US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Pakistan will face “dire consequences” if it fails to contain terrorists operating from its soil.
(Read more: Work harder to 'squeeze Haqqanis, Clinton tells Pakistan)
Clinton made this statement in an interview with Bloomberg News two days after she visited Islamabad, adding that Pakistan requires help from the US and Afghanistan to battle militancy.
She added that the US administration does not want Pakistan to overtly launch an military offensive against the banned outfits and forces that attack US and Afghan forces, but carry out clandestine actions.
There are “different ways of fighting besides overt military action,” she said.
Clinton said that she urged Pakistan to share intelligence with the US forces station in Afghanistan to foil attacks and block supply routes.
She also said that better synchronization might curtail incidents like the attack on the American Embassy in Kabul for which the US blamed the Haqqani network.
Clinton commended Pakistan’s recent cooperation and said:
Because of intelligence sharing and mutual cooperation, we have targeted three of the top al Qaeda operatives since bin Laden’s death. That could not have happened without Pakistani cooperation.
Clinton said that the assailants that are targeting US and Afghan might break violence in Pakistan as well.
She also said that Pakistan could also benefit from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces based in neighbouring Afghanistan while the 130,000 troop is there before 2014, when US would have pulled out troops and the security control will be handed over to Afghan government.

@Arbab M. Waseem: Dear Sir, we all know that it was the creation of USA.They were smart to draw Pakistan in this. But what purpose it will serve to face the reality to day. The fact is today you have snakes in your back yard. Who brought them, we all know, but how to get rid of these snakes is our problem and we must face it. The answer is to stop selective support of snakes - kill them all otherwise these will bite all of us.
@Rafi Ka Deewana: You are absolutely right. India is your country and we wish you well in your homeland. After all why should we think about the Muslims of India. They are not the only Muslims in the world. We the Pakistanis should not feel concerned even if Narinder Modi kills another few thousands of your creed or if some of you face the police brutalities on fake charges or the Indian Government lets loose its state terrorism against the people of Kashmir or if some Muslim Kashmiri women are raped by the Indian security forces. Like wise your no one to advise us on fighting the terrorism or blaming us for double gaming. You have a mind set thoroughly poluted with Anti Pakistan propaganda. The fact which people should know is that there was no terrorism in Pakistan before the US invasion of Afghanistan and before the unholy nexus between the Tajik minority set up in Kabul and the Indian Intelligence had flourished under the sponsorship of US. By the US definition you may consider Taliban as terrorists but they are actually fighting for the liberation of their country. On the other hand Pakistan has experienced Terrorism originating from Afghanistan. We have successfully fought the terrorism we know how to fight terrorism, much better than anyone else would know. By the way tell me any country related to the Afghan conflict which is not shamelessly involved in double gaming. Every country has the right to defend its national interests and Pakistan should not be expected to be an exception.
hey U all guys......U really want to make this world peaceful....if YES then ask ur governments and ur people not to get involve in internal affairs of a country.....Change ur foreign policy of creating proxies, allies against enemies and make this world a better place to live for us, for our future generations. I wish this could have happened :-(((
@VINOD: bro go back to 80's and U will understand who created this mess who financed that mess and who didnt takre any remdial measures. its all clear, its simple only for those who wish to understand
Who ever is serving the American causes is an ally or strategic asset, and once the purpose has been accomplished, its terrorist since then. Not long, when we are gonna be declared a terrorist state officially by US.
Hariharmani : Your comments lack sense. Who claimed superiority of India over Pakistan. Who claimed India is a the most peaceful land in the world. Every country big or small has its own problems and deals with it in its own way some times slow and some times fast. Things get very murky when it spills over the neighbourhood, and then the neighbour comes over and yells at you. This is what is happening due to the terrorists between India and Pakistan, That is precisely why I wrote in my original comment that hopefully Pakistan contains terrorism. They have lost a lot due to terrorism Indeed, I also know that they will gain more than Indians do, if terrorism is contained. But Indians have also been losing due to this factor. To say this fact, being said by everyone in the world over, is not talking down on Pakistan. It is a hope. No other country suffers due to naxalism or the contained terrorism in Assam and Nagaland. Therefore it is purely an Indian problem and is being dealt in our own way.
let your threat happens then.. who will suffer, we will see
Look, this is the bottom line, (You've got some nuclear weapon which the world don't feel safe about them in your position...) Give up the weapon or face distruction!
