I have been reading your remarkable research on the ongoing war on terror in Pakistan. We as a nation are actually not taken into confidence about this war. We have frequentally been briefed about the ambitions of terrorists. Our society totally agrees with our goverment on this policy. But we do not know much about the dictation of American forces to our destabilized ruling elites. We strongly condemn the barbaric actions of US officials regarding Dr. Afia Sadiquee, how America, the champion of human rights, has treated this woman. No Western country is interested to ask US authorities if the Pakistani government is not worthy to ask them. The presence of Blackwater in Pakistan is true. But we do not know what harmful effects there are, what they actually are doing. If Pakistan is a nuclear power and declared as a terrorist nation, then why is only Iran targeted for nuclear sanctions? Doesn't the US government feel the danger of nuclear expansion? We are suffering a lot of problems since the war began. Economically, we are getting weaker day by day. Our corruption rate is increasing, as US masters have more to give our hungry leaders.
Please tell me: internationally, Pakistan is standing where? What is the future of our country?
