Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan-Jan 24, 2

Looks like Shyam Saran was wined and dined by the paki army, since he has been given a guided tour of pakistan by the Paki Army and ISI. Hope he choked on their hospitality. SS joined Australia's Lowy Institute last year, and is in charge of spreading of this stupid brain-snot about lovely Pakistan ...

WTH is appalling nonsense from Shyam Saran, and this tool is writing top secret papers on Indian defence strategy?
