Jules Crittenden speculates on what the future may hold for Pakistan as a result of the assassination:
I have a very bad feeling about all of this. The potential for critically destablizing a flank that was difficult enough as it was, is huge. I’d feel slightly better if Rumsfeld had doubled the size of the Army, and wish Bush and Congress would crank that up. This war is far from over. This war is no artificial Bush creation or figment of anyone’s imagination, and should still be very much part of our own election, wishful thinking notwithstanding.
The Pakistani Spectator blog reports that chaos is ensuing in Pakistan.
