1. Why don't the Pakistanis demonstrate against Taliban and the
terrorists instead?

2. Be a bit lost in London
Twenty-two people have been arrested following a demonstration outside the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square in central London.

Twenty were held on suspicion of being members of banned group Muslims Against Crusades. Two others were arrested over violent disorder and obstruction.

Those taking part in the protest said they were members of a group called United Ummah.

>

Muslims Against Crusades was banned in the UK by Home Secretary Theresa May in November.

3. Not really. They can demonstrate in front of the Pakistani embassy
against all the terrorism that Pakistan supports around the world.

The cold, hard reality is that a vast majority of Pakistanis in Pakistan and abroad actually support terrorism and only squeal when the terrorist ability of Pakistan is thwarted.

4. Well, that makes sense
Indiscriminate blowing up of random people in some foreign country? Medals all around! Protest against it? Off to the pokey with you. That's battling terrorism, by jingo!
