US or Europe?Who will provide aid? What are Pakistanis thinking?- Posted by AndyAndy: Pakistanis will get expensive toys using the money fron the West for the purpose of screwing the West–I see no one else.In any case, India unwittingly is burning Pakistanis really bad because of Pakistani perception of equalling India. Regarding India, Pakistan got to admit as the saying goes “bigger man swings the bigger …..”. They will have to put all these toys in garage sale for their survival.

MMS and other Indian leaders know very well what Pakistan is. I don’t see much in the statement in Sharm-Al-Seikh….Pakistan will continue breed jihadi terrorists…whatever way they bluff, shout etc. etc….It (bluff, islam, jihad) is foundation of Pakistan and in turn will keep destroying their internal society…. US will keep on attacking Pakistan with missiles….I feel, India should wait for couple of more decades and then sell Kashmir to the promoter of Pakistan, Saudi Arabia…They are owner of Pakistan and I am sure, they will sponsor this deal….and in the mean time Pakistan will fully turn into arab clone…

Former President Musharraf said that India and Pakistan were close to resolve disputes during the backchannel peace talks”Pakistan thinks India is a Lamb state because Indian leaders have been giving too much room to pakistan for too long time. After 1971 Indians should not have given breathing space to Pakistan. If Indians had a little hawkish attitude, Pakistanis could never have made nuclear bomb and threaten the world today. Anyways it better to be called Lamb State than Terrorist State or Failed state.As I said already, Pakistanis pick tit bits of information and statements, and try NOT to see the bigger picture. Sorry buddy, but Mushy’s comments are not even bought in Pakistan these days, Do you want us to believe them ??Funny thing is when fate comes into picture, even LIONS like Musharraf become LAMBS and try to hide here and there. Soon he will be exiled permanently to Saudi Arab and live peacefully (not) there, remembering his glorious past and ugly future of Pakistan. While Manmohan has proved that “SINGH IS KING” and two times in a row.

The sentence always finishes that back channel talks were going fine until Mushy got trapped in internal political trouble of pakistan.Read Steve Coll and refresh your memory that Mushy got trapped in political death spiral disrupting the peace process.http://www.newamerica.net/public ations/articles/2009/back_channel_11191″ By early 2007, the back-channel talks on Kashmir had become “so advanced that we’d come to semicolons,” Kasuri recalled. A senior Indian official who was involved agreed. “It was huge–I think it would have changed the basic nature of the problem,” he told me. “You would have then had the freedom to remake Indo-Pakistani relations.” Aziz and Lambah were negotiating the details for a visit to Pakistan by the Indian Prime Minister during which, they hoped, the principles underlying the Kashmir agreement would be announced and talks aimed at implementation would be inaugurated. One quarrel, over a waterway known as Sir Creek, would be formally settled.”….. In the spring of 2007, a military aide in Musharraf ’s office contacted a senior civilian official to ask how politicians, the media, and the public might react. “We think we’re close to a deal,” Musharraf ’s aide said, as this official recalled it. “Do you think we can sell it?”Regrettably, the time did not look ripe, this official recalled answering. In early March, Musharraf had invoked his near-dictatorial powers to fire the chief justice of the country’s highest court. That decision set off rock-tossing protests by lawyers and political activists. The General’s popularity seemed to be eroding by the day; he had seized power in a coup in 1999, and had enjoyed public support for several years, but now he was approaching “the point where he couldn’t sell himself,” the official remembers saying, never mind a surprise peace agreement with India.”So much for secure Pakistan.@Indian governments are always shaky coalitions, no agreement on anything no progress. Nothing seems to change in India, same old red tape.—Your worry should be limited to bilateral talks not Indian redtapism. That never came in way as is clear from the above article.

To go to war with Pakistan and unite your Pak Army with ALL the LeT, JuD groups and Taliban together after the Mumbai attacks and plunge the whole region into a nulear war?Our leaders do makes decisions, but can YOU tell me who is ‘exactly’ incharge of Pakistan? When Zardari states ANYTHING the Pak Army do not like he is forced into rebuttal.You have no leaders with backbone. Zardari went to Europe to get trade deals, but ended up returning to Pakistan with aid for IDPs. Hilary Clinton visits India and signs an arms and nuclear deal.Your ISI co-ordinated the suicide bombing of the Indian Embassy in Kabul. Yet, in Egypt, your smiling Giliani presents M. Singh with a dossier of RAW activities in Baluchistan in full glare of the international media. We have not heard much of this dossier ever since, except for Obama’s AfPak guy, R. Holbrooke to dismiss the RAW dossier as NOT credible evidence.Oh by the way, best of luck in Istanbul with the next BEGGING round of Friends Of Pakistan to get $2.5bn.

A pity. There is no partner for Pakistan and the Kashmiris to solve problems, just an insecure country called India.- Posted by Aamir AliWow, a Pakistani questioning India’s democracy & calling it ‘insecure’. Quite hilarious, indeed!
