We only talk, after an incident has happened and take no actions, this proves that the enemy will strike again. There is need for better planning in emergencies, there should be a special task force to address these issues, there should be drills, in all schools, to prepare them for an emergency. How will you tell a child it can be killed by anyone, who has a gun, and hates the Muslims, or were they the Muslims and we the enemy? There is need for clear lines drawn about who is right and who is wrong. Know thy enemy! We also must have an integrated intelligence service which can compile information and locate nefarious elements. There is great need to open our intelligence agencies and ask them to make list of known militants, their pictures should be on ‘The Most Wanted’ list in Pakistan. It’s about time we put a stop to all this concentration of violence in one country.
