With a fresh wave of violent attacks in Pakistan that’s left dozens dead, this time in the border city of Lahore, the big question is when will the Army stage the next coup in the Islamic nation.
The Lahore attacks on the buildings of security agencies (Federal Investigation Agency and two police training centers) is the fifth attack in the last 10 days in Pakistan.
The repeated attacks by the Taliban on the security agencies serve to completely weaken and delegitimize the government in the eyes of the Pakistani people.
Past coups in Pakistan have usually been accompanied by the excuse that the civilian administration has failed to do its job (although it’s ironical that lately the attackers have made a monkey out of the security forces).
We’ll see how long it takes for the next coup to happen in Pakistan.
If the Pakistanis had any sense, they’d drop all that Islamic nonsense and merge with India.
If the Indians had any sense, theyâ€™d not accept the merge with the Pakistanis.
Pakistani Muslims can introduce the weak bladdered Hindu crackpots to circumcision and the Allahu Akbar screaming Muslim nuts can feast on our pork fried rice. 😉
Seriously, it’s a dream we have. Greater India, comprising of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
They were all one entity until the monumental folly and tragedy of partition, 62 years ago.
Will happen when SI’s made into soup guess what many would love to spill that soup into toilet
Go away, you rat.
SI Said: “If the Pakistanis had any sense, theyâ€™d drop all that Islamic nonsense and merge with India.”
Thanks, but no thanks. We segregated for a reason and that reason is still alive and kickin’ today. Both Pakistan and Bangladesh have succeeded in turning their “promised lands” into cesspools and have done nothing to better their situation. Why would India want to inherit two malignant tumors, while they have their own issues to deal with (as you so succinctly portray in your Incredible India section)?
SI Said: “Seriously, itâ€™s a dream we have. Greater India, comprising of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.”
Find another dream, mates 😀 .
1. You write: Why would India want to inherit two malignant tumors
Well, we’re hoping our Muslim bhais can spread the good word about circumcision to their Hindu brethren.
Circumcision is known to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer in women, reduces the chances of spreading HIV, reduces the chances of contracting syphilis, reduces the chances of getting penile cancer significantly (as much as 3x lower).
BTW, we once espied a Muslim youth (from a distance) rubbing his dick with a stone after peeing. Honest. Swear on SI readers, we’re not lying. 😉 And people say the Hindus are whackos for drinking Cow-ca-Cola.
The aforesaid moron also told us he liked English movies because the fights, blood and all were real unlike the Indian movies. We are not making this up. Something this weird is hard to conjure up. When the Muslim youth told us that, he’d already completed his Bachelor’s degree.
2. You write: Both Pakistan and Bangladesh have succeeded in turning their “promised lands” into cesspools and have done nothing to better their situation
Tis’ true that Pakistan and Bangladesh are no more than cesspools (India is only slightly better).
But their agreeing to merge with India would be an acknowledgment of their follies, a concession or surrender if you will.
Unlikely it’ll happen. Most definitely not in our lifetime.
Just a dream, as you said.
But, but….but who knows. Stranger things have happened.
Who’d have thought that East Germany and West Germany would collapse, the Yellow Monkeys would embrace capitalism or, horror of horrors, that Abhishek Bachchan would be a Bollywood star.
SI Said: :Circumcision is known to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer in women, reduces the chances of spreading HIV, reduces the chances of contracting syphilis, reduces the chances of getting penile cancer significantly (as much as 3x lower).”
The New England Journal of Medicine has articles that state benefits of both circumcision and non-circumcision. Really a tough call there.
BTW, I didn’t know that female circumcision reduces incidence of cervix cancer, but that’s hardly a valid reason to allow such a painfully cruel practice to occur.
SI Said: “BTW, we once espied a Muslim youth rubbing his dick with a stone after peeing.”
I’ve known them to use a brick for the purpose of being clean. I guess he, and others like him, didn’t get the memo from all-knowing Allah or Mohammad that urine is 100% sterile.
SI Said: “And people say the Hindus are whackos for drinking Cow-ca-Cola.”
Not sure about cow urine, but a lot of medical professionals drink their own urine (albeit in secret) for good health. No kidding. Morarji Desai famously drank it (and lived till he was 99) and now Lyoto Machida, UFC Light heavyweight champion, openly declared he drinks his first urine of the day (and he has a 15-0 record). Go figure. Let’s not forget the benefits of eating deer penis and other random animal body parts and insects, as per Chinese medicine. Somehow they don’t get that much bad publicity.
SI Said: “But their agreeing to merge with India would be an acknowledgment of their follies, a concession or surrender if you will.”
Acknowledge their follies to “infidels”? What did you smoke this morning, dudes? 😀
SI Said: “Whoâ€™d have thought that East Germany and West Germany would collapse, the Yellow Monkeys would embrace capitalism or, horror of horrors, that Abhishek Bachchan would be a Bollywood star.”
a. East and West Germans were Germans, first and foremost, and therefore had no problems reconciling, unlike Pakistanis, who feel a more closer attachment to Arabs who once loved kidnapping their 4-5 year olds and making them race camels.
b. The communism mumbo-jumbo didn’t have much mileage in it and the Chinese embracing capitalism was merely a matter of time. Plus, there was more money to be made from kickbacks from corporations wanting to set up industries in China.
c. Abhishek being a star was pre-destined largely due to his daddy-dear. No surprises there :).