@Rafi Ka Deewana: Right. No other country has done more to bring a bad name to the "Ummah" than Pakistan. By openly fomenting terrorism, it has given Islam a bad name. In our neighborhood, we have Muslims all around us and we share our food on Hindu and Muslim festivities without any notion of belonging to different ideologies. Pakistan needs to do more.
Commonsense : You are again off the mark. I never said how to handle terrorism. My 2 points were 1. Contain terrorism, whichever way you deem fit. It is true irrespective of who says it. 2. Dont treat India as your enemy which it is not.
As simple as that,
And for your knowledge of insurgents in India, let me update you a bit. Once Myanmar and Bangladesh turned over the culprits of ULFA, the violence in Assam and Tripura have died down. For your info, they have surrendered all their arms and their leaders are negotiating with Indian govt. Naxalites were never handled thru Indian army. Indian army is only in the borders. Only the police are handling them. Being pathetically equipped and empowered, they are always at the receiving end from the naxals. Still there is raging argument to use air power against them. But no one has agreed to for that idea. We are still trying to negotiate with them.
@Muhammad: Your enemies are not India but thinking such as this and the Islamists. These have kept you backward for too long. Wake up and mend your ways or you will continue to stay backward.
Misleading title. She means dire consequences from the militants, not from the US. The militants are as big a threat to Pakistan as they are to Afghanistan, & no one knows that better than the Pakistani Establishment.
@beware: Are you sure or you are just dreaming?lolzz..we guys love to fancy ourselves with nice thoughts..which are far from reality.. Its high time we self analyse us as mentioned by Hasan nisar , asghar khan etc

It saddens me very much when some seemingly good people get rackeled by some thoughtless trolling,(I did not really know untill very recently,the term trolling).I assure you when we keep our doors and windows of our mind and heart open,more good things will happen,that has been the natrual law,believe me when I say,the mind must be discriminating enough to filter garbage out.Do not put barriers,walls and censors,a society as well as every person should be fearless,"Kya,rekha(LAKIR OF HAND) our batho sey math kha gaye?'Did you lose to fate and mere talk defeated you?,it does not sound as well as it sounds in urdu.But I guess you guys do get it.I was unaware of this "tribune Express,I'm glad I did though 69 years late.PLEASE Don't ask people, some misuse their privllege,not to use this blogg,yes some are beyond the pale,but life does come in all hue and color.Wise neither grieve nor rejoice,they stay tranquil..Change yourself,what you want in others.Thank you,HM,njusa

false title shame on you ET. Hillary has not said any thing new or the way you tried to show.
@Khan: US has not been able to win in Iraq because removal of Saddam was not the main aim of their invasion. The Nur ul Maliki's Government, which is the US creation, is no longer willing to tolerate the US troops on its soil because of their growing ties with Iran. Once the US troops finally leave Iraq, it will be a pro Iran country and not a pro US country. From that point of view Saddam perhaps would have been a better choice. At least he was a bitterly anti Iran ruler of Iraq.
In Afghanistan again the US has failed because after fighting the longest war of their history they are no where near their final objective. They have neither been able to eliminate terrorism nor they have been able to finish the Taliban. Realizing the serious limitations of their military might they are now running around to bring the Taliban on negotiations table. The US is very keen to get to some kind of settlement with the Taliban because they know that the moment they pull out from Afghanistan, the minority Government of Kabul will not be able to hold on to the onslaught of Taliban. Today Taliban are not the rulers of Afghanistan but they are a reality which the US has failed to subdue.
Pakistan need to sort out haqqanis and likes, US need to get out of the region.
Pakistan will face dire consequences, says Clinton and all the commenters are jumping around saying US can't do anything to their mighty country. It is better to heed that warning ....you ignore it at your own peril....
God forbid, if one more terrorist attack happens with a Pak footprint....
Many of you won't have Internet connection then to protest the consequences that will follow....
Dear Sasu Maan! You better use your Tax Payers money in the right direction, so that you may have some control on the other side of the border.
Mother-in-law complains when she is in washington....lol
bravo.... aunty no 1... better dont put your nose in our internal matters... did you people ever imagine that what you trying to do with this world... we make atomic bomb..we trying to become powerful. what is your problem? did we ever interfere in your internal matters? you simply blaming blaming blaming... have sense please..this is not stone age..wake up aunty...be modernized and civilized.
@rehmat: We're also glad that you didn't come over to Pakistan during partition. Please stay in India and continue trolling Pakistani websites like your other Indian brethren every day. It gives us some spicy comedy and fun.

