Pakistan Imran Khan rally draws tens of thousands
Tens of thousands of people have turned out at a rally in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi for former cricketer turned politician Imran Khan.
Mr Khan, who has been an established politician for many years but has struggled to win votes, has seen his support increase recently.
Correspondents say he has been riding a wave of disillusionment, particularly among the urban middle class.
The next national elections are scheduled for 2013.

In the east, the military holds absolute power through might. Power derives from the barrel of a gun, so said the devil Mao. Once they have the might, they will not let go. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The Paki holds absolute power today, with their keys to nukes, which holds US, India, China, Middle East to hostage, and earned economic gains by playing one with another, and the old 'terrorist' red flags of bombs to remain relevant.
The US army is training a crack unit to seal off and snatch back Pakistani nuclear weapons in the event that militants, possibly from inside the country’s security apparatus, get their hands on a nuclear device or materials that could make one.
The specialized unit would be charged with recovering the nuclear materials and securing them.
Question is, is this the way, ethical or simply expendient way to rule a nation?

do you think it would be a good thing for the people of Pakistan for this man to become president? And you said he is "anti-American" but so are a whole lot of other American allies. In fact, pretty much the whole world is Anti-American, at least when it comes to their government.
I doubt this man's displeasure with the West would stop him from being bought out like the rest of the world leaders. Everyone has a price.

Don't you mean U.S. led NATO imperialist invasion and occupation.
