All Holy Hell

From the NY Times: A wave of recent attacks shows that the Taliban, al-Qaeda and militant groups are tightening an alliance aimed at bringing down the Pakistani state.

This is why I get so irked when I see Americans not balancing their mind-numbing reality TV with some hard, solid news. You see, Pakistan has nuclear weapons (a fact, I would bet, that a large majority of Americans don't know). If the Taliban and al-Qaeda are successful in taking over Pakistan...well...I think you get the picture.
