    You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours - Part 2

    Richard Boucher, the Assistant Secretary of State in the government of the USA, was conferred the Hilal-e-Quaid-e-Azam award for his contribution to USA-Pakistan ties. This at a time when there's huge diplomatic pressure on Pakistan to act decisively & firmly to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism in the country.

    I fully expect we will be treated to verbose diplomatic speak which effectively translates to "Sorry India, we can't do anything about this Pakistani government except pray and hope you guys can forget about it and live together as part of one big happy family. These guys are acting on the terrorists! Promise! See, they even banned the organizations!".

    Part 1 was when Pakistan conferred a 'Hilal-e-Pakistan' award to a retiring World Bank chief when the bank had just appointed someone to review Pakistan's complaint over the Baglihar dam dispute with India.
