Our very ‘resilient’ President Asif Ali Zardari in an interview said that nothing extraordinary would happen if the newly-elected government succeeded in stopping the drones. He was completely blasé about a subject that has affected many lives. Thousands of mothers lost their sons as Shaheeds in this ongoing battle of a strange kind. We are not directly involved, or maybe I am wrong and we are? He then went on to add that it was important to look at the consequences of any such action, which may be pointing at sanctions to Pakistan. As a Pakistani, I believe that brave leaders with integrity do not fear ‘Consequences,’ it’s the cowards who destroy a nation’s courage. I would also like to ask the president what Pakistan gained in this war.
