"The Taliban's power in Pakistan continues to grow and it now has entire towns under its control. Under US pressure, the Pakistani army is fighting the Islamists -- with limited success. Pakistani intelligence says the Americans are doing more harm than good."

These are religious lunatics with guns who are less than a hundred miles away from nuclear weapons.
Unfortunately, the same thing could be said about people on military bases all over our country.
