Most dangerous country of the World

27 October, 2007

The cover of Newsweek’s last issue dubbing Pakistan as the most dangerous country in the world, not merely stunned Pakistanis but the entire world, which earlier considered Iraq and Afghanistan as the most dangerous states.

The cover stating " the most dangerous country in the world is not Iraq. But it’s Pakistan" sent a wave of shock and anger all over Pakistan with analysts fearing the Newsweek’s move as part of ongoing campaign against the country’s nuclear programme.

Ironically, the Newsweek’s report does not contain any comparison or facts and figures about suicide bombings, killing of civilians, and personnel, and other terrorist incidents in Pakistan and Iraq.

According to analysts, the Newsweek’s report is totally baseless, and nothing more than a cock and bull story. Surprisingly, the Newsweek analyst totally forgets the facts that in Iraq, killing of US soldiers, hundreds of civilians, Iraqi troops, and suicide bombing have been an everyday affair.

Around 4000 US soldiers have so far been killed in Iraq since 2004, whereas the entire infrastructure of the country has been destroyed by everyday suicide bombings and bomb blasts.

The analyst also forgets the fact that there is no normal life in Iraq, while Pakistan is the second fastest growing country in Asia.

Here are some questions.
1)what is your opinion about Newsweek’s report?
2)Is this a calculated attempt to prove that Pakistan’s nuclear pro gramme is not safe and may go in hands of extremists?
3) Is this a move to pave the way for foreign forces in Pakistan?

NON DANGEROUS PAKISTAN-OUR EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL FRIENDS IN REAL FACTOR.

WE HAVE BROTHERLY FRIENDS IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD AND ELSEWHERE, WHO SEE US WITH THEIR HEART'S DELIGHT.

THE TURKS KISSING OUR FLAGS, THE IRANIANS TAKING US IN THEIR FINGERS, THE SIKHS TALKING OF PAK PUNJAB MORE THAN THEY TALK OF INDIA, CHINA DOING US FAVOURS, MANY ARABS EMBRACING US AS MUSLIMS, THE AMERICANS TREATING US AS FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS WITH TALK OF US AS HARMLESS COUNTRY WHEN IN DIRE NEED AND MOST OF HUMANITY THINKING OF US AS PEACEFUL, PEACE LOVING AND NON-DANGEROUS PEOPLE.

ONLY, WHEN THE NEED SUBSIDES OR RECEDES, SOME ODD PEOPLE SOMEWHERE FALSLY START SLAPPING THE SIGN OF DANGER ON US.

BUT, YOU CAN EXPECT ANY THING FROM FAIR WEATHER OR SEASONAL FRIENDS.WE HAVE A VERY VAST SEGMENT OF HUMANITY AS OUR FRIENDS WHO TELL US AND OTHERS THAT PAKISTAN IS HARMLESS AND NON-DANGEROUS COUNTRY.

OUR OWN PEOPLE ARE THE PILLARS OF OUR STRENGTH. WE DO NOT HAVE TO LET THE TROJAN HORSE OR OUR OWN ODD TRAITORS TO WORK ON CONSPIRACIES.I THINK, WE HAVE TO WATCH SOME SUSPECTS AND THEIR ASSOCIATED SUSPICIONS THAT MAY BE WORKING ON TAKING OUR NUKES OUT AND HAND OUT THE FATHER OF NATION'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM TO THE FOREIGNERS.

Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 30 October, 2007

NON DANGEROUS PAKISTAN-PEACE THROUGH OUR PEACE SENSE.

PAKISTAN IS PEACEFUL COUNTRY RIGHT TO THE CORE AND IS THEREFORE NON DANGEROUS.

TO HEAR FROM NEWSWEEK THAT WE ARE THE MOST DANGEROUS COUNTRY MAKES US WONDER IF OUR RELATIONS WITH THEM SOME PEOPLE ARE BASED ONLY ON NEED IN FAIR WEATHER AND FAIR SEASONS.

