Failed State?

I keep coming back to McCain’s comment that Pakistan was a “failed state” when Musharraf hatched his coup d’etat. It’s a vague term. But I don’t think that adds up. It’s always been the key fear that Pakistan, with its nuclear weapons, could become a failed state. It’s got lots of the ingredients. But I don’t think that adds up.
