It appears that a military takeover is imminent in Pakistan, as M.J. Akbar has reasoned in this blog post.
Nero fiddled while Rome burnt; Zardari was frolicking in Europe while Pakistan flooded.
UPDATE: The Daily Telegraph reports (on 2010/08/25) that Pakistan’s floods have left a country that’s too difficult to rule; the government in Islamabad is floundering and ripe for a coup – if anyone wanted to launch one, says its op-ed columnist Con Coughlin.
