Pakistan is part of an old-boys club in the West. It's part of the Great Game that we cling to from the Nineteenth Century, America having replaced Britain as the major player against Russian imperialism in the area. Now it's just unthinking habit. India, to an increasing extent, is a Modernist culture, and it is a natural ally of the West. Pakistan is a garbage Muslim terror state. India is our friend.
SALMAN RUSHDIE: It's Time To Declare Pakistan A Terrorist State
This time the facts speak too loudly to be hushed up. Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted man, was found living at the end of a dirt road 800 yards from the Abbottabad military academy, Pakistan’s equivalent of West Point or Sandhurst, in a military cantonment where soldiers are on every street corner, just about 80 miles from the Pakistani capital Islamabad. This extremely large house had neither a telephone nor an Internet connection. And in spite of this we are supposed to believe that Pakistan didn’t know he was there, and that the Pakistani intelligence, and/or military, and/or civilian authorities did nothing to facilitate his presence in Abbottabad, while he ran al Qaeda, with couriers coming and going, for five years?
Too bad that politics is left to politicians. If Indians were to attack Pakistan, we should all cheer and throw money at India till they win the war and beyond.
