US is only interested in Parkistan to make sure Iran does not have access to Parkistan's N bombs. ... Which unfortunately wise Imran have offered to help protect Iran during his official visit to Iran ... And now actively promoting possible dialogue between Iran and Saudi which US has succeeded to divide and rule. Parkistan's pursuit of peace among neighbours and unity among Muslims is fast diminishing US Geo political dominance and destruction in the Middle East. Imran Khan is perceived and respected as an honest and impartial ambassador of peace to the US war ravaged middle East.
US has no genuine interest to improve the lives of parkistanis over Indians or others.

Pakistan don't need to worry. It's got Imran Khan(should do a video on him).

Only way Pakistan can truly become a better economy and country is by avoiding both US and China. They both will use Pakistan on their own interests and time. Pakistani people must invest more in education and stop their long failed policy of terror export. It will continue to submerge Pakistan even deeper

Basically, Pakistan cannot be by itself even if it wants to be and both the US and China using it as a buffer state to demonstrate their supremacy. The only people who are going to suffer are going to be Pakistani citizens.

The USA loaned Europe money for rebuilding. After Europe could not pay the USA lent the Europe and more money to pay back old loans thus keeping the Europeans in usa debt

Pakistan should kick out both countries.
But I know our leaders are too greedy and corrupt to do that.

It wouldn’t be smart for Pakistan to align with a country with a history of enslaving browns.
khan Khan
Obviously China is good usa is not

indians always living in delusions. Pakistan cannot be anyone's slave, Pakistan has its own well defined goals and if our interests align we are friends. our interests aligned with US in Afghanistan against Russians so we were friends. now we are not. they gave us billions too , are we their slaves? if so why are we working against their interests. and you talk about balance of power . we can cut off china from Arabian sea , what are they going to do invade us? well if you think this is a possibility then you are too dumb to argue with but even if that happens, west will not let go of this opportunity to strike a blow to china and we can expect full support from western countries. Pakistanis stayed relevant in world politics only because of our ability to efficiently manage our options
pakistani pz

The country is in chaos, but its leaders aren't going anywhere.

Correction at 1:58: It’s been brought to our notice that the Supreme Court tried to strip the country’s National Assembly of its powers in March 2017 and not 2016. We regret the error.

The collapse of Venezuela and President Maduro's rise to dictatorship.
Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America.
It has the largest known oil reserves in the world. And its democratic government was once praised world wide.
But today, Venezuela’s democratic institutions and its economy are in shambles.
The country has the highest inflation in the world, making food and medicine inaccessible to most Venezuelans.
Over the last four years, its GDP has fallen 35%, which is a sharper drop than the one seen during the Great Depression in the US.
The country’s murder rate has surpassed that of the most dangerous cities in the world.



These conditions have sparked months of protests against the president, Nicolas Maduro. And it’s easy to see why: the country has become measurably worse since his election in 2013.
