Terror finds harbor,

Nuclear back stab?

Ja, but if you look at it a certain way, it's a smiley face! Not that I, as a woman, would ever be allowed to do so. Ahem.

Nicely done. "Nuclear back stab" is brilliant; but is rayed meant to be pronounced ray-ed?

Pakistan is just one of several countries thattakes our money with one hand and plots against us with the other.

Now I see it as an upside down parachutist. The difference between men and women. Bwahahaha
Yes, but I didn't know how to do it. Do I put 2 hypens in a row, add an apostrophe or leave it plain? Right or wrong I chose the last.

Hmmm . . . I don't know if you have to do anything special. Basho probably does, though, but I think he's hunting turkey.

Two of my favorite symbols have been put in a very unflattering combination. Boo.

Nice haiku, however.

Good but scary haiku. I'd give 5-2 odds that a nuclear device PRODUCED in Pakistan or by an Expatriate Paki will be detonated within 20 years. Perhaps in India. Maybe the UK. Maybe here.

I'm not sure that the USA or UK would retaliate against the "nation" of Pakistan if that happened.

Excellent. I dont know about rayed...pointed would have worked for sure - but rayed in combination with nukular is a fun mix. Glad you played this week.

Troll: they got dsl out at the camp, dont they? or - smart phonen it in?
regards to Basho

I'll abide what the master and Chicky say.

Boxer
Wel, I think the good ole US of A could do something about that flag if we awanted to.

Troll
Oh, I think India gets it first unless they strike first. And I think the US would retaliate, just not with nukes.

Chicky
I went with rayed because I picked it up while researching the flag and never gave a thought to an alternate word. Thaks for hosting.
