I got a message on my Blackberry over the weekend from a friend who lives in Washington DC. The message said – “Are you worried about the situation in Islamabad? What’s going to happen when the Taliban come there? Are your parents thinking of leaving the city and moving elsewhere? Dude, don’t go back home”. I found his message really funny and typed in “ha ha” in response to his absurd questions. I told him that it was never going to happen and that the Taliban will not be able to touch Islamabad in any way or form.
It’s now Monday morning and I have just woken up to this article in the Washington Post today. I guess I have been chosing to ignore all that has been going on just miles away from my city and really need to wake up to reality.
