Bad timing

The eastern end of our excellent adventure seems to have taken some new directions. China Matters analyzes the reporting on the US/Pakistan encounter in Pakistan that left a bunch of dead Pakistanis, and how our faithful nuclear armed ally is dealing with it. Summoning the US Ambassador Patterson to receive an official protest must mean they are disgruntled.

Meanwhile, a ragtag army of lawyers is advancing on Islamabad, demanding the reinstatement of the judges fired by Musharraf, our buddy. Our buddy seems to be hanging on by his fingernails, difficult for one of his physical stature. Might the border conflict be the straw that broke our buddy's back?
