But BEFORE they use the N-word, should they not get their F’s straight? Just saying! Well, Pakistan is ranting about its superior defence forces and nuclear arsenal. Take a look at Mukesh Ambani’s wealth, one of the richest men in the world. Now, he can really buy the armed forces of Pakistan! [...]
