Pakistan falling apart

Taliban militants in Pakistan extended their campaign of violence Thursday against the country’s security forces, targeting the navy for the third time this week with a bombing that killed five in the southern city of Karachi.

A roadside bomb blasted a bus that was carrying naval personnel, killing four people in the vehicle, along with a passing motorcyclist, officials said; at least five people were wounded. On Tuesday two naval buses in different parts of the city were bombed in almost identical attacks, killing four people and wounding 56. The Pakistani Taliban, which are closely allied with al Qaida, claimed responsibility for all the blasts.

It's just a matter of time before conservative neocons and liberal dreamers, both seeking to spread "democracy", once again join forces to urge intervention by U.S. ground troops in yet another Muslim country.
