    I just do not understand all the hate. Why would Pakistan and India want to destroy each other? They share a long and glorious history, cuisine, music, and language. Is it just religion? Is it the army leaders? Both countries are important to the US and to the world. Why not just transfer all of that negative energy into creating something positive that will benefit the people of both countries? I do think that more Pakistanis than Indians hate the US, especially since we keep shooting drones into their country. But they do allow people on their territiry to plot violence against the US. If they stop that, I think things will calm down quite a bit. Let us hope for a peaceful future for us all.

    Jhanziab you have no idea how poor your muslim nation is. There are even more poor muslims in India. India has more muslims then pakistan. And guess what they all think they are better than paksitan.. Hell then chant it. Feed our poor, control your terrorist religious fanatics and then see who is really hurting. India has always prevailed and will continue to. Indians have strenght and resolve. We do not need financial support from America. Oh wait you owed money to inida for actually creating the poor country, and now you take money from a country that you believe corrupts your people, Double Standard much. keep on being the irrelevant nation of fools. Good night and good luck

    istan need to keep terrorism alive as its integral to islam. thats the fact. nobody talks abt the elephant in the room or may be its politically incorrect! usa doesnt have to worry really, they have a much deeper problem at home. us born islamic nut bags. india will have a perpetual problem in istan as its a state formed based on religion! not a secular state, but one based on a desert religion. there are people there to be exploited in the name of their "jesus"! 😉

    It is good to hear that Musharaff is enteing into politics. Mushraff is a great leader, he is a winner. Seriously that man is really a great leader. Pakistani Army only has one objective. That is to see India is wiped out from map. Pakistan will always be economically rich and great nation.

    Jhanziab How many people actually visit pakistan. Right no one not even paksitanis becuae they are afraid they will die. India has culture, history and intellect. We are not a nation of people guided by islamic militant law. At least we know this for a fact. By the way jealous of pakistan, really, think about it who were the aggressors in all of the wars, and why did they start. Right pakis wanted something, but couldn't get it becuase cowardice runs strongly in their people. I mean people that get up in arms of a drawing of the prophet. In this country there was a bear, and pakistan shut down facebook and youtube. Again indicating controlling dominating cowardice that manipulates people. And if Indians drink cow pee, (i guess all the muslims living there must to, because there are more muslims in Inida then pakistan that believe India is better than pakistan) it sure would taste better then your water which is filled with American money used to hurt its own countrymen and women, and target fellow muslims. PATHETIC GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK

    Musharraf is coming to Hay on Wye literature fest in 2 weeks for talks and questions.Will be interesting to see his views on post musharraf Pakistan.He is a very divisive charater, what does he think he can offer pakistan though really, he is tainted with political troubles and was at the helm as pakistan slipped further into chaos.From what i know of him and his supporters and opponents i dont think pakistan needs anymore divisions but unity to help get it back on its feet.However his standing in the pakistani army and ISI maybe the leverage if he still has influence to rout out those whom are supporting the very people their democracy is fighting.If he really truly means to help Pakistan and reign in the extremists anti indian elements of the military and their supporters then im all for his return but he has too much baggage, but then again most Pakistani politicians do also.Control the army , defeat internal threats secure a peace with the Tribal areas to keep out foreign fighters and then distance themselves from the US , not because they dont share common goals but also in Pakistan the US carries baggage.Complicated situation but their is much to be hopefull about.

    nas Kashmir was filled with Kashmiri Pandits and muslims loyal to India. Just because you think you know something really speak. Terrorism was started there by Indians or coward pakis. To this day. I mean i vist often, and everytime there is a bombing, or an attack and low and behold a coward with a gun shooting at unarmed men and women. I have seen it with my own eyes. You call that heroic. I rejoice everytime they kill one and drag his body through the street and show it on citi cable (terrorists that is). These people are horrible humans. Do you have commentary on that? The good part of Kashmir still wants to be with Inida or some ask for independence. No one wants to be with Pakistan an unstable nation with terrorism against its own people.
