All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

Probably because it’s TOO ACCURATE, Pakistan
Not exactly unexpected.
Pakistani govt pissed off because ‘HOMELAND’ series identifies them
and their govt as HATING the USA and allying with Islamist TERRORISM
This American, by informed macro-observation and some micro
experience, has long maintained that a VERY large % of the Pakistani
people are inimical to the American people and our way of life. No
matter what one can say, long before drones, long before 9/11, Zia ul
Haq and his ISIS, who understood PRECISELY what they were doing, created
the Taliban and welcomed Al Qaeda and their seminal creators, Abdullah Azzam,
Ayman Zawalhiri, and OBL. Fiction which then shows the Pakistani govt,
it’s ISI and Foreign Minister complicit WITH such people in the murder
of Americans, and the attack on the American embassy is not only
It happened. 1979 SEVERAL TIMES
Claire Danes is lucky no Emmy voters live in Islamabad.
Pakistani officials are furious with Showtime after watching the
fourth season of its hit show “Homeland,” which they say portrays their
country as an ugly, ignorant, terror-plagued “hellhole.”
The diplomats took copious notes of every slight while binge-watching
all 12 episodes — including the lack of greenery in the depiction of
the nation’s capital, Islamabad.
They complained directly to producers of the Emmy-winning drama, but their gripes fell on deaf ears, Pakistani sources said.
“Maligning a country that has been a close partner and ally of the US
. . . is a disservice not only to the security interests of the US but
also to the people of the US,” Pakistan Embassy spokesman Nadeem Hotiana
told The Post.
“Repeated insinuations that an intelligence agency of Pakistan is
complicit in protecting the terrorists at the expense of innocent
Pakistani civilians is not only absurd but also an insult to the
ultimate sacrifices of the thousands of Pakistani security personnel in
the war against terrorism,” a source said.
“ ‘Homeland’ makes it seem that Pakistan has contempt for Americans and its values and principles. That is not true.”
