ABSTRACT
The article comments on global politics. While Libya and Iraq make positive advances, the Pakistani military will retreat. The World Trade Organization (WTO), meanwhile, will keep on talking. Sunni turnout in Iraq's elections should give moderate politicians some leverage over insurgents. That means stability in the Sunni Triangle, and reconstruction. Hong Kong WTO talks will not deliver solid framework for trade. But expect promises concerning modest trade liberalization to do better in 2006. Earthquake rescue efforts revived the Pakistani Army's reputation. But winter is likely to lead to more deaths.
