In my opinion, the title of this post is misleading-even if fully unintentional.
My sentiments exactly.
When I first read the headline on BBC, I thought, "Oh, boy - we're in for it now." But, after reading the story I was surprise to find out it was
the radicals in that region that bombed in an attempt to scare the people of these tribal regions from participating with the U.S. (or international
I think the assumptions here are dead on.
As I stated in the thread I referenced above:
Pakistan is a propped up government that holds nuclear armament. Their President, Asif Ali Zardari and his current administration is in a very fragile
state. The president was a practically unknown person in political terms and was elected on the premise that he was Benazir Bhutto's husband, who was
expected to win the coming election but was assassinated. The country had previous been ruled by a U.S. propped Military Dictator. Now when U.S.
incursions take place crossing the Afghan-Pakistani border it's forcing Zardari to denounce these U.S. incursions, yet the forces are only seeking
out those that killed Bhutto. Zardari is fearful that his administration will be toppled if too much cooperation occurs with the U.S. on Pakistani
soil. Then, we have nukes in the hands of the regime that seizes control if a coup were to occur.
Mark my word: Pakistan is the coming international crisis.
