Patriotic Trolls

this_is_the_internet

I don’t usually talk about the India-Pakistan issue, but what I find really annoying is that on sites like the Express Tribune and Youtube, on every damn post, video or article there is always some guy (whether Pakistani or Indian) who re-instigates the Pakistan vs India ideology and begins a comment war. For example here is a potential provoker:

This is usually followed by an accusation of the commenter being an agent of the enemy:

The battle rages for several months, even years, until both sides are exhausted. At first the commenters (almost) make sense. They outline the geo-econo-political issues faced by both countries and give their (apparently) unbiased opinion on which country is better.  However, the comment stream gets increasingly idiotic as time passes. In the end it consists of a couple of meaningless, retarded, racist and abusive phrases repeated again and again in CAPITAL letters.

All these comment wars do is prove how retarded both countries are, to the rest of the world. It doesn’t really help anyone. In fact, it can’t even be called patriotism, it’s just fanatic blundering. Seriously, people! Grow up. What’s done is done, and you can’t change the past. However, you can help build a better future. It is estimated that free-trade with India and a co-operative economic policy can increase the GDP and HDI of both countries drastically. So basically, you’re just harming your own country by these fights. Think about it.
