Britain, for long, has been the diplomatic lap dog of the US, and as such attaching any importance to the Btritish Prime Minister's speech will be an instance of misplaced optimism. Can Britain ever try to convince the US about our stand that Pakistan is the hub of international terrorism ? Can Britain make the US believe that its aid to Pak is being diverted to mount terrorist attacks on India?

2)Moreover, it is customary for the visiting dignitaries to talk about the international terrorism and show the sympathy for the affected countries to show that they also care. Even India does the same.
3)However, it does not mean that Brit ...more
