Army may march from Karachi to Islamabad

The bloodbath in Karachi continues as scores are killed in sectarian and ethnic violence that has plagued the cities for months now. The two dominant political forces, MQM and PP, have failed to deliver a sense of normalcy in the City. Voices are getting stronger for the military to step in Karachi. 

This will indeed be bad for the democratic forces in the country. Sindh's political elite should act fast to return Karachi to safety and harmony. If the situation were not to improve, the military may step in. It would be hard to restrict military to Karachi. The soldiers may get marching orders to Islamabad after Karachi.
