Rice and Ponte Must Understand

US Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte called on President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani and Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi and approved of what Pakistan was doing for them. Though it wasn’t part of the NRO deal of Zardari, the mantra of do more goes beyond that.

The fallen Pakistan and the coward leadership has cowed down in front of the United States of America and the more Pakistan is bowing down the more the noose is tightening around their neck and it seems that there is no turning back. The funny and ironic thing is that India is even then keep on threatening the Pakistan and its Air Force is on high alert, which is very shameful and the role of our leaders is even more shameful.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has lauded Pakistan’s “serious steps” against militants in the wake of attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai, which, she said, were aimed at stirring up trouble between the nuclear neighbors. But she has to stop pressurizing the Pakistan.

The NATO and US forces deployed in Afghanistan face an intensifying Taliban insurgency and rely heavily on Pakistan’s ant-terrorism support in the rugged border regions. This reality must be understood by the American, lest its too late.
