A suicide car bomb exploded in a market close to the home of a politician in Pakistan's most populous province Tuesday, killing 22 people and wounding 70 others.
The blast in the Punjabi town of Dera Ghazi Khan was the latest in a series of attacks that have killed more than 500 people in Pakistan since October. The bloodshed has been blamed on Taliban militants avenging an army offensive against the Taliban in the northwest.
Pakistan has been pushed by the US into a war against its own people.
Unfortunately, Pakistan has no real way of winning this war, short of ordering the US out of the country, which it really has no real way of doing at this point.
