in response to reader comment: On a look out of weaker prey!!!

Check on wikipedia... Mansoor. Your country was about to run out of ammo, while India (unprepared, with confused ACOS) was about to clobber you:

  • India held 1,840 square km of your best territory, while you held 540 square km of our worst
  • India had 3,264 dead and 8,600 wounded from July to ceasefire; Pakistan lost between 4,000 and 8,000 soldiers during that period
  • India lost 128 tanks (mostly AMX-13 and Sherman), Pakistan lost 200 (a lot of them the top-of-line Patton, which was considered "better" than any Indian tank)
  • You almost lost your entire B-57 fleet in air-raid on Peshawar (admitted to by Ashgar Khan, who also stated that you were the ones who were stupid enough to start the war)
And on 1971, I checked with my Bangla (Chittagong Muslim) colleague--who says, you were about to get clobbered already by the Banglas, but your drunken Yahya Khan was the one who expanded the war (corroborated by Robert Payne, and also Antony Mascarenhas--a correspondent for Dawn) in the hopes of getting China and US involved.

Notable that you talk about "agony of 90,000 soldiers"--all of whom should have been grateful that they didn't get turned over to Mukti Bahini as war-criminals which they were.

Actually, your own policy of hate (especially expanded by war-criminal Zia) led to your own vultures (Taliban, and other problems you now face) coming home to roost!

... So far, you scored -500 points, while Thiagan scored 100 points.
