It is still a question as why the Americans have taken such a long time for reaching to the truth. They have really wasted a lot of time in tracking down the symbol of terrorism Osama bin Laden. There was a time when terrorists were patronized on the state level as that was the time when these terrorists were used in Kashmir and Afghanistan. It is interesting to note that the United States has also used these terrorists against the defunct USSR.
Now Pakistan is the target of Al-Qaeda. Pakistani security agencies are incapable to counter terrorists. Actually rampant corruption has ruined all institutions of Pakistan. Now it is the best time for Americans to come and take control of Pakistan directly. Now a stable Pakistan is in the interest of whole world.
There will be no denying the fact that Pakistani atom bomb is also insecure. There is impression in Pakistan that terrorists may reach to this deadly weapon. There is possibility that either the terrorists may carry out a suicide mission for destroying atom bomb or the Pakistani forces may blast this deadly weapon just for saving themselves from the accountability.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen was in Afghanistan on a one-day visit and met President Hamid Karzai to discuss the transition of security from Nato-led troops to Afghan security forces, which is due to begin in July.
Rasmussen was asked if Nato was concerned about Pakistan's nuclear weapons after it took Pakistani forces 17 hours to reclaim control of a naval air base from Taliban attackers and following the death of Osama bin Laden.
"I feel confident that Pakistan's nuclear arsenal is safe and well protected," said Rasmussen. "But of course it is a matter of concern and we follow the situation closely."
The attack in Karachi, the worst on a base since the army headquarters was besieged in October 2009, piled further embarrassment on Pakistan three weeks after the al Qaeda leader was found living in the city of Abbottabad, close to the country's military academy.
Rasmussen was scheduled to wind up his Afghan visit on Tuesday after spending a night and a full day in Afghanistan.
