    And the same old bloody politics seems to be involved. Mr. Governer said opposition could be involved for the success of its strike while the opposition beleives Gov wants to make us look bad.

    Its always innocent public that seems to be effected, in most cases there are even casualties, jobs and buisness gets ruined and they can just point the fingers at each other. Sigh.

    Herez a suggestion…. catch the one who is responsible and punish him….. make an example so that others who wanna do it next time actually think twice about what’ll happen if they are caught, right now, all they think is who should i call to get me out if i m caught. When there were assasination attempts on Musharraf and the Corps Commander, not only were those responsible caught within days, but their cases are over and they have been given death penalty….. but when innocent citizens lives are lost….. no one cares!!!

    To me it doesnt make any sense .. I mean what do these people think ….blowing public resturant such as McDonalds, KFC, is actually gonna effect the west ….. whereas I think ….the present govt. is actually tryin to overcast some kinda insecurity for locals…. merely because of shenanigans of some stupid person feeling uncertain… we know how these people run the government.

    They r just anti President Musharraf people who want 2 show that there is insecurity in karchi , they should be killed in a shootout in first attempt. these public places should install metal detectors at hidden places.
