I will keep on using this miniscule platform to yell about the collapse of things in Pakistan and warn of incipient dangers in Afpak to make the following points:
We are risking turning Pakistan over to a rogue Taliban leadsrship that will have no hesitation in precipitating a nuclear incident of unpredictable and highly dangerous character.
We are proving by actual experience that it is fruitless to believe we can conduct anything like a ground war in Afghanistan.
We are proving by the slavish attention to swine flu by US media that we have no capacity in the US to conduct anything approaching a rational approach to events in the world.
To be fair, the New York Times did lead with an editorial today regarding last week’s near takeover 60 miles from Islamabad. SOURCE
We are counting down in Pakistan and no one is really listening.
