Yes, Pakistan has it's problems but the people who wrote some of these hateful definitions are ignorant brian-dead morons (most probably Americans) who are brain washed by Fox News
Yes Terrorists train there but they don't represent Pakistan's population like Bush represented America's population
Like any country Pakistan has its goods and bads
It is wrong to shun America on the basis that it was built on mass murder and theft of Native Americans
All in all it is a great country which has been fucked and destroyed by it's leaders, It had (still has) so much potential to become a thriving first -world nation
A country where people are more true to each other and to their land than any other place on earth. Their patriotism is devoid of spite for other countries and full of nothing but love for the land and the people.
A soveriegn country, where everyone is free to follow thier own beliefs. A moderate, balanced country that has never been particularly religious, but has instead been defined by it's rich cultural diversity and tolerence for all kinds of beliefs and customs! Long Live Pakistan! Long live Sindh, Punjab, NWFP and Balauchistan!
