Tit for Tat

Both the following news stories have been taken from Daily times, aaah politics is so much fun for those at the helm of affairs. It is the pawns that suffer. I really don't know the facts behind the stories here but I know the politics behind the stories, this is what will probably happen the leaders will step up and in a very difficult diplomatic step both accused will be pardoned and released to their respective countries or at least their death sentences will be turned to life in prison. This has been going on for a long time between Pakistan and India and I don't see if there ever will be peace between the two countries. We have seen spies being caught and exchanged in tit for tat measures, we have seen diplomats even of very high stature being declared personan non grata by both governments in tit for tat measures. When will this all end, will there ever be peace?

Pakistani gets death for Red Fort attack
New Delhi: An Indian court sentenced a Pakistani to death on Monday for the Red Fort attack five years ago.The prosecutors had said that Ashfaq Rehman, convicted of waging war on India, was a member of a banned Pakistan-based militant group, which some analysts suspect of involvement in the recent bombings in New Delhi. As the sentence was read out, Rehman started screaming in protest. Two of Rehmans Indian co-conspirators, Nazir Ahmed Qasid and his son Farooq Ahmad Qasid, received life sentences, while his wife and another man, an internet cafe owner who aided and abetted Rehman, got seven years in prison. Hang the terrorists,a crowd chanted outside.
