    When the president dances on the stage after massacre of 40+ people, when the entire government machinery including the MNA from Rawalpindi is perpetually invovled in trying to get this clown re-elected, who is going to go after the terrorists!

    Sad day indeed for my beloved city.

    Earlier, some officials said the staff on the bus were from an agency involved in atomic work, while others said they were from a security agency.

    These explosions will stop once the people of Pakistan get tired of the media spin and the opposition dramas and let the government go after these terrorists in full force.

    According to Yahoo and Reuters Top Stories this was a Suicide Bombing.

    We have a very short memory. We will forget this in a day or two.
    May Allah protect us from Evil terrorists.
    But when we plant bad seeds, the produce is surely poisonous.

    I agree with Alibhae, the govt is under assault by the media/opposition and civil society. Who has time to tackle suicide terrorists?

    the pakistan army is a buch of sissy pussies and this article proves it. it seems that the whole nation is scared stiff of the taliban and the army is just as scared and cowardly. pls dont give me the bs about pathans killing phatans is not on the agenda. our army cannot fight and that is a fact.
    Wake up and lets face it. Why dont we let the americans do some house cleaning for us?
    I see no hope in the future, not with mushi not with BB and not with nawaz, all of them are either puppets or criminals of the highest degree.
    The only hope is to split up the nation into 4 new countries. let sindh and punjab be for the modern enlightened human beings. Nwfp and baluchistan can be the home of the fanatics and
    heritics. that is our only way to happiness.
    I do not want my wife and daughters to be illitrate and burka dressed, i do not want my son to wear a stupid talban beard colored with that stupid henna color. I want my kids to live in afree world, listen to any music they like and say what they want to say.
    Until them I spit on all the idiots who are spoiling the future my dear country pakistan.

    Your comment “the Pakistan army is a bunch of sissy pussies”
    It is very hard to fight your homegrown enemies. You cannot distinguish between brother and enemy. You have to wait till someone attacks you first and then it may be too late to fight.

    As far the split is concern, it sound good in theory but you cannot let a country breakup due to a few fanatic-thugs in a society. Also then you have to worry about the Talibans at the border.
