Monday, April 27, 2009Many Pakistanis <3 the Taliban and hate the United States. That's what I gather from a very recent poll in Islamabad - the capital city under imminent threat from the Taliban. More than half the city's population see the Taliban as "heroes." Three percent remotely like the U.S.
If you think the Pakistani people are going to violently reject the Taliban and defend democracy, you might be expecting much too much.
Keep in mind, Pakistan is the worst off in this global depression. Just as Germany was in the early 30s.
