Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs Blog is very concerned about the imminent collapse of the pakistan Government:
The situation in Pakistan is much worse than you are hearing. Much of the coverage (here at Atlas) is the increasing power grab of pious Muslims (“fundamentalists) in SWAT and the rise of the Taliban as well. But the power that holds that fragile tinderbox together is the military, and the military appears to be fracturing. Should that happen, true Islam (“Islamists”) will take over that country.
Marcus Wilder, the author of Naïve & Abroad: Pakistan, Travel in a Land of Mullahs, has said frequently “Sharia Law encourages child brides and wife beating.” Imagine an Al Qaeda lead Pakistani government — with nuclear weapons. “Child brides and wife beating” will be just the beginning.
Apparently the problem in the Pakistan military is within the junior ranks of the army – right up to Majors. There are many who will not take up arms against the Taleban, “seen as ‘kindred’ souls – in the struggle against the West in general, and the US in particular. To that extent the army is reverting to its post Zia identity as a guardian of the Islamic faith and according it a higher priority than the defence of national sovereignty, territorial integrity and the values enshrined in Pakistan’s constitution.” (here)
Want to bet that Israel will be the first target — right after the 800 million people of India — the world’s largest democracy?
Wanna bet they will both beg us for help — and get nothing?
