What can we expect from Pakistan

American politicians have been getting publicity complaining about the lack of success of in improving effectiveness, controlling corruption and assuring the rule of law. Asif Zadari was elected president of Pakistan in 2008, replacing the military Pervez Musharraf. The data above shows that social and political development is a long process. Pakistan has had an especially difficult time, created in a rush out of British India, divided from Bangladesh in a brutal civil war, and seeking to bring together disparate ethnic groups, many of whom were immigrant refugees from the partition of India. The American legislators should know better than to expect too much from this emergent nation!
