    Pakistan's powerless elected government.

    The government negotiators holding talks with the Taliban are anxiously waiting for a reply from the leadership of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan to the conditions set by them.

    “We have put two conditions — talks will be held within the parameters of the Constitution and their scope will be limited to insurgency-affected areas of the tribal belt,” a member of the government’s committee told Dawn.

    He said now the ball is in the Taliban’s court and the future of peace negotiations, which began on Thursday, would be determined by their response.

    “For us the thing of foremost importance is to uphold the sanctity of the Constitution during the talks.”

    He said if the militants refused to accept the Constitution of Pakistan, as explained by Maulana Abdul Aziz at a press conference on Friday, the situation would put the government in a tight spot.

    The spineless (present) government of Pakistan decides to negotiate with criminals and the ruthless criminals known to us as only talibans (a name awarded to this brand of religious terrorists by the world leader US) have asked the Islamic republic's government to stoop more low and now as usual the government is helplessly stuck at a dead end. Guess the so called ruling leadership of Pakistan is running out of all options, including the pouring of US $$$ and Saudi Riyals. So guess sooner or later the hard realities (might) come out and many might be exposed unless and until the two big policy makers i.e. The Saudi Kingdom or the mighty US have other policy plans in place for the ineffective governments of Pakistan as commonly said "beggars are never choosers" and the country of my birth has very often being at the beginning end since its advent and as far as I see with no end in sight.
