I don't understand why India doesn't just go into Pakistan and get the terrorists. It's very obvious that Pakistan could care less. The whole world knows Pakistan harbors terrorists, trains them, and supports them.

India has every right to attack Pakistan, as USA did after 9/11.

Yeah, pretty much. Besides, who would India have to blame for their horrendous domestic situation without THE GREAT ISLAMIC DEVIL PAKISTAN?

China?

India is afraid of China. I think we're going to see a similar situation of America and Iran developing, with open "hostility" and a mutual understanding of sabre rattling but no more.

What the h-e-double hockey sticks are you talking about??

Pakistan is responsible for how many terrorists acts in that region? Not just India, they also allow terrorists to plan, train and attack in Iraq Afghanistan, and other nations.

Pakistan Musharraf refused to go after the terror camps for fear of being overthrown by the populace who support terrorism.

There will instead be a highly politically and (for a select few) economically profitable detente for the next few years. The Cold War, writ small.

That's funny. Especially that one word per line thing. Funny but wrong. Pakistan has a few nukes, India has more. India will perform a military strike against a limited number of targets, Pakistan will whine, India will feel better and you - Mr One word per line - will quietly change your login to something else.

India's attack would swift and quick. Pakistan would not use their nukes cause (1) they have a small arsenal, not nearly enough to cause "end of times" scenario, (2) they would never risk using it unless it plans on fighting off the rest of the world, (3) by the time they even got a chance to use it India could wipe the smirk of their hateful-faces.

The First: Pakistan Musharraf refused to go after the terror camps for fear of being overthrown by the populace who support terrorism.

Actually, Musharraf did make an abortive attempt to clear the tribal areas of militants in 2006, which ultimately dwindled due to distractions caused by political problems the General had largely stoked himself (most notably, his feud with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Iftikhar Chaudhry).

The new administration, meanwhile, has launched a military operation of its own starting roughly in July of this year, which continues to this day.


Pakistan is responsible for how many terrorists acts in that region? Not just India, they also allow terrorists to plan, train and attack in Iraq Afghanistan, and other nations.


The assertion that "Pakistan" is "responsible" for terrorism that originates in parts of the country that the state doesn't entirely control makes little sense. It's roughly the equivalent of saying that "America" was responsible for the OKC bombing.

Not saying that Pakistan IS supporting terrorism, but they do pitch a tantrum every time the US enters their borders to attack terrorists/insurgents, yet have been unwilling or unable to do anything about the problem themselves. Some of our more right-wing farkers might consider that harboring terrorists.

Dances-With-Lobster: Not saying that Pakistan IS supporting terrorism, but they do pitch a tantrum every time the US enters their borders to attack terrorists/insurgents, yet have been unwilling or unable to do anything about the problem themselves. Some of our more right-wing farkers might consider that harboring terrorists.

Two flaws with that kind of reasoning:

1) Pakistan is currently fighting the Taliban in the tribal areas, and has been for a while now. During the original operation during Musharraf's presidency, then Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz pointed out that (at that time) Pakistan had 80,000 troops in a region that was about one twentieth the size of Afghanistan. Troop levels and the intensity of military action has varied since then but at no point did the country stop fighting the terrorists.

2) The overwhelming majority of casualties of "terrorism" acts originating in Pakistan are Pakistanis. Of course, it doesn't make global news unless some sort of international incident occurs, like the Mumbai tragedy, so people don't really hear of Pakistani military casualties, police stations and government facilities being bombed and civilians being targeted by suicide bombers. Here's the latest incident: Bomb blast kills child in Swat.

Of course, one could still argue (like I do all the time) that the Pakistani authorities aren't doing enough to combat terrorism, and that it's quite silly for them to complain when someone else steps in to clean up areas that they don't control to begin with. Accusing Pakistan of "harboring terrorists" or "supporting terrorism", on the other hand, is simplistic and ignorant.

You're an idiot Biological Ali,
if you can still pretend to assert that Pakistan as a state hasn't supported terrorism. Is their spy agency, the ISI, not part of the 'state'? Did they not use this bullshiat tactic as a proxy to try to take their little biatchiness out against their much larger, much more advanced, and clearly much better off neighbor? Pakistan is a whiny little biatch of a country. To say now that those same elements that they created and fostered are no longer completely under their control doesn't now allow them to say that they're not sponsoring terrorism. To be qualified for that, they need to actively root out the terrorists.

Pakistan needs to close it's leg, we can smell the vagina from here.

Well, a lot depends on what you mean by 'supported terrorism'. It is true that the Pakistani state supported and worked closely with the Afghani Taliban, but it's also true that these were once the 'good guys', supported by the US as well. These kinds of ties are a tad difficult to sever when the area in question lies just beyond a virtually nonexistent border, as opposed to oceans and continents apart. This is but one of the many not-so desirable consequences of Afghanistan having been left a failed state once the 'Evil Empire' was driven out.

