Pakistan's ISI now claim they believe Militants, not India, are the greatest threat to national security

"The assessment, a regular review of national security, allocates a two-thirds likelihood of a major threat to the state coming from militants rather than from India or elsewhere. It is the first time since the two countries gained independence from Britain in 1947 that India hasn't been viewed as the top threat.

In the words of Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism expert at Georgetown University, the report is nothing short of "earth-shattering." To be clear, the ISI's findings aren't yet supported among members of the Pakistani military, or in the higher reaches of government. But keep your eye on this."

IMO: ISI probably have to say this as otherwise they would not be able to get so much foreign aid, which still probably goes into their pockets or to kill Indians. I bet Adolf Hitler is turning in his grave not to have had the chances ISI has. Whilst perhaps we can only expect many hick countries like Australia to behave foolishly - remember Cambodia ? - some Pakis are nice people and any genuine help to the sick and dying but decent can of course be approved of.
