Pakistanis, especially our elite, are a strange product of God. We do not want to be abreast of the facts of the world. The whole world rightly calls us a 'failed state'. We were jubilant at the arrival of the newly elected President of America assuring our citizens that there shall be no drone attacks now. That fairytale romance ended today when we were bombed again. Our President and Prime Minister, with a look of utter surprise on their faces, led the nation in acknowledging the reality check. Obama has endorsed the policy of continuing the bombing in future as well. Now our President is, surprise, surprise, calling upon the Europeans to help. How foolish can one be? -M.H.
