Can you please get to the point?

 I was surfing the net when I came across this video from a Pakistani current affairs program called Thodi Si Siyasat, broadcast by Geo TV. Watching this show (for the first time), I was struck by the lack of coherence in its format. This guy started out by talking about ISI Chief's visit to the Indian High Comission complaining how this mean that we were sissies to the complaints of the Indian Comissioner chastising the Pakistani National Assembly for accepting the Kerry-Lugar Bill (or KLB as many have fondly dubbed it) and then India claiming rockets were launched from the Pakistani side of the Wagah border and then skipping over to the Mumbai attacks.

After just listening to this guy for 2:29, I was exhausted. I just had one question: What the @$# do these things have to do with each other?

Just get to the point already!!!!

Waziristan Offensive update

  Eleven militants and two security personnel were reported dead in a gun battle following a militant attack at an army check point in Mohmand, South Waziristan. The army retaliated, striking at a suspected militant comound, resulting in the deaths of an additional 11 militants. The Inter services public relations notes that in the past 24 hours, 42 militants have been killed, in the military advance from Kotkai and surrounding  villages to Touda China and Ganra Kach, near Sararogha which is reputed to be a Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) stronghold.
