If you are headed to Pakistan – watch your back

So much goes on in the murky world of Polictics that we often do not know what is afoot until long after the fact. Take a look at today’s bombshell for instance.

Everyone seemed to be shocked to hear that North Korea came clean about their nuclear weapons capability and were rewarded by the lifting of some sanctions. This is a total “180″ from their behavior not that long ago when they were flexing their nutrition-deprived muscles and thumbing their noses at the rest of the world.

This in turn is making me wonder about the threats from Afghanistan’s President Karzai to Pakistan. President Karzai has been very vocal regarding Pakistan’s involvement in his country’s border area and his warnings suggesting Afghanistan’s intent to attack their neighbor seems to be starting to agitate the Paskistani authorities. Which makes me wonder….is Karzai’s theatrics a way to open the door for his U.S. protectors to launch an attack on the Pakistani border?

If this is the case, than Americans travelling to Pakistan should really consider if they need to be there and if they do, they should give serious consideration to their safety while there. We were recently contacted by a U.S. company who had business in Pakistan and rightfully so, they were worried for their safety. There are no doubt, many sympathizers in Pakistan, especially near the Afghan border who have little love for America or it’s citizens. Further strikes (no matter how justifeid they may be), will only heighten this dislike/distrust.

If you are headed to that region, be well aware of what might lay ahead and plan accordingly.
