So which should be our priority, defending democracy or fighting terrorists, and what do we do if a democratic country votes in the terrorists? That is only one of the issues in the chaos that is Pakistan.

Unfortunately, our man, President Musharraf, is repressing moderate secularists as well as Islamic extremists, and maybe more so. Does anyone have any suggestions? This article is somewhat consoling, if it is correct, maintaining that the jihadists are few in number and that we need to support the moderate majority.
