    Peace for south Asia

    Can there be another war between India and Pakistan?

    Answer:
    Only the exalted and evil minded think of war as possibility.Especially,when there are plenty of nukes in the arsenals of south Asia, war must remain the option out.There is imperative need to mitigate the spoilers that are afloat all the time to do the spoils.

    The whole world is in big mess right now and more mighty are showing biggerr bellicosy to corner, constrict and constrain the weaker ones through threats and through vicious and malicious propaganda.

    Besides there is deep freeze economic recession world wide and it is even on the verge of slipping into 1930's type depression which was rid off by only world war 2 and loss of 100-150 million military and civilian people world wide.President Franklin D Roosevelt FDR tried every way,but only the big war saved the world from finanacial annihilation.

    War hysteria or even war threats and dangers have picked up world wide.Energy in-security is haunting the mankind and it is precarious even for America and Europe that consume two thirds of world's oil and gas.Any disruption of that energy security can plunge not only India and Pakistan, but the whole world into war.Pakistan and india will skip the wider war if both countries behave better than the rest of the world.

    America and Europe and America in particular can and will induce peace in south Asia.Even India and Pakistan government and military, despite the bellicose threats, did a fairly responsible job of keeping peace.The only way to sustain inertia of peace and mitigate the bellicose or real threats will come through keeping of cool minds.

    America's president Obama appears to be rustling his feathers on some sort of Kashmir dispute resolution. After all America is the world's leading boss even if every strong one has its hands tied.Smaller countries,if get destabilized, can be corrected and re-stabilized by the big ones.If America gets destabilized, the world will finish itself through dog eat dog culture.

    Peace in Pakistan and India will have sustainability if the strongest ones are stable.America and Europe have to sustain their energy security when the resources are limited in both oil and gas.China and India and most of the rest of the world will have to constrain on energy usages as there is not much around.The black and brown races have to follow the noble lead of the world's white and yellow races on population control and even population contaction as the world does not have the energy resources. Energy is the single most critical factor that can plunge the whole world into WW3. Even Obama's approach is not realistically correct to find ways other than fossil fuels for energy security.

    So, there are lots of ambiguities, uncertainties and dangers in the whole world.

    In India Pakistan case, peace can be maintained if no side is driven to the wall and if no one gets on hard to break up the other country.

    If yes, what will be the repercussions?

    Answer:
    To say yes to war and then there is certain and sure follow up of nuclear war, which will be total, complete and resolute destruction of south Asia.there will be the blast annihilations and then radiation annihilations to finally finish off both.India will be recipient of both Pak nkes and its own nukes radiation due to wind flow pattern as it was analyzed by the Americans in 1998 nuclear tests of both India and Pakistan. Bangladesh will go too of radiation damage.

    There will be nothing beyond yes, and nuke war will kiss good by to south Asia.I honestly believe that Paks are very less bellicose in aggravating it into the Armageddon.

    there is some serious work underway to undo the things that interpose as spoilers and they exist on both sides.Samjhota express tragedy complicity did prove that India is not an angel and things will have to be corrected overall and everywhere.Do not forget that south Asia is on the confluence of mighty ones interests and much of the problems arise from strategic location and one single un-resolved Kashmir issue.Let us hope and see what Obama does about it as he is emphatically talking of some sort of resolute input into the lingering issue.

    If no, what is the solution?
    Speak out please!!

    Answer:
    The only other option will involve too much give in by one side instead of give and take game plan.and that will be decided by how the rest of the mighty's struggle shapes up around or even in south Asia.Again, loss of energy security by the west as it happened briefly before first gulf war in 1990 and led to 9/11 and second gulf war and the birth of America helping Jehadis that even senior Bush and his America and others admired in Afghan war.Rehabilitation of all those would have solved the problems.

    But now, prevailing of cool minds and stopping of hate is the only remedy.Pakistan news media is more impartial as you can read even unfair anti Pak stuff here.You go to Indian papers and find it in opposite.

    No War

    Why do we worry about the war between India and Pakistan? The most important needs for Pakistan are to contain the terrorists. Maulana Fazalullah has served summons to 47 prominent persons of the NWFP, including serving and ex-ministers, MNAs and MPAs, nazims and councillors to appear in his court. I think Pakistani army should start using low grade nuclear weapons against Maulana Fazalullah and his team.

    Obama has enough in his pocket to work for next 4 years such as fixing economy, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq. He conveniently avoided India and Kashmir on his interview with Al Arabiya TV.

