    We can’t ignore America. First help came from America in 1947 when Quaid e Azam Jinnah asked for help. We got somuch Aid and weapons for free. We must open NATO supply route immediately.

    @Farhan Khan: Both these sentences will just be a hollow remark. Until we stop being India centric for everything we will continue making mistakes and world will continue ignoring us, least just avoid us. Our life revolves around what happens in India. We have made it a part of our DNA to just hate India and Hindus. We have become breed with highest intolerance in the world. Intolerance towards other religions, Intolerance towards India, intolerance towards any punishment met by muslims in non mulsims world, intolerance towards non muslim worlds which demands muslim to follow uniform law of the country. We love to blame evrybody else and treat ourselves as people with no flaw. Every single Pakistani gets a rude shock when the step out of their country. They get to see how world looks upon them and how much lies we are constantly fed by our institutions, whether it is educational, religious, political, all of these institutions just lie to us. The are just aggressively passing their hatred towards others, especially India to new generations.

    Pak papers had been crowing for weeks about this meeting on the sidelines of the Korean Nuclear meeting. I guess walking down a hallway together with the President of the United States is honor enough Recommend
