Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan- November 7, 2016

Pls forgive my naivety, and I know this was briefly mentioned on the last STFUP thread before it met its 72, but now they've announced and seem to have confirmed that the doddering old fool Sartaj Aziz is attending the Heart of Asia conference. Why is Indian Govt going to allow Pak to attend? Seems ...

Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan-13 June,2016

The border firefight is basically for 2 reasons. 1. Infiltration support on the Baki side. 2. Both Armies want to have the upper hand at the border and maintain izzat. Given that Bakis recently suffered a surgery they are more eager for a payback. Thanks Pankajs. Good point re Izzat - that would cl...
