expatpakistani | 6 years ago | Reply Well, Cost of the innocent civilians? These pharos live in the palaces and talk about the normal person on the street of Pakistan.These arrogant SOBs have no stake in this blood shed, as long as their estates are safe. They are the real curse along with their friends in corrupt establishment. All this mess is because of their hidden support to the banned religious gangs and now enemies are exploiting them. Our agencies are good to kill and spy on our own people, however when the enemy attacks they miserable fails. From Tehran Base to APS to Safoora all failures. There might be some successes in between, but they need to stop conquering their own people and focus on enemies within and beyond the state.
OBSERVER | 6 years ago | Reply war on terrorism would be won at all costs but how? by your talk...your focus on war on terror is not to shut the factory from where it is produced but to run after the finished product.Once manufactured and delivered the finish product the foot soldier can not be caught are dissuades..
