'You have created a monster and now you don't know what to do with it.'

The Observer has an interesting article discussing what the Pakistanis think of being represented as the epicenter of terror and some of their thoughts on why Pakistan radicalized.

There's the very rare mention of the US's support for the Afghan resistance in the 80's citing that as the turning point. (You just don't see that mentioned in the US press. EVER.)


  • There was also a lot of dissapointment over the US not stepping in to stop Zia-ul-Haq's regime from murdering Ali Bhutto, a moderate who offered real hope.
    He obviously didn't offer hope for whatever the US players were after at the time.

  • Exactly. Same reason Musharraf's in now.