As for whether the ISI is an instrument of the state, that's open to dispute. They seem most of all to be a rogue agency with an agenda that seems significantly disconnected from 'state' interests and the interests of civilian governments in particular.

Some Pakistani politicians have railed at what they claimed was the ISI's failure to answer to the government - or even to the army command.

...

"It is a state within a state," says Wajid Shamsul Hasan, a former Pakistani High Commissioner in Britain who is close to former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.


And its 'terrorist ties' are largely a by-product of the Cold War's twilight:

Critics of the shadowy Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), believed to have worked closely with the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, say it is a "rogue agency" - functioning as an "invisible government".

Since the 11 September suicide attacks in the United States, Pakistan's President, Pervez Musharraf, has forced the ISI into an abrupt U-turn on Afghanistan - purging its leadership along the way.

...

"You can't develop ties over 10 or 15 years and then cut them off instantly," says Steven Cohen of the Brookings Institution - a Washington think-tank.

"It's a big bureacracy and changing its direction will take a while, Mr Cohen said, but added that "Musharraf has done a pretty good job on switching policy on Afghanistan."

And as for 'proxy' conflicts between Pakistan and India, even a cursory examination of the regional conflict will reveal that it has been quite mutual and reciprocal. It takes a special kind of single-minded partisanship to see that as one country trying to "take their little biatchiness out against their much larger, much more advanced, and clearly much better off neighbor".

Ultimately, the situation there is more complex than you'd like it to be. That said, if you you insist on reducing complicated, multi-dimensional issues into bumper-sticker slogans, at least try and come up with something better than:


Pakistan needs to close it's leg, we can smell the vagina from here.

And Hell, don't take my word for it:


"I think there is no doubt that Pakistan has taken some positive steps," spokeswoman Dana Perino said.

But [Condoleeza Rice] quickly added that she believed Pakistan was no longer involved with [Lashkar-e-Tayaba]. "Pakistan is a different place now with a civilian government and an army leadership that is working in concert to try to bring an end to extremism within Pakistan," she said.

"We have to remember that Pakistan itself has been suffering at the hands of extremism. So whatever the history here - and there is a history - the important thing is that Pakistan act against those who used Pakistani soil to perpetrate attacks."

You mean like stating the obvious about how Pakistanis have no claim to Kashmir just because it is a majority-muslim state, and how that seems to be the basis of tension between the two countries? I mean, I know you Mohammadans have difficultly realizing anything other than the medieval, regressive, and Arab imperialist monolith that masquerades as religion [Islam] which enslaves you all and encompasses every facet of your lives, but surely you have to be able to understand the concept of a State that is devoid of religion as the main basis of its identity? Of course the genius Jinnah and his ilk didn't care about all that; they just wanted to carve an Islamic Paradise from the sub-continent where Muslims could live in peace and harmony with everyone esle [as they do the whole world over, right?].

Doesn't really matter I guess, the Modus Operandi is always the same with you cretins. Invade whole areas and just wipe out any prior semblances of previous cultures/languages/religions etc, until hey presto, it's magical Islamic land from Turkey to Lebanon to Indonesia and even to the wonderful paradise of Pakistan. I mean, the holiest places of other religions don't really concern Mohammadans now do they. Buddhist statues in my Islamic state? Blow them the f*&^ up! Hindus daring to practice their religion in India? Better go on a murderous rampage at a Hindu Temple and shoot some people up like the recent mumbai shootings. And I suppose that the fact that Kashmir historically is very important to Hindus and Buddhists doesn't really matter when it comes to the frequently touted and world famous religion of peace! Who cares about the past when Islam is here now and has always been there, right?

For FSM's sake you Mohammadans really need to get off this Ummah bullshiat.

Racist? As an Indian myself I fail to see how it is "racist" to bring up valid points about such a failed state as Pakistan and pretty much all the fellow sub-continentals who live in that shiathole. And uneducated? Please, if it were up to your fellow countrymen, education around the world would only consist of rocking back and forth on the ground reading the Quran all day. And I think I pretty much summed up the conflict between Pakistan and India (read: Muslims and Hindus) in a relevant matter, but then I guess you Pakistanis are pretty good at saying this or that is "off topic". I suppose discussing and trying to figure out what the hell is going on in your shiathole of country is "off topic" too.

And yeah right, if you were an atheist as you claim to be, you would despise your country and countrymen as much as I or any other sane individuals do, so please, stop with the charade and just admit it already that you come from an illegitimate and absolutely failed state.

You know, sparring with you was an amusing distraction at first, but now it's just depressing to realize how pathetic one must be to actually believe the things you say.