Mother in law.......may be we terminate marriage contract if you push so hard
@Beware i am quite curious why pakistanis are so much obsessed by brotherhood concept. even if they are rejected by other muslim nations, pakistanis just try to behave TOO BROTHERLY. simply annoys me. literally beyond my sense. a fitting reply by INDIAN MUSLIM.
@bollywood hates america @bollywood @Beware
india and bollywood was behind shahrukh khan because he is a proud indian. indians consider brotherhood on national level and NOT on RELIGION. hammer this in your head.
For those who think Clinton is wrong - what word(s) would you use to describe the consequences of your failure to don't control terrorism? You may not like Clinton but "dire" seems like an appropriate word to me.
You guys just don't know how to listen unless it matches the imaginary image of the world outside your borders. All sides have non-negotiable requirements that conflict. Anyone in reality will tell you that preaching talks and peace is at best a public image change. That alone does not change the reality of the circumstances no matter how much you want to believe otherwise. It's not about being a warmonger to talk against such things. It's to say dodging the reality of the situation is just going to get more people killed. Because in a situation with one wanting peace and the other being quite determined to subjugate that person speaking of peace it turns into something like this... Peaceful person = victim Person with the gun = morale booster with license to brag Of course the US still has a firm stance on doing more than leaving it in the hands of talks. That's because they aren't fools that have had their head in the sand for 10 years but are still reasonable enough to let themselves be surprised by a change of heart from the other side even if signs point to it being impossible. Even that, in this situation, requires an abstract view of the impossible only being impossible until the first time someone has made it possible. Sorry to say though, Pakistan will not, with their views, ever be that person. The way they deal with situations is never something permanent for the better. It's just whatever it takes to make them look a little better than horrible for a few weeks. There's just not anything for the US to lose to let Pakistan try. But, there is something to lose by letting Pakistan try and not being ready for it to fail.
@M A Sidiqui, Mother in Law its a good one man hahahahahahha i laugh and laugh and laughed....
Interesting how folks are calling Clinton/US as mother-in-law!! Makes one wonder who the wife is - Taliban...Al Queda? with whom Pakistan fell in love with and the US facilitated the marriage. Now the question for the two is 'Who will tame the shrew?'
Interesting turn of events...
As Pakistanis, we should stop dreaming and learn from our past. US and West is no one's friend. look what they did to Pak during 80 when Russians left, look they did to Iraq, Egypt, Libya. They use you for their interest and move forward. We should have a sincere dialogue with India, no cheating and proxies. I strongly believe, with all my sincerity, that we are the same people, we look the same, speak the same, eat the same, dress the same way. things have changed in the past 10/15 years, we should follow Indian model and do something for our future.
@vasan Let me also try to be more friendly. Its so charitable of you to put aside your problems and come over here to advise us. As per your request let me try to be more relevant, your advice is coming from a country that has lost not one but TWO prime ministers due to TWO different insurgencies. Please don't tell us what to do, we are doing our job and our military is fighting the militants, but as one can see from the past decade of no progress in Afghanistan military strategy is not the best solution in the long term. If it really was, then why hasn't your army succeeded in permanently destroying the Naxalites, Assamese and other such insurgencies which have been fighting you for decades and also cost you soldiers and civillian lives. Unless your trying to tell me that your army is fighting and supporting these insurgencies, you will agree with the gist of what I am saying. So for your own sake don't throw rocks from glasshouses, and save your advice for your own politicians who badly need them.
Why not US mind her own biz :D
The harpy. It is always the tigress that kills.
yeah right, what are you going to do to Pakistan, China is not lending you any money to attack Pakistan..... US is broke and the empty threats are not working anymore....
Mother in law trying yo be father now.
I agree, innocent Pakistani has faced and suffered at the hands of Taliban and the terrorist because the Govt and the Army failed to contain these ruthless people. If not contained it wil only become worse. imagine if these people get their hands on the nuclear button. We and our children will never get to see tomorrow.
Is it Henry Kissinger from the seventies talking?
@VINOD: These snakes are been tamed & sent by our enemy (India). It is as simple as that.
@Indian Muslim: "Who has allowed you to speak on behalf on Indian Muslims? We do not wish to have anything to do with this. We made this clear during partition when we chose to stay back. Hope that’s loud and clear."
Perfect reply. I don't understand why the Pakistanis can't just get rid of this infatuation with this muslim brotherhood concept. Open your eyes while on ground and see which country is willing to invite (mostly harmless) ordinary Pakistanis on its soil.
