    Pak Navy was considered as a weaker link among rest of the 3 branches. This addition is good however i just hope Pak wouldnt have to pay an arm and leg for this

      If we keep at this pace. Beijing will be our capital in no-time. Because unlike Sri Lanka, we've let them march through Pakistan.

      It's a shame that our leaders can't speak up against China and Saudi because we've allowed them to become our overlords.

      Our image in the international community is the absolute worst of any country.

        there are very few people who think this way. If you talk to masses in Pak, they are willing to give away everything to China or anyone they call as their best friends. They have no clue how chinese play their games. In the end we are a emotional nation. Thats how it'll always be.
