American Hospital in Dubai is the safest place to meet the American interlocutors. Asif Zardari will soon be back to Pakistan after resolving all his problems with the tacit help of Americans.

In words of a renowned jounalist: "It seems that humanity has taken leave of this country and there is no respect for human life. President Zardari is a democratically elected president; neither is he someone who came to power via the backdoor nor is he a military dictator. Dragging down the dignity of the office of the president just because some people do not like the individual at the helm of affairs is rather unfortunate."
