Pakistan's military-intelligence complex is too preoccupied with countering India to mount a serious campaign against radicals who threaten the nation's survival. The country is being destroyed from within.
Don’t be fooled by the recent positive news from Islamabad. We face the potential of a nuclear-armed state run by Islamic extremists. The consequences of a Taliban-led takeover of Islamabad would be devastating.
A post-Musharraf Pakistan faces a future that could include military coups, growing extremism, a potential collapse of the state or a move toward rogue-nation status. There is no easy fix for Islamabad.
