Self-Destructive Rage

Via Associated Press, Sympathy For Al Qaeda Surges In Pakistan

If one had to have an enemy state, could one possibly find a more self-destructive one?

Dude. Did you read the story?

Sympathy for al-Qaida has surged after a U.S. airstrike devastated this remote mountain hamlet in a region sometimes as hostile toward the Pakistani government as it is to the United States.

A remote mountain hamlet isn't exactly all of Pakistan.

As a Pakistani, let me assure you: other than the Jamaat types, there's very little sympathy for Al-Qaeda anywhere.

As you would note, it is author Riaz Khan -- not us -- who's written the headline. All we've done is link to it.

Best regards

PR: Interestingly raven is echoing the same thoughts as Shaukat Aziz who appeard yesterday on CNN Late Edition.

Ofcourse, Wolf Blitzer correctly asked him "If that is the case, how come most of the Al-Queda top dogs like Khalid Sheik Mohammed have been captured in big cities like Pindi and Karachi". No answer from Aziz.
