    Boredom+ a possibly futile attempt to educate the needy.

    No hostility. Just educational. It is important to recognize that when witnessing stupidity the cycle can be broken with intervention...sometimes. It could merely be a cry for help .
    Just trying to help you out again.

    Conservatives dont hate. I went out of my way to help you out out of your rut by teaching you something. Thats the point. Fly and be free now. Get a job and dont watch too much TV. Opposing opinions are great. They either help you correct or reaffirm your own opinions. It is all about having an open mind and be willing to examine issues from different angles.

    You are welcome.

    Militants refuse to down arms despite Sharia deal

    "The government has strengthened Islamic law by establishing an Islamic appeal court, even though the militants have refused to lay down their arms.

    But as the government made yet more concessions, Sufi Mohammed, a former militant and leader of the Islamist Tehrik- Nifaz-i-Shariat Mohammed (TNSM), rejected the Sharia high court saying he wanted his own men established as judges.

    He had pledged to persuade militants to lay down arms but instead he addressed a rally calling the judiciary and democracy "un-Islamic". "


    When will people get the message that appeasment only encourages these guys?

    I hope Kalam stays free.
    Thank you

    This thread was started to dicuss the fact that the Pakistanis fought off a Taliban attack without US aid. They do not need our help. They are not dependent on us. But as our chief ally in the region we aid them. We do not need Pakistan as an ally. We are fighting on too many fronts and aiding too many countires. Let other countries find solutions to their own issues.

    Also, i am not an isolationist. I realize the Global Economy is far too complex for auch foolish thinking.
    Pakistani villagers cannot be counted on to repel attacks. They did it once, fine. But what happens when the Taliban comes back in force? Pakistan should be an ally, and we should be prepared to help them, if they ask for it.

    So if one of the Great Powers, say China, decides to invade Pakistan we should stop them?
    Hypothetical and i realize the odds of this happening are.....well WAY out there. But the question stands.
