in response to reader comment: You're finally right, Mansoor

The awards you gave in your words to my country are good for yourself.

The country called Pakistan is under test since long, the country is a buffer, an obstacle and a great perisher of every superpower. Not to forget that Soviet Union couldn't cross the western borders of Pakistan although it was well planned to reach the warm seas.. The minerals, the natural resources undiscovered in this part of the world always attracted big powers of the world to try their luck. Unfortunately for them, British, Soviets and now Americans met the same fate. The complexed terrain and abundance of natural hideouts made it a brilliant heaven for Guerilla resistance. The continuous conflicts and under perpetual fire of conspiracies, Pakistani people paid the biggest price every time when the war clouds reached its western borders. The influx of drugs, arms and most importantly the backstabbing by India made things worse as ever.

Amid all the negative points, Pakistani people now learned to face the challenges, with eyes into eyeballs and courage reaching the peak, the intruders, the conspiring minds are losing strings every day. The US economic turmoil and the world's biggest financial crisis made it easier for the Islamic resistant forces to overcome the ideas of the mad people who were dreaming to become the economically sole powerful nation.

Obama's victory would soon open new doors, it will help cooling down of false and artificial fear of Islam and would enter a new era when USA and Iran would resolve their differences, when Pakistan's problems are understood and realized that an enormous price this nation has paid to stop Soviet and fight for the war against terror.

I believe strongly that this nation would become a source of Islamic revival and a power to turn the table to destroy those who are responsible for the perpetual agony in this world. Long live Pakistan
