A couple of months back Pakistan had willingly handed over/surrendered the picturesque Swat Valley to the "good" Taliban. Fareed Zakaria supported the move of the government as an effort to divide the camps of Islamists between "those who are violent and those who are merely extreme".
A glimpse of what Pakistan is in for after the Taliban take over the whole country can be seen in this shocking video. A young girl of 17 is mercilessly flogged by the Talban for moving out without her husband. One of the men holding her down is her own brother.
