From Dawn:
Pak warns against foreign meddling in Afghan affairs

Come on, now. Irrespective of your ideological or strategic or political views on what's happened in Central Asia over the last thirty years, you have to admit that's pretty funny.

Forgive me for being completely off topic here, but is this a safe/sane time to visit K2/Concordia?

Ahsan great article again. i am a lil surprised that you still remember hobert fiasco. Not too many remember that aussie chase anymore. I hvnt forgotten that match till now. Unlike this match i would like to blame truly truly awful umpiring for our defeat. I can still hear that langer' nick.

This is indeed humorous in sad way though! Our concerns may be legit but did we consider them when were busy in a Proxy war that brought Afghanistan to ruins. Are we not again meddling in another nation’s affairs? This war cannot be fought alone with of the cooperation of our Afghan counterparts as we are both victims of the same evils

Hanif I have no direct info
.. but the northern areas are probably one of the safest parts of Pakistan..largely untouched by the violence elsewhere

Ahsan: Is there anything on the scale bigger than occupation ?

I think Hanif might've been referring to the weather/snow. Wouldn't going up there in the middle of January be sort of crazy?

And I think the answer to your question is colonialism.