WE MUST NOT FORGET THAT OUR SURVIVAL AND SAVIOUR, THAT ARE OUR NUCLEAR ASSETS, ARE PAIN IN THE NECK OF SOME EXALTED ONES, WHO ARE NEVER GOING TO BE REAL FRIENDS OF MUSLIMS.NO MATTER HOW PEACEFUL WE ARE, HOW DANGER FREE WE ACT OR BEHAVE, THESE EXALTED ONES WILL ALLWAYS FIND THE CHANCE TO SHOOT THE ARROWS OF HATE ON US. THEY MAY FIND FLEETING CO-OPERATION WITH US, ONLY TO LOOK THE OTHER WAYS WHEN THE NEED MAY SUBSIDE IN SUBSTANCE OR CIRCUMSTANCES.

PAKISTAN MUST BE VERY CAREFUL AND MUST CAST ASIDE EVEN PEOPLE INSIDE AMONGST US OF ANY SUSPICION.

THESE EXALTED ONES WILL NEVER SAVE US IF OUR COUNTRY IS TURNED INTO KILLING FIELD LIKE IRAQ.THE TRAITORS AMONGST US, LIKE ALLWAYS, WILL POCKET THEIR AND OUR MONEY AND RUN AWAY AS THEY HAVE BEEN ALLWAYS DOING ONLY TO RETURN TO LOOT MORE.

BUT, REGARDLESS OF THE "ROCK THE BOAT PEOPLE", PAKISTAN IS GENERALLY PEACEFUL AND NON DANGEROUS.

Newsweek Article

It made for interesting reading. I enjoyed reading the article. That being said, it was factually scant. It did seem to focus on various players on the stage and various on-the-street sources to which the reporters had access.

Although it is nice to share a kilo of meat with the local terrorist and report it on the page, I certainly have a few Pakistani within the government whom I would rather spend an evening with if given the option.

NON DANGEROUS PAKISTAN-OUR ENTERTAINING FACTORS

LOVERS AND ENTERTAINERS NEVER TURN INTO FIGHTERS, AND THERE IS NOTHING TO BE WORRIED FROM THESE JOLLY MOLLY PEOPLE.

PAKISTAN HAS PRODUCED THE GRANDEST ENTERTAINERS IN SOUTH ASIA AND ALSO AT WORLD CLASS LEVEL.

OUR SONGSTRESS LATE NOOR JEHAN HAD THE MOST PERFECT VOICE EVER KNOWN. OUR NUSRAT FATEH ALI WAS DECLARED THE BEST SINGER IN THE WORLD BY THE UNITED NATIONS.

PAKISTANIS, THEREFORE SPEND GOOD PART OF THEIR TIME ON PEACEFUL ENTERTAINMENTS AND ON NON DANGER ISSUES.

I HAD ATTENDED A CONCERT OF NOOR JEHAN IN CANADA, WHERE THE SIKH PEOPLE TOOK OFF THEIR TURBANS AND HELD THEM UP IN THEIR HANDS FOR GIVING GRAND NOOR JEHAN THE FINEST STANDING OVATION THAT ANY ENTERTAINER HAS EVER ENJOYED.

THE SAME ENTERTAINER NOOR JEHAN'S SONGS IN INTEZAR (1956)WERE THE CATALYST TO START A POWERFUL PEACE DIPLOMACY IN SOUTH ASIA THAT DID SOLVE INDUS WATER SHARING PROBLEM WITH A TREATY BETWEEN THE TWO NEIGHBOURS. THIS INTEZAR DIPLOMACY OF NOOR JEHAN'S SONGS EVEN HAD A GOOD SHOT AT SOLVING KASHMIR ISSUE AND MIGHT HAVE RESOLVED IT AS WELL IF NEHRU HAD LIVED AN OTHER 5-10 YEARS.

NEWSWEEK EDITOR NEEDS HIS HEAD EXAMINED WHEN HE CALLS US THE MOST DANGEROUS COUNTRY-MILLION TIMES SHAME ON THE PERPETUATOR.

Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 30 October, 2007

not true

The Editor,
Newsweek Magazine.
U.S.A.

Dear Mr. Editor,

You have mentioned in your latest edition that "Pakistan has become the more
dangerous country than Iraq".

