From Wikipedia:

"The 2022–2023 Pakistan political unrest or 2022–2023 Pakistani political crises is an ongoing political crises established after the ousting of former Prime Minister Imran Khan through a no confidence motion in April 2022.[1] In 2022, the Pakistani political crises began when the opposition joined hands and submitted a no-confidence motion against Imran Khan's government in the National Assembly. Prime Minister Imran Khan urged Pakistani establishment not to stay neutral[14] and play its role to save his government and not let historical rival politicians with alleged corruption charges take over[15] but the establishment refused.[16]

After his ouster, Imran Khan called for early general elections, for which calls escalated after the Khan-led PTI dissolved two of its provincial assemblies[17][18] (Punjab and KP) triggering elections in 60% of country due in 30 April 2023[19] and 28 May 2023[20] respectively. Khan's calls received a broadly positive response from the general public, with a Gallup survey declaring Imran Khan as the most popular current political leader in Pakistan with 61% of Pakistanis having a positive opinion about him, followed by 36% for the PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari respectively.[21]

Imran Khan was arrested by the police from Islamabad High Court on May 9, 2023. Imran's arrest led to a nation wide protest by his supporters. PTI supporters had reportedly indulged into violence to stage their protest against this arrest. Social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook and others were blocked in the country"

The ouster of President Khan is just the latest in a long list of coups, ousters and removals that have plagued the country for decades. One would think that a country with the resources of Pakistan would be developing in a much less chaotic manner, but years of strongman politics, army influence and an all pervading intelligence force (coupled with the corruption that hit the country as a conduit for the US/Afghan war) has done nothing but weaken the stability and unity of this diverse NUCLEAR POWER.

"Pakistan is believed to have a stockpile of approximately 160 warheads, making it the 6th largest nuclear arsenal. Pakistan is actively developing nuclear weapons, and experts project that it may have the 5th largest arsenal by 2025 with 220-250 warheads."

This can all lead to an incredible worst case scenario where one or more Islamic jihadist states end up with functional nuclear weapons. Let alone the splintering of the country along ethnic lines. Civil war? Nuclear war? who can tell, but it is a situation that the western media is ignoring as hard as possible.

Nothing that the Russians or Chinese are getting up to currently has anywhere near the importance as the failure of Pakistan.
