    Ever since, the APS massacre by savages, Pakistanis and citizens the world over, have expressed shock and sorrow. Many army chiefs have expressed their desire to co-operate and help us rid the country of these despicable militants. However, if it were not for the decisiveness and toughness of General Raheel, the knock-kneed and craven politicians will have bowed to the abominable TTP. The Chinese have stood by us and we have to prove that we are deserving of their trust. Thanx and Salams
