          Porki's want India to stop deployment so that infiltration should start again. Let there be no lt;br/gt;reduction of vigil and tightening of border controls.This is no way of reducing 'tension' with morally and financially bankrupt failed state which only understands force.

                Nawaz Sharif and his stan has only one strategy of crediting tension on LoC to Kashmir issue. They have no way left with any other issues. There are no or few takers to this fabricated issue which should not be international used by Pak. Better if they learn a lesson in my interest of stability in the region.

                  Law of attraction says if you hate one you will receive hate in return. Think what you are teaching to your people and you will know why every nation hates PAK. Lean to Treat every one equal irrespective of religion.

                      Janab Aziz, first hand over Azhar Masood before beginning of any talks. Second, no pre-conditions. We India will set pre-conditions. Third, destroy all terror camps or India will unilaterally do that. Enough is enough we cannot trust you any more.

                              Pak must stop talking Kashmir and get out the of the area illegally occupied by them. Period.

                                Mr. Aziz, as long as you send terrorists this will continue. As you already threatened to drop nuke bomb, do it. So that we can wipe out stan from world map. Use yr brain or else face music.
