Pakistan seems like a really fucked up place. I know what you're thinking. It can't be worse than Berwyn. Well, let me tell you my friends it just might be. Are these guys fighting terrorism or not? Whose side are they on? Frankly, I don't think they are on any side. It looks like what we have here is a classic case of opportunism meets good old fashioned militarism. Remember those corrupt governments that the US sets up and backs, regardless of how brutal they are? Well, from time to time they come into their own and when they do they tend to bite us in the ass. Case in point, Iran. But, don't take my word for it, read Chalmers Johnson's "Blowback" if you need a second opinion. In the meantime, it appears that the Pakistani government will be providing safe haven for terrorists. A rugged area of the country where angels fear to tread. A kind of campground for lunatics called Waziristan:

But, don't fret cuz apparently Osama won't be welcome here. If he decides to show up to the party we shut off the music, untap the keg and ignore him:

Yo, fuck that, party on!!! Osama is apparently too much of a party animal to ignore:

So, we aren't going to be sure about our ally Pakistan and their role in the war on terror any time soon. I doubt we will ever see these backwards ass, rubber-tire sandaled, cave morlocks join the rest of the civilized world:

Then again, maybe civilization is hard to attain when there is so much $$$$$ to be made:
