Im personally uncomfortable relating the deaths of Pakistanis since the beginning of the war on terror with those of innocent civilians, who's only fault was to go to work that infamous morning on September 11. Unfortunately, we, Pakistanis are just as much to blame for the losses we have suffered since.
Had we made the effort to do what is right back in the 80s and 90s, and not what was beneficial politically, we may have never allowed these extremist elements to flourish in our nation. The blood of all those Pakistani lives is on the hands of the ignorant leadership of Pakistan that valued its own power position in regional and local politics, over that of the countless lives that may be lost were the situation to go sour...as it did after the Americans invaded Afghanistan.
My sincerest condolences go out to those who lost relatives that day. I feel the same for the Pakistanis since, but how would we feel if every time we tried to honor those who died and someone else comes in and completely overshadows it and starts rambling about the losses in their own country. This day belongs to the Americans, they suffered greatly to earn that right.