What was the reason Mr. Editor that caused you to hurt the sentiments of millions
of Pakistanis and millions of people of this nation.

What was the criteria of your research that you did not give any proof, neither
comparision, nor any graf to prove your statement in this regard or it was just a
miss printing and actually you wanted to print that "Pakistan has become the
more dangerous country than U.S.A .

For your kind information, I would like to mention here that this is a peace loving
nation and they will never allow anybody to hurt their sentiments without any proof.
Everywhere in the world, you will find some pockets of millitants, some black sheeps,
but it does not mean that some one will start blaming those countries or their nations.
You must be well aware of the fact that why these millitants have become so active
in our country in the recent past, actually we are paying the cost of friendship with
your country, Mr. Editor.

You are requested to apologise from this nation for hurting their sentiments and kindly always be neutral while serving the media.

Thank you very much.

NON DANGEROUS PAKISTAN-OUR MORAL SENSE FACTOR.

PAKISTAN IS ANON DANGEROUS COUNTRY EVEN WHEN THERE ARE WARS AROUND FOR CONTROL OF THE WORLD'S ENERGY RESOURCES.

EXTREMISM IS ONE FACTOR, BUT IT IS MUCH DILUTED BY THE REVENGE TAKING BY TENS OF THOUSANDS OR EVEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, WHO HAVE TURNED INTO REVENGE AVENGERS ON THE LOSS OF THEIR VERY CLOSE RELATIVES WHO GOT KILLED.THOSE ORPHANS AND WIDOWS FROM 60 OR MORE KILLED EVERY OTHER DAY ARE WALKING IN DESPAIR.

MORALLY SPEAKING, EXTREMISM OR KILLING OF ANY FELLOW HUMAN IS BAD AND SIN.BUT, IT BECOMES THE DUTY OF THE WEALTHY NATIONS TO REHABILITATE THE SURVIVORS FROM AFGHAN AND OTHER WARS THAT BENEFITTED THE MIGHTIEST AND THE RICHEST ONES.

REHABILITATION WAS DONE AFTER EVERY WAR.BUT, WHO CARES FOR THE MUSLIMS, WHO MUST BE DEPRIVED OF POST WAR REHABILITATIONS. THE MUSLIMS MUST EVEN BE HATED EVEN IF THEY HAVE GIVEN MILLIONS DEAD SACRIFICES.DON'T SAY THAT YOU SMELL EXTREMISM OUT OF ME. I AM TALKING HUMANITY HERE AND MORAL SENSE IS THE BRAIN CHILD OF HUMANITY.

ARROGANCE KILLS MORAL SENSE.AN ARROGANT PERSON OR NATION IS DANGEROUS REALLY.POOR AND WEAK PAKISTANIS ARE ONLY TOEING THE LINES OF AMERICA AND OTHERS ONLY TO FIND SALVAGE OUT OF THE TOUGEST CORNER THEY HAVE BEEN TRAPPED INTO FOR CENTURIES AND MUCH MORE SINCE 9/11.STILL PAKISTAN IS NEGLIGEABLY DANGEROUS COUNTRY COMPARED TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY, IF IT WAS IN SAME SHOES.

THE GENERALLY NON-DANGEROUS STATE OF PAKISTAN AND ITS PEOPLE ARE BEING TRIED TO GET SUCKED ONTO THE HOOK TO BRAND THEM MOST DANGEROUS WITHOUT A PROOF AND REASONING OF THIS NEWLY INVENTED BLAME.

PAKISTAN APPEARS TO HAVE A MORAL STANDING TO PROVE OTHERWISE THIS VICIOUS BLAME BY NEWSWEEK.

Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 30 October, 2007

NON DANGEROUS PAKISTAN-OUR MUTUAL LOVE FACTOR.

PAKISTANIS OF ALL DIVERSITY LOVE EACH OTHER. DESPITE ALL THE UPSETS DUE TO POLITICAL GREED OF THE VICIOUS POLITICAL PLAYERS AND DESPITE THE MINGLING FROM OUTSIDER FOREIGNERS AND TRAITORING BY SOME FOREIGNERS AT HEART PAKISTANIS, THE COMMON MAN GETS ALONG WELL WITHIN ALL ETHNIC DIVERSITY IN PAKISTAN.

