Tuesday, November 06, 2018

A bus service between Lahore and Kashgar (China), aiming to boost accessibility for the business community, was launched late Monday. The initiative will connect Pakistan and China via road under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Passengers will require a valid visa and ID card to travel. It will take 36 hours to reach Chinese province of Xinjiang.

The fare costs Rs13,000 for one-way and Rs23,000 for two-way ticket. Cheaper than plane.

Wouldn't want to ride this bus even if I was a paid participant. These are the types of trips which you end up at the bottom of a ravine.

Just because you are too dumb to get it doesn't mean everyone else is.

The whole point is that America's TPP, or whatever the frak it is called, is neither here nor there. It is neither dead nor alive and the US has pulled out of it anyway.

The One Belt One Road, on the other hand, is something you can feel, see, hear, touch and get tickets for. And this is only the very start.

The US can not compete against China, on the ground, where it matters. It just hasn't got the potential. It's not Asian. It's not resilient.

Any Huey, Dewey or Louie can show up on an open border. Even from a third country, like the US, which is an enemy of China.

Then they wouldn't have allowed this bus service, Cuckold.

And as far as Pakistan is concerned, try to get a visa. If you are American, it's next to impossible.

It seems Pakistan doesn't want filthy Americans.

Last time they did that, the country was flooded by people looking for weed or worse.

Try getting a visa to China (of you are American)... it is easier than getting one for Pakistan, but it's harder than for most other countries.

Looks like China or Pakistan don't want Americans to be part of the "one belt on road".

You're the one standing out in the rain, Afreekan. LOL

That's because no one is trying to do it. I bet that line is next to none. No one is trying to get to Pakistan.

Why would we want to be a part of that? It's not even our part of the world.

But let there be a refugee crisis in Pakistan (which is possible when the Pakistani Taliban start making more trouble).. You will see how quickly a border can be effectively shut.

According to the US State Dept. 50,000 Americans were given a Pakistan visa in the last 5 year. Ten times more were refused.

It's not even our part of the world

And it never will be. See how they are even taking the South China Sea away from you? LOL

They arent taking it away from us. They are trying to control it from the other West Asian nations in the area. And as we have seen, all the U.S. has to do is confront China militarily and they fold like a paper tiger.

I personally engaged the Taliban in actual combat maybe twice. I found them to be competent leaders and a professional military. They have resolve and decisiveness. That's what's needed when you are trying to win an insurgency. I would have left Afghanistan five years ago. The U.S. has completed their mission there. It's the people and culture of Afghanistan that doesnt want to kick the Taliban out. We should leave, there's nothing more there for us.

The Chinese throw numbers at you. They are not well equipped and cannot project power well. They are not a world power and the U.S. should make sure we remind them of that.

True.

At some level, Afghans want to be pooped on.

They are not well equipped and cannot project power well.

Not well equipped in what area?

The arena of China-US confrontation is economic and they are VERY well equipped for Economic Warfare.

As for the military, they have nukes. When you have nukes .. a full working TRIAD... your worries are OVER. There isn't $*%& anyone can do to you without destroying themselves.

They are not a world power and the U.S. should make sure we remind them of that.

They are the second biggest economy in the world.

Go ahead and keep reminding them of that until they become number one. LOL

The bus includes 5 stops before reaching the Chinese border and I think 5 more stops in China.

Motorway buses in Pakistan and in China are all air conditioned.

And as I said, no beer-stinky Americans allowed. They will never get a Chinese visa. It's all good.

One Belt One Road wants a train track too. And an oil pipeline from Pakistan's coast to Western China and beyond.

How are they going to do that across the Karakorm mountains, is beyond my imagination.

There is also a concept floating around of an under-sea road tunnel (and oil pipelines) that will link Pakistan and China with Saudi Arabia, through Oman. Plus oil terminals in Pakistan... no need to be trapped by Iran's Strait of Hormuz. To Hell with Iran and it's threats to international shipping.

Chinese are very very serious when it comes to One Belt One Road.

It's not about skin you racist idiot. It's about deodorant.

I have served with the Pakistani military. Try being in a MRAP vehicle in 100 degree heat with a Pakistani military member. It's like being riding in a car with the windows up in summer with no air conditioning and 30 cut onions in the seat. It stinks.

Pakistani's dont have perfumed deodorant. Much like the British colonists taught them. That's why you stink, even after you take a shower.

Pakistan is basically a country that is made up of 5 different cultures. At least 3 of them don't sweat. They have evolved to handle 50-C heat better than you can.

Here is a SIMPLE test that GOATMAN passed with flying colors.

GOATMAN (Allah rest his cyber-ghost), MUSTANG, LEFTRIGHT-DENTER, BOAZ and 2 other frakers whose names I am forgetting, have claimed that they had extensive contact with Pakistani soldiers or pilots or etc.

So you have noticed me saying "mate" now and then.

I don't say "mate" in normal Urdu/Sanskrit conversation. I use the Urdu/Sanskrit word for "mate".

What is it?

It is so common, anyone who claims to have been around Urdu speakers would know that word. Even if you can't speak the language.

And Google translate is going to give you the wrong word (husband/wife). So don't even try.

All of you are lying. LOL

As I said, GOATMAN passed the test in 2 seconds flat.

Since when? It's been a while since I was there, but never had any problems getting a visa to China. Just had to send in my passport with tha application and fee, and they'd mail it back with the visa inside. Did something change recently?

No idea.

but never had any problems getting a visa to China.

Your passport has Chinese visas from happier times in it. That makes processing easier. It is the first thing they check for... have you been to China before? Then you get a one year multiple entry visa easy (for example).

A first timer might experience a request for further documentation..

The National Bank of Pakistan has installed a cash machine at Khunjerab Pass at a height of 15,397ft, making it the world's highest ATM.

Looks like Doctor Who's TARDIS.....
