Eldorado

"Pakistan has reached an accord with the International Monetary Fund for a three-year, $6 billion bailout package aimed at shoring up fragile public finances and strengthening a slowing economy, officials said on Sunday."

"The deal, which still needs approval by the IMF board in Washington, would be the 13th such bailout since the late 1980s."

It's very telling when you think about it. Iran is under sanctions and is labeled by some as ''leading state sponsor of Terrorism''.

Pakistan on the other hand is sort of hive of terrorists, for decades the state did not have any control over large areas in the country and even osama bin laden was living there for long time, raising a family and all, you know :D

Is this some joke... Oh, i wish it was.

Who in their "ultimate wisdom" thought that giving Pakistan nuclear weapons was a good idea?

China is accused of it.
