    @Asad Omar:

    “….whoever kills one pakistani is a terrorist to me – end of and must be dealt with like Islam says ” if found guilty an eye for an eye”

    All that bravado is fine when you are dealing with someone weaker than you. When the adversary is US of A, ..well… Islam says a lot about tolerance also, doesn’t it?

  2. Asad Omar says:

    Pakistan MUST do it alone. It is very very important for our self esteem and national pride. We MUST stop relying on foreign support its time to stand on our own two feet.

    We don’t have to alienate or embrace the USA. As for the likes of OBL and other taliban folk, whoever kills one pakistani is a terrorist to me – end of and must be dealt with like Islam says ” if found guilty an eye for an eye”

    We must revive Pak-US relation. The existing provinces are enough I believe. We need to develop all areas rather than divide further.

    “The people of Pakistan have shown amazing resilience even as they face rising terrorist activity, severe economic distress and perennial regional tensions.”

    I have heard that a man who killed his parents was brought to trial for murder. Then during trial he pleaded for mercy on the grounds of being an orphan.

    Pakistan’s plea that their country is target of terrorism is similar to the above logic. For years Pakistan – as a state policy – protected and exported jihadis of every hue on a destruction trail around the world. Even now it continues to distinguish between “good terrorists” and “bad terrorists”. Pakistanis cry foul only when their “bad terrorists” hit inside Pakistan and turn the other way when their “good terrorists” hit elsewhere.

    All the while expecting that the world should swallow Pakistan’s argument of being a “target of terrorism”.
