Winning the war against terrorists


LETTER (October 25 2009): We cannot win the war against the terrorists unless and until each one of us, including our leaders, is willing to make personal sacrifices. I do not mean that we should offer to blow ourselves up as the militants are doing. But at least we can make a start by paying our due taxes.

How much income tax do our feudals pay every year? Are they ready to curb expenses and cut down on unnecessary foreign trips? We should be like the rich Germans who have asked their government to impose a 5% tax on their wealth. Do our feudals have this spirit? If they do, there is no need to beg the US for aid to win the war.
