Your editorial on Hillary's tubewells (October 29) sums up our position rather well. It is surprising how our leaders are so bowled over with American officials, they actually start believing that only Americans know what is best for us. At a time when Pakistan badly needs military surveillance equipment, helicopters, etc, Hillary has come with tubewells. How hilarious The attitude of the American administrations, including the present one, in relation to Arab-Israeli issue, Iraq, indeed, about Muslims generally, and their plans for our region particularly, should leave no doubt in anyone's mind as to what their real intentions are. I hope our people wake up sometime soon as there does not seem to be much time left. -S.R.H. HASHMI, Karachi, October 30.
