Waziristan will be the Qabristan: One country – One Law

This duel in Waziristan will be a Qabristan (graveyard). This is an oversimplification. The only intrigue here is whose Qabristan – the Army’s or the fanatics’? ……

We refuse to free ourselves from these paranoid, self-serving apparitions and yet we demand sovereignty from the nefarious designs of our many (largely imagined) enemies. The enemy is us.