PAKISTAN IS NOT DANGEROUS EVEN IF IT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE TURNED INTO AN OTHER IRAQ BY ILL-WISHERS.

NEWSWEEK HAS PRINTED A RUBBISH AND FALSIFIED ARTICLE.

THE ONLY MOTIVE BEHIND IS TO MAKE PAK NUKES LOOK BAD AND SUBJECT TO BE TAKEN OUT BY THE VICIOUS AND MALICIOUS.

PAKISTAN IS PEACEFUL AND SAFE AND IT WILL PROSPER EVEN MORE SAFELY-INSHALLAH THROUGH MUTUAL LOVE AND UNITY AMONGST PUNJABIS, PATHANS, KASHMIRIS, SINDHIS, BALUCHIS AND THE MIGRANTS FROM INDIA AND AFGHANISTAN.

Most Dangerous and Investors like it

Interesting NEWSWEEK's headline, Pakistan Most Dangerou Place, was being sold on a roadside rack, under the billboard of METRO CASH & CARRY Grand opening on Oct 31st, 2007 in Lahore Pakistan. Largest retail stores, Metro, Makro, Carrefour,

Nike, Levis, Hyat Regency, 42 KFCs, 24 Plus Pizza Huts, Number of McDonalds, Subways, Microsoft, Oracle, Giant realstate groups, soaring Karachi Stock Exchange index, all has negative effect on Newsweek's headlines of calling Pakistan a Dangerous Place, then why investors are investing in Pakistan?

Simply because they are getting good returns on their investment... ABN AMRO, Standard Chartered Bank, Middleastern Banks, all of them are expanding their branch networks in Pakistan.. why?

So Mr. Editor, a biased offshoot of Fareed Zakria (Editor Newsweek), is perhaps getting paid in hidden enevelopes to write such stories...

We ain't gonna buy it Mr. Editor, you can shed your pen on some real problems of the world than worrying about how to declare Pakistan a dangerous place.. it's not working ... trust me.. it's mereley a waste of time...

This poem is only for humour

I DO NOT THINK THAT WE WILL EVER WIN THE TITLE THAT ILL INTENTIONED NEWSWEEK HAS FOR US.

WE MAY BE FLIRTING WITH THE TITLE FROM AFAR AND THAT TOO IS DOUBTFUL, EVEN IF WE FOLLOW THE SAME TRACK THAT WE ARE STEADILY ON SINCE 9/11.

ENJOY MY POEM, WHICH IS ONLY FOR HUMOUROUS REASONS.IT IS NOT INTENDED AGAINST ANY BODY AS I AM TAKING PART IN PAK TRIBUNE FORUM WITH ONLY DEABATE OR ESSAY WRITING INTERESTS.I AM NOT A JUDGE OF ANY THING, NOR I HAVE ANY INTENTIONS OF ATTACKING OR HURTING ANY BODY.

THIS POEM I HAVE WRITTEN IN CANADA IS ONLY FOR HUMOUR SAKE AND I APPOLOGIZE IF IT HAS HURT ANY BODY.IT IS OUT OF NO ILL INTENTIONS AND GOES AS SUCH:


SEE THAT BEAUTIFUL BB’S TUSH
FOR THE MUSH AND MASTER BUSH
MUSH MAY BE HIS MASTER’S VOICE
BUT BB IS HER MASTER’S CHOICE

POOR PAKS DON’T HAVE THE SAY
SOLDIERS, WITH THEIR LIVES, THEY PAY
INDIA, AMERICA AND ISRAEL
PAY FOR KILLING US PAKS EACH DAY

BB AND MILITARY BRASS ARE SAME
THEY HAVE NO REMORSE AND SHAME
THEY HAVE JUST INTEREST IN MONEY
USING MILITANTS NAME FOR BLAME

