindset. I really do think that the Generals are starting to understand that the ‘thousand cuts’ strategy has failed, and worse, it’s alienating the very people they purportedly seek to liberate. The growing economic disparity between India and Pakistan is surely bound to be a big concern. If it comes to blows again, it is doubtful that Pakistan will be able to recover and the economic challenges that follow any India-Pakistan conflict could very well destroy the federation. Unfortunately for Pakistan, short of employing nuclear weapons, there is nothing they could do that would halt India’s economic rise to a point of threatening its unity. Among the Pakistani officials I’ve met, I do believe that realization is setting in. The problem I believe is that they don’t know how to turn the ship around.How are they supposed to sell peace with India (that will most certainly not include a return of Jammu and Kashmir) to a Pakistani public that has largely been raised and rallied on anti-India sentiments? And how can they protect the Army (the only truly effective institution in the country) without having a supposedly existential threat that they need the Army to guard against?For this reason, I believe that peace will come slow. Pakistan will largely determine the pace of the rapprochement, not India. Only as Pakistani institutions are built up and the population focused on Pakistan’s own economic rise will the conflict de-escalate and peace be made possible. Sharm-el-sheikh is one of the first steps on a very, very long road.

Sorry being blunt, but that is the sheer truth of it all. The manufacture of those ordinances alone is a topic all its own that should be addressed here in these blogs, but is not being entertained at all.

They were brainwashed that its all Indias brainchild and Bangladeshis and Paks were separated against their will.Time to bring in a fresh angle to the stale IndoPak bickering going on here.Especially now Hasinas administration is planning to start a commission on war crimes and Pak is doing everything to stop it.

However, it is not just LeT, JuD or any other terrorist organization hiding in a futile fashion under a charity banner that Pakistan has on its soil. We must not forget Jundallah.The talks in Egypt will be nothing more than the routine ‘hand shakes and smiles’ for the cameras.
