Failed State Alert: 1,395 Pakistanis Killed in 1842 Terrorist Attacks So Far This Year
Will Pakistan be the first nation to fall to the Islamists during Obama’s watch?
It’s looking that way.
This week the Pakistani government released Al-Qaeda linked Red Mosque leader Maulana Abdul Aziz.
The last time we saw Maulana he was fleeing the Red Mosque in a burka.

So far this year 1,395 Pakistanis have been killed in 1842 terrorist attacks from January to March.
The Daily Times reported:
The government failed to table even a single inquiry report in parliament on 1,842 terrorist attacks from January to March that killed at least 1,395 people and causing losses amounting to millions of rupees.
Replying to two identical questions by MNAs Marvi Memon and Nighat Parveen, the Interior Ministry told the Lower House on Friday that during first three months of the current year, Balochistan was the worst-hit by terrorism – with a total of 1,122 terrorist attacks that killed 436 people, followed by NWFP with 692 attacks that killed 732 people, Punjab with 12 attacks that killed 119 people, Sindh with 9 attacks that killed 21 people and Islamabad with 7 attacks that killed 87 people.
The ministry provided estimated losses to private properties, but said that losses to public properties, possibly amounted to billions of rupees, had not been calculated yet.
US experts reported yesterday that Pakistan is on course to become an Islamist nuclear state.
