    British invented Nawab and Sir titles for desi people to enslave rich and powerful landlords so that to get these meaningless titles they submit themselves on the feet of Queen.

    He may be awarded highest award because we are still using / preferring US made jets over other easily available jets from other countries which seriously crippling our capabilities.

    You can report all you want, but it won't change the fact. Deep down even you Pakistanis must be feeling the same.

    I mean just a couple of months back, the guy was talking about taking on the US forces, and today he is there accepting an award for God knows what from the very Americans with a grin on his face.

    These awards are bestowed upon for professional military matters on military to military dealings nothing to do with politics or policies of the state.
    Even a former Indian PM was awarded Nishan-e-Pakistan.

    Was just doing you guys a favour. I know you lot respect your armed forces way too much to say anything against it, let alone its chiefs.

    Tell me wouldn't you have preferred to read the news that US Armed forces decided to give the highest award to PAF Air chief Aman, and he declined it!

    He is about to retire in few days, the most that will happen is that he maybe invited to give lecture in some military related establishment in US.

    Asw,
    Which sort of idiotic philosophy is this.
    Indians were humiliated by Chinese in so many ways in Doklam yet they welcomed their Premier with open hands.
    Which word will they use for this??

    And most of all trolls like you have been shown the door so many times yet you come back again on our forums.
    Which word should we use for that???
    I mean whats your obsession with us. Why reaching a new low every time.
    Regards,
    Adnan
