Quite a bit has been happening in Pakistan recently. We’ve had Taliban advances to within 100km of Islamabad (though they then abandoned that position), the increasing adoption of Sharia law in various parts of the country, and renewed contempt for a government that seems incapable of dealing with this threat. Oh, and don’t forget an economy hit by the world recession (though not as badly as one might think), widespread corruption and heightened tensions with India. However bad the government has been though, I am not sure whether any power could solve these problems easily.