    Hell with oil and strategic location. America is depending on Pakistan NOW, only because of the land locked situation of Afghanistan (That's the strategic location of Pakistan) and the bad relation with Iran.
    We Canadians are in a process of free trade agreement with India, Including nuclear trade. Our Minister of International Trade honorable Stockell Day was New Delhi for discussions and is expected to conclude the nuclear deal and free trade agreement in next few months. We all see India as a potential, stable and growing nation. Mr. Obama has the same view on India. In other hand Mr. Biden has clearly indicated that the surgical strike on Pakistan to continue and could attack inside Pakistan if proven evidences are available. The United States withheld $55 million under its reimbursement programme for expenses incurred by Pakistan on the war on terror after US auditors raised objections.
    Lieutenant General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, the director of ISI has actually admitted in the media that Indians are cleverer. He admitted that India is not a threat. Even president Zardari admitted that India is not a threat. The sacked Pakistani National Security Adviser (NSA) Mehmood Ali Durrani, has said India is not a threat.
    Given above scenario, I can probably assume that India won't initiate a war and it's all on Pakistan to decide were there will be wars or not.

    From crisis to opportunities

    They say that for each crisis, there is an opportunity and the Paks too can ready themselves for those opportunities that will kiss Pak people feet.

    The problem now is that the whole world is going through multitudes of crisis and with hands tied in state of powerlessness.

    The recent surge in Indo Pak problems have arisen from global lines of actions that embroiled Paks and the problems were further compounded by not just lack of goodwill from india, but also by the indian voraciusly intimidating propaganda and intelligence work in un-successful bid to dis-member Pak.

    The acid test came to test pak resolute few weeks ago and Paks did a wonderful job of manouvering through the crisis.Do not forget that hords of Indian spies with support from their agencies are madly contemplating to dis-member Pakistan.

    But the situation of Pak vis a vis India and the equation of strategic events around Pakistan does not interpose a bad picture.Nothing is easy when there are war clouds around and the world's mightiest have chosen Pakistan as the chess board to play their global military interests and challenges.There are dangers and Paks have done reasonably well to mitigate them.

    The world's bosses have conveyed their Pak friendly stand on Kashmir through British foreign secretary David Milband, who took no pains to link 26/11 to Kashmir problem resolution.this irked india, but the west remained consistent in supporting the just cause which put America and the Paks on same page as far as Kashmir resolution is concerned.

    Despite all the rhetoric on the indian side, the per capita economy of Pak-india is bracketed in the same threshold of 1000 dollars per capita(3000 dollars ppp per capita)PY.Seven times more populous India is proportionally just seven times bigger in total economy.

    The very auspiciously grand things happening for Paks are peace and economy related.Canada, Germany, Australia, US,China and many other countries are showing will to invest in Pakistan's second grandest coal deposits in the world(will be the largest by 2030).Pakistan coal consists of all three major type-thermal, metallurgical and for coal to gasoline process modes.The energy value of this coal is bigger than combined oil and gas reserves of any country, and China as a enthusiastic customer is talking of taking at least billion tons a year.Imagine how big is the worth of this Pak coal is as such:

    1.Paks can generate 350 billion megawatts of power, which is 70 years of America's power generation,170 years of china's power generation or 700 years of india's total power generation.

    2. Or you can provide coke to hundreds of billion tons of steel making and the world's total capacity of steel making is 1 billion tons a year.

    3. or you can facilitate the future wave or the current developmental stage of this future wave of converting coal into gasoline.One ton of Pak coal can be converted into 2 barrels of gasoline and so Paks have coal to make 400 billion barrels of gasoline by SUSOL process. That is the combined oil reserves of Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq.

    If they develope Pak coal to the tune of 1 billion tons a year in various process modes to generate power, make steel and convert to gasoline, Paks can get a boost of 200 billion dollars a year in the economy and live three times richer than the Indians on per capita bases.Heck,with half as much economy compared to seven times as many people can make Paks the grandest in south Asia by far.

    Then china has plans to set up 1-2 million bpd refineries in Pak besides laying gas pipe lines and use pak as trade conduit between middle east and China, which will be the biggest economy on planet earth in 2-3 decades.

    PAKS HAVE VERY SANGUINE REASONS TO WALK TALL AND STAY STRONG.JUST KEEP UP THE NUCLEAR ARSENAL ONLY FOR SECURITY REASONS.DO NOT FORGET THAT IT IS ONLY NUKES REASONS THAT RUSSIA CAN SURVIVE IN THE FACE OF 14 TIMES STRONGER ECONOMY OF US.

    PAKS HAVE NO WORRIES ABOUT 55 MILLION DOLLARS CHIPS BEING PLAYED THROUGH VARIEGATED SLOTS,WHEN THE OVERALL ECONOMIC HELP IS BEING TRIPLED TO THE TUNES OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS PER YEAR.AND PAKS HAVE RECEIVED FROM CHINA OVER 500 MILLIONS IN MATTER OF FEW MONTHS.

