I was wrong for the right reason. They look placed to control either main party's
coalition. The regional government they won is in the Northwest Frontier, too -- as in
Khyber Pass and Peshawar. Voter turnout has been very poor, as most Pakistanis realize
the election is a sham (contrary to what Bush's press spokesman seems to think). This
will just increase the pressure on the
pressure cooker there.
