The prime minister of Pakistan was ordered to be arrested,by the Pakistani high court .
His arrest was ordered because of allegation of corruption .
The court was under pressure to do this, because of clashes with a cleric,who has ties to the military .
The military can now intervene .

I have no idea what the semantics of any of that truely means ,but the PM being arrested,cannot be good.


Miss me?

Not good? Pakistan was hardly a paragon of freedom & democracy, was it? And it's not likely to have much effect on willingness to co-operate with U.S. military operations, since the U.S. hasn't taken much notice of Pakistian's views on what it does for some time, have they.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

They hanged one prime minister a few years back, so an arrest is nothing much

Taun said it correctly. That would be a coup once hes arrested or flees the country.

Pakistan's "stability" probably leaves some US generals up nights eating tums.  If that government experienced a real coup where the ISI won over the civilian authorities then we in the US might have to seriously consider intervention.  It could be a nightmare scenario where there are no winners.  The truth is that Pakistan is the real enemy in the region and we pay them to keep the quiet and to keep their nukes in plain sight.  My guess is that someone here also made it very clear to them that if they threaten us with those nukes they would be giving themselves a death sentence.

I dread to think what would happen if pakistan ends up under the wrong leadership.
But maybe a change of goverment is what it really needs?

IF one trusts the info coming from our government - and I still try to - then Pakistan is a government within a government.  The civilian side balances the military/spy apparatus (ISI) that is heavily pro Islamic.  So who knows.... but if the "Islamic Bomb" ends up in the hands of a group that is willing to threaten it's use then it's a real problem for the region and the world.  No good answers I'm afraid......

If you think the army is heavily "pro-Islamic" then you are lost. The Lal Masjid is evidence of this and there are many more examples.

There is a conflict between the people. A good chunk of them want Islamic law there and it does seem they will fight for it to be installed.

Perhaps I am - I admit to parroting info from news, not personal knowledge.  But what I do know is that if Islamist radicals gain control of the weapons and codes of nukes then Pakistan could be DESTROYED.  If the people there are so devoted to their religion that this is okay with them...then I guess it's okay with me as well.  As long as they are snuffed out before they kill millions of people who want no part of their religion.  This is my only point - if they live in peace with the rest of the world I wish them well.  If they demand a leadership that wants to spread Islam by the sword then I hope they will be stopped no matter what it takes.  Fair enough?
