HONG KONG: This is with reference to Kamran Shafi’s article “Hemmed in on all sides” (June 29). For all those delusional Pakistanis who still think that we have a justifiable and national security argument in running with our double policies, I urge all of you to read opinion pieces and editorials in major newspapers all over the world and understand that even our closest and dearest ones are openly writing about our dual policies, threats of global terrorism and Pakistan being its epicentre and the bickering within state institutions rendering the government ineffective. The European, American and Latin American press has nothing but massively negative opinions and assessments of our country and policies.
We are fast becoming the global migraine of the world. This is a sad state of affairs and we need to get our house in order as quickly as possible before we become completely isolated in the world.
