Thinking falls under three kinds; optimism, pessimism and realism.
Optimists are glad that their glass is half filled. Pessimists are disturbed that they have half empty glass. Realist cares about who cleans the glass after the party is over, so the house is in order.
People have narrow view about Taliban. Taliban are not just fighting Taliban. There are peaceful Taliban in every places and corners of Pakistan. Their sources are falsified Islam and they are equally damaging. So who cleans the forgery?
