    ^^ True, but what will they do in Pakistan in investments? They're entering the country when everyone is running outside. Only Chinese remain there due to their taming of Pakistan against us. Russians should really reconsider business with a place that has no guarantee for power, infrastructure, safety, management of resources and customer base. 180 Million might be a decent market but with the kind of situation in that country, Medvedev is really making a big mistake.
