Unscrupulous mullahs, Pakistani culture imploding, Islam and ignorant, uneducated people can be a really messed up combination. The only thing that could make it much worse would be if those fun loving galoots had access to nuclear weapons, and a large population living in the USA....oh yeah, I guess they do.
