    UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon deserves respect and commendation, by condemning the brutal killing of Shias in Pakistan. He will do a much greater service to humanity by condemning the targeted and untargeted killings going unabated in Karachi Pakistan. To bring back Pakistan fron the brink of destruction this is bare minimum. Only such responses from International agencies will put some sense into the heads of those who matter most in this unfortunate country.
