The situation in Pakistan is much worse than you are hearing. Much of the coverage (here at Atlas) is the increasing power grab of pious Muslims ("fundamentalists) in SWAT and the rise of the Taliban as well. But the power that holds that fragile tinderbox together is the military, and the military appears to be fracturing. Should that happen, true Islam ("Islamists") will take over that country. Think jihad with nukes.
Should the Pakistani military split, the Taliban will seize control. The specter of Muslim "extremists" seizing power and handing over the country's nuclear weapons to Al Qaeda is very real.
Will B. Hussein call for a US military invasion into Pakistan and "persuade" the Pakistani military to turn over its nukes? As I pointed out yesterday, Obama is clueless. That, or he's dangerous - we know he loves chaos. Either way, he has no plan. But know, the situation in Pakistan is much worse than they are letting on.
Apparently the problem in the Pakistan military is within the junior ranks of the army - right up to Majors. There are many who will not take up arms against the Taleban, "seen as 'kindred' souls - in the struggle against the West in general, and the US in particular. To that extent the army is reverting to its post Zia identity as a guardian of the Islamic faith and according it a higher priority than the defence of national sovereignty, territorial integrity and the values enshrined in Pakistan's constitution."
