Attn democracies: If you treat your military like the maid, BE SURE to provide great pensions
Headline from yesterday's Washington Post: Pakistan’s military has its fingerprints all over the elections. Really? We would never have guessed.
I can't even remember how many years ago I mentioned on this blog that Pakistan was going the way of Egypt, Iran, and several other countries in that the military had gotten tired of peeling grapes for the country's ruling families while having to scramble to look after itself in retirement. In country after country, one day the military says, 'Peel it yourself.'
Got that, Washington Post?
