It looks that the Intelligence and LEA’s are either incapable of taking any action against the Terrorist , who are attacking the Integrity of Pakistan, or they does not want to take any action against them , because of some unknown reasons , As now it has been the headlines of the World media even that the terrorists have taken control of certain parts of Pakistan , as it started with Lal Masjid Incident , in which Pakistani Army under the leadership of President Musharaf Boldly took a decision to take action against the terrorist den , under cover of Lal Masjid , whose ulterior motives were to take control of Islamabad , Which they even tried to replicate in Swat ,and inflicted heavy losses to the Pakistani Nation by giving it a bad name as a Nuclear State ,under the control of Terrorist , but which was repulsed very boldly by the Patriotic armed forces of Pakistan.
But after that due to International Politics and due to some Black Sheeps in our National Politics and some in our forces , have refrained our armed forces not to take any action against these terrorist and rogue elements , but now it is the time for the armed forces of Pakistan to take some bold steps and save Pakistan , as we Live by Pakistan and we die By Pakistan . The top Brass of Pakistan is very intelligent , and should be well aware of the facts , No Pakistan No Brass No Badges , Just Heads rolling on the streets , some by the invaders , others by the angry desperate citizens.
