Harsh landings in two renamed airports

(Above photos - Beirut international airport and Islamabad international airport... Nevermind the renames)
Compare and contrast:
“Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Friday named Islamabad International airport as Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Islamabad.”
“On June 22, 2005, Beirut International Airport was renamed Rafic Hariri International Airport.”
“In a letter to secretary general of the united nations, there was a “Request for the formation of a United Nations international investigation commission into the assassination of Ms Benazir Bhutto to be known as the Ms. Benazir Bhutto inquiry commission”
“April 7, 2005: The UN Security Council orders an international investigation into the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.”

Trust me, there will be turbulent times ahead for Pakistan and the landing will not be soft.... After all, it all starts with an airport where fundamentalism can land!
