war on terrorism?..then get off the fence

It infuriates me when governments publicise their intention to declare war on terrorism but do little about it. I refer in particular to the Pakistani government. We all know that Pakistan is not doing enough to rid their country of the Al Qaeda supporting Taliban.
President Asif Ali Zardari should and could mobilise his forces and kick out the Taliban but it is not happening.
Why..? It obviously has to do with part of the northern Pakistani population supporting the "cause", as in the fight against the "infidel" (America), so to speak.
David Cameron has yesterday, in his visit to India, spoken out against this situation and I must say, I now respect him a lot more than I did before. So if Cameron has spoken out and rightly accused Pakistan of procrastinating, why are there Pakistani protesters outside 10 Downing Street? Why has the Pakistani government complained about this statement? Everyone but the Pakistanis know this to be true!!
Come on Pakistan, kick out the Taliban and join the world community, where you belong. Educate your people and free them from the shackles of the past.
You know it's the right thing to do.
...well done David, thank you for proving me wrong on that score...only on that score though :)
