    USA Military Expenditure $466 Billion!!! - I believe the other top 9 combined together is not reaching this figure...If so much money is not spent on Military by every country then human race could have colonized the outer space or achieved even more advanced scientific inventions for the benefit of humanity!!!

    1. Pakistan has a large military. The size of ex-servicemen is huge. GOP is doing good to employ them for nation building. Thus the reserves are also kept active and in positive vocation.

    2. Nations like PRC,DPRK, Turkey, Singapore,Taiwan, ROK and others have progressed due to national service which provides a disciplined and dedicated work force. Germans and Japanese are militarized disciplined societies. Military discipline is also the culture observed in their work place. These nations have, therefore, prospered.

    3. Pakistan should increase the number of non-military projects entrusted to the Services. Hospitals and agro-industries should be the encouraged. Hospitals will benefit non-officer ex-servicemen who are not authorized CMH treatment. Agro-industries will find jobs for the ex-serviceman near his home.

    Good to hear that Janab..
    my obsession with the brass would end the day I feel pride in meeting every General as I do for a few.
    Sade sheron ke upar Geedarh baithain that I CANNOT stand.
    Btw.. are you familiar with the "safeda" case in DHA Karachi? Thats a funny one:lol:

    And yes.. I am considering changing my nick to Belta.. but it just sounds weird.

    lots of people will not like this but to be honest Khyber pakhutnkhwa has been more neglected than Baluchistan. this was statement by world bank saying poverty levels are higher in KPK.
    secondly Baluchistan got neglected because till 1971 it was made of different prince state and after that nawab were given full freedom by marking those areas as B areas thus no development was ever possible. only Musharraf finished those areas but current govt reverted them back to B areas

    Most people, when criticizing the PA (which it should be, when it makes mistakes) forget that it is a product of Pakistani society. So the comparisons of the PA to the other institutions inside Pakistan are perfectly legitimate, as all of them are products of Pakistani society. While the Army represent the middle, lower middle, lower class people of Pakistan regardless of ethnicity, the politicians represent the 'Pakistan oligarchy', the upper & privileged feudal class that loots the wealth of the land, by exploiting the people of the land. Quite frankly, despite all the flaws the Army has, it represents the best of the Pakistani society. Ideally speaking, we all want the Army to focus on its military activities. And honestly speaking, it has done quite a splendid job, which is seen in terms of the rapidly decreasing terrorism violence inside the country. Now looking at this civilian government, we have gas shortages, electricity shortages, etc; which is all the fault of the Army, if the liberal ghairat brigade is to be believed. The people are fed up with the civilian government, with their constant failures. Even the non-military projects managed by the Army produce far better results than what the civilian regime has to offer.

    he's undergoing a few 'briefings' and deliberations

    i never thought i'd miss him either......even though (it appears) he's older than I am age-wise, i always felt like he was like that troubled younger brother. You can't hate him, you cant lay a hand on him. You just wanna pat him on the shoulder and pray he'll mend his ways.
