Taliban Suicide Attack Kills 60 In Pakistan
The world is a dangerous place:
More than 60 people were killed Thursday when two suicide bombers attacked Pakistanís largest weapons manufacturing complex, just north of the capital, the deadliest attack by the Taliban in their escalating campaign against the government.
The attack came just days after the resignation of President Pervez Musharraf left two rival political parties in the governing coalition haggling over the question of succession and added a new layer of turbulence to an unstable, nuclear-armed nation. Neither party has been eager to take on the campaign against the militants, which is seen here as an American conflict foisted on Pakistan.
Some "Serious People" think we do not have enough issues in the world and need to take on Russia by expanding NATO to Georgia and the Ukraine. I disagree.
