DAVOS - Pakistani PM Yusuf Raza Gilani, known for his mangling of the English language once again stood before the international media in what is becoming Pakistan's weekly "Progress Report to the world"..
Wringing his hands and whining that it is "unfair" for the world community to view Pakistan as a failed state,Gilani strongly proclaimed in unintended double-entendres:"Not only are we not a failed state we are a past state and as a past state we are on full life-support and the US is still not pulling our plug".
Asked for clarification Gilani rambled: You people are giving us F for failed which is totally unfair when we believe we are actually D minus and I am the true ruler of our D minus nation of which we are all very proud"
He said "all our vital functions are now somewhat functioning and so long as the world gives us highly-sophisticated weaponry, trillions of dollars and a blank cheque" Pakistan could continue with its charade of being an ally on the War on Terror.
Confronted by reporters on Pakistan's denial that the Mumbai carnage had Pakistani roots Gilani said "We want to be everybody's friend and we want to be India's friend and with friends like us why does India need enemies"
