原文标题：Pak's change of guard worries China
BEIJING: The Pakistan Peoples Party's (PPP) choice of Raja Pervez Ashraf as the candidate to replace the disqualified PM Yusaf Raza Gilani is that of a stranger to China, the country Pakistan refers to as its all-weather friend.
Raja Ashraf in his maiden speech to parliament on Friday used the standard hyperbole that Pakistani politicians reserve for China. "Pakistan's friendship with China is higher than mountains and China has helped us in every hour of need and we would further enhance it," he said.
However, the Chinese leaders though have strong reasons to worry about the changed circumstances in Islamabad. Ashraf is almost an unknown commodity to Beijing and he would be the first Pakistani PM since the Nawaz Sharif regime in the 1990s to be in that unchartered area with respect to China.
Ashraf has not visited Beijing in the past several years. This is significant because Pakistani politicians including President Asif Ali Zardari and former PM Yusaf Raza Gilani have been visiting China several times a year and developing their relationship with the Chinese government and the Communist Party's different agencies.
Gilani's departure is a huge loss for China because it has invested heavily in developing a close relationship with him and with Zardari. Beijing is said to be seriously-worried because Zardari's future remains in doubt.
The changing situation will be closely-watched in New Delhi because China banks on its relationship with Pakistani leaders to work out strategies concerning its relationship with India. Pakistani is known to get encouragement from China to continuously to harp on the Kashmir issue to keep India under pressure. The Zardari-Gilani tenure has seen Pakistan coming closer to China and drifting away from the US.

When pakistan was established in 1947, a noble muslim saint in afghanistan saw a dream that india will be conquered by a muslim army consisted of arabs and non arabs in 2014. Most of noble hindus will accept islam willingly. China will support fully to this islamic army.

And in 2012, it seems otherway around. Pakistan is a laper state, living day to day on American handouts and crawling under Chinese feet for protection. Your Muslim saint was as wrong as your prophet Mohammad.

I hope good sense prevails on new PM and he is friendly with India. Pakistan has tried all wrong means to destabilize India, let them this time try the hand of friendship and trust and see how it progresses. In fact I would like to go one step ahead and form USIS ( united states of Indian sub-continent ) let India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives join into one big nation.

Whether Pakistan joins India or not, but this line of thinking is good for Pakistan's own benefit. There is another myth in Pakistan that they think they are Arabs. Wish you have opinion about this too.

I don't think so. Pak has become extra burden on their shoulders. They hv already started correcting their foreign policies. The new situation will help them to distance themselves alittle more which will help both countries.

Religion is the creation of man and has been done to develop understanding and harmony among humans to respect and help each other. But it has defeated it's own purpose and has infact developed hatred among brothers, people and countries. This in itself signals the arrival of end of mankind. The laws of nature ensures destruction when insanity and hatred dominates human mind.

I suspect this to be the latest gameplan by the Chienese ... this time they have simply nominated their candidate on Pak throne as Gilani was getting intolerable and China was slowing down with its kill India policy.

The Chinese are manipulating Pakistani political leadership to keep India in check. Pakistani jokers, without realizing this, spent billions on defense build up to fight an illusional war against India. It is sad that this country is spending a substantial share of its GDP on buying dud missiles from China instead of focusing on buidling its economy.

The Western nations are manipulating Indian leaders to keep China in Check. Indian dolts, without realizing t his, spent billions on defense building up to fight a delusional war against China. It's sad that India is spending a substantial share of its GDP buying obsolete weapons from Russia and the US although 25% of its population are still illiterate, 66% don't have access to even public toilets, and having an infant mortality rate which rivals that of dysfunctional African nations.

Hey Paki, why can't you use own identity instead of using a false ID? Your leper state is a stinking pit, which is polluting the whole world with your hatread, fanaticism, and homophobic ways. A disgrace to humanity!
Indian (Chennai) replies to ChinaFTW
You are not Chinese. The thoughts and language used is typical subcontinental. A Chinese will never ever say "dysfunctional Africa". Neither his Confucius ideals nor his political upbringing will allow to speak that way.

China will realize the consequences of friendship with Pakistan once their country starts to get infiltrated by Pak trained terrorist which already on a small scale started to happen with the Muslim Uighurs in West China.

Tactical friendship can only achieve shorter objectives. China would slowly start realizing it since Gilani' exit teaches them that little lesson!!..

China represents everything that the muslim god hates: The Chinese are mostly atheistic and agnostic; they eat lots of pork; they eat normal meat without bleeding the animals alive slowly and painfully; Chinese women enjoy complete freedom and equal rights in society, and wear whatever clothes and makeup they like; Chinese women go to work like normal human beings; all Chinese enjoy music, dancing, singing, and other forms of entertainment, etc............. The Pakis are forever raining curses on India for much smaller crimes than these; that Indians show respect for cows, etc. When that is the case, how could the Chinese imagine that the intolerant Pakis could possible love them after all these "horrible crimes"? ..........The Chinese have foolishly allowed Pakis to flood into China with free scholarships for "research", etc. Many of these Pakis would be nothing but sleeper cells, waiting for the holy signal from their "loving and merciful god" to unleash a devastating "holy war" inside China. It's just a matter of time.
