When the Slovak half of Czechoslovakia decided they wanted independence, the Czech half said go with God. Two countries were born where only one existed before without a single shot being fired or a rock being thrown. The two countries are respectful neighbors working together to make both countries stronger. Wow!!!

Is this your advice for the squabbling Indians & Pakistanis here?
I really am for peace with Pakistan. Even my responses to desperate mudslingers are purely defensive. And personally, I have some very good Muslim friends... knowing them actually makes me wonder, do they and the fundamentalists really worship the same Allah, and follow the same religion?
Some day, hopefully, we can all fix our myopic visions, and be like the Czech Republic and Slovakia!

With regards to India & Pakistan , I'm in for anything that does away with the meaningless gore in Kashmir .
But for most of the time I've held the view that we become united , as we once used to be !
Maybe I'm a fool

The subject of this post is quite funny, when we consider the person who started it :-)

When India decided it wanted independence from the British it was decided to partition the country into 2 halves. (By the then ruling Govt of the India which had not interest in it any further).
One was the Muslim half (Pakistan) from the muslim dominated areas and the other was the Indian half...welcoming all Hindus,muslims,sikhs,christian..etc etc.
Thomas if an analogy was intended then these facts should have been taken into consideration ...Czechoslovakia was not ruled by an outside govt looking to divide and sow hatred.
Secondly when such a division happens it is human nature to feel animosity towards each other. Fortunes were lost.Houses burnt because of the British policies and we still are suffering the consequences .
What do you have to say to that. In case you say we can sit and talk....weve tried . In fact when in July Mr Musharraf visited India(at the Indian govts request) ..he had no intention of honestly trying to resolve the issue. He came here just to have a flavour of being an Indian guest. And i think he was pretty pleased with it.

For 40 years, Czechoslovakia was ruled by the Soviets.
In any case, the British have been out of India for 50 years so it seems a bit childish to use them as your excuse. If you want to feel animosity toward anyone save it for the British and learn to get along with your neighbors!

Im sorry Thomas..
I was talking of the reason for partition and why it was not peaceful .And i think one thing buids up to another .
The British left but left a lot of things behind which have not been sorted out.

This commentary contains portions that I consider the most irresponsible of the ones I have seen in a lot of years. India and Czechoslovakia are totally uncomparable entities. While I do see and appreciate the spirit of that statement, the last line of Mr. Paul's argument(learn to get along with your neighbors!) boundlessly infuriates me. It projects a picture as though India is the one that is an unwilling ally for maintaining peace and harmony.
I don't have much to say regarding the British factor. Those paraistes (Yes! they fed on India for about 3 centuries) are largely (but not completely though) to blame for the creation of Pakistan.
It is common knowledge that it was pakistan that waged 3 wars agains India and is also a fertile breeding ground for terrorists who work against both Indian and American interests. If Mr. Paul is not aware of these facts, I implore him to come out of hibernaton before indulging in making stupid statements.
How in perdition can one live peacefully with such a nation?
I am positive that Mr. Paul will come up with a much more vicious tirade against anyone that urges The U.S.A to live in peave with Osama Bin Laden and his militants

What I said was addressed to everyone!!! Whether you are from Pakistan, Egypt, India, or Northern Ireland, or the USA it is time to put away your grievances and learn to respect all life even if the other guy doesn't look like you or practice your religion.
That means when terrorists attack government building in India, those terrorists must be hunted down and destroyed and countries, if any, that support those terrorists must be punished. But it also means that countries must learn to live with each other. Pakistan and India are not going away. The people of these countries must decide whether they wish to live with each other or destroy each other.

Such a great wisdown, so great an insight, which the people of two countries(for that matter, even the world) failed to see by themselves. Definitely something that every one should keep in heart, and live by.
