Re: Pakistani Economic Stress Watch

Bakistan is on a downward death spiral. Nothing can pull them out of that spiral now. Initially it will be slow, just like a large drain bowl being emptied the water level appears to be dropping only perceptibly slow but it gathers speed and when the end comes it will be fast. Extremely fast. Bakist...

Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

Any country loaning their F-16 to Bakistan *will* definitely ask something tangible in return. And they also know that such an attempt will not go down well with India.
