Winding the clock


Pakistan has The Bomb.

Pakistan is the sixth most populous country in the world.

Pakistan has uneasy relations with India, and still hasn't forgiven India for yet again kicking its butt in Kashmir in 1999. (That same year both countries tested their respective nucs, too.)

Pakistan is our supposed Islamic ally in the War On Terror in the Middle East. Pakistan borders Afghanistan, and is widely thought to be the haven to which Taliban bigwigs run when occupying Coalition U.S. forces get too close.

Pakistan has a nasty little habit of selling nuclear technology to other rogue states.

Pakistan has declared emergency martial law. If you're not a Musharraf-supporter, you are placed in house-arrest. About 60+ political activists are arrested, including all of Bhutto's camp.

It's impressive when a government is so very wrong, that they make a crowd of angry, yelling attorneys look right. But that's what they've managed to do in Pakistan.


Tick. Tick. Tick.

I first heard the blurb about cops beating lawyers with sticks and dosing them with tear gas. Cool, I thought, although it's a bit early for the Democrat convention and the Breck Girl was a long shot anyway.

Then I saw that it was in Pakistan. I'm witholding judgement on this one until I learn more. If he is REALLY using this as an opportunity to crack down on the "tribes" that are causing so much trouble in Waziristan, then I'm willing to let things play out.

Benazir Bhutto is the key. If he leaves her alone while doing an Osama beatdown then he might be serious.

He had a point about Abe Lincoln, too. But I don't expect the press to know anything more about Abe than he was the father of the lightbulb.
