Pakistan surrenders

This is a really bad development which seems as though it is being ignored by the MSM. Pakistan's new government has reached an "accord" with the terrorist elements in those infamous "border territories" which will see it pull the army out in exchange for an agreement by the terrorists to stop homicide bombings: http://washingtontimes.com/article/20080522/FOREIGN/510395498/1003/foreign.

In essence, what this means is that al Qaeda and its sympathizers now control a large swath of Pakistan adjacent to the Afghan border. If someone can tell me how this is in any way a good or even a neutral development, I'm willing to listen.

Thanks for sharing this. It is very bad news and it is going to back it much harder for us to go after the terrorists.
