The latest destructive acts wrought by internal enemies.
The insurgents who attacked the PNS Mehran Base near Karachi a day back, had specific targets which they hoped to achieve. No doubt, a major one of these was the demoralization of the security forces. As for the tactics they employed, they resembled the ones used by militants the world over, whether it is the Basques in Spain or the IRA in Ireland.
The failure to prevent damage to the aircraft and facilities by these elements out to destroy Pakistan was something for which the blame again goes to the government. The question remains that if the internal security issues of the country are not resolved once and for all shouldn’t the reins be handed over to someone better equipped to handle them.
Pakistan faces growing unrest both from within and without as the terrorist threat and that of foreign imperialism go for each other in bloodsport fashion.
