    It is time that a new border be drawn along the natural geographical barriers, such as the Indus, to save the saner majority from the insane extremists from across the river. Lives of peaceful loving people here have become hostage to fanatics from Waziristan and Swat. If we don’t do that we will soon be forced to erect walls a la Israel to keep the bombers out.

    i dnt think its the terroists from the north doing this alone, they are most definatly being supported and funded by indian agencys RAW

  15. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 3:34 pm

    @JJ: We need Educational Bombs not barriers, so when Waziristan and other areas will have well-aware, educated ppl, no one (i’d say OUTSIDER) can incite or trigger crimes generating from such areas.

  16. JayJay (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 3:49 pm

    PS – But the perpetrators of 9/11 were all well educated, weren’t they?

    It is not education but hate for others and self-righteousness among the fanatics which leads to such indiscriminate killings.

  17. JayJay (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 3:54 pm

    SUH – It is time to open our eyes to reality and start introspection. Conspiracy theories webbed around RAW and others don’t hold any water now. The enemy is within. After suffering 100s of deaths and highest number of suicide-bombings, we should know better. It is the lure of 72 virgins for the zombies groomed for suicide-mission that is our bane.

  18. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 4:07 pm

    JJ: Dont get the LITERAL of word education i used. i ment something in broad spectrum.

    Question of the day…. WHAT leads them to become suicide bombers??? . I just know there is no single answer.

  19. asif (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 4:10 pm

    i agree with Pretty Simple. This is instant conclusion and that cannot be right

  20. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 4:10 pm

    @Asif: Thanx for the link, we ll see what we can do.

  21. JayJay (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 4:24 pm

    PS- Thanks but how can “broad spectrum” education be achieved? Mass education of any type is a long-term solution — at least a generation long. How can we stop suicide bombings killing innocent civilians, government officials, etc right now? How can we stop the next bomber from blowing himself up in Lahore, Rawalpindi or Karachi?

    My solution to avert further suicide bombings is to blow up all bridges on the Indus and revert back to the natural and traditional boundaries fo the subcontinent. We need to cut our losses and concentrate saving the areas which are comparatively safer before we lose the whole country to the menace of Talibanization and radicalization. Simple.

  22. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 4:54 pm

    @JJ: Remember, Short Cuts always make it temporary to last. So , Yes, we do need long term solutions as well, that u mentioned.

    Yes, broad specturm of education can make us better citizens, the same ppl from 9/11 cud have won noble prize or something like that …again a question, why they dint excell in their careers and won the prize?? …oh, were they BRAINWASHED???

    Its all about Faith in the Right thing :)), their right can be our wrong …so, broad specturm can help u developing a strong sense of RIGHT and WRONG, if u get that, u r a hero :)

    I agree with Jayjay on this one. I guess we should come to grips with the reality that Pakistan has been formed on unnatural borders, with wide ranging disparity among its citizen. It was formed for a reason, not for what has been taught to us in our higher and secondary school textbooks.

    It was formed to serve as a buffer state to stop the socialist Russians back then, and since then Pakistan has only been playground of super powers. Exactly serving the purpose for which it was created for, and not really for the muslims of the sub continent. Unfortunately we were not given access to history books. Now we have internet, and everyone can seek truth for themselves. So go find out for your self who created Pakistan, and what were the motives behind it.

    Quaid-e-Azam wanted a secular Pakistan, and we introduced “The Objectives Resolution” which is supposed to supersede the constitution later. That is absurd. How can any document supersede the constitution? But we did it, just to please the religious fanatics once again. Just imposing hack fixes to gain political advantage.

    On the other hand small provinces are not getting justice. Look at what we are doing to Baluchistan. Look what tribal areas have been doing to us since the partition. So I ask everyone here. Why did we carve Pakistan out from the sub continent which caused the biggest, the bloodiest migration in the history of mankind? To make the feudal more rich, to let politicians plunder the natural resources and promulgate disparity, and for the armed forces to sit on half on her revenue driving petrol cars when the rest of the nation cannot even afford a bicycle? To make one general in the armed forces, we deprive 100 of our citizens off their basic rights. The right to education, the right to security, the right to “live”.

    Look at what happened to muslims who stayed behind with our neighbours. Our neighbours have made centers of excellence in so many domains, while we couldn’t add anything worth mentioning to our infrastructure. Ask yourself objectively, do we really deserve Pakistan?

    So a common man will always ask, why does he really need Pakistan? Just because so that he can be plundered of even his basic rights of living peacefully, with security of life, respect, and livelihood?

    I guess Russia was once super a power. It put the first man in orbit. Look what social injustice did to her. We are no “sacred cow” who would be spared of the nature’s brutal workings, just because we live in a fools paradise believing that we are the so called “promised” muslim state.

    I offer condolences to the familes of the martyred policeman and hope the authorities can stop these murdererous rampages of terrorists.

    Let me also condemn “Pakistanis” like Jayjay and his ilk who have nothing positive to contribute and cant even call criminals criminals.

  27. KAMI (unregistered) on January 10th, 2008 @ 9:50 pm

    I some what agree with JAYJAY and ISLOO, but my approach would be different. What has happened in the past has happened, Pakistan is a reality and we have to fix what is wrong. To do that first there has to be a realization of the fact that our involvement in the Afghan war had its consequences, which we see in the form of Talinbaanization of the North. I have no problem with people criticizing Mush and America for all of our woes but where I have a problem is with parties like ANP, MMA and even PML living in a state of denial, and making this a Pahtoon and Tribal issue, whereas, I know a lot of Pathans of Peshawar and Quetta who are deeply concerned about the degeneration of their cities due to Afghan influx. Many were forced to bid farewell to their hometowns and opted for Lahore, Karachi or Islamabad.

    So what to do now without being partisan? All political forces should present a joint front against the fanatics. Those with contacts in Tribal Areas like Qazi, Fazl-ul-Rehman and even Imran Khan should go there and talk some sense to these guys; for once they should stop covering up for them. On the other hand the nation should stand beside its armed forces to present a joint front to the terrorists. Remember as long as we continue to finger point and grapple with each other, the job of these fanatics will become that much easier. One day they will bomb police, other day a lawyers rally and attempt an assassination or two in between. Chaos certainly suits them, it’s their way to get hold of more and more territory. Political forces like ANP and MQM can be categorized as regional and have their flaws but their core is progressive and pro-federation, make them a part of the reconciliation process and fight this evil threatening the very fabric of our society.

    Ignorants made similar statements before 71 that INDIA couldnt do that but world saw how India took advantage of situation with help of Mukti Bahni. At that time enemie were also within but outsiders took advantage with help of local mir jafir and sadiq and so called intellectual retards who preferred to live in fantasy world. the result is Bangladesh.

    Now zardari and his son talks about split of Pakistan and we are nOT taking them seriously.

  29. Opee (unregistered) on January 11th, 2008 @ 1:06 am

    ^ Yes we should take them seriously. They very much indeed have the capabilities to do so!!

  30. JayJay (unregistered) on January 11th, 2008 @ 3:54 am

    AAMIR – Again, thank you, for condemning me and my ilk. You are being very “positive” here yourself. I must admire you for the “heaps of positive solutions” you have presented at this forum to check the menace of suicide-bombers blowing themselves in our cities in order to win high places in the Paradise with its wining, dining and other leisure facilities.
