Mr. Clinton is about to visit Pakistan during his trip to India. Is he going to visit Afghanistan and or Iraq also? What is the US National interest in the visit to Pakistan ruled by a military dictator? Is not Pakistan illegally occupying one-third of Kashmir for the last 51 years violating the Security Council resolutions? Is not Pakistan, one of the two countries in the world, training & sponsoring terrorism? Does not Pakistan have a nuclear bomb built with foreign assistance? Does not Pakistan have missiles built with foreign assistance?
I recall Mr. Neville Chamberlain visiting Europe, in the early 1940s, meeting an (in)famous person and declaring Peace in the world. Is Mr. Clinton following the footsteps of Chamberlain to declare peace in Asia? Biased as US is towards to Pakistan, will there be peace if Clinton mediates and hands over Kashmir to Pakistan? Pakistani terrorists have penetrated various parts of India for the purpose of disintegrating India.
Pakistan was born with the declaration: We will take Pakistan without doing anything and we will conquer India by fight. May be Mr. Clinton and Ms Albright can squeeze in Nobel Peace Prize but Peace in Asia is a mirage as long as US supports terrorism in Asia.
