On Islamabad and protests

Happening now at the time of this posting is a riot in the capital city of Pakistan, Islamabad.

The source of the riot is the barring of former minister Sharif from holding public office by President Zardari.  The rioters are knocking over cans and hurling torches and the rioters have been encouraged by Sharif to continue to cause damage and harm.

I’m very concerned with these events as Pakistan is already suffering from without and within.  Pakistan as you can see in the following map is surrounded by potential enemies.  Afghanistan to the west, India to the south and the American forces who have been systematically dropping bombs in pilot less ships in between.
