Pakistan Zindabaad!

so i saw this on cnn.com today.  it’s the dudes from Vice magazine out of brooklyn.  these guys are way cool.  they did the “heavy metal in baghdad” movie.  even cooler is that their main guy, suroosh alvi,  is desi (general term for people from india and/or pakistan).

i’ve travelled the world extensively and it always amazes me how people in other countries live.  the physical, social, and political conditions that people endure and yet with a smile on their faces is remarkable.  this particular piece offers great insight into the complexity of pakistan’s troubles and i would hope would help people here understand that our “war on terror” is an exercise in futility.
