Thursday, April 23, 2009Look at this epic picture of Taliban riding in a Toyota pick-up truck. They're parading through a newly conquered Pakistani province, Buner, population: 1,000,000. The Taliban takeover took place without resistance. The province was signed away by a turncoat politician.
The Taliban - with al-Qaeda in tow - is now 60 miles from Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan.
Islamabad is heavily fortified; there's a Green Zone around the parliament. But the highway into the city is apparently undefended: the Pakistanis have so far mounted only a tiny force, which was driven back by the Taliban.
If fighting breaks out within the capital, you can bet the government is toast. Now what do you think these men would do with Pakistan's 40-100 nuclear weapons and missiles that can hit Israel?
Nobody knows, and that's why Hillary Clinton just called this unfolding catastrophe a "mortal threat to the world."
The stars themselves are blinking in disbelief.
