The suicide attack in Iran, whose responsibility has already been accepted by Jundallah, indicates that our soil continues to be used by the US for destabilising Iran. In doing so, the US is doing enmity with both our countries. The motive probably is to have us besieged by hostile neighbours before we are actually attacked. That is how it is going to be. The strategy Ahmadenijad and his government have selected to counter this should be an inspiration to us. The hard-line stance they have taken not only represents the ethos of their nationalism but consistency of their policy too, things we must learn from them. When would we accept the fact that US is our enemy, rather than a friend? -IMAAN HAZIR, Islamabad, October 20.
