PacificSentinel: Yawn! They can keep saying that "Pakistan has suffered the most" but you have to remember that THEY created the situation in the first place, so no sympathy is deserved, and so long as they continue to let the Taliban use their territory to attack Afghanistan, none will be given. It's just a pity the Civilians have to pay for the Government & Militaries stupid decisions.
