Breakfast with terrorists

Sir: The prime minister had breakfast with those who represent terrorists, something that would never happen anywhere else in the world. I wonder what they talked about. Did the representatives of the militants thank the PM for the delicious high-cholesterol food or did they say they were impressed by the furniture? I ask because we already know what they want: the destruction of Pakistan. Maybe the PM told them to keep away from his province if the negotiations do not succeed, and they probably agreed, seeing that the army has stopped bombing their hideouts. It would of course have been worthwhile if they had been persuaded to lay down their arms, agree to stop killing innocent people and hand over their foreign ‘guests’. I doubt if this was even discussed.
