    Pakistan is about to have parliamentary elections. With a recent background of Bhutto being assassinated by the ISI, plus all that good **** with the Taliban in the north and the US and the nukes and 'Al Quada', it should be a fun time.

    How many locals will die in total? Betting begins now!

    Don't be a drama queen. Lunatics with access to nuclear weapons- what could possibly go wrong?:twitch:
    I'd expect the violence to calm down in the next month or so. Interestingly enough the economy there seems to be going quite strongly from reports I've seen. Hopefully if the economic growth is shared throughout the society it will help alleviate the conditions which lead some towards radicalism.