    WE HAVE BIT OF POLITICAL SQUABBLING AND THOSE KINDS OF CHILDISH ACTS WILL MATURE TO SUBSIDE BEHAVIOUR OF OUR POLITICIANS IN MATTER OF SHORT TIME.

    WE PAKS MUST SEE THE COAL RESERVES, GOLD RESERVES, COPPER RESERVES OF WORLD CLASS DEVELOPED.

    A FINANCIALLY STRONG PAKISTAN WILL ALSO BE MILITARILY MORE STRONG PAKISTAN.

    WHO WANTS WARS WHEN OUR SWEET,, GRAND, LOVELY AND LOVABLE PAK PEOPLE WILL BE RUFFLING THEIR FEATHERS THROUGH MORE OF THE INDUCED PROSPERITY BY PAKS WORLD CLASS GRAND RESOURCES OF COAL, COPPER AND GOLD.

    AND PAKS WON'T WORRY ABOUT WAR WHEN PAK TIME TESTED GREAT FRIEND CHINA IS ALLWAYS CASTING ITS SHADOW ON PAKS.

    AND PAKS ARE ALSO GRATEFUL TO THE WEST OVER MR MILBAND'S VERY PRO PAK STANCE ON KASHMIR.

    OUR SWEET PAKS MUST AND WILL STAY GRAND.

    Indian surge in drive to isolate Pak

    26/11 is two months old,but Samjhota express tragedy and the global indian drive to isolate,malign and dismember Pak took a massive surge two years ago.

    The attack was multi pronged and Pak was targetted both inside out.There is mountain of written evidence and indian proclaimed joy on some scores against Pakistan.

    But,there were some vicious and malicious contradictions in the indian onslaught on Paks especially in the Islamic world and within Pak territory that prevented a steep take off of damage.For example hate propaganda against Paks was also laced with too much anti muslim tones.Their media and intelligence pronged attack against Paks went too far in damaging ways even in couple Pak papers that no others in the world would ever publish comments about distruction of its own army, intelligence and even country in murderous media attacks.It happened or it could happen only in one or two Pakistani news papers.

    I had my general letters published in Hidustan Times on the best letters of the day spot,but they never published a single letter of mine that even slightly favoured pakistan,let alone being slightly critical of India.Here we have one or two papers publishing letters from indian spies enforced by their intelligence agencies against Pak military, against Pakistan,against Islam religion and even about nuking Pakistan from within.indians have pentrated even our media in bid to break up the country and only Allah's blessings are saving our motherland.

    But,Paks have some blessed support in many forms to annul the great anti Pak designs and these are as such:

    1. China is still fully supportive of Paks and has even signed military pact with Paks very recently.And China's financial support very recently to Paks was more than three times in size compared to any country.

    2.America and Britain througn Mr Milband have supported the right cause of support for kashmir and are talking of tripling Pak's financial suppoert.

    3.China has signed MOU with UAE to supply less cost and much more efficient and productive labour to UAE.That will drastically dilute indian influence that is directed mainly on Pak's containment in islamic world by india.Them exalted adversary have shown berserk hate obsession to isolate Paks any where and every where,from outside and within.Thir anti pak spy work,machinery and the agencies are working round the clock and seven days a week to embroil into bid to undo 1947 partition.You can even read some hindus,even with disguised Islamic and other names and falsified e-mail addresses barking against Paks even in one or two pak news papers.It does'nt happen in any other country and Paks have to arrest this trend even even in within.

    COUNTRIES HAVE LOST THEIR INDEPENDENCE ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHEN THEY BECAME TOO CARELESS,INDIFFERENT OR UN-CONCERNED TO DEFEND THEIR IDENTITIES AS NATION.

    Pakistan,in some respect is doing a wonderful job in aligning on the side of peace.Paks are doing the best as they can do in the world's most difficult circumstances of the mightiest trying to use Pak as thir chess board of playing their global intersts and strategies.you have the world's mightiestst like America,Russia and China around.You have India that is most viciously pretending to be on the mightiest league.Paks have the global energy life lines in the neighbour hood.You have four of the world's five biggest energy users/producers present and or contemplating their presence around Pak.in 2015, Paks will be surrounded by four out of five nations that will consume or produce more than 10 million barrels per day of energy with already super powers or could be there status.These five countries by 2015 will be America,Iran,Saudi Arabia,Russia and China.india will have 5 mbpd energy equivalent capacity and that puts some damper on danger index that could otherwise hamper Pak nation.There is some relief there.

    VERY IMPORTANT,AMERICA IS TALKING OF ACTION, NOT ATTACK IN FATA.

