Pakistan is among the most disorganized nations in the world. It has spent the past fifty years worrying about a possible war with India that has long since left the minds of those who lead India. Hundreds of thousands of Pakistan soldiers are on the border facing India while thousands of Muslim fanatics roam areas like North Waziristan. It was the Pakistan secret service, the ISI which originally created and armed the Taliban which was sent into Afghanistan to cause disruption and chaos. It was the Pakistan ISI which protected Osama bin Laden when he came to their nation seeking a secure place to hide. Pakistan leaders continue to believe they can have a pact with the devil despite evidence to to the contrary. Perhaps, and we do mean, perhaps, Pakistan leaders have finally recognized the failure of their policy to accept the presence of militants in their land.
The death of 133 Pakistan children in a school in Peshawar has finally got the attention of the Pakistan government. Many of the children had fathers in the Pakistan army. The Pakistan government has now announced it will execute 500 militants who are in their jails. This action will not alter the real issues confronting Pakistan:
1. There is need for a modern secular school system.
2. There is need to cease aiding the Taliban.
3. There is need for a permanent peace with India.
4. There is need to focus on economic development.
Those actions will destroy the militants.
