Your Blogger Will Be Away For a Week
Apologies dear readers
I have to be off for a few days. In the meantime I do hope General Musharraf manages to resolve his personal crisis over the use of Indian helicopters.
The truth is that many of the survivors are in remote mountains or deep valleys, and helicopter is the only way to reach them. If Pakistan had accepted the offer made by the Indians ten days ago then a large number of lives could have been saved.
Realising that his earlier decision might possibly backfire on him, Musharraf has now offered to accept the Indian helicopers sans Indian pilots.
Even if the Indians accepted this condition - which they most likely won't - we just bloody don't have the pilots to fly these extra machines!
Who does Musharraf think he is kidding?
