Dangerous but not prickly: Atlanticists

http://www.economist.com/opinion/displaystory.cfm?story_id=10430237

The limeys are finally conceding that "Desert Semites Like Us" Pakistan is dangerous ; although I have to laugh at the "with a proud tradition of tolerance and moderation".

Nice touch that grenade on the cover of the print version. Or is it a sunroof lever? It could also be a bottle-opener; for the times when James Astill goes out drinking with his non-prickly Pakistani buddies and they collectively wonder what is going on.

Hi Rajeev and others...

Well, just saw NDTV, where the World Business was being shown, and the gora anchor was standing in front of a set with a world map, and Indian map was defaced with parts of J&K shown as psrts of neighbouring countries.Such idiotic happenings, telecasted in front of whole of India....

Another news is of a J&K minister asking for seperate currency for J&K.

James Ass-still drinking with his paki buddies?
But i thought alcohol was haraam to mohammedans?

Notwithstanding that, i've worked with some saudis who drank like fish