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA’S CULT ARE JERKY
YOU KNOW THAT SAUDI MONARCHY
THEY WILL MAKE YOU SAD AND MURKY
EVEN IF IT BRINGS ANARCHY

POOR PAKS, IN BETWEEN, ARE STUCK
WITHOUT MONEY AND WITHOUT LUCK
THE POOR ARE LIKE THE SITTING DUCK
WHILE BRASS AND BB GET THE BUCK

FOR OUR LITTLE ECONOMIC GAIN
WE BLEED, HAVE LOTS OF PAIN
AND THE ARROGANTS GET THE BILLIONS
EVEN IF THEY ARE INSANE

THE NATION’S SAVIOUR A.Q.KHAN
THE UGLIES CALL HIM DISGRACE
WE HAVE KHAN IN HEARTS AND FINGERS
WITH THE LOVE AND FULL EMBRACE

BB WANTS TO HAND THE HERO
TO THE STRANGERS, WHAT A GOOF
SO THEY FIND SOME HIDDEN CAUSE
AND REMOVE OUR NUKES WITH PROOF

BB WANTS THAT TRIBAL FACE
FOREIGN TROOPS, THAT IS DISGRACE
THE ARROGANT LADY DOES’NT CARE
HER MASTER’S CHOICE IS MENTAL CASE


THE COWARD MUSH IS SCARED WITH VISION
THAT 9/11 IS ALL TIME SEASON
CAN’T CHICKEN OUT OF CAT MOUSE GAME
BELLIGUERED ONE HAS SAME OLD REASON

PAK NATION, HAVE FAITH IN GOD
THAT THE WEST BE FIXED BY LORD
LET THERE BE THE PEACE AND LOVE
ALLAH SAVE US FROM ABOVE

Catapulting Propaganda

See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."

Bush, at the Athena Performing Arts Center at Greece Athena Middle and High School Tuesday, May 24, 2005 in Rochester, NY

When he departs the White House on 20 January, 2009, the current resident will bequeath to the American people and the next administration an interminable war in the Middle East and a depreciated currency.

And that's the good news. It assumes there is a successor administration and that no Cheney-contrived "national emergency" will make it possible for Bush to test drive National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD-51 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD-20 to cancel the 2008 election.

Neoconservatives led by vice president Dick Cheney remain determined to effect "regime change" in Iran. The allegation of weapons of mass destruction falsely brought against Iraq is now being deployed against Iran.

The International Atomic Energy Agency says that there is no evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. The IAEA is the institution that polices the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty by inspecting the nuclear facilities of the signatories to the treaty of which Iran is one. However, the neocon/Cheney/Bush regime is prepared to bomb Iran on the basis of fibs alone.

Faithfully repeated by the propaganda ministry that masquerades as the "mainstream media," those fibs have been trotted out so many times in recent months that significant numbers of Americans now believe themselves to be in peril from nonexistent Iranian nukes.

In this way the regime gains the complicity of the American people and their representatives in Congress for what will be unprovoked aggression against a third Middle Eastern country, a third war crime under the Nuremberg standard.

The "war on terror" is a hoax. It serves as a cover for the drive for US and Israeli hegemony in the Middle East. Iraq, Iran, and Syria became neoconservative targets, because they were the only Middle Eastern countries that are not American puppet states or dependencies.

Afghanistan was attacked, because the Taliban were uniting the country under the banner of Islam, a development that, if successful, could lead to the overthrow of the governments in America's puppet states and dependencies.

The war rhetoric against Iran ratcheted up when the White House belatedly realized that the result of "bringing democracy to Iraq" was to empower the majority Shi'ites, thereby creating a Shi'ite crescent from Iran to southern Lebanon and alarming America's Sunni Saudi Arabian dependent.

Israel's goal is to have the Americans eliminate the Muslim states that support Hamas and Hezbollah's opposition to Israel's theft of the remainder of Palestine and southern Lebanon, whose water resources Israel covets. Israel's goal thus precisely coincides with that of the Cheney regime.

