Pakistan Y2K chaos loomsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
ISLAMABAD -- In Pakistan, it is not so much a question of
whether anything will go wrong at the stroke of midnight on

country's most populated city, is still trying
to prepare one of its main generators.

nuclear power and still has a troubled relationship
with its larger, and also nuclear-armed neighbour
India. "The military are always secret."
