wsj: What is Pakistan? ans: it is a nothing

mar 12th, 2009

hallelujah. praise the lord! after all these years, the white guys have figured it out. pakistan is merely "not-india". it has about as much viability as the equator (to paraphrase that old racist rascal churchill).

About Iran, Henry Kissinger once asked whether the Islamic Republic was a country or a cause. About Pakistan, the question is whether it's a country or merely a space.
What is Pakistan? Even now, nearly 62 years after its founding, the best answer is "not India": As with the Palestinians, Pakistani identity is defined negatively.
