Re: Terrorist Islamic Republic of Pakistan (TSP) - Dec 30 - 2009

Where is the fine line between being wise and appeasement? Dealing with terrorist supporters is not wise but the later.

Re: Terrorist Islamic Republic of Pakistan (TSP) - Dec 30 - 2009

I am afraid that the way the Pakis are humiliated now will make India more vulnerable to Paki sponsored terrorist attacks before or during IPL. Doesn't matter if they are humiliated, Pakis will always think of ways to inflict harm on India. Never try to appease a bully No question of appeasement --...
