The US has suffered because of the duplicity in its so-called “ war against terror” . Pakistan has taken billions of dollars from America for its flimsy fight against terror, while it has nourished and created new universities of terror . the terrorists have done great damage to the American efforts to bring peace in Afghanistan – Taliban is not a proxy of Pakistan , it is direct face of Pakistan army .
India , has suffered from Pakistan sponsored terrorism.