    Unfortunately Pak is not Iran as Iran is sitting on the world's largest combined oil and gas reserves(second biggest in oil and second biggest in gas).By 2030 iran will be number one in each and will have one quarter of world's oil and gas due to production and depetion trends of Saudi Arabia and Russia.And Iran has been insulated from attacks that were almost certain to happen at one time,but were held back by the final advise to Bush by America's army generals.You talk to any one in America or Canada or Europe about half or even one third depriving of gasoline, and people are scared.Car culture here is too sacred for survival reasons.The remediation engineering is non existent in America or any where in the world if the oil supplies countries get onslaught of nuclear war fare or even massive conventional or bio-chemical warfare in middle east.Remediatio simply does not exist and all the global prosperity and life will be history.

    NO WONDER OBAMA WANTS DIRECT TALKS WITH IRAN AFTER BUSH FOLLIES.

    India and Pak

    Let there be no war between both the countries. Let us revert back to the 1000 years back when no Muslim had ever set his foot on Indian soil. When Pak and India were one.

    Vijay, Hungary - 29 January, 2009

    Mitigating war before start

    The war chances between India and Pakistan are minmal as there are the world's bosses like mainly America and Nato and others like Russia and China as bigger and even key players in and around.

    Pak government and military needs admiration for handling the whole Bombay related crisis in a very intelligent ways.Honestly speaking Zardari, Gilani and CO have done mitigation on war prevention in very wise ways that were much above expectations of Paks and the whole world.

    Fortunately, Paks are not aligned with any one in mega war equatio; Paks are given a roll that is small yet sad enough, but not mega explosive if the world is trapped into Armageddon type WW3.If the world stock markets do not show rallies and lead the world into 1930's type deep depression otherwis, then we will be back to FDR days, whose relentless massage to help economy revival also failed and culminated into WW2 in 1939.Let us pray to God that the stock markets picks up with rallies to extricate the world from coming Armageddon otherwise.

    One thing for sure, no mighty one is going to stay put as standby to let the wolves pounce on Pakistan.Even in worse scenario, if all fails for which chances are just minimal, Paks have strong enough nuclear arsenal to deter the worse from even intiating or happening.

    PEACE IS VERY WELL ON THE HORIZON AS FAR AS SOUTH ASIA IS CONCERNED.THERE HAVE BEEN, THERE ARE AND THERE MAY BE TO LESS DGREE OR MOST PROBABLY NOT AT ALL, TO OCCUR THOSE SPOILERS THAT LEAD TO WAR.

    AMERICA, RUSSIA, IRAN, EUROPE AND CHINA WILL BE THE BIGGEST PLAYERS TO SHAPE THE WORLD AND EVEN PEACE OF THE MANKIND.AND THESE ARE THE ONLY FIVE PLAYERS THAT WILL HAVE OIL AND GAS ENERGY PROCESSING IN EXCESS OF 10 MILLION BPD EQUIVALENCE.ENERGY PROCESSING IS DIFFEREN THAN ENERGY PRODUCTION FOR EXPORT REASONS. ENERGY PROCESSING ENHANCES THE ECONOMY AS DOUBLE WORTH THROUGH ENERGY PROCESSING.OVER THE NEXT DECADE, AMERICA, EUROPIAN UNION, RUSSIA, CHINA AND IRAN WILL BE THE ONLY FIVE ENERGY ECONOMIC SUPER POWERS TO HAVE ENERGY PROCESSING MORE THAN 10 MBPD EQUIVALENCE. INDIA WILL HAVE 5 MBPDE.AMERICA IS EVEN DE-ESCALLATING ITS PRESENCE FROM IRAQ AND AREA THAT GAVE AMERICA AND THE WEST REGAIN OF ENERGY SECURITY THAT EVEN COST AMERICA 9/11.THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO 9/11 AND NO SECOND GULF WAR AND SECOND AFGHAN WAR IF THERE WAS NO FIRST GULF WAR OF 1990.IF THE FIGHTERS OF AFGHAN WAR HAD BEEN REHABILITATED LIKE AFTER ALL PAST WARS, THINGS MIGHT HAVE STOPPED AT FIRST GULF WAR.

    THE ENERGY SECUROTY OF AMERICA AND THE WEST WAS IN SERIOUS DANGER AS THEY CONTROLLED ONLY TWO(SAUDI ARABIA AND ABU DHABI)OUT OF THE SEVEN (IRAN, IRAQ, KUWAIT, VENEZUELLA AND RUSSIA BEING THE OTHER FIVE)MAIN OIL RESERVE AND OIL PRODUCING COUNTRIES.AMERICA AND EUROPE ARE AROUIND PAK FOR THEIR PRESENCE AROUND WHERE THE WORLD'S OTHER MIGHTY ONES LIKE RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE.THE MIGHTY ONES WILL ENSURE THAT NOTHING GOEAS AGAINST THEIR WANTS, WISHES AND INTERESTS OF SURVIVAL REASONS.

