      And Matt, just to set the record straight, I'm the one that slips the jokes in here. Like :

      What do you call a man with no arms or legs lying in front of a door ? Matt.

      @bobcat, Well, mat is something we wipe our dirty shoes on but then you touch it with your forehead five times a day. It's so obvious from that dark forehead prayer bump on Chrissy (you) and Banasy (you). Your charade ain't working. Get over it, move on.

    Nobody in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has claimed responsibility for killing Shiites or any other minorities yet. However, Pakistanis are always quick to blame someone else outside Pakistan for their own human rights abuses including genocide of minorities. Some action needs to be taken by the western world – in terms of strict sanctions on Pakistanis or sending peace keeping force to Pakistan. Atrocities in Pakistan continue to escalate without any actions to mitigate.

    Pakistanis attacked the mourners returning from the funeral of Shiites with gunfire and killed some more. The one sided attack on minorities by Pakistanis continues on. Attacking the mourners marks a new low for even these murderous Sunni Pakistanis.
