It is currently going through a severe economic crisis (it needs something like USD 14 billion even after recently getting a USD 7.6 billion loan from the IMF even as it's "all-weather friend", China, offered no help during Asif Ali Zardari's recent visit). It is getting hammered for the deal with the Tehreek-e-Taliban in a portion of Swat and letting Dr. AQ Khan off scot-free. There's tremendous pressure from India (and to a disappointingly lesser extent, from other countries whose citizens were also murdered) over ensuring that the government took action on those responsible for the terror attacks in Mumbai last year.