    IRAN IS GOING TO DRAW THE BIGGEST ATTENTION DUE ITS ENERGY RESOURCES AND DUE TO THE MOST IMPORTANT CHUNK OF MIDDLE EAST GRAVITATING TOWARDS IT.IRAN ALREADY POSSESSES THE WORLD'S LARGEST OIL AND GAS COMBINED RESOURCES BEING SECOND IN EACH NOW.BY 2030, IRAN WILL BE NOT ONLY NUMBER ONE IN EACH OF GAS AND OIL RESEVES DUE TO SPEEDED UP OIL PRODUCTION BY SAUDI ARABIA AND GAS PRODUCTION BY RUSSIA,BY 2030 OR AROUND, IRAN WILL POSSESS ONE QUARTER OF THE WORLD'S OIL AND GAS,BUT MOST OF MIDDLE EAST INCLUDIN IRAQ AND QATAR AND SYRIA AND LEBANON(PERHAPS KUWAIT TOO)WILL HAVE GRAVITATED INTO IRAN AS THE HEART OF GLOBAL ENERGY AND SURVIVAL.YOU WILL SEE MUCH OF GLOBAL STRATEGIC ACTIVITY PICKED UP AROUIND IRAN WITH PAK-AFGHAN EMBEDDED INTO IT.

    SO THE PEACE AND WAR AND ALL OTHER RELATED ACTIVITY AROUND PAK WILL BE DECIDED BY AMERICA AND THE WEST WHO CONSUME MORE THAN 60 PERCENT OF THE WORLD'S ENERGY.

    PEACE(LIMITED WAR IN NAME OF TERROR RELATED COULD LINGER ON TO KEEP US-NATO PRESENCE)WILL BE AS US-NATO WISH AND NOT AS INDIA WANTS THINGS TO BE.INDIA MAY AND WILL TRY TO INTER-POSE BUT WITH JUST EYE ONLY ON PAKISTAN,BUT IT WILL DRAG INDIA MORE AND MORE INTO THE MIGHTY ONES EQUATION OF WW3 IF THE ENERGY SUPPLIES BECOME VERY DIFFICULT TO AMERICA AND THE WEST.THE NEW UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND PLANNED OIL REFINERIES IN IRAN,SAUDI ARABIA,IRAQ,UAE,KUWAIT, SYRIA AND ELSEWHERE IN M.E WILL BRING THE AREA IN LEAGUE WITH AMERICA AND WESTERN EUROPE AS ONE OF THE THREE ONLY ENERGY SPOTS ON PLANET EARTTH TO PROCESS VALUE ADDED OIL PROCESSING AND REFINING.

    SO,AMERICA AND EUROPE WILL BE ACTIVE IN PAK TO MAINTAIN AT LEAST AFGHANISTAN AS FRONT LINE STATE AROUND THE OTHER MIGHTY CHALLENGERS.

    PAKISTAN'S VERY VOLATILE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE NOT WITHOUT SERIOUS REASONS AND I DO NOT THINK THAT THEY WILL ALOW GOVERNMENT CHANGES WITHOUT DUE ELECTIONS.

    NO BODY CHANGED FRANKLIN D ROOSVELT(FDR) FROM US PRESIDENCY DURING DEEP RECESSION OF 1930'S AND WW2 OF 1939-1945.

    FDR PRESIDED OVER THREE RERMS IN USA, FROM 1933-1945.

    Reality Check

    Neither Pakistan nor India, although on the latter's part it may seem unbelievable, do not want another war as it would result in large-scale devastation of both countries. However, that doesn't mean we, as Pakistanis, and our government gives up on our national interests. We, the citizens, feel obligated to watch indian movies and hear Indian music while they've banned all our media in their country. Our government insists on bowing down to them and presenting an image that we are open and servile to whatever they say. We need a substantial and consistent foreign policy, not one which our leaders change with every statement issued by India, the USA or whichever country or party is involved.

    Imaan Hazir, Pakistan - 02 February, 2009

    Pak uplift for peace reasons

    Pakistan needs a tremendous uplift and there are potentials to make it happen. It may take time, but patience will be the kery for reward to accomplish that.

    Pakistan is believed to have 200 billion tons of coal reserves that are second only to those of America.By 2030, Paks will have more coal than any other country as America is digging out 1.5-2 billion tons py for consumption.Paks produce only 5 million tons py and by 2030 or around Pakistan will be the king cole of the world.

    Paks, if develope this coal to generate power, sell it for steel making and convert some or much of Pak coal into gasoline by SASOL process, it will be big boost to pak economy and security for peace and war prevention reasons.

