    They get together, laugh, joke, drink and party and then make a statement that all is well and Pakistan army is ready to deal with any threats. I am sure there was a statement that Pakistan army is prepared and ready to deal with any threats before the OBL raid also. How ready were they? Foreign forces came deep inside of Pakistan, stayed for three hours, killed a few people, looted the house, destroyed the remains and went back unharmed and undetected. Present military leadership is by far the most incompetent ever in the history of Pakistan. Thank you kiayani for making Pakistan army the laughing stock of the world.

      These generals you spoke off in a negative manner weren't always generals,they earned that rank,they worked years upon years,protected your sorry _ -_ _ so you can live.Know the truth,know the facts before you open your useless and unappreciative mouth and blame the army or the military in general.Did you know that the Pak air force did respond but were told to stand down.You want to blame someone,blame the government you morons had elected at the time.Americans did what was important to them in order to protect the people they serve.May be you should look into who all knew it in the government before you start pointing fingers.How many civilians go out there and help the forces to protect the people of Pakistan??? thats what I thought,

        Desi, don't take it personal. I am only pointing out the facts. These Generals take an oath to defend the country from enemies external and internal. They have failed to do so. They have misled the nation into believing that Pakistan army is stronger than what it actually is. They have never ever won a single war that they engaged in. They have been tasked to keep law and order in certain parts and they have failed to do so. For a foreign force to come in and stay for 3 hours is a pretty long time to go undetected. Not a single shot was fired by Pakistan army. Pakistan army's job is to "protect and serve". They do neither. They are rewarded very handsomely for their job. If it was performance based, they'd be starving. Civilians don't go out and protect because they didn't sign up for it. Military did. Instead of getting all emotional, debate the issue with me on merit. By the way, I, myself come from a family of military (mostly retired now) officers.
