Zardari is politically weak, but US has no choice

As per the official transcript of President Barack Obama’s prime-time press conference sent out by the “Office of the Press Secretary” at the White House, Mr. Obama told reporters on the evening of April 29: “I am gravely concerned about the situation in Pakistan not because I think that they’re immediately going to be overrun and the Taliban would take over in Pakistan; more concerned that the civilian government there right now is very fragile and doesn’t seem to have the capacity to deliver basic services — schools, health care, rule of law, a judicial system that works for the majority of people. And so as a consequence it is very difficult for them to gain the support and loyalty of their people.”
