Pakistan on the edge?

From a Christian correspondent in Pakistan . . .

The political situation in Pakistan is on edge right now and on May 12, Sunday, about 40 people were killed and hundreds were injured in a political rally in Karachi, the largest city of Pakistan. On May 14, in a hotel in Peshawar city in northern Pakistan, 30 more people died in a suicide bomb attacked and hundreds were injured.  Yesterday in some fundamentalist areas many were killed in a gunshot. Government parties and opposition parties are now on a political war because judiciary (Supreme Court) is also involved in it and many sources say that it is creating a way for Army Rule.

More here and here.

While I think president Musharraf has done alot for the country, I think that Pakistan will never be on the path towards real democracy untill there is complete snd total seperation of the executive and judiciary.

I personally have thought and still think the two worst countries on earth are Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

These two countries are basically twin brothers full of hatred for the world. No other countries produce more fanatics hell bent on destroying everyone and everything non-Islamic.

Pakistan is the scariest country on earth as it has a stone age culture teamed up with a nuclear arsenal. How these guys always get a free pass on the world scene is beyond me?

Iran will be scary when she gets her nukes, but no one scares me like Pakistan, and I think I'm about to get a little more scared soon.

"Iran will be scary when she gets her nukes"

Hardly - Iran will be nuked long before that - and the sooner the better.

Send more aid to Pakistan and F-16's/Apaches to Pakistan Army to fight all these fanatics.

It will be much appreciated.

The largest contributor of AID to Pakistan, comes from North America, with the bulk coming from USA.

It has not made one iota of difference.

They have chosen to infect themselves with islamofacism.

The only thing that stands in the way of Pakistan nuking what it calls infidels, in the future, is faulty wiring, from lack of concern for the physical world--bunch of rape supporting sickos!
