For those of us trying to keep up with what’s happening on the subcontinent, the Economist offers this update on Pakistan, India, and the United States. Pervez Musharraf is tightening his grip on power more every day, but at the same time he’s helping us fight the war on terrorism. On the other hand, India says that Pakistan isn’t doing enough to stop terrorists from causing trouble in Kashmir, and there are reports of a major shootout between Indian and Pakistani forces earlier today. In the meantime, we’re sending an envoy back over there to settle things down, but we don’t seem to be doing anything to persuade Musharraf to give in to democracy even a little bit. What a mess.
