Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Still more reaction, this time from the FP Passport blog:

Needless to say, this shakes up the Pakistani political scene before the elections, which were supposed to be held January 8. Angry riots and a reimposition of martial law are probably a foregone conclusion. And for the United States, it probably means that U.S. policymakers now see President Pervez Musharraf as their only option.

Reports said security was deteriorating in Karachi, where thousands poured on to the streets to protest. At least three banks, a government office and a post office were set on fire, a witness said.

Tires were set on fire on many roads, and shooting and stone-throwing was reported in many places. Most shops and markets in the city shut down.

At least 20 vehicles were torched in the central Sindh town of Hyderabad.

I've never understood why people do that. In what way are local shopkeepers, banks and people with cars parked on the street responsible for X?

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
