Funny bizzare now...

We were right about the funny logic of Pakistan where it was ceding territory to terrorists and marking the spot with an X. Now they are attacking those spots themselves and will get tens of billions of dollars from the US government to improve it's "fighting capabilities" to fight those pesky terrorists. At about 100 million dollars per killed terrorist, we have the praise the folks who are doing the cost - benefit analysis here. A Pakistani terrorist killed by Pakistan in Pakistan is yielding a higher return for Pakistan then a Pakistani terrorist killed in India.

The next Pakistan initiated war will not go as smoothly as Kargil now. There will be much more to pay for India as all the US technology and logistical expertise pours in Pakistan. Not a bad deal for US too; India and Pakistan will continue to be locked in a death embrace much like the British had planned and hoped we would, pre-independence. One less potential superpower to worry about for the rest of the world.

India can only hope for the best and continue to be vigilant. And upgrade it's own capabilities in a non-corrupt fashion to match all the new US gizmos that would be hanging off a Pakistani soldier the next time they foray into India with renewed confidence and technology.

Pakistani Zar, Zari, Zameen

Who would have thunk that the "freedom fighters" would get Pakistani Zar, Zari and Zameen? As both India and Afghanistan close down their borders and there is no sympathy left for these militants, the cancer has turned on itself. After Swat, it is now Buner. Notice how they call them "fighters trained for combat in Kashmir"! Who trained them? The same masters that tell them that it is OK to get whatever they can in Pakistan itself, for now. Soon the military will swoop in with a fake victory and declare that Pakistan is "safe" from terrorists now that the terrorist masters are back in power.

Funny logic...

Pakistan has now virtually ceded part of the country to Taliban in anticipation of the impending US attack on them. The logic seems to be that they can give the US a visible target to attack in return for no action against the masters in Punjab and Sind. If I were an innocent family living in the new Sharia freedom areas, I would be packing my bags and leaving for urban Pakistan right now. Pakistan just marked a spot with a large "X" for the US.

The logic that Pakistan is a victim is a laughable one; they share the house and treat the Taliban with kid gloves whenever possible. The implicit understanding is that the violence will be directed elsewhere. But as the Pakistanis are finding out, terrorists seek the softest targets. It used to be Afghans and Kashmiris. Now that the drones are watching, killing local Pakistanis is much easier. The enemies enemy is not always a friend; he can turn into a worser enemy.

How to fight terrorism

As terrorists get bolder and bolder and more delusional, it is time to give them a reality check. Terrorists can never stop and will simply move on to the next target after one disappears. For example, terrorists elements within Sunnis go after Shias if they run out of other groups to hate on.

Here are the steps.
1> There are quite a few people, especially in the US, middle east and UK, that say, "We just send money to terrorist groups to get revenge". Report these people to authorities. Money is what drives terrorism.
2> Keep an eye out for people that have uncontrolled rage against other groups out of nowhere. These are the kind of people targeted for recruiting and action. Again, watch for the word "revenge". Report them directly or anonymously.
3> Watch out for people that say that terrorists are only against government and not the people. These are the people most likely to fund terrorists. Report them directly or anonymously.
4> You are likely to hear such words mostly from friends or other that share a common religious or ethnic background. Report them directly or anonymously. Terrorists are not followers of God, they are the devil incarnate. Hateful conversations from any religious group is bad.
5> Do not donate to charities unless you are absolutely sure what they do. Donate to Prime Minister or Chief Minister relief funds when in doubt.
6> Do not carry money on behalf of others when visiting India or Pakistan. Unaccounted money often ends up in the wrong hands.
7> Do not use hawala or unofficial channels to transmit money. The underworld fanatics get a cut out of those transactions.
8> Do not do unofficial bets on cricket games. Corrupt cricket officials get a cut out of those transactions and they are tied to extortion/terrorist groups. BTW, Pakistan will have a spectacular defeat soon just to mess up the spread, now that Javed Mian gets to select the whole team.
9> Walk away from conversations that are hateful. Terrorism begins in the intelligent mind and get implemented by mindless moron. Sindhi master, Punjabi blaster. (Reference: Mad Max movies)
10> Be the possibility of peace and harmony. This is the most important step. Ofcourse, kill a terrorist before he can do harm. But be an incarnation of peace otherwise.

Narrow mindedness competition...

Maharashtra and Jammu and Kashmir are winning the race to be the most narrow minded populace among the Indian states, with Assam and New Delhi close behind. In a way, these states get to have their cake and eat it too. The economic engine depends on the work and presence of outsiders and the contributions of outsiders, but by belittling their efforts and insulting them, they get to maintain their own sense of superiority.

The trouble with such interpretations is that you really start believing it and you cannot stop. For example, Iraqis are all Arabs, but they manage to find enough reasons to kill each other at every available opportunity. In a way, the Jammu Kashmir behavior is similar to the Iraqi behavior as they are mostly fighting their own ethnic kindred folks. Delusions have no end.

Our friendly neighbours find a terror fighting formula!

Pakistan has just found the solution to world terrorism. Now that Afghanistan, with US help, wants to do what Pakistan has been doing in Kashmir for 40 years, Pakistan almost sounds like India. They are having an epiphany about territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Afghanistan has been Pakistan's thrash dump for a long time. They unleashed the Talibs aka Taliban on Afghanistan years ago using their local Pashtun population and were proud of the end results. They are now turning a blind eye towards them within their own borders. Unfortunately for them, American eyes are sharper. Of course, nothing much is going to come of it. All the noise making will stop after the American elections are over.
