“A high court in Islamabad has granted former Prime Minister Imran Khan a two-week reprieve from arrest in a graft case and granted him bail on the charges… The popular 70-year-old opposition leader appeared before the same court from which he was dragged and arrested on Tuesday. The arrest triggered nationwide protests in which his supporters attacked military installations, burned vehicles, and ambulances and looted general stores in various parts of the country. The government responded with a crackdown, arresting nearly 3,000 people.”

Analyst Comment: Pakistan is in serious trouble. They are suffering from major food shortages after flooding, power issues from mismanagement, and the government’s solution is to crack down on political opposition. This is the setup for a popular revolution or even a coup.
