I completely agree – Pakistan struggles with their bad media reputation. Personally, I don't buy all the media hype anyway and I know a few Pakistani, including some workmates (one from Kashmir, who recently went to visit his relatives there) and they're all very lovely & amicable people. Hospitality and a visitor's safety & wellbeing is very important to them.
BUT (and this is my only concern):
What if the conflict in Pakistan does NOT stay an internal one? After all, there is a possibility of extremists gaining more control – and the US might not like this at all, because Pakistan has nuclear missiles.
(OK - from what I know their nuclear heads, rockets and detonators apparently are all kept in separate locations. But as we all know, Bush's last war was justified with nothing but lies about WMDs anyway, hence I think they won't give a shit and start lying again, if Pakistan's elections point in the wrong direction).
Personally I think & hope that things won't escalate in Pakistan – though it is possible.