Pakistan has to realize that the terrorists are no good and must get rid of them. If it truly wanted to do so, it could have achieved it easily in the last 10 years when the US and the whole world was willing to support the cause. Now, no one believes in what Pakistan says. The other countries (muslim countries included) are so sick of its attitude and double talk that even humanitarian aid is hard to get.
@Arbab M. Waseem: What is wrong in saying "Pakistan will face “dire consequences” if it fails to contain terrorists operating from its soil. Not from any outsider but from it’s selective support to terror. If you have snakes in your backyard you can not expect these snakes will bite only your neighbor.” Why these simple words are not being understood and why there is such negative reaction ???

Are you talking about America/Europe or Pakistan?Anybody wants to bet this anonymous is an Indian? I will bet on Moody downgrading the rating for America again.
@Khan I guess for your sake I should change my user name from YeaRight to DreamOn so to make thing easier for you to understand.You need to expand your reading of current affairs beyond State Department by reading a REAL newspaper. That would tell you a) Both Iraqi and American newspapers and politicians, claiming that US had no choice but to pullout after Iraq refuwed to grant extension b) maybe if you read Foreign Policy and Foreign Affairs, respected american journals which claim, that the US attack in Iraq strengthened both Sunni and Shia millitants like Moqtada Sadr and former Baathists joined Sunni millitant outfits c)In summary I guess the 110000 dead Iraqi civillians for you are a sign of progress and US victory. Also please tell me which barbarians did they remove in Afghanistan? The ones which continue to control 90 percent of Afghanistan, a percentage which btw was not revealed to me in my dreams but published in an AMERICAN newspaper Washington Post : http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/checkpoint-washington/post/afghanistan-a-nightmare-battlefield/2011/10/06/gIQA7YrlQL_blog.html Unless for you 90 percent of Afghanistan controlled by Taliban is definition of victory please go read a real newspaper and come up with proper arguments. OBL maybe dead but Taliban are not.
USA is very clever, they said to PAK do action against militants we will pay your all army expanses and after some years they stopped giving money to PAK by saying PAK is doing nothing against militants n PAK army made enemy these tribal ppl so USA want internal war between PAK with tribal ppl so PAK Govt. put their knees down infront of USA n then wht ever they want they can get from PAK. they have done same thing in lybia give money n weapons to Alqaida(rebels) and use them against gadaffi now they can easily get GOLD n OIL from lybia and use it. in whole world USA is doing wars making hates between countries by making misunderstanding.simply they r destroying other countries economy by war........we all countries should not accept what USA is saying, make solutions of our problems on our own by talk on table. NO ONE CAN MAKE PEACE BY USING GUNS...
@vasan Cant you live one day without coming over to ET and telling us what to do? I guess it just shows who is more obsessed with the animosity. Do you see pak readers flooding TOI with trolling comments. You need to focus on our own internal affairs and the fact that while your mocking us, Kashmir is quietly simmering and near a boiling point. With daily stories of mass graves, rapes by Indian soldiers, and indiscriminate arrests, your government is being forced to reconsider AFSPA if it still wants to hold on to Kashmir. Remember the protests of summer of 2009 - the one which made your government panic? Yea those were carried out by the ordianary Kashmiris and not millitants. So stop behaving like sacred cows and clean your house first. America has threatened both Iran and Pakistan under the same breadth. It is trying to table a monetary bill against China and has no control over Afghanistan. Seriously you guys are naive to align your stars with the Americans when it is clear it has no friends in the region. Get out your fantasyland and preferably troll on your own newspapers.
somebody said bollywood muslims will be with pakistan ..lol ... as if they are policy makers !! and even if they support pakistan, how does that help ?
No sane person will argue with an insane person endlessly.
That's the real face after removing the mask. May be she is preparing us for the worst to come not by all of a sudden but gradually. In the mean time that left for us we must get united more than ever we were.We must start trying to live on our own means.Again i will say that there are more Islamic countries in Asia and are living with self respect.We must not forget and shut our eyes on reality that in Americas more than 20 percent industries that only make deadly weapons,one deadly weapon is called "SANCTIONS".
@beware: "america whole indian muslims whole bollywood is with pakistan. all muslims countries with china and russia will attack you.even sikhs with pakistan"
Extreme utopia! Do you really believe what you are saying? Russia and China are dependent on USA and Russia has recently given them right of the way to transport their equipment to Uzbekistan on route to Afghanistan. One more thing.... Clinton has not threatened Pakistan this time. She just said what every sane person has been saying that unless we tackle Terrorism in our country we will face dire consequences internally in the long run.
