Emotions against Pakistan in wake of 26/11

In wake of the terrorist attacks on Mumbai of 26/11, as one tries to put together the whole picture, and the mind seeks to differentiate friends from enemies, I must confess that all my negative emotions are directed against Pakistan. Hopefully this is temporary, but hopefully Pakistan does something on their part in order to ease India's frustration.

It is indeed plausible that the attacks have nothing to do with the government of Pakistan. This is however not to say that the ISI, which is a power in itself in that country, is not abetting terrorists. If Pakistan's concerns for terrorist attacks in India are any more than crocodile tears, it should reflect in gradual rounding up of terror groups operating out of Pakistan and their elimination.

Pakistan hopefully realizes that terror in India will cause definitive collateral damage to itself, it's image in the world, it's economy and the dignity of it's own people.
