Scorecard after the Pakistan assault:
Fundamentalist -1
Pakistan people/players/cricket/supporters/world cricket -0

Sadly, and for the sake of player security, the people of Pakistan must be denied the world cup.

The government will be deemed remiss in their duty of care to these players that stepped up to fill a vacated schedule.

The lunatic element of this society that is incapable of ANY tolerance to difference will get what they want through these actions... less outside contact.

When wholesale change is made to the mindset of the people within this region, so that no one at any level of society will tolerate these hateful attitudes and actions, acceptance will come from the rest of the global community.

I'm not holding my breath!
