    Civil war might come to Pakistan

    by richterscala Updated Apr 4, 2011

    There might be suddenly a outbreak of civil war in the whole area of Pakistan after the shootings around the Red Mosque .
    Strict no to Travel unless protected BY GOD ( ALLAH)
    and very experienced Traveller. Since the army and the militia might fight their own people
    ANY FOREIGNER might be suspicious and it justifies even for criminals to rob them.

    Even Foreigner is requested now to leave the country. Since you cannot leave to Afghanistan, what is worse, and to India sometimes closed and to Iran as well, you can only leave to china
    on land, to get a plane might be overcrowded, to get a ship you have to go to Karatschi, where is already civil war.
    In case US attacks Iran it might become even more terrible, even the Guests, specially lonely one are usually treated with respect.

    The german statement is almost identical with the following warning of US.

    Country: Pakistan
    Title: Travel Warning
    Source: U.S. Department of State
    Bureau of Consular Affairs
    Washington, D.C. 20520
    Issued: March 25, 2005
    This Travel Warning is being reissued to remind U.S. citizens of ongoing security concerns in Pakistan.  This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning dated September 24, 2004. 
    Due to on-going concerns about the possibility of terrorist activity directed against American citizens and interests, the Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens to defer non-essential travel to Pakistan.  The U.S. Embassy in Islamabad and the Consulates in Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar continue to operate at reduced staffing levels.  Family members of official Americans assigned to the Embassy in Islamabad and to the three consulates in Pakistan were ordered to leave the country in March 2002 and have not been allowed to return.  
    Al-Qaida and Taliban elements continue to operate inside Pakistan, particularly along the porous Afghan border region.  Their presence, coupled with that of indigenous sectarian and militant groups in Pakistan, continues to pose potential danger to American citizens.