The "Cakewalk War" in Iraq was supposed to be over in a few weeks and to pay for itself out of Iraqi oil revenues. The war is now five years old and has cost American taxpayers, and those left dependent on government programs by decades of a welfare state, $1 trillion in out-of-pocket and already incurred future costs.Full of hegemonic hubris, the US government does not understand that US power and hegemony have always depended, not on missiles and military force, but on the financial power conveyed by the dollar's role as reserve currency.

By going to war for hegemony, the Bush Regime has brought about American decline. While the neocons have spent two administrations trying to deracinate Islam, real threats to America's power have been neglected. Offshoring, which turns US GDP into imports and larger trade deficits, together with war debts, has eroded the dollar's status as reserve currency, undermining the foundation of American power.




RUMI KHAN, Pakistan - 01 November, 2007

NO ONE CARES FOR DISINFORMATION

I have read the whole article and I do not agree with its contents. There is a lot of difference between writers who write stories with out having ground realities and those who narrate their stories while sitting across the border.

I am confident that views expressed in this cover story are not the views of US government. If we go and look the history of terrorism in Pakistan, it was sponsored by the then US government to defeat the Russian forces in Afghanistan. Pakistan is an old ally of US government and therefore took the help of US government to wage a war against Russian government.

Consequently, Russians forces were defeated and left Afghanistan. US government won the proxy war fought by the Mujahideen of Pakistan in Afghanistan. Osama Bin Laden was one of commanders of Mujahideen and fought the war till the end with the support of the then US government.

Pakistan paid a heavy price for fighting US war in Afghanistan to defeat Russian forces. After 9/11 attacks, US made responsible Osama Bin Laden for the attacks on Pentagon and the World Trade Centre.

Since then, Pakistan is fighting war on terror for US government against Osama Bin Laden and his accomplices. Hundred of thousands of people have been killed so far by the terrorists in all major cities of Pakistan which also include security personnel.

Government of Pakistan has handed over hundreds Al-Qaeda activists to US government. The prevailing situation in Pakistan is not because that it is the most dangerous nation on the earth. The fact is that the gift of terrorism in Pakistan is given to people of Pakistan by the US government.

The ground reality is that at the time when NEWSWEEK published its cover story about Pakistan, on the same day the US Ambassador to Pakistan Ms. Anne W. Patterson came from Islamabad to Karachi and met with Benazir Bhutto at Bilawal House. She then went to the offices of several newspapers. Yesterday, America Ambassador went to meet the Chief Minister of Punjab in his Lahore office.

Had the situation been critical as described in NEWSWEEK in the cover story, how come the US Ambassador met with Banazir Bhutto, went to meet the editorial staff of several newspapers and staff of GEO TV station in Karachi. Yesterday she went to meet with the Chief Minister of Punjab.

The news of the visit of American Ambassador is published in all the leading newspapers of Pakistan. I would like to mention here that there is nothing special happening in Pakistan and Pakistani nation is not at all the most dangerous nation on the earth but the fact remains that NEWSWEEK editor(s) should try to find out and narrate the true story that who is the most dangerous man and which country in the most dangerous country on the world map?

The cover of Newsweek

We muslims are very emotional people, we tend to rush to conclusions. The right thing to do is to take this with a grain of salt and then perform a detailed self evaluation, the truth will come out. Something needs to be done to change the situation.

Pakistan second fastest growing economy of Asia ????? Pls give the correct source of this information .

Neo, United Kingdom - 03 November, 2007

Dangerous Country?

Pakistan is "dangerous" in a sence. A danger to America's dreams of World Conquest. It's no the fault of the Pakistani People, of course, it's the fault of the every greedy and stupid politicians. The most dangerous country in the world is obviously the USA! Who else has committed so many acts of aggression since WW2? What other nuclear power says,"We have the right, the RIGHT, no less, to make a Pre-emptive nuclear strike on anybody we want any time we want?" Now they have made a complete mess out of both Iraq and Afghanistan, and are in the process of making a complete mess out of Pakistan, based on the false charge that Taliban are terrorists! Taliban tried to warn them about the coming attack on America, for crying out loud! Is that how America rewards her friends? (Yep.)

