Dawn, leading Pakistani newspaper, editorializes against military courts proposal

Dawn, a leading Pakistani newspaper, is running a strong New Year's Eve editorial arguing that military courts are not the answer to the country's problems. The lede:
PAKISTAN should not have military courts, not in the expanded form envisioned by the military and political leadership of the country, not to try civilians on terrorism charges and not even for a limited period of time. Military courts are simply not compatible with a constitutional democracy.
