On Saturday, Jemima Khan wrote in The Independent:
“Nuclear-armed Pakistan, with its discredited and fractured military and its own Taliban, has been badly destabilized by the ‘war on terror.’ Before 2002, there was no Pakistani Taliban and suicide attacks were unheard of. Last year, in Pakistan, 11,585 people were killed as a result of terrorist incidents, including 80 suicide attacks.
“There comes a point when you have to ask: what is more dangerous, terrorism or counter-terrorism? The irony of the ‘war on terror’ is that the U.S. can win it only when it finally stops fighting it.”
