    PAKISTAN !!!!

    THANK YOU …. THANK YOU…. THANK YOU!!!!
    FOR MAKING USA SAFE FOR MAKING THE WORLD SAFE>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Since Sep 11, 2001, over 200,000 Pakistani civilians, armed forces personnel have either sacrificed their lives or wounded; more than 3.5 million have been displaced while the country has lost over
    US $ 1 Trillion due to terrorism.

    Despite sacrifices, Pakistan was still engaged in 'the war for world peace”.

    No other country has even come close to selflessly sacrificing so much.

    Pakistan, no one can ever repay you enough for your contributions.
    You deserve a permanent seat in the UN Security Council for your contributions to world peace and emergence of a new world order. We welcome your rise as the new regional military power. God Speed.

      Cut it out, Amit. Unless you're a total idiot, you should know better than that!!! Pakistan is no more than a puppet state for the right-wing thugs in Washington waiting to carry out their orders in exchange for more foreign aid. Pakistan is getting ripe for a Communist Revolution!!!

    Mumbai and Chennai are the illegal cricket gambling capitals of the world. Cash Flows from these operations are being siphoned off by the Indian government to finance terrorists globally, particularly in the region. This off the book financing is also being used, in the case of sales of illegal booze, to finance terrorism. This way the indians are able to dodge the american financial radar.The american congressional politicians have been alerted to the double game Indians are playing

    All roads to terrorism lead to India and RAW its brutal and clandestine agency.
    We cannot be sending aid to India anymore nor exporting American and European jobs to India. We need to take care of our own now. We need to provide jobs to our youth and unemployed, shelter our homeless and food to our hungry.

    Droning these Hindu extremists, the successors to Al Qaeda, is the need of the day before they attack us and it is too late.

    ten years of war in Afghanistan, but our guys in Washington are still clueless when comes to name one enemy.

    AL QAEDA, TALIBAN, HAQQANI NETWORK IN PAKISTAN, SHADOWY ISI OF PAKISTAN, PAKISTANI CORRUPT GENERALS, GOVERNMENT, MULLAHS, FAKE HUMANITARIAN PAKISTANI ORGANIZATIONS, ALL ARE MILKING US TAXPAYERS AND DOING NOTHING. IT IS DISGUSTING.

    Maybe if we stop letting our (US) reporters (60 minutes) to ride around in vehicles with Taliban leaders in downtown Centre City Kabul and broadcast it on nationwide television and get to the hard point of what we are there for, they should of targeted the vehicle and blew it to kingdom come, no matter if there was a reporter in the vehicle or not. this was wrong for 60minutes to do this and worse for the US military to allow it, just shows that the Taliban come and go as they please in the capital of Kabul and how corrupt the Afghan government is. Obama needs to Ball up and let the Generals on the ground to do there jobs and not be a bunch of pu-ses go in the room and tell Karzi to sit down and shut up, and tell him what were going to do, ESP. After pumping 10 trillion into a corrupt country and getting nothing back except for filled body bags.

      Such is to be expected from someone like you with your obvious limitations, Rotboy. You sound like another war loving Tea Partier. Instead, what we need to do is to just pull out like the Russians did back in 1989. Unfortunately, the politicians in Washington don't seem to have enough sense to do that since this obscene war is so "politically corrrect".