    One ton of coal gives you 2 megawaat of power or 2 barrel of gasoline or make 2 tons of steel(after converting to coke).America and the developed countries including China produce most of their power by using coal.Pakistan's both big neighbours, China and India are soon running out of metallurgical coal and power coal and will need big imports. China in particular is to be eyed as very auspicious customer as it produces 10 times more steel and 4-5 times more power than India.

    Coal to gasoline conversion can be highly promising and boon to Pak future economy.The Germans were making gasoline from coal in WW2 and the process after war moved to South Africa as SASOL company.The Germans could produce only 120000 bpd of gasoline from coal in WW2.SASOL has multi billion dollars coal to gasoline project under construction in Indonesia. But, there are still metallurgical issues and equipment integrity issues that have kept it fromm free take off.

    You need 10 times more metallurgy for reasons to build thick wall vessels and then carbon steel metallurgy starts getting problems after 550 degree centigrade teperature.they say that technical and production limitations of this process of very high temperatures(over 1000 degree Centigrade)and Hitler's need to have hands on at least 1 mbpd of oil for war machinery was the key cause to start war against Russia so to take over the oil of Romania and Poland. Excessive requirements of thick wall metallurgy has even prevented America to do any progress in the process.I think that I have an engineering design in my mind that uses internal insulation limiting the steel shell temperature to 200 degree centigrade of safe operational capabilities.But, it will require extensive pilot plant work at variegated pressure levels to see if that design of mine could withstand high temperatures and pressures with only half to three quarter inch vessel wall thickness compared to 4-6 inches they use now a days. If you can cut the use of metallurgy to one fifth and create design of metal shell temperatures raising not more than 300 degree centigrade, you have done a big marvel of success.May be Paks will try and succeed, where even America or Hitler's Germany or even SASO are struggling to make gasoline out of coal in vast commercial quantities.

    Besides coal, copper and gold reserves, Paks have to work hard on becoming energy conduit between middle east and China.

    If Pakistan can become south Korea in south Asia, Paks have contained war for ever and won peace fo far beyond for ever.And coal development and functioning as energy conduit between middle east and China are must for Paks for long term or forever peace.

    US president Obama has stressed need for Pak stability in his speech last night.For that America and Europe must rush to develope Pak coal resources as soon as possible and set up power generation plants of mega scale. Do not forget that America is also producing over 2 trillion cubic fet of gas as coal bed methane(CBM)and that is 3 times gas Paks get from Sui and all other domestic production of natural gas.That CBM will be three times the gas Paks will get as share of their IPI pipe line if built and run at maxed capacity 5-7 years down the road.

    Pak uplift and coal and energy corridor roll between middle east and China will be very essential for Pak stability and peace reasons.

    NO BODY ATTACKS STABLE AND SECURE COUNTRIES.

    My sweet peace loving Paks

    Peace is the sweet reward for those who love peace and Pak government and people played the peace trumpets very well in recent crisis times, when war clouds were well overcast.Paks need be bestowed liberal praise and admiration for doing the peace ruffles in examplary manners , modes and conduct.

    It is easy to get tempted with bellicose intransigence to malign and rail the adversary, but peace is the only good thing for both and every side.

    Hitler is reported to have said that he had several sleepless nights when he attacked Russia with his far too superior military and equipment.Napolean did the same rush to attack Russia and ended up with defeat in Waterloo as he was too exhausted and worn from his Russian war.Ottoman Turks went through same against the Russians and so did Brits from Russian trained and equipment supplied aFGHANS to defeat Brits twice.

    A true human will not wish war damage even to his enemies even and will look with disgust at pictures of Dresden bombings in WW2. Peaceful human will be horrified to see pictures of charred, ashed and smoked shadowed humans of nuked Hiroshima with no stomach for war.

    I would congratulate people of both Pakistan and India to have averted war and crisis of two months ago.It is good to see people of both Pakistan and India not raped by war and good they averted possible nuclear catostophy and Armageddon.It is good to be alive and survivung with beautiful smiles rather than bloodied and ashed by the ravage of war.

    You can redress the wounds of Samjhota and 26/11 and turn those crisis into peace as held steadfast.People of south Asia deserve smiles and kisses of peace to have extricated the looming Armageddon.All pretty girls save kisses of peace for me when I soon visit there.

