The term whether or not Pak­istan is a failed state is bandied about reg­u­larly. I would ar­gue that Pak­istan is a failed state but it is not a failed state in the way peo­ple say it is. In fact there was a very in­ter­est­ing re­port, I be­lieve in the fi­nan­cial times that said that Pak­istan is a state that re­fuses to fail! Ev­ery­thing says it will col­lapse but it doesn’t col­lapse, right? It still func­tions.
