Well, turns out Pakistan is now putting its notional territorial sovereignty above its participation in the War on Terror. While we may paper over this diplomatically given the return of an elected government in Islamabad, this effectively moves Pakistan into the “neutral” (at best) or “terrorist-sponsoring” column.
Why do I say “notional?” Because under the Waziristan Accords, Islamabad has essentially devolved sovereignty over the area in question to tribal leaders, on paper, but the Taliban and al-Qâ’ida in practice.
Let’s hope it’s not as bad as it sounds.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
