    From the New York Times: (a good example)

    OVERVIEW | Updated: May 27, 2009

    Pakistan was born as an explicitly Muslim state, and the wrestling between its secular and Islamic natures has never been so pronounced as in recent years. The country's other troubling traditions are the military's role as the arbiter of power - there have been four coups in its 60 years of independence - and its rampant corruption and waves of economic and political unrest.

    After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 the country entered into an alliance with the United States that it later claimed was the result of coercion. In 2002, Pakistan came to the brink of war with India after Islamic members of a Pakistani militant group attacked India's Parliament.

    But the last two years have been tumultuous even by Pakistan's standards. The country's military ruler, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, was forced from power. He was replaced by neither of his longtime rivals, Nawaz Sharif or Benazir Bhutto, who was killed by a bomb at a campaign rally. A tide of strong emotion swept Bhutto's party into power in parliamentary elections in 2008, and her widower, Asif Ali Zardari, became president.

    Mr. Zardari's government has been challenged by Taliban and Al Qaeda insurgencies based in tribal areas along the country's western border with Afghanistan. Under pressure from the United States and increasing international concerns about the durability of the government, the Pakistani Army has launched an offensive to take back areas like the Swat Valley from the Taliban.

    The difficult military campaign, which has produced massive refugee flows out of contested areas, came after unsuccessful attempts by the government to offer limited forms of autonomy, such as rule by Shariah (Islamic Law), to the Taliban.
