Spencer Ackermann at the Washington Independent reports:
"Pakistani Government in Danger of Falling?
Not necessarily from the Taliban, but from a military coup responding to the threat the Taliban poses to the viability of Pakistan. Fox News reports that Gen. David Petraeus is telling people privately that the next two weeks (!) are a test of the Zardari government’s survivability."
Just the kind of news we want to hear.
Well, a couple of months is probably par for the course with Pakistan's experiments with "democracy." On the other hand, the report is from Fox News, so there is a pretty good chance that the current Pakistani government will last longer than Ancient Rome.