@america help: You will get justice and respect when you will stop playing "thali ka baigun" role.Is that your bird brain that stretches not more than biharis ,sikhs and hindus. shame on you .living in Mother India 's warm lap children like you always want more. beyond your capacity to hold.stop bringing sordid things like you said, again on this table.
@YeaRight: I would repeat your username here ... YEARIGHT, in Iraq they removed Saddam's govt .. removed all his Baathist's from every post ... dismantled his Army and full government .. and then captured President of Iraq Saddam who ruled it for few decades and then hanged him at will. In Afghanistan, they removed those barbarians, who were running without even wearing their shoes to take refuge in our country then, and they got OBL and all of their main targets .. But some people still say they have lost? If they have lost in Iraq then why is Saddam Hussein not the President of Iraq? If they have lost in Afghanistan Who's government is in Afghanistan at the moment? Is OBL still hiding in Kabul along with Omer & Co or Is it Karzai's govt. Please enlighten me as to what is winning in your mind? capturing another country forever ? No my friend no one has ever that in the history of mankind. Its called objectives achieved.
@Muhammad: Even if these friends have killed 10 times our forces and civilians combined compared to our casualties in all the wars. Even if our sworn enemies have not deliberately targeted civilian population centres and proudly owned those attacks? Even if a war finishes in a few weeks one way or the other but we are made to bleed perpetualy by our internal enemies?
btw she didn't even say that in the interview, way to go ET
Use of threatening language against Pakistan has been a regular feature of US strategy to pressurize Pakistan, particularly during the last 5 years. But the reason due to which the US has not gone beyond hurling threats is that US knows its own limitations. The stark reality which is understood by the policy makers in US is that the execution of threat of dire consequences for Pakistan will ultimately end up in dire consequences for United States.
This kind of behavior is typical of hillary in her courtesy visits. As soon as she returns home, she shows her true, cruel saasu maa colours. But jokes and pleasantries aside, we are in this war for the long haul.
@Khurram Mansoor: Bro, She isn't threatening ... She doesn't mean we will suffer because of US but she is predicting If we don't contain these terrorist they are going to get more stronger and will fight back and attack us in our own cities ... Have you guys not read a few days ago what Mullah Fazullah said? Then If we don't uproot these people from those areas where we don't have any single police station or government schools etc, are they not going to be safe there and recruit more people against us ? Please ask your self a single question Can you travel to Darra Adam Khel which lies just outside Peshawar between Kohat and Peshawar .. Can you travel to all these Tribal areas locally called ilaqa ghair? I am from Peshawar myself and I could never feel safe of going to these areas. Please do think before your write as it seems you are commenting without knowing meaning of a sentence.
Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan does not like America, according to an interview he gave recently to the The Times (of London not the Mumbai rag Times of India).
@beware: In your dreams?
beware is right
Shahrukh Khan’s dislike of America prompted by American foreign policy and its impact on Muslims?
But Muslims are treated no better in Shahrukh Khan’s own country India.
Of the thousand people who lost their lives in the Gujarat riots of 2002, the majority were Muslims. Most of the Muslims were literally butchered to death.
In its bold expose, Tehelka blamed the Gujarat administration headed by Narendra Modi as well as the state police for the massacre of many Muslims.
Does Shahrukh Khan have the courage to challenge Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to a debate on the wholesale massacre of the Muslims? Probably not.
@ali: You can close your ears but you can not close their mind that they have made it. Seems like they are directly warn you to be clean and close all terrorism camps and stop exporting terrorism.
It is indeed in the interest of Pakistan people that Pakistan government cut down their endless powers of army and let like all civilized countries, army should be under political power.
China is just using pakistan again India and USA. Smart people should not be puppet of others. Buring our own home, how can you burn others?
Pakistan should consider USA's warning and act as they said. OR they can attack on Pakistan anytime. You are stupid if you think they are gonna ask your permission to attack on terrorists under your territory.
When did Haqqanis become terrorists? It seems now even fighting foreign forces is terrorism
@Arbab M. Waseem: Yes, you guys are just so important and clean that we'd kill our own soldiers to frame you. Get over yourselves. I've never once ever gotten an answer to the question "what could any country possibly want from Pakistan that they don't already have and of better quality?"
Well, to be realistic, I am not expecting Pakistan to give up people they have protected so well for 10 long years. Pakistan will do what it will do. US will get out of Afghanistan, well, most of it will and will blame Pakistan. Dont be surprised if US and NATO will come out to say that Pakistan is the reason they lost the war.
