Idiocy Watch

Pakistani Daily Dawn's New Delhi reporter Jawed Naqvi presumes to caution India on its emerging American alliance.

Why? Because, he writes:

It is no coincidence that America’s biggest bugbears today — Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden — were once its key allies. If India were to follow Washington’s lead on global issues, particularly in the Middle East, it could end up being similarly trapped in a duplicitous bargain, most likely on the losing end of it.

So, let's get this straight. India is being compared to Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden?! Doesn't the comparison better fit America's frontline ally in the war on terror?!!!

How do these fools print things like this while keeping a straight face? Ironically, the same -- supposedly respectable -- newspaper carries the following editorial in the very same issue: Indian media’s blinkered perception. What's that about pot and kettles?!

Jawed Naqvi has been employed by Dawn only to give its Pakistani readers a 'rare' good feeling by somehow criticising/predicting bad for India.

Btw, is this Naqvi guy an Indian or Pakistani? Because in some articles I have seen him writing about Indian govt as "our govt".