    Glad to see you live, you're pretty
    In each village yes, and in each city
    Peace smiles I see on those cheeks
    And kisses of peace on them one seeks

    Peace brings pleasure,peace brings joy
    Love grand peace, each girl each boy
    War is evil thing, war we hate
    And in peace, we all feel great

    Sweet peace lovers, stay as sweet
    Peace brings love, you stay discreet
    Peace loving Paks and Indians You'll find
    Forgiving each other, they will feel kind

    Peace is love and so sweet thing
    Peace is winter, summer and spring
    Talk of peace and peace you tell
    War mongers sure can go to hell

    Peace is dish o delish you bite
    War is game of death you fight
    All are winners in peace my friend
    So love real peace with no pretend

    In peace we all survive as same
    War brings death to all with shame
    So be peaceful, be peaceful man
    Avoid evil war as much you can





    Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 04 February, 2009

    You are right Anwar, that Pakistan is a peace loving country except of course the tiny issue of them funding extremists against India..

    But oh well they are peaceful no doubt...

    Ambuj, Ukraine - 05 February, 2009

    War does not lead to Peace

    Let us get this straight. Pak is a hand out from India. Any country that is formed due to religon is outcasting oneself from others. There will alway be a sence of insecurity in such a nation, where there will be more sub divisions. Ofcourse nobody wants a war. This ia not a childs play to show who is strong or smart.
    See in the Middle east Israel and Palastine again these country are thinking they are protecting their regilion and have forgotten about humanity, how stupid of them.
    I think no country should be created because of a religion. War never leads to Peace. If we allow others to live then we can live in Peace.

    Zain, Canada - 10 February, 2009

    Act if you want to be friends

    War ..let us not let this lead to it!
    If Pakistan means business then reply to the dossier in such a way that the whole world feels that Pak means business!
    Sending a tit for tat response is not going to help.
    Root out terrorism and progress together.
    Root out atleast some of the terror outfits when you have all over the country.
    Think of the future as this denial will certainly lead your Country nowhere!

    Arun, Pakistan - 12 February, 2009

    It should now be clear to all Pakistanis that Taliban are working on the agenda of the enemies of P-akistan to dismember P-akistan from within. They want to create a state within a state, and make Pakistanis refugees and dispossessed in their own country.
    It should be obvious to all but the intellectually challenged or blind that Taliban are the forefront of the 100,000 agents that India has already successfully prepositioned to dismember P-akistan from within (http://www.fas.org/irp/world/india/raw/index.html).

    Just like I-ndian agents under the guise of “Mukti Bahini” freedom fighters in East P-akistan (http://www.google.com/search?q=mukti+bahini&hl=en&sa=X&tbo=1&tbs=tl:1&num=20&ei=s0wPSuiwL4OUswO-v-H_Ag&oi=timeline_navigation_bar&ct=timeline-navbar&cd=1)
    had led the campaign to destroy the P-akistan infrastructure in East P-akistan as a prelude to the I-ndian attack, intervention, and invasion of East P-akistan in 1971; so are the Taliban now at the forefront of I-ndian further aggression (in the not too distant horizon) that I-ndia has now in store for P-akistan (http://banglapedia.search.com.bd/HT/M_0380.htm).

    Whom are the Taliban fooling? Taliban means students. Are these the so called students who blew up the ancient Buddha statues at Bamyian? The wonderful statues! A wonder for the ancient travelers, they would come from far and wide to view the wonderful Buddha statues, (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/2239423.stm).

    India and Pakistan jumping towards nuclear hell


    INDIA AND PAKISTAN JUMPING IN NUCLEAR HELL
    Sir, If it is due to ignorance that some authors of India ignore the side of nuclear hazards, then they ought to assume reticence, and if it is the result of blinding zeal then it is the zeal ill-applied, very, such people could not be regarded as the friends of India .And if they are the friends, they are very unwise friends. They exhort their countrymen to jump into the atomic hell. Let the people of India and Pakistan know that the Super-powers have enough nuclear fuel to set all the world on fire. A few nuclear war heads of India and Pakistan would not mean much in the universal perspective. Yet from the economic point of view the affair may prove disastrous, and from the political point of view it surely is the harbinger of nuclear misery and atomic destruction.

    If pigs could fly...

    1. No. Who dare touch the sentinel of world peace, the terrorist warrior & custodian of Islamic bomb - the beautiful nation of Pakistan.

    2. Pakistan will win hands-down and will be anointed the undisputed champion leader of the Muslim ummah & will establish an Islamic caliphate extending from Xinjiang in China to France.

    3. India should unconditionally offer Kashmir to Pakistan & China should offer Xinjiang to become part of the grand Islamic caliphate as a friendly gesture to its all weather friend. The US should waive off all of Pakistan's debt & ensure future funding through WB & IMF to prevent the Islamic Republic of Pakistan from going on another Jehadi adventure.

    Peace is good for both of us

    War is not an option for both the countries. A war would mean a serious dent in teh economical status of both the countries which cannot be afforded.

