New Delhi has been warning the world of terrorist threats emanating from Pakistan, and now the world is listening. ++ "Stabilizing Pakistan means genuinely democratizing its polity and helping its economy grow back to a sustainable level of prosperity." ++ Most importantly Pakistan's corrupt military establishment, which is strangling civilian rule, must be ousted from power. ++ Military action is not the answer; a global effort, lead by G7 countries, China, and Saudi Arabia, is needed to bolster Pakistan's democracy and provide aid.
