    Is it safe to go to Pakistan?

    I think that depends where in Pakistan you are going and where in the world you are from.

    There is a high threat from terrorism, kidnap and sectarian violence throughout Pakistan.
    UK Foreign Office
    Sounds a pretty straightforward answer

    Quetta, Peshawar, Karachi and anywhere in Waziristan are a no no for sure.

    But is anywhere there really safe? Remember the 9 tourists who were recently butchered while away from the so called "hotspots" (I think they were waiting to climb one of the famous mountains).

    I wouldn't go now that's for sure. If you are Western looking (as I am assuming James Green is) then you could be a "legitimate" target for some fundamentalist.