    Moreover look at what enemity has done o both the nations. India is one of the biggest spender on defence ignoring its economic woes. Pakistan is living on dole outs. Talking bravado is great to hear but is disasterous. The previous letter of Amanul Haq, United States of America is a great example. India should hand over Kashmir, China should hand over Xingxiang, US should waive off debts and ensure future funding. The above clearly indicates that Pakistan is currently is not able to do any of these and is depending on the magnanimity of others for its day to day survival. This is a cancer that is slowly killing Pakistan. The proof is the number of casualities in SWAT and Buner operations compared to army personnel were killed by Taliban or any of the mujahid in the last decade?

    This is similar to the classic story of two cats fighting over a piece of bread and a monkey offering to mediate. All of us know who ate the bread in the end

    Stop giving religion as excuse

    During Indo-Pak wars, the soldiers of Pak have killed muslim soldiers of India. Then why Pak crying over Islam?
    Regarding the problem of terrorism in Pakistan, if you pet a snake and do not feed them on time, they are surely going to attack you.

    The sole solution

    • Can there be another war between India and Pakistan?
    Yes! There is no other way except a war because the Bharti ruling junta is extremely narrow minded and their main motto is 'Akhand Bharat' and that is only possible, in their view, through war because in their view, Pakistan is somewhat vulnerable,, and they have a 'crippled giant' in their support and therefore Pakistan can be defeated through diverse machinations and thus Bharat can achieve its objective of 'Akhand Bharat'. Though that is just day-dreaming and nothing more because of 'mutual destruction syndrome'. The war would be pre-emptive from the side of Bharat because at present Bharat is following the exact footsteps of the 'crippled giant'. Compare 9/11 and Mumbai scenarios.
    • If yes, what will be the repercussions?
    There would be a considerable, rather huge destruction on both sides but because the Bharati dream of becoming super power of Asia will crumble disastrously, it would be a great lesson for it for the future, not to attempt what is not possible to acquire. Pakistan is not as weak as the U.S. and the Bharti Junta think. It only requires a patriotic, sagacious and self-less leadership, which it does have but is being sidelined because of the extrinsic circumstances, and Pakistan can stand erect and exalted.
    • If no, what is the solution?
    The only Solution is the guidance from the Holy Qur'an:
    'Verily, Allah commands you to give over the trusts to those entitled to them, and that , when you judge between men, you judge with justice. And surely excellent is that with which Allah admonishes you. Allah is All-Hearing, All –Seeing'. (An-Nisaa: v59)
    The First command is to the public, and it is a command, not a request or an appeal, that select only those who are capable of trust.
    The second command is to the rulers and the authorities that when you judge, and judge is in an inclusive sense, the judgment must be totally impartial, unprejudiced and unbiased.
    And then Allah Azza wa Jalla directs that the best guidance and admonition comes only from Him because He is All-Hearing, nothing lapses from Him nor can be missed by Him and He is All-Seeing, that each and every thing is in His view and sight, even the 'treachery of the eyes' and what 'breasts conceal'(Al Mu'min: v20) and He is also Omni-Potent, 'Allah has the power to do all that He wills' (Al-Baquarah: v21).
    When one has to be responsible and accountable to such an Entity, it is not possible for him/her to act in a way which would be contemptible and despicable to Him. This is the real recipe and formula to eradicate and eliminate evil behaviour from the society and Pakistani public must adopt and implement them if they want to advance and become Prosperous and in peace, overtly as well as covertly.
    The next command is about the security of the state. Allah Azza wa Alaa says: 'And make ready for them who fight you whatever you can of armed force and of mounted pickets at the frontier, whereby you may frighten the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you know not, but Allah knows them. And whatsoever you spend in the way of Allah, it shall be paid back to you in full and you shall not be wronged.' (Al Anfaal: v61)
    If Pakistani rulers adopt this command of Allah and keep the borders strong, well attended, well guarded and are fully alert to every overt and covert design, strategy and intention of the enemy, the enemy, whoever it is, would never attempt to attack Pakistan and the public would always be in a mood which is extremely satisfied, relaxed and comfortable and would always be helpful, cooperative and supportive of the government and the armed forces. It is extremely important and obligatory. These are the commands of the Entity Who is Omni-Present, Omni-Potent and All-Knowing and no one can be more accurate, precise and perfect in his commands and in their implementation than Allah Azza wa Alaa.

    If the Pakistani rulers implement these commands, there would be no possibility of pre-emption or attack, whether by Bharat or by any other crusader and Pakistan would live in tranquility, peace, calm and harmony and that is the sure-shot recipe, formula and cure for all the possible ailments and malaises to avoid the undesirable, detrimental and adverse circumstances. Otherwise Pakistanis will continue suffering, having problems with foreign elements and would not be able to solve any crisis, dilemma or predicament because they are not applying the right remedy for the disease.
