From proven provider John McCreary: "Most of the strategic decisions in the past 30 years have been aimed at making Pakistan more secure against India. Pakistan is now much less secure against India that at any past time. Moreover, it has failed to control the Islamist forces that it is responsible for unleashing. Pakistan is possibly the most dangerous place on earth."
