In the Service of the Commmunity
||May , 2008
The United States invasion of Iraq is a failure and a foreign policy setback. It may take more than a few decades to recover the financial losses and repair America’s image in the world.
It has been argued, and perhaps rightly so, that the war on terror is directly responsible for an increase in terror and suicide bombings in Pakistan. It is difficult to win the war by bombing innocent tribesmen on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. Only two decades ago, these warriors were recruited as Mujahideen by America and they played a heroic role in winning the war against the Soviet Union.
While elimination of the hard-core terrorists cannot be disputed, there should be a foolproof strategy to spare the innocent and the politically unmotivated.
America cannot win the hearts and minds of the Pakistan Tribes by bombing with one hand and giving aid like creating ROZs with the other hand.

PAL-C's commitment to building awareness
and educating Members of Congress
on issues important to Pakistani
Americans have made it a reputable
and recognized name on Capitol Hill
with an office right next door to
the Heritage Foundation. Without
the continued support of the community
to such an important cause, PAL-C
will not be able to reach its ultimate
potential – a loss that will
affect each and every Pakistani
American today and in the future.
