What I actually like about the scary news from Pakistan (if it actually leads to an open struggle between Bhutto and her secularist faction/the Islamist faction/and Musharraf’s secular military faction) is this: We’ll finally have an answer.
Pakistan has been the picture of denial for almost ten years now with its intractable rivalries maintaining a heated limbo. Much like the open fight that broke out in Palestine this year between Hamas and Fatah, we are finally getting to the bottom of things.
