    @krm1007 – Spot on. Pakistan's novel innovation, the water tanker explosion technology, gives it an edge over almost all other countries. I said "almost" because it is not known at this time if Pakistan has aready developed the underpants explosion technology yet. But I wouldn't be surprised if Pakistan demonstrates its underpants technology on xmas.

    @saywhat - Wow! That is amazing. Water Tanker Explosion Technology, and then Underpants Explosion Technology... Where does it end? We have a new technological arms race here. Those Americans, Israelis and Russians must be dumbfounded at the progress these Islamic countries are making under the leadership of Pakistan.

    Pakistan is facing the consequences of its own wrong deeds. It is facing a Civil war like situation today. Once it had used its terrorists to lounch attacks in india. Thousands of Indians died in past due to pakistan sponsored terrorism.
