Pakistan Update

There are a few good articles with many details on the destabilizing conditions inside Pakistan right now as their civil war continues.

From Time Reporter Aryn Baker in Islamabad comes this report, detailing not only the war fronts, but also the politcal instability due to infighting between PPP (Zardari) and PML-N (Sharif) continues over non-essential matters. (side note, PPP and MQM seem to have reached some accomodation and we might see that as the future coalition, this even though they are rancorous rivals especially in Karachi.)

Bill Roggio has an update on a rare instance of cross-border cooperation on the Durand line.

Inside Pakistan the Taliban insurgency continues unabated as another checkpost is destroyed in Wana, and the Frontier Corps seized a huge weapons cache and might have freed those captive Iranian Border guards.
