The Red Mosque siege in Islamabad, Pakistan is moving into its fifth day with more rocket exchanges and shots fired as hard line clerics spur those inside to greater violence and the crowds in the streets call for Musharraf's head. Just today shots were fired at the Pakistani President's aircraft as it flew over Rawalpindi. Pakistan is a nuclear nation not just some backwater where radical Muslims are fighting one another for tribal dominance. A coup d'etat in Islamabad is one thing; a full on civil war would be another. One can be certain that the Indian Army is keeping a close eye on the events as should every American interested in knowing where the nuclear material that could rain down on them one day originated.
