An attempt to understand the enormity of the crisis facing Pakistan.

Will Gen. Pervez Musharraf be able to save the country from economic ruin, control corruption, curb the fundamentalists, keep the army happy and yet make peace with India? As several Pakistani contributors themselves point out, all this is highly unlikely. But if Musharraf fails, the fundamentalists are waiting to take over.
