I am sick of hearing statements like "no foreign operation will be allowed on our soils, America has been warned, Pakistan has the right to defend its territory etc, etc". Please convey my message to our brave knights that if they do not have the guts to fight, then they should keep their mouths shut. Pakistan is already suffering; please don't make her a laughing stock of the world. -KHWAJA HAROON, Lahore, via e-mail, September 11.
