We are a funny people We simply do not believe in doing anything with grace, least of all losing. That is why we are forever trying to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. The number of letters one reads these days there was no pressure on President, the President took the right decision at the right time, blah, blah, blah makes me sick to stomach. Dont these people watch TV or read newspapers? Have they never heard of Hillary Clinton or General Kayani, and what these two were doing during the Long March, working overtime? There were more telephone calls per hour from Washington to Pakistan during this crisis than at any other time in our history. My question is, if restoration was already on Presidents agenda, why did it take so many hours for the announcement to be made? It shows he was not prepared for it. Also if Iftikhar Chaudry had to wait for Dogar to retire, why were the other 10 judges kept waiting for all these months? -KHURSHID ANWER, Lahore, via e-mail, April 2.
