JMT. Opinions from forum members please.
Here is what I feel the truth is complicated at the same time I feel US & West is not just confused about how to handle pakis as they are directionless. The reason for this I feel is there are too many actors and too many short term interests / goals that are involved. So I agree with you and Mr Ombaba that cancer is in pakilands and paki institutions. That is true but the reason you see inaction on the problem statement is there is a huge lobby within establishment that feels they can use pakis to further their geo strategic plans and this group will pardon every sin of pakis the same way shishupala was pardoned. There is a lobby of people like JF Dulles (Ghurkha frame) Nixon, Regan, Charlie Wilson etc and their offsprings in todays pentegon, congress and foggy bottom who are retarding any action against TSPA. So basically its like blind men feeling elephant. Few of us see what Ombaba sees and other see america completely blind to our interests.
