With the latest developments on the suicide bombings front, Pakistan seems to be dogged by an incident a day atleast. The last few days, we have been discussing with various people the security issues, the Taliban issue, the Al-Qaeda issue… and one of the gentlemen on my breakfast show made a very interesting statement. Pakistanis still see this as America’s war on terror without realizing that this is really our war too. This is our war. We can sit and debate ad nauseum about the history and where it all started but the fact of the matter is that today Pakistan has elements that are very definitely doing nothing but trying to wreak havoc and the time is now to make serious moves against these militants. Yes tough decisions will have to be taken, but when tough decisions are taken … will we be supportive?
