With a fresh wave of violent attacks in Pakistan that’s left dozens dead, this time in the border city of Lahore, the big question is when will the Army stage the next coup in the Islamic nation.
The Lahore attacks on the buildings of security agencies (Federal Investigation Agency and two police training centers) is the fifth attack in the last 10 days in Pakistan.
The repeated attacks by the Taliban on the security agencies serve to completely weaken and delegitimize the government in the eyes of the Pakistani people.
Past coups in Pakistan have usually been accompanied by the excuse that the civilian administration has failed to do its job (although it’s ironical that lately the attackers have made a monkey out of the security forces).
We’ll see how long it takes for the next coup to happen in Pakistan.
If the Pakistanis had any sense, they’d drop all that Islamic nonsense and merge with India.
