And things just got worse in Pakistan.

If the military - that same military that had Bin Laden so close by and just "never seemed to notice" - takes over the country or something, we might see some ugly politics go on.

takes over the country or something

That's actually been partially the case since the 70s. Even under a 'civilian', the military is pulling the strings.

Anyway... oh... dear. <Face Palm>

Step into your skin?

I'd rather jump into your bones.

Yeah.

If not even a general likes the way things are going, you know the military is gonna be uncontrollable.

The President of Pakistan has just about lost his authority if he needs to ask for USA Help to defeat his own military.

Good one.
Except for 4/1/2011. That day lingers in my memory like...metaphor here...I should go.

I wish I thought up Memogate...

I wish I did...

But it does seem things in Pakistan have only two modes: It Got Worse and It Got Worse.
The President of Pakistan has just about lost his authority if he needs to ask for USA Help to defeat his own military.

I don't think he ever had his own nominal authority to begin with.
Currently taking a break from the site. See my user page for more information.

Now that I look at it, Pakistan is basically just a junta.

[up] It's always been one.

Look at Benazir Bhutto's campaign for PM. She was a serious reform candidate, and look what happened?

Of course, dismantling the Pakistani army will only make things worse.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
