After Pakistan president Zardari has gone to town with the phrase “non-state actors”, now even Condoleeza Rice has started using that phrase. How newly coined phrases travel in diplomatic circles! But I strongly feel that “non-state actors” is phraseology aimed at deflecting the specter of sanctions that would inevitably follow if state of Pakistan is proven as a supporter of terrorism and thereby branded as a terrorist state.
George Bush’s ‘secret’ letter to the US congress, published by the Washington Post, exposes the inconsistencies in the assurances that Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, gave to the Indian parliament while saving his government. No more “Singh is King” then?!
