Trouble in Pakistan ?

Bill Roggio, over at Fourth Rail, thinks that the resurgence of Taliban activity in eastern Afghanistan adds up to trouble in Pakistan, where Al Qaeda and the Taliban have apparently regrouped. Coup rumors are floating around again in Pakistan. Truthfully, I am surprised that the Musharraf regime has lasted this long.
I wonder what India will do if, hypothetically, a radical Islamofascist government, supported by a good part of the Pakistani military and intelligence services, comes into power in Pakistan ? The Kashmir situation, overnight, would become exponentially more dangerous.
