Pakistan, that US ally in the war on terror and likely harborer of Bin Laden, has some troubling news: Radio Spreads Talibans Terror in Pakistani Region That kind of reminds me of the two way TV described in 1984, but the Taliban make that society seem open by comparison. So, why not call the cops? Or the army? Does the local populace support these terrorists? Well, no: The Taliban are the real terrorists. We might be fighting them in Afganistan, but they are going to come across the border, and could just take over pakistan. Iraq certainly had a repressive government, but it didn't have anything like the Taliban. Pakistan, unlike Iraq, is a nuclear power, and is struggling to keep from becoming a terrorist state. Scared yet?
