So how long does Pakistan have left before total melt down

1 month, 6 months a year or will the US n A step in before the nukes go rogue.
Presumably they have all the nuclear sites targetted? I just wonder what they will strike with?

They need Musharraf back, at least he kept order to some degree, this current leader was swept to power on a wave of emotion after the Benazir bhutto assassination, as always when people think with their hearts rather then their heads it turns out badly...What the h*ll can you do about it though? if it became necessary to destroy their nuclear facilities , you'd have to be fcuking sure we got them all in the first strike, otherwise who knows what the retaliation could be? Trying to go in on the ground and occupy the place would be unfeasible without several million troops we don't have, and even then would be very bl00dy and difficult...

Retaken:

Pakistani security forces say they have taken control of a police academy that was seized by a group of gunmen.

Television footage showed paramilitary troops celebrating on the roof of the compound, near Lahore, after they had besieged the building for eight hours.

Up to 40 people were reported to have been killed and 80 injured, but the situation remains confused.

A senior interior ministry official said four militants had been killed and several others had been arrested.

Officials announced that the siege had ended after sustained heavy gunfire lasting 10-15 minutes.

Dozens of people had been trapped inside the building.

The assault came less than a month after gunmen attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore.

In that attack, six policemen were killed, while up to 14 gunmen escaped

The day Pakistan is attacked the "No Whites" signs would go back up in parts of Birmingham and it would kick off at least here anyway. Chapattis everywhere they'll be.

Darn, I only looked at this thread because I thought it was about a critical response to the latest in that long line of "comedy gold" films featuring the antics of dysfunctional LAPD cops!

Other news is reporting that Police in Paktia was also targetted today.

I wonder if the meeting round the rug in Wazaristan went somewhat like this last month:

"You go that way, i'll go that way and lets do in the each others rozzers"

These evil muftis, what are they like?
