Apropos BR editorial 'Power woes of our own making', the newspaper's comment is both sardonic and realistic insofar as country's electricity scene is concerned. Isn't it a joke that the Prime Minister is now being informed that the transmission and distribution system needs to be revamped because it cannot take a load in excess of 15,000MW. According to the newspaper, the present system does not have the required depth or the resilience to undertake any strategic thinking to develop a strategy aimed at tackling the ongoing electricity crisis.

Given their track record, neither side - Israel or Hamas - is going to blink first. While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is insistent to 'dismantle Hamas' military machine' Hamas wants Israel to stop its attack on Gaza and release Palestinians arrested during the recent days. Egypt, the Arab world's traditional leader, has a role to play in defusing this crisis.
Malaysian airliner's crash over the rebel held territory in eastern Ukraine in which 298 lives perished has exacerbated tensions between the respective backers of the government in Kiev, namely the US and the EU, and Russia supporting the rebels. Telling Moscow to face 'pariah' status, the US and its European allies point accusatory finger at pro-Russian separatists and at Russia for supplying them with the missile they say was used to down the plane, Moscow denies any involvement laying the blame at the Ukrainian military's doorstep.
Israel continues its indiscriminate attacks on Gaza, killing over 1,000 people so far. Sadly but unsurprising in a recent statement the EU said it "strongly condemns" what it called indiscriminate fire into Israel by militant groups in Gaza, and "deplores" the growing number of casualties caused by " Israeli retaliatory fire".
Expressing deep anguish and concern over the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in Gaza due to relentless Israeli aggression, the PML-N government has taken the right step by calling for an unconditional cease-fire and an immediate end to the Gaza blockade.
Apropos 'Biden-Zardari meeting gives birth to wild speculations' carried by Business Recorder yesterday, it is interesting to note that former President Asif Ali Zardari, who is widely known for his political astuteness, has attracted a lot of media glare through his visit to the US. Accompanied, among others, by his son Bilawal and an old friend Dr Asim Husain, he has met everyone who matters in the US Congress.
Apropos 'Imran asks KPK chief to strive for share in CSF', carried by Business Recorder yesterday, it is heartening to note that the cricketer-turned-politician has attained political maturity.
