#5 Actually, having the taliban take over in Pakistan would be a good thing. Then we can quit pretending that Pakistan is an ally, and stomp them into the ground, as many so richly deserve. Attacking south out of Afghanistan and north through a Marine amphibious landing, with India attacking from the east would put a hurt on Pakistan like nothing else every envisioned. The first attack needs to take out the nukes...

#6 A Sadat moment, a Zia moment, a Bhutto pere moment. None of them good moments for those departed "leaders"...

#7 A Sadat moment, a Zia moment, a Bhutto pere moment. None of them good moments for those departed "leaders"...

When Pakistan says "departed leader", they mean it.

As is too often the case, the traditional instability of autocracies seems to have coalesced into a discordant yet perverse sympathetic resonance within the MME (Muslim Middle East). While Iraq may have served as some sort of "quantum butterfly", to begin this domino chain reaction, the inherent brittleness of Muslim institutions more likely plays a greater role.

Nonetheless, the convergence of political turmoil in Iraq, Iran and, now, Pakistan all present some significant challenges to American military planners. I would love to see Old Patriot's scenario come to pass. While I remain concerned regarding our ability to field the expeditionary force required for such an action, it would send a truly unmistakable message to our other putative "allies"—Saudi Arabia in particular—that no further duplicity will be tolerated.

I can only add how—woe beset as Bush's tenure has been—far better that the rather inconvenient advent of this new crisis comes now while there is still some fight left in the White House, rather than having the wave crest during the watch of some spineless democrat.

That General Kiyani looks a young Zia Ul Haq.

Zia hanged Bhutto, the man who had promoted him above others to Army Chief....

Perv may regret his trust in Kiyani...
