The noose is tightening on Pakistan

The lesson Pakistan should draw from the arrest of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative best known as Abu Jundal is that international tolerance for its sponsorship of terrorism is waning. His arrest and subsequent rendition to India is the consequence of a multinational operation in which Saudi arabia, one of Pakistan's closest allies, played a major role. The US has already made the jump when it comes to the LeT. It treats the militants as enemy organisation and extensively shares intelligence with India. Though Islamabad can count on China to block international sanctions against the LeT in bodies like the United Nations, even Beijing is not above expressing irritation at Pakis-tan's inability to control the Frankenstein monsters it has created. The triad of US intelligence detect.ing a Pakistan-based terrorist, a third country apprehending the figure and India being the end recipient of the suspect or his confessions is now commonplace.http://www.hindustantimes.com/editorial-views-on/Edits/The-noose-is-tightening/Article1-879111.aspx
