Looking over the Pakistani response to the Mumbai attacks has scared the hell out of me. It’s understandable that Pakistanis are defensive, but the television anchors have gone into full-fledged conspiracy mode, the op-ed writers have brought up all the 2002 rage over Gujarat and there is no shortage of “the BJP did it” conspiracy theories. I’ve always wondered what could possibly push the collective psyche of a country over the edge into North Korea territory and I fear that we are fast heading that way. Thankfully, there is no way we can push ourselves into international isolation and sustain ourselves for long once there (we lack even that basic level of competence).
