May be I am (I AM) jumping the gun, previously I had commented here that Pakistan is on the verge of becoming the next Somalia, that remains true still. Look at what is going on in Karachi, in Quetta, in Peshawar, Swat and Waziristan. The insurgency is out of control, so is the police and the army. Human rights are being trampled upon by all sides,while the people starve. Power remains with the thugs, civilian and police and military thugs.It is not for the benefit of the average person that Pakistan is trying to get a toe hold in Afghanistan. It is, if, and that is a big IF, it for the benefit of the military and the rich. At the same time the equation is complicated by the newly re-announced find of minerals, which makes it difficult for the US to get out of Afghanistan and leave the extraction to the Indians and the Chinese and to a lesser extant to Pakistani'. So the US is in there for good. Simultaneously, and I addressed it before, while we complain about the corruption of the Afghan regime, we keep bribing the Afghans ourselves, not to mention the corruption and bribery in our own defense department and in our contracts, and the kick backs. We can not get rid of the Taliban, we cannot and will not trust the Pakistanis we can not stop bribing everyone there, we do not stop the corruption here. What is the end result we are looking for will we keep killing and getting killed?
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
