Ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif
calls Pakistan a failed state. The
government high-ups don't give a damn about
or Pakistan's unemployed, poor or hungry.
It won't be long before we see
Information Minister Sherry Rehman in BURQA and President
Zardari in Turban and long Beard. The beautiful valley of
Swat, a major tourist location just a few years ago, is
already under Taliban control. See Dec 29th, 2008 news
The capitol Islamabad is only 100 miles away from Swat.
Peshawar is being softened by increased bombings inside the
city before its final takeover. Can’t the government do more
than routinely condemning blasts and loss of life and going
back to hand shaking and photo opps as soon as an alarming
situation cools down.
