We don't agree with The Times (UK) Editorial
The Times of London writes:
Pakistan’s swift condemnation of the weekend bombings in Delhi as “heinous and cowardly” underlines the danger to President Musharraf of attempts by Kashmiri militants to sabotage rapprochement with India.
So a swift condemnation is what it takes to absolve anyone?
For Mr Musharraf, this is a dangerous threat. The Pakistani leader’s abandonment of the Taleban in Afghanistan, his crackdown on militants crossing the Line of Control and the arrest of scores of terrorists linked to al-Qaeda have made him a target for Islamist fanatics.
If as this editorial argues, why is that there is no reduction of violence both in Jammu and Kashmir (even post-earthquake) and sustained attacks of the Taliban against Afghans and U.S. forces there? And there is no answer to the $64000 question? Where the f**k is Osama Bin Laden?
The earthquake has exposed the myth of the militants’ extremism. Their claim to popular support is false. Recent events have brought to Pakistan thousands of tons of food, medicines and supplies from America and the West and assistance from the old enemy, India.
While Gen. Musharraf talks about sensisitivites about accepting aid from India, he is letting a free run to terrorist organizations such as Jamaat-ul-Daawa and Lashkaar-e-Toiba in running relief camps, which will surely serve as recruitment centers for jihadists.
Overall, this editorial quickly absolves the Pakistani military establishment even before the blood stains have dried in the markets of Delhi. But the real truth about this jihadi pigs and its Army enablers will soon come to light.
