Rabat - In the last two decades Pakistan has been grappling with recurrent political instability, endemic terrorism and sectarian strife. Besides all of that, the economy has not been doing well and climatic conditions were not good at all, either. In addition, the state has been under constant pressure to put an end to the climate of the cold war with its powerful neighbor India and allow the Americans to continue their successful and deadly drone war on the Pakistani and Afghan Taliban alike.
