Attack on Pakistan on the cards

It may not be long before the notorious MIGs may take off from bases in North India and bomb Lashkar hideouts and camps in Pakistan as the international squeeze on Pakistan is getting tighter, tight enough to suffocate the terrorist camps. What makes this evident are the international reactions more so from the United States nad Israel.

I'd like to quote a few lines from the Times of India.

‘‘Rather than simply begging the Indians to show restraint, a better option could be to internationalize the response. Have the international community declare that parts of Pakistan have become ungovernable and a menace to international security,’’ Robert Kagan, an influential analyst with the Carnegie Endowment, said.
‘‘Would such an action (strikes) violate Pakistan’s sovereignty?’’ Kagan asked in an op-ed, and answered, “Yes, but nations should not be able to claim sovereign rights when they cannot control territory from which terrorist attacks are launched.’’
