  1. Using internet is simple as hell. But I can tell y ou right now, it can be very hard, if you are the first time user.
    So, first thing I suggest – open the Explorer, and type in the address you like.
    You’ll get there really fast, it depends on your connection speed.
    Good luck.

  2. I don’t think this is about young idealism that cnaghe can be brought on by youthful exuberance and willful hope. I think there is a strong force in Pakistan that once it puts aside its fear and bands together in large numbers (which I believe do exist) I do think that they can prevail against all the other forces (corrupt government, gangs, ethnic violence, drug warfare) and bring the cnaghe that is very much so needed. Do not get me wrong, I don’t think the fear is unfounded but a force that can be fought against. I disagree that the media should not be covering these murders. They should be covered because no matter how negatively this portrays Pakistan these killings are still occurring and this is media censorship. At the moment the innocent lives are being ignored and not being acknowledged just as if they had not existed. I see no harm in media coverage and only benefits that exposure may help end these deaths. Maybe this is what the individuals that are instigating the killings want? Maybe they want media exposure and at this point to spare more lives they should be given the exposure? And if Pakistanis are so concerned about their negative image something should be done about changing that and not hiding the realities of life there. Maybe shame is what Pakistan needs to instigate cnaghe? I believe it is Pakistan’s fault that the shootings are not being covered because the country is known for being full of terrorists and extremists. In actuality these facts are completely and entirely true. These shootings have turned into, oh there are more people being murdered in Pakistan, oh just more shooting. Oh well, as expected. If it is political parties that has been ordering these killings and giving teenagers guns and instigating ethic and drug warfare should it not be exposed? Exposure and the truth brings upon cnaghe and not hiding it and putting it away in a box. That fixes nothing. So the international media may not be covering it because it doesn’t sell, because it doesn’t have the chance to erupt into an international situation any time soon, or because it is an everyday no real big thing event. Doesn’t that push all informed and educated people to do something? Old and young? Rich and poor? Don’t people want cnaghe what this country has become and its image? Hiding what the country really is does nothing but make it worse. Expose the the negative and then deal with it.
