Pakistan on the verge of catastrophic meltdown

Pakistan is struggling to maintain stability while trying to cope with a shaky economy, wobbly politics, and emboldened domestic terrorism.

Pakistan is on the verge of being the world's first failed nuclear weapons state.

Pakistan remains beset by security, economic, and political troubles that have caused leading analysts to voice deep concern about the country’s stability.

Stephen Cohen of the Council on Foreign Relations says Pakistan’s woes do not necessarily mean the country is on the verge of collapse, but adds that there are very worrisome trends.

“It’s not necessarily on the road to disintegration,” he said. “But all of the trend lines are negative. I can’t think of many positive ones. And, of course, the floods and the assassinations and the sectarian violence and the bad economy contribute to this.”

“The politicians we are dealing with are weak, corrupt, and, more often than not, ineffective. But they are the best of bad alternatives,” lamented Former CIA officer Bruce Riedel.

The country is recovering from the recent destructive floods, electric power outages are widespread, prices are rising, and inflation is hovering at over 15 per cent – all of which, analysts say, are further fueling anti-government sentiment.

Jesus warned us in Mark 13:7;

When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end.

Pakistan is only one of many countries in the world with weak governments on the verge of losing control of their own people. But what makes Pakistan’s case much more dangerous is that it possesses Nuclear weapons and is a base for many of the world’s most virulent Muslim extremist organizations.

When you combine these two facts, it is not hard to imagine that Pakistan could easily become the source of the world’s first nuclear terrorist attack.

The only gleam of hope in this situation is the tiny but vibrant Bible believing church in Pakistan. There is no way for us to know how many they are, but we must pray for them daily, that they will have strength and courage to spread the Gospel among their neighbors and that they will stay strong in their faith even as they face persecution and hardship.

  1. In the last few decades, Pakistan committed many sins, and now there is no way it can get away without paying the price.

    Same goes for the Americans as well ……… !

    1. Dear neel123

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      It is important that we take this view. It is easy to look at the Globe as a tool for American politicians. The failure of Pakistan, is very mush linked to the failure of America. The Post-American Empire World will be lead by a One World Government. The elite in all nations will agree that this is the solution, and off they go into the abyss.

  2. Dear Aaron, as you spoke of the tiny church in the midst of this country, it got me thinking of Abraham and him asking GOD if he would still destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if there were just a few righteous living there. GOD said he would have mercy if there were. Here in this country, although there sins may be many as neel123 said, there is a remnant and may OUR LORD continue to have mercy on this country and our brothers and sisters who preach the Gospel to these people in need of Him. Amen.

  3. @ Gloria, Jean & ivarfjeld,

    The articles at the following link will describe what I alluded to as American sins :

    I sincerely believe that majority of the Americans are not sinners. But when it comes to paying the price for the sins of some ex US State Department high officials and the White House, no one would be excluded from the Pakistani nukes that would fall in the hands of the Muslim mad dogs, not if but when …..!!
