Pakistan needs US intervention to help in early World Bank programme as well as direct US aid in this turbulent time. After all it was US that sustained Pakistan throughout past decades to sustain.

Hope Excellency Bloom convinces our Government of Pakistan to get assistance in basic agriculture and irrigation. USA is a giant in agriculture. Instead of begging for cash and weapons please beg for high quality potato seed , small size implements , inexpensive fertilizer, packaging and storage facilities. The debt hole we are in is just too deep to crawl out anytime soon. Best fix is to completely stop borrowing till old debts are paid off … maybe “ in the year 2525”!

I suggest government to take steps to reduce imports burden by introducing bicycles instead of bikes and motor cars stop tea imports for two years and all unnecessary items ban import of all kinds of cars. Take back all kinds of luxurious cars from all government servants,judges generals and ministers and give them Suzuki cars for use in this way we can save a big chunk of foreign currency and trade deficit will be nill InshaAllah

Blome gets his weekly dose of lies. All US envoys are given special training to digest this disgusting servile blabbering with a smile and carry on as usual.

To deal with China, Iran and the US at the same time is a very tricky situation.
