Why of al-quida,minor details of Ossama?who they r fooling and who Uncle Sams r fooling?Even U.S.A. knows very well if Pak is asked to behave ,then d terrorism in world will be lessened by 99%.What Hillary said is a belated foregone conclusion,nothing new in it.Now the noble Lauratte Obama has 2 find reason in acting on this.America can precisely attack targets with Drons,but dont know what Pak is doing.Whom they r kidding?

What Mrs. Clinton told Pakistan is, Stop protecting Al Qaida. For quite sometime, this was known that Pakistani establishment (sections of army & ISI) are hand in gloves with the terrorists. The US had been tolerating it since they needed access to Afghanistan and also Pakistans co-operation to fight Taliban. So they had been keeping quite; it seems the US has reached a stage when they feel enough is enough. US also realize the danger Pakistan poses to the world, She has also said indirectly not to raise the bogey of Kashmir for continuation of terrorism and normalize relations with India. She knows that Pakistan will not like such talks, but Pakistans survival depends on American money; therefore ultimately Pakistan will have to toe American dictates.
It is also a fact that the US once supported terrorism both in Afghanistan and Kashmir because both USSR & India were considered to be their enemies. Now things have changed and America requires support of both Russia and India to cont ...more

The whole world knows that :) But Hillary Clinton should also acknowledge that it was short sighted policy of the US in the 80s of combating Communism using any means possible which produced Talibans. The US even PAID people from as far away as Yemen & Sudan to join the "Afghan Mujahideen."

Now. Mebbe Communism is not idealism, and was rough on Afghanistan. I concede. But at least u can TALK to a communist.

US is also somehow trying to disassociate itself from creating the Talibans in 80s & is trying to jettison that whole episode on Pak. Pak knows where Talibans are and they don't wanna tell us. Fine. But WHO CREATED THOSE TALIBANS THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE?! The US should admit responsibility here also I feel.

The Soviets supported the Viet-Cong (VC) forces in Vietnam, but those guys were united by nationalism not by religion. Amassing religious forces into a disruptive force to engage a secular society has been the hallmark of US cold war foreign policy.

What she has said is true and Pak too knows it .Sept 11 did shook the world and Americans the most .They realized that a snake always bites irrespective of who feeds the snake .Pakistan on the other hand is stuck .They live in a false world and believe that they are right .They defy every logic .Now things are hotting up for them .Their bottom is burning and they are desperatly trying to blame India for the position they are in .
