Pak should be the 'next front' in
war on terror: NY Post

The New York Post in a rather blunt editorial on Friday said President Pervez Musharraf has some "serious explaining" to do on what role Pakistan-based groups or his government played in the attack on Parliament in New Delhi.

The editorial also suggested that Pakistan should be the "next front" in the war on terrorism.

"Last week's suicide attack on India's Parliament by Islamic terrorists wasn't just a murderous attack. It was a gesture of defiance by Islamic terrorist enemy that had already declared war on the West," the paper said.

It added that Pakistan still "hosts, trains and arms terrorist groups like the one believed to have carried out the attack on Parliament even after having the good sense to withdraw support to the Taliban regime in Afghanistan."

The editorial further states that the Pakistani government had both the means and the obligation to prevent its territory from becoming a place of refuge for terrorists.

"Fortunately India's democratic government has reacted to the assault with admirable restraint. Though it has as much right as the US or Israel to defend itself against the extremists, it has so far refrained from acting while waiting to see what Musharraf does," the Post said.
