Joschka Fischer, frm. Foreign Minister (in German) | December 3, 2008
In light of the attacks on Mumbai, President-elect Obama’s presidency will become even more complex. ++ Indicators seem to show that the attacks originated in Pakistan and point to Lashkar-e-Toiba, a terrorist group based there. ++ A massive retaliation by India can be expected. ++ Pakistan is becoming the most alarming risk factor on the global stage. ++ Should the situation in Pakistan continue to escalate, there will be an urgent need for closely coordinated international action, as the US will not be able to go it alone.
