Or particpants were to speculate and imagine about what went on in the 20th century?

“India need not have to keep agonizing about anyone breaking Pakistan away. India is still a political concept. Culturally India is a chaos. Linguistically a disaster. It should not have been a country at all. This is another cancer the British left for the world to endure never ending pain. India still needs to be broken into at least 10 different countries or maybe more.”

–>That was an extremely ignorant and foolish comment. India is chaotic, but it functions and does it mostly well. Have you tried driving in Delhi without getting in a car accident? Well most people there do and to do that requires extremely skill and mental acuity, of which India has in abundance. Most westerners are too overwhelmed and trying to figure out what appears to be chaos, is actually a multi-level, complex orchestration of democracy, a productive society, which is inclusive, secular and plural, with rule of law and the largest democracy in the world.

If you hate India and indians so much, feel free to get rid of your PC computer, as the USB connections on your PC, were designed by an Indian…Sun Microsystems,…an Indian…I can keep going on here, but you may feel overwhelmed at how much Indians have contributed(U.S. Cruise Missiles), quietly, steadily and humbly to growth and progress in all sectors of the western world in the smallest and largest things that you enjoy on a daily basis. Also, India is the largest supplier of quality brain power to the U.S. Military, U.S. Health, and High Tech sector. Indians enjoy a high level of respect in the U.S., Canada and any where they go, as they are educated, friendly, work hard, respectful others and assimilate well in any type of society or environment.

Indian people, like the Chinese persevered the brutal treatment by the Colonialists. The late colonial Lord Macaulay reported back to his masters in the UK, whose intent was to destroy India and genocide many Indians, he simply replied back to his royal masters, that Indians, are an extremely sophisticated people with depth, intelligence, spiritual and human moral development and they cannot ever be broken. Please acquaint yourself with history and please learn some manners. I forgive your ignorance.

“Actually Pakistan is a failed state being propped up by international aid.I think it is time for:

1.Balochistan to be completely independant.
2.Pashtoon lands given to afghanistan with peshwar.
3.Sindh and Punjab to form a loose confederation with substantial autonomy to Sindh
4.Kashmir to be merged with India with the punjabis to be deported to Punjab.

Then there will be peace and prosperity in the region.

–>This should be brokered by a UN resolution to also include complete denuclearization and demilitarization and bring the money and lost potential back into the pockets of the average Pakistani. Pakistan should be allowed to keep its statehood, if it surrenderst he nukes and demilitarizes to lower levels. It is much cheaper for the U.S. to do this, than keep on giving billions of dollars of AID and IMF money, and the Paks just keep blowing it on more weapons, maintaining proxy armies and terrorism camps against India and the world and also putting dollars it into their pocket and maintaining enmity and agression against India.

It almost seems, that Pakistan is just itching and die-ing to start a war at any cost with India, the pace at which they are stockpiling nukes and all types of weapons despite the fact that their own people are thirsty and starving and the country is in economic shambles.

If the U.S. does not discipline and school Pakistan now, it will not be able the control the level of terrorism that will one day emanate from Pakistan, unto the world.

Thanks for correcting me . People of Pakistan chose a corrupt and bankrupt leadership who survived on an imaginary threat from India . Now where it ends up: Pakistan is a failed state, and India is a bubbling democracy, economic powerhouse.

I would love to see how Zardari and Giliani deal with Pakistani Taliban’s new leader: Hakimullah Mehsud. The man who staged the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team and bomboing of hotels in Pakistan.

Not just Pakistan. India had Indira Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi, who would have destroyed the country, had they continued any longer. And there were(are) many local chieftains who can blend into an Afghan war lord attire with minimal adjustment. The US has had some very bad leaders – Nixon, GW Bush for example. In the case of Pakistan, bad leadership coincided with global events that changed their focus on short term gains versus long term implications. And the India-centric mindset added more to it. I think Pakistanis are realizing this now and I can see a change in their attitude. The survey run to elect their worst leader itself is a sign of that change. Attitudes can destroy societies. Leaders emerge from people and if the public mindset is not progressive, then the leaders will reflect that attitude. Pakistanis should realize that India really is not their enemy and focus on themselves. That way, their leaders will stay focused on national progress on all fronts. They need to look at their superiority complex and work on trying to eliminate it. It is this underlying complex that has led them to their current state. They have let external forces exploit this superiority complex in them and this can lead to their utter destruction. Their infrastructure can still breed bad and dangerous leaders who would look at their self interests. There is nothing in the system to check them and their actions. I’d say their military itself is made up of bad leadership that has worked constantly for its own survival and maintain its grip on power. It is their military that has kept the anti-India flame alive all these years to improve its hold on power. Pakistan will have good leaders emerge only if they can clip the wings of their military and keep it confined to the barracks. And time is running out for them.
