This is Pakistan for you. It is unfortunate that the USA and many other countries still think that #Pakistan represents the moderate Islam in Asia and prop it up with weapons and finances, in the mad hope that their nuclear arsenal will not fall in the hands of the Taliban or at #ISIS. In the process, they ignore #India, a democratic, liberal, peaceful, pro-western country, the only one that can stand against Islamic terrorism and Chinese bullying. And this has been going for 5 decades! FG
