Deceptive Advertising Winner of the Year

Pakistan paid to have this ad in the NYT:

Yes, Pakistan has paid a mighty high cost in terms of terrorist attacks.  But that is where the phrase "Reap the whirlwind" comes in.  I feel bad for the ordinary citizen of Pakistan, but it is very well documented that Pakistan has been a sponsor of terrorism in India and Afghanistan.  There is much American, Canadian, Danish, British, Dutch, French, German, etc. blood on Pakistan's hands.

So excuse me if I call b.s. on this ad. Most of the problems Pakistan faces these days is due to bad decisions its government has made over the years.  So, the only ones really benefiting from this ad are the folks at the NYT, who could use the ad money.
