    “…It is a crisis not merely of politics, or class, or the left; it is a crisis of character, a questioning of what it means to be human, an uncertainty as to how we become fully human.”

    The title Not Peace but War brings to mind the above quote as well as essay of Western Troubles between estranged… This is not completely off topic (India/Pakistan) in that both attempt to explain turn of events aiding or inhibiting comity (peace).

    It may have been a surprise to the punditariat, but it’s inconceivable that it was a surprise to Sharif or to the Pakistani military. For an Indian aircraft to make an unannounced visit to Lahore while Sharif was there would have been, shall we say, problematic. There is the, perhaps faint, possibility that the two sides have decided to try and normalize relations. Both countries have more than enough internal problems to deal with. Shouldn’t we give them the benefit of the doubt rather than dismissing the gesture?
