A Deliberate Act of Aggression?

If you’re struggling to understand quite what’s going on in Pakistan at the moment, there was a lovely, illuminating quote in the Wall Street Journal yesterday…

Gen. Kayani’s ability to accede to U.S. demands is greatly limited by events like the one Saturday, which stoke anti-U.S. fervor in Pakistan, said Talat Masood, a retired general and defense analyst.

“Those who have been more moderate, even those people are asking is it worth having a relationship with the U.S.?” Mr. Masood said. “It will be very difficult for Gen. Kayani to defend the alliance.”

Mr. Masood said he had taped a television chat show Saturday after the attack on the border posts during which he was the only participant arguing that the U.S. wouldn’t have targeted Pakistani soldiers in Mohmand as a deliberate act of aggression.

Very few here believe that 24 soldiers were killed in an accident.
