    Britain to gift more counter-IED help to Pakistan

    Pakistan receiving gifted equipment from Britain to help combat improvised explosive devices.

    LONDON, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Britain plans to gift Pakistan spare parts and other equipment to support counter-explosive equipment previously given to the country.

    The intention to donate more than $1.5 million of equipment was announced earlier this week by Defense Secretary Michael Fallon.

    "I'm pleased that we are able to offer this support package as our counter-IED work is part of our close partnership with Pakistan and our shared determination to fight terrorism," Fallon said.

    "By working together, we will make our streets safer at home in the UK and in Pakistan. Pakistan has a rapidly expanding C-IED capability, with over 5,000 of its security forces trained, and more of these IEDs are being defeated across the provinces and lives are being saved. Pakistani battalions, who have benefited from UK support, have been operating for more than a year as part of the military's counter-terrorism operations."

    Britain last May completed a three-year program to help Pakistan develop a multi-agency ability to counter improvised explosive devices. Counter-IED equipment, including mine detectors, were donated to the country. A new three-year support package was then offered to Pakistan, which borders Afghanistan and which faces its own extremist threat.

    Misleading title. The title should be "Britain to gift more counter-IED help to Pakistan."

    Look at it this way - every major world power has some or the other kill-switch that they can flip on Pakistan.

    Seems that the Pakistanis have been fed some esoteric material, so much that they've started living in a world of delusions and falsehoods! Just check out the crap dished out by them on the internet...

    Best army in the world.
    Best fighter pilots in the world.
    Best special forces in the world.
    Most experienced in CI ops in the world.
    Best spy agency (ISI) in the world.
    Proud to be to be having the fastest growing nuke arsenal in the world.
    Rivers of gold about to start flowing in Pakistan due to the CPEC.
    And thus soon to become the fastest growing economy in the world.
    The UN will soon be headquartered in Islamabad.
    Pakistan won all wars with India.
    "Hindu banyas can't fight, so Siachen will also be captured" (Said by Gen Aziz Khan then Commander FCNA part of the 'gang of 4' while planning the Kargil fiasco!)

    And so on. These guys have really lost it! Jeeez! :crazy: Seriously, I mean WTF have they been smoking? Is Afghan weed freely available out there? [​IMG]

    Wrong title.

    How about
    "Pakistan begs From China , Russia , US And The West but India Don't.....!"
    or
    "Pakistanis are being killed by China , Russia , US And The West but Indians are not.....!"

    Even Japanese equipments are available to Pakistan (when they ought to not be). And they are used for admirable purposes.

    Is there anything in the arms market that is not on sale for India? From aircraft carriers to nuclear submarines. From largest transports available to fifth generation fighters. From the next gen tanks to next gen artillery systems.

    What else do you even need?

    Brits gifting some counter IED kits worth $1.5 million when they are offering their latest frigates, aircrafts and even their ACC to India. Talk about making a mountain out of molehill.

    There are nothing misleading in it.
    The post #1 is about Britain's to gift, but that is just a part of the old main title.
    What about rest...?
