"Is it our war?" by General Mirza Aslam Beg in your paper yesterday was an informative read, indeed. It unveils bitter facts of how foreign powers have tightened their stranglehold on Pakistan. It also sheds light on our ignorance and complete failure to understand that fighting for U.S against our own people can never be good for us. Its time to abandon this so-called 'war on terror' and bring back peace to Pakistan. -RAQIM HAQUE, Karachi, via e-mail, October 12.
