…and I mean that in a good way.

Zardari today:

The solution to the problem of the region, the solution to the problem of Pakistan … is politics, is dialogue … because politics is part of the cure, not part of the problem.

We have issues? Yes, we have issues. We have non-state actors? Yes, we have non-state actors. Yes, they are posing an agenda on us. We ourselves have accepted we have a cancer … We will cure this cancer ourselves.

Now, except for the ‘cure this ourselves’, I am on board.  Whether Pakistan wants to cure the problem is up for debate.  And if this is the cancer, India is getting affected by second hand smoke…so the problem is not isolated to Pakistan.

In any case, hopefully cooler heads will prevail.
