All hope is lost

Is it really? I am talking about the nightmare scenario in Pakistan with the Islamic radicals getting hold of nuclear weapons. Since I keep on tracking what is going in the alternate universe called Pakistan, I get disgusted everyday to read the news about how they keep on blaming all their problems on the Indian/Israeli/American operatives trying to destroy Pakistan. On one talk show host, I heard a long bearded guy telling the host that after the Devil, the Paki People hates America and the Taliban are their number one Friend now turned into enemy due to their alliance with the United States. I just felt like throwing up hearing that. After all the killings that they endure each day trying to reach the elusive heaven, they can’t get to accept that they are the ones who are their own worst enemy.

It is like the autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks your body. The Taliban have become like that but even when there is a plethora of evidence suggesting that the Taliban have sworn to avenge the death of their comrades, all the Pakis can do is to put their head in the sand like an ostrich and blame others. Lets us for a moment create a hypothetical situation. If the U.S. is to be blamed for their economic, political ills, how come their army works with the U.S. If we are the most hated nation there, why do they gladly accept all the aid and visas they can get their hands on.