After 2014, Pakistan will lose all the leverage it has against the sole Super Power in the World. US will impose economic sanctions and will make sure that apart from China no institution or Country will give Pakistan Aid, including Saudi Arabia.
I haven't seen anything to suggest this will not happen, as yet.
Why r u so coward to say all that infront of us...during your meeting with Pakistani officials...??simply because u know u will get one back on your face...
Hilary is Hilarious!!!! The moment she gets back she returns to her own. I wonder if Mr. Karzai was actually inciting America to attack Pakistan when he declared that he shall stand by Pakistan in the event of a War! Can you please clear if we are a Friend or enemy... cuz this is really confusing!
Obama needs a skirmish with Pakistan to get a better rating; Isuppose what we can do is merely to save our skin and nothing else we are merely ranting and ranting about our power to face the US and it is with the US supplied F-16, US trained armed forces and US supplied amunition how naive are we like Qaddafi
India is supporting these banned terror outfits along with Mossad and USA. Then they claim we are playing double game. Haqqanis should be used against thesebanned terror groups
Salamun Alaikum brothers, America will say one thing & do another thing, pretend that you have heard it. The entire world knows us administration are zionist puppets, instead of lecturing my brothers in Pakistan go tame israel and freeze the illegal settlements if you can. Maybe then you will get some and I say some respect for your words.
@Beware - Who has allowed you to speak on behalf on Indian Muslims? We do not wish to have anything to do with this. We made this clear during partition when we chose to stay back. Hope that's loud and clear.
USA Congress is ruled from AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee). Besides hundreds of renowned USA politicians like Bush, H. Clinton is a member of this Jew organisation as well.
Ya right what ever
Isolate Pakistan in the International Community, Outstretch the Military in it's own territory, Overburden the Economy, Reduce the population of Pakistan, Cripple Business Activity in Pakistan, Fuel social and ethnic tension, Arm the masses all without a single "boot on the ground"
The US desperately wants to pull out its troops from Afghanistan so that it can deploy them elsewhere; on the new warfronts that could be Iran and Pakistan. It has already announced full pullout from Iraq, its now preparing for Afghanistan and they will do this by handing the trouble over to Pakistan
She will despatch Bill Clinton to Pakistan. Then pakistan will be destroyed. Then you might need steel burqas.
they tell us to contain what they themselves have not been able to do in just over ten years now, despite being a super power.......ha ha they make us crack!
Look for us,, this look strange that she looks changed.... But "o" my Dear Brother Allah (S.W.A) has said in the Quran you can't trust these people. this is nothing new.. we are just deaf and blind.. why don't we wake up...
Look at it another way. She could be giving us sound advice and not threatning us at all.
Most of the world is going nuts and have failed to make one simple truth sink in the mind of all in Pakistan that " Pakistan will face “dire consequences” if it fails to contain terrorists operating from its soil. Not from any outsider but from it's selective support to terror. If you have snakes in your backyard you can not expect these snakes will bite only your neighbor." Why these simple words are not being understood and why there is such negative reaction
sikhs children dont feel safe,even biharis children can play freely in delhi
when will sikhs get justice
It's not a THREAT. It's a WARNING.
What she's saying is that if Pakistan does not contain the terrorists, Pakistan faces dire consequences from the terrorists and not from USA.
For those who say "You changed your tone after going back"...i don't think so. Within the closed doors, this was exactly the message delivered to Hina Rabbani and Gen. Kiyani.
American Policy "Dialogue & Squeeze".....she was here for Dialogue & now she is squeezing
@beware: and where did you get that wild imagination from...
Typical comments from USA...no one is listening. you have been defeated so plz admit it stop using Pakistan as a scapegoat.
I think now she is adapting the same language which Pakistanis have been talking for quite a long. War and keep killing people is never the solution of any problem. Thats what Pakistan realized quite long ago and US has come to realize it now.
@vasan: yes we have to realise that our enemy is india not these freedom fighters......
These remarks are contrary to what Hallary says, will Uncle Sam stop policing the world around, friend once quoted "take the dollar out of the good old US of A and you are left with GARBAGE", better if they concentrate on their dollar.
Miss Mother-In-Law, we expected nothing better from you and your relatives. But understanding the consquences we have decided not take part in your effort for "Demo-cracy", "War on Terror", "Reconstruction". We're sorry but we cant play out part for such "human" acts no more.
Aweseme...As expected..You changed your tone after going back...Is that for Obama election comparign or seriously...because now you know you cannot breath without Pakistan.
