@Lobe: Every time Pakistan is asked something about a double standard the topic just gets changed to India, the US and Afghanistan. Another would be using their exaggerated history and/or the force fed lies about everyone outside their border as means to jump up on the high horse while ignoring the thoughts of the "inferior." My personal favorite is when they start using a completely ill-conceived outlook on their relationship with China as an aphrodisiac.
