You reap what you sow
Now, today’s New York Times is reporting that the Taliban says the presence of foreign aid workers in Pakistan is unacceptable “and suggested that militants could carry out attacks against members of aid groups.”
The question becomes: why should western aid workers put their lives on the line to bring help to the suffering Pakistanis when the Taliban, clearly able to carry out its threats, is ready to attack and kill those aid workers?
There have long been substantiated reports of collusion between the Pakistani government, especially the intelligence services and the Taliban. Is it possible that the people are suffering because of the duplicity of those intelligence services?
