Pakistani schoolgirls debating about the atomic bomb

It was funny to see how different their real opinions were from their debate opinions! Suppose there were a schoolgirlish debate about the movement to liberate Kashmir. I can well imagine a set of prepared speeches about how India has oppressed the Kashmiris, Pakistan is helping the Kashmiris, etc. Now imagine that some peacenik Indian journalist is filming the whole thing and after the debate asks the girls how on earth they can defend the indefensible, namely the reality of the Kashmir “freedom fighters”. What he asks the girls is spot on: how can the “real” answer be so different from the “debate” answer?
