Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Musharraf announces resignation.

Dude's been the cork in a gallon jug full of pure crazy for a long time. Without Musharraf to keep 'em down, the jihadis are liable to run wild in Islamabad. The next regime in Pakistan will make Mahmoud Ahmadinejad looks like a harmless schoolboy.

Afghanistan on steroids, with nukes.

UPDATE: Ed Morrissey is more optimistic than me, which isn't hard, since I expect we're no more than 180 days from an al-Qaeda-backed jihadist coup in Islamabad.

The West Bank on PCP, with nukes.

    Maybe this progress will spread to Tehran.
