7 August 2009: The Manmohan Singh government is shooting itself in the foot by articulating, through a section of the press, that it is following a policy of "flexible containment" of Pakistani terrorism. (And you thought Sharm-el-Sheikh was the last of the disaster.) What this means on the ground is that India is okay if the Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist leader, Hafeez Mohammed Sayeed, is not prosecuted for terrorist acts like 26/ 11 if instead some of his subordinates like Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Zarrar Shah are "put out of action" or even lesser fries. That's called lowering the bar, and it always results in zero action.
