ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's powerful army chief General Raheel Sharif has warned India of "unbearable damage" if it tried to impose a short or long war on his country.
"Let me reiterate that our armed forces stand fully capable to defeat all sorts of external aggression.
"If the enemy ever resorts to any misadventure, regardless of its size and scale — short or long — it will have to pay an unbearable cost," he said in his address at a special event organised by army at its headquarters in Rawalpindi on Sunday to mark the 50 anniversary of the 1965 war with India.
The remarks were a pointed response to a statement by Indian Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag who said last week that Indian Army was prepared for "swift, short nature of future wars".

But Pakistan won't have to pay any cost. Because to do so it should exist after the war and of course there won't be any Pakistan after war.
Good joke, I call it humor in uniform
Pakistani Army chief shows his frustration....He know his capabilities and shouting on the backup of China....Bagger Pakistani....

See the difference. Indian Army Chief has not named any Country while mentioning about the War, but Paki Army Chief has directly mentioned India.

Indian economy is much stronger than of Pakistan. Don't live in fool's paradise. Just look at ANY data on size, growth rate of gdp or per capita income.

India is not trying to impose any war on Pakistan,India is only defending It's severienty from terrorists. If Pak understands this a war,then India is fully capable to defend any attack by Pakistan. Pak should stop cross LOC war by terrorists.
May be he wants Nawaz Sharif's Chair ! Who Knows ? ! that's why so tall claim ! He wanted to be Hero in Pakistan !
If IMF and world bank tightens screws on these people.. then Pakistanis will beg on the street... Pakistan has just 3 months worth of money for import.. even a long time standoff will drain out it's money...

WHY HELL WE WANT TO TALK WITH GUYS, INSTEAD WE SHOULD KEEP OUR DEFENCE WELL PREPARED
Just keep the borders sealed up. Pakistan will self destruct itself.
