The headache in Pakistan
Pakistan is a headache for the West, with its 185 million Muslims suffering a fragile combination of its military, the only viable national institution (civil Punjabi elite descended from British India) and a growing threat of Islamic terrorists. That balance may be coming unhinged, and then a bigger headache. Chaos in Pakistan would threaten further mischief in the 1.3-billion ummah, the Islamic world stretching from Zamboanga in the southern Philippines to Dakar in West Africa.