Too bad the great Zia al Huq (appologies if I mispelled it) wasn't still around. I'm sure he would have told America where to shove it!

Why don't these fools realize that with their stupid policies, they are making the Terrorist situation worse, not better!

The American Media, with the exdeptions of a few here and there, are just loyal tools of the American Propaganda Machine. Ignore them! When you are a tool of the fool, you become a fool!

It's sad really. At the end of WW2, America was universally respected and beloved. Now she' a mass-murdering, deceitful, "Evil Empire" driven by Greed and a Lust for Power. And Pakistan and everyone else is suffering for it.

Saleem Khan, Pakistan - 04 November, 2007

Which one is Most dangerous country in the world

Question (1) which One is the Most Dangerous Country in the World with proof
As my opinion vs. Newsweek’s (Of Fareed Zakaria) Opinion.

Answer (1)It is pity that Indian Pakistanis or European have limited understanding of democracy freedom religion governace.If I have lived in USA Canada UK all my life and have been denied Democracy or rule of the law due to flaw in the judicial system governace system in defective constitution defective or prejudicial labour law and if I am going to die without ID without anything which constitute Law or governace then such a place is most dangerous in the world.To prove it that based upon competition skill education if I am above many others then I can safely say that such Indian Pakistanis who recommend above country to go to Pakistan and rule on behalf of Pakistanis or on behalf of Iraqis or Afghans or Turkey or Iran then either I have been lured to come to wrong place or others have monkey brain without knowing about democracy governace judicial or economy.As an example Say Canada is Most dangerous place to live in the world.Proof can only be given on one to one proof given and collection.

Question (2)Is this a calculated attempt to prove that Pakistan’s nuclear programme is not safe and may go in hands of extremists?
Answer(2) USA Canada UK are most dangerous people in the world to have access to NUKE economy WMD and access to UN to circumnavigate to terrorize( since acquiring
Power since WW1).

Question (3) Is this a move to pave the way for foreign forces in Pakistan?
Answer (3) those who recommend inviting such kind of foreign forces as above or from
EU or from None Muslim Countries should be rounded up and arrested. In Islam Ruler (elected ruler must be accepted) Traitor within Islamic country or none Islamic country are those who speak against the Govt with one exception such as I mentioned in question 1.In this case if proven even I should qualify for immediate rescue rather than be prosecuted.

America, the most dangerous of all

THE WORLD IS SCARED OF AMERICA AND EVEN THE FRIENDS CANNOT BE SPARED FROM TARGETING.

I WAS TALKING TO AN EX NATO OPERATOR OF ANTI BALLISTIC PATRIOT MISSILES IN SOUTHERN TURKEY DURING SECOND GULF WAR.HE WAS THERE TO HELP TURKEY. BUT I WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR HIM SAY THAT TURKEY COULD BE DEFEATED BY CHEMICAL WARFARE AS THE TURKISH ARMY HAS VIRTUALLY NO GAS MASKS AS PROTECTION AGAINST CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

WAKE UP TURKISH ARMY. DO NOT GO IN KURDISH AREAS INTO IRAQ UNTIL AND UNLESS YOU HAVE GAS MASKS FOR ALL YOUR TROOPS.

DOES PAK ARMY HAS GAS MASKS.

AND YOU BB, YOU ARE DANCING FOR PAK PM POWER SEAT, WHILE CARRYING FOREIGN AGENDAS FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT BE TRUSTED EVEN AS FRIENDS OF MUSLIMS.

BB YOU OWE EXPLAINATIONS TO PAK NATION ABOUT YOUR PROMISED HANDING OVER OF DR A.Q.KHAN TO THOSE UNTRUSTWORTHY FOREIGNERS SO THEY GET ALL THE SECRETS TO TAKE OUT PAK NUKES.

AND YOU BB,YOU WANT TO BRING FOREIGN TROOPS INTO NWFP TRIBAL AREAS SO THAT PAKISTAN BREAKS UP. AND AFTER ALL THAT ANTI STATE STAEMENTS, YOU WANT TO CLAIM THE P.M JOB.

ALLAH SAVE PAKISTAN.
