Submission

In case there was any doubt in anyone’s mind about the Taliban’s victory over the Pakistani government in the northwestern valley of Swat, President Zardari today formalized his nation’s abject surrender with a signed document.

This means that the imposition of the Taliban’s barbaric totalitarian theocracy, a central feature of which is the sexually perverted and grotesquely sadistic repression and enslavement of women, may now proceed with the government’s official blessing.

Perhaps “victory over the Pakistani government” misrepresents the facts: in the minds of a great many Pakistanis, and of many in the Pakistani military and intelligence forces, this is no defeat at all, but a battle won.
