Is Pakistan about to become a really big story?
Getting some vibes that we may see major worries from that part of the globe in the next eight weeks.
Well, yeah. The Taliban is going to go to war with the government over control of their nuclear weapons and one side will be defeated.
Glad you saw it coming. What do you think Obama's plans are?
e n m: Yes, vague. I only put it out there because it seems like it's a potentially huge story, but there hasn't been a lot of detail (to me at least) to establish what the risks are. I'm only reading that in parts of Pakistan there is trouble a-brewin' but how to assess the strength of the Taliban? What are the numbers? What percentage of Pakistanis are pro-Taliban? Etc.
