Pakistan can't even survive unless pennies are thrown into its beggar bowl, and you think they are going to buy New Sumbarines?


A beggar nation like Pakistan was rejected the HDW's from Germany, because of their terror sponsoring activities, and you think the French are gong to provide you with the Marlins?


Isn't an investigation going on about French Arms Diplomats being killed by Paki ISI for not bribing Pakistans Officials.


Hahahah

Im amused by the simplicity of the Paki mindset. Madrassa education can do this to Beggars.

China will have to provide not only the submarines but also the money. . What a sad little -stan. India should start exporting its commodities at heavy discounts in the international market to totally destroy this transient jokey nation.
