Promising Pakistani Prognostications

Four hopefull signs relating to Pakistan recently:
  1. The U.S. House of Representatives passed the aid bill for Pakistan and Afghanistan last week.
  2. The European Union pledged $100 million in aid to Pakistan and will hold a meeting on EU-Pakistan relations in the near future.
  3. Pakistani authorities caught at least one of the terrorists who attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore.
  4. Prime Minister Singh and President Zardari met in Russia at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting, and the back-channel negotiations, primarily on Kashmir, are likely to resume soon.
Hopefully things will keep trending upward. The country could use good news.
