Donald Trump is soon going to regret what he tweeted about Pakistan on New Year's Day, in accusing it of giving safe haven to terrorists, since Islamabad is poised to hit Washington with an asymmetrical counterpunch that it surely won't forget. The Pakistani government just announced that over 1.9 million Afghan refugees must leave the country within the next 30 days. read more

Foreign Se­cre­tary Tehmina Janjua has said that Pakistan will continue to have engagement, as far as possible, with the US because America is not only a global power but also has its presence in the region, and "for us it's almost our neighbour". In reply to a question, the foreign secretary said President Donald Trump's tweet on Jan 1 could be well thought out or he was just being his impulsive self, or it could be a result of any other reason such as the fact that the US is not doing well in Afghanistan. read more

The author of a controversial book on Donald Trump's White House says the the US president has "less credibility than perhaps anybody who has ever walked on Earth at this point". Michael Wolff, who spent months in Mr Trump's White House while researching the book, was responding to Mr Trump's claims that it was "full of lies". Mr Trump's lawyers had tried to block publication of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. The book has now gone on sale early. read more


In his 2008 bestseller The Limits of Power, from which the title of this article is borrowed, renowned American scholar Andrew Bacevich argued that the era of American exceptionalism after the Cold War was over because American "imperialism had over-reached" and could not be sustained.

Nice dodge.

Not a dodge. Simply asking myself if MADAM knows what she is talking about?

36 of your Navy people got killed.

Hmmmm.... "My" navy?

People in Texas got "killed"???

en.wikipedia.org

15 attackers killed 18 military personnel...

You seem to have a knack for exaggeration and outright lying, I've noticed. When caught "but OK THIS was what I meant".

Not good enough, my dear MADAM.

There was even a retalitory attack by Pakistan.

They killed the planner and his team 3 days later, in or near Afghanistan. So?

Do you still say it didn't happen?

I posted a link to the Wiki, but it seems you are talking to the wrong person.

This seems to be an unfinished conversation between you and RIGEL.

Go talk to HIM. Why drag ME in the middle of your lover's quarrel?
