A Nuclear Power In Crisis And Nobody Cares

It never ceases to amaze me what is deemed newsworthy and what isn't. Pakistan has been in full crisis mode ever since its Gen. Pervez Musharraf resigned. Is it getting any press in North America? I understand not covering the delightful dismemberment of Belgium. After all, who cares about Belgium? Pakistan is not so easily ignored. Lest we forget, Pakistan is a full fledged member of then nuclear club. It is also a critical ally in the war on terror. The direction which the country takes following its presidential elections are crucial not only in southern and central Asia but around the world. But who cares about that when we can spend hours dissecting Hillary's speech for any hint of bitterness. God help us all.

Excellent Post. The 24 hour infotainment services - oops, I meant news - we are provided today never ceases to amaze me.

Pretty sad when you find yourself looking for nuggets like, "At least they didn't discuss the color of her outfit and what it represented." But there is still post-analysis so I don't want to speak too soon ; ).

Thank the liberals in Canada for the silence about Pakistan.

Clowns like Haroon Siddiqui are praising Musharraf leaving but is the country better off?

I hope the Pakistanis start another war with India so all these "politically correct" liberals look foolish.

About as foolish as Dion's Green Shaft.
