If India wanted to invade Pakistan, it would at least tried doing so in the last 65+ years (not commenting on whether it would have been successful or not). I think even the Pakistani Military Establishment recognizes this fact - although they would never acknowledge it publicly for obvious reasons.Can you ensure us that india won't invade Pakistan as it did back in 1971? And by the way do you think taliban will be defeated if we solely put our consideration into our economy
OTOH, if you (or any ordinary Indians/Pakistanis) still harbor delusions that Pakistan's growing N-arsenal is purely for deterrence and self-defense, it is time to open eyes!! Pakistan reached those deterrence levels long ago.
Pakistan's growing N-arsenal seems to have only one goal -- enforcing 'their version' of final solution for Kashmir problem on India when it feels confident enough of its capabilities.
Considering that roughly 20% of the entire world's population lives in India, isn't that poverty number (of 21.4% of total poor) proportional?
Not trying to deny that India needs to do a lot more to bring a large part its population out of debilitating poverty, but people here seem to deliberately forget the size of Indian population when quoting total poverty figures! Is it because it sounds more sensational this way?
