    woo, excellent digout.It shows how much US support democracy in pakitan.I think Bhutto was the only leader who dared US and got the rob.Zia and Benazir also are the victum of same attitide.Either you are with us or you you are no more".
    Ayyub Khan was the mastermind of Bangladesh's fall and Bhutto and Mujeeb e unknowingly play the role of fecilitators.Had he being hanged at that time, we hadn't have the expereince of the adventures of Zia and Musharraf.

    But again its "be a part of system or leave the system(or leave the world): rule

    Anyone or any party speaking against US at the momnet is not because they are brave enough to voice their concern its because US don't take them seriously.The day it did they will know the real strength of their bladder.

    Can someone familiar with Pakistan's early history describe the background of this elaborate reception given to a Pakistani President? My guess is they tried to win us over before we fell into Soviet's lap.

    Thanks for sharing the video. I specially liked a confident speaker in gen. Ayub.

  4. ^Spot on. After a successful assassination (bearing all hallmarks of being an American plot) of Shaheed Liaqat Ali Khan, here they are trying to win over Ayyub Khan because Pakistan (a considerable market for arms), was buying for its defensive needs from the black market.

    America always maintained double standards. It promoted democracy in its own country and hypocrisy in the 3rd. world countries.

    So "this is how" "for ever" enemies "meet" .. "these days" ?

    Nice..

    I raise the question, where are those among Muslims who understood the value of, those fought for it, those who loved freedom ?

    Ayub was the president of a country which was twice the size of what Zia, Benazir or Musharraf ruled. It had presence in both Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea and was a larger economy and twice as strategically located as it was at the doors of East Asia as well as Central Asia.

    Obviously, the Cold war reasons remain in place as well.

    This is not Kiyani to Mullen but such communication probably occurs now too and the relationship definitely has not transcended past in time.

    Rest of letter.

    Good find....This is how good slaves used to be welcomed by the Yankees. We have become less important and more vulnerable and hence our "great" leaders don't get such treatment any longer. Shame on us for accepting such leadership!

    The crime list of the USA is very lengthy. One of the biggest crimes of the USA is to disturb the functioning of the UN.

    "look what America did to Pakistan in just 20 + years....next will be India"

    India hasn't learned the lesson. They will learn it the hard way.
