Who knows if those strong men will be willing to push the limit with their nuclear power as well?

    At the moment Pakistan's ruling party is a secular Leftist party, the Pakistan People's Party. And Islamic extremists have never done well in Pakistani elections.

    Relax we don't like extremists on any side…..Pakistani

  3. Pakistan is controlled by an oligarchy that controls most if not all of the wealth. The military is well paid to guard the wealthy.

    "But the extreme fanatics are always going to be able to have the sympathy of the majority while the majority is in wretched poverty."

    It would be worthwhile to study why that has been the case in much of the Arab world but not, so far, in Pakistan — despite levels of corruption that are among the worst in the world, and despite the fact that the US is more hated in Pakistan than almost anywhere else in the world.
