Pakistani Prime Minister said the country was ready for war and its army would respond if attacked by India or “any superpower,” during a speech in Chachro, in Tharparkar District on Friday.

“If someone, if it is India or any superpower, wishes to enslave the Pakistani nation, I want to make it clear that my nation and I will fight until the last breath to save our independence,” he said. “Keep in mind; you will receive a befitting response from here.”

Tensions between Pakistan and India, two nuclear-armed countries, have been rising in recent weeks, since a Pakistani based militant group killed dozens of Indian soldiers in a suicide bomb attack on February 14 in the Indian-controlled part of the disputed Kashmir region. India responded on February 26 by sending fighter jets into Pakistan for the first time since the 1970s.

India has long accused Pakistan of allowing militant groups to operate in their country. In his Friday speech, Khan said the country had a policy not to allow militias in the country, which his administration would implement, unlike previous administrations.

“Unfortunately, this policy was not implemented in the recent past but after we came to power, we decided to implement the National Action Plan,” said Khan.

Well this is the main problem with dumb leaders who make bravado statements and how they mislead their country by tally proclaiming they are ready for war.

How can Pakistan be ready for war just because they have nuclear weapons? War means you should have huge & surplus economic reserves to fight conventional war fare. Russia or US never dangled the nuclear weapons any time unlike Pakistan does it every time they open up the chess match.

As per THE EXPRESS TRIBUNE PAKISTAN’S NEWS PAPER Pakistan’s external debt is to climb to $103 billion dollars by June 2019 as per IMF report.

US$200 to 250 million is required every week to cover imports and debt servicing payments. This translates to US$1 to 1.5 billion a month. In other words the monetary injections from Saudi Arabia, UAE and possibly China are being depleted faster than they are being received.

Pakistan’s neighbors Iran, Afghanistan & India all are pissed off with the Jihadi elements Pakistan uses as Cottage Industry. Afghanistan has been bleeding over decades. Iran too recently lost over 27 Border Guards on Feb 17 who were martyred by Jaish Ul-dl Jihadi Group from Pakistan

The NATO “Able Archer” drill was so realistic that Soviets have put their nuke forces in red-alert and since they ended with a false positive radar echo, they were very very very near launching!