1. You write: BTW, I didn’t know that female circumcision reduces incidence of cervix cancer
God, we aren’t talking of female circumcision here. That’s a gory custom practiced by the idiot Sudanese and other whackos.
Male circumcision is believed to reduce cervical cancer among their females.
So, if you love your gal be prepared to sacrifice some of your …. 😉
2. The Yellow Monkeys embracing capitalism was hardly a foregone conclusion until Mao disappeared from the scene and Deng returned from the grave.
3. You write: but a lot of medical professionals drink their own urine (albeit in secret) for good health. No kidding.

We’ll stick to our Orange shake with Soy milk or our other perennial favorite Perrier water.
(is there anything worse than Mozzarella sticks in life…was filling in gas a short while back and being in a masochistic mood purchased a box of that junk from that hot tray. Yuck).
4. We remember reading about export of camel riders from Hyderabad too (i.e. our version of that Crap-bad).
5. As for Abhishek Bachchan, that’s ‘Chronicle of a Disaster Foretold.’
Don’t know how long a way Pakis have to go, to sustain as a Nation.
Greater India – was also a dream of writers like Taslima Nasreen [as said by her in an Interview to a magazine].
Btw, was it true that Jinnah’s last words were – “Pakistan has been the biggest mistake of my life”?
You write: Btw, was it true that Jinnah’s last words were – “Pakistan has been the biggest mistake of my life”?
We’ve also read those ‘famous words’ from Jinnah.
Not sure if it’s true or a disinformation campaign by the Indians.
And, India is struggling to bring a Uniform Civil Code for everyone, including minorities. Don’t know if this is going to be even in the agenda, when Congress is in power.
If we merge with Pak and Bangladesh, probably India will bring Sharia Law 😉 instead of a common Civil code 😀
1. Congress pussies always appease Muslims.
Look at how Rajiv Gandhi caved in on Shah Bano case and made life difficult for Muslim women.
2. Wonder how long Pakistan or Bangladesh can sustain themselves as nations.
Pakistan has been surviving because we’ve (now, we refers to the U.S.) been pumping billions into their economy and military.
But we’re getting tired of all that money going down the drain, lining some dictator’s pockets or rogue elements in Pakistan military/ISI winking at the Taliban and Al Qeda. Plus, we (the U.S.) are in a deep financial hole ourselves now.
SI : If the Pakistanis had any sense, theyâ€™d drop all that Islamic nonsense and merge with India.
We have enough of them already – much more than the population of Pakistan …..we dont need more ……
1. Allah-o-Akbar. 😉
Don’t worry. It ain’t gonna happen. Not in our or even your lifetime.
Just an Utopian dream of ours.
2. Blame the Utopian dream on the combination of Gilbey’s London Dry Gin and Rose West India Sweetened Lime Juice we’ve been imbibing for a while.
Sooper-dooper stuff with a few ice cubes. 😉

It could be a disinformation campaign along the lines of the cre-tards (creationists) insisting that Darwin recanted his theory and found God on his deathbed. Then again, Jinnah’s dream of a modern, educated, and (probably) secular Pakistan has never been realized yet. Moreover, there’s that famous (quote-mined) speech from the MQM leader, Altaf Hussain ranting about how the Partition was the biggest tragedy of the sub-continent. Never mind the fact that he did end with the statement that both India and Pakistan were realities that people must come to terms with, that particular rant has made him public enemy #1 in Pakistan.
There are some things we’ll never know for sure. Like Jinnah’s post-independence views on partition, for instance.
All left to conjencture, confined to the realm of ‘did he really’ and ‘what if.’
Heard about that practice of female genital cutting, in those african countries.
It is gory and a half. When I read first in an article about Waris Dirie, one of the famous African Models, it was so disturbing. Extreme inhumanity in the name of customs and culture. It is still surprising how Waris could bear the pain for so long.
[Read the sections – Becoming a woman, and The welcome Surgery.] Ignore, if you have already read.
Inspiring and depressing story (link above). We hadn’t read this piece before.
And we thought Female Circumcision was primarily a Sudanese phenomenon. Didn’t realize it extended to Somalis too.
just read ‘The Waris Dirie Story’ (link above) and couldn’t help but admire the courage and the feeling of a divine intervention, even though overall feel is that of horror.
You write: just read ‘The Waris Dirie Story’
The woman is an inspiration to millions.
We’re still working on Rohinton Mistry’s magnum op A Fine Balance.
You reap what you sow.
For years, Pakistan has sent terrorists into India who have killed countless innocent Hindus. Now the same snake that they were feeding is biting them. I think they deserve it.
You write: Pakistan has sent terrorists into India who have killed countless innocent Hindus
That’s because the Indians are pussies, forever fighting among themselves that they have no time or energy to fight the external enemy.
For instance, look at last November’s attack on Bombay. They caught just one guy Ajmal Kasab and Pakistan continues to cock a snook at India’s requests to take concrete action against the masterminds.
Now even this bachcha Ajmal Kasab is playing games with the Indian authorities.
This Kasab episode is dragging too much and pity that these cowards (This will go down in history as one of most mediocre works ever by Security force and also judiciary) are still dancing to his bloody tunes
Behead that son of a Bitch ie Taliban style and send his head to pakistan
This bloody bastard doesnt deserve a trial
There’s something called due process that has to be followed.
