Days before the anniversary of the operation on Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa, the security agencies were raising concerns about the security of the capital, and all the worst nightmares came true, when a heartless suicide bomber struck at the center of the city, and shook the people from the core.
This gory thing seems to be rising once again, and with the suicide bombings in Islamabad and the serial blasts in the Karachi are giving very frightening feelers to the nations. Militants in FATA had warned of attacks. Would-be bombers and their accomplices have been arrested in Sargodha, Haripur and elsewhere.
As the operation in Khyber Agency is going nowhere, and there is sheer confusion as far as the situation in Swat is concerned, the government seems clueless and in oblivion on these matters and the top cop Rehman Malik seems to be in a chaos of mind as what to do and where to do, while Zardari is in Dubai, enjoying the NRO.
There is no strategy or objectives about combating the interior terrorism, and while we are at war, there is no policy on the part of the government.
