No toning down at Wagah (and measuring the trust deficit)

Alas, another one-sided peace offering
The drill at Wagah was often taken as a metaphor of the state of relations between the two countries. Pakistan’s decision not to abide by an agreement it signed leaves the metaphor stronger.

  1. I wish this were a case of “speaking softly and carrying a big stick”. Hopefully we’ll get there someday. Several itches would be scratched if that little Western mongrel barked too loud and bit a couple of times too often that the stick was used to beat the living daylights out of it … 🙂

  2. libertarian – 🙂 I am not sure barking and biting is helping get a response (all happening now, btw). All control techniques, including dominant dog routine, except pleading, has been ruled out. So guess who is walking all over you. We have a lot to learn from bitch’s world!

  3. Chandra: agree. The little mongrel – oh wait, the mongrel’s pure – a thoroughbred terrorist – is just begging for a “dominant dog routine”. Unfortunately Big Dog’s just lying around licking his wounds.
