I love the whole "But Muslims are not treated worse then other minorities argument.That might be true ...the Hindu fanatics don't like Sikhs or Christians any better...(not enough Jews in India for them to dislike) but that is a pretty damn poor defense.
Actually, Jews have been targeted in India. Mostly recently at Chabad House in Mumbai by Pakistan-based Islamic terrorists Lashkar-e-Taiba.

As for airstrikes ON Pakistan, would you argue that the US mission to kill Osama bin Laden was an attack ON Pakistan? I seem to remember some sarcasm about how if Pakistan though the operation was an attack on them it could only mean that they had some allegiance with Osama bin Laden. And when asked why the US didnít just co-ordinate the attack with Pakistan that it would be like entrusting their information with Jihadi intelligence.

Or are you displaying that unfortunate American trait of American exceptionalism?
