Pakistani TVs say Musharraf to declare emergency
Washington Post, United States - 4 hours ago
By Zeeshan Haider ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Private Pakistani television channels reported on Wednesday that President Pervez Musharraf was preparing to declare …
All the prophets that have been watching this game unfold knew exactly what Musharraf was planning. Now that the US Presidential elections are raising the volume on rhetoric about terror and what to do about it, Musharraf’s grip on power is slipping. His precarious balancing act is starting to tilt, so, his solution is to declare the emergency in a last effort to stay in power. One of the presidential debaters made it clear that Musharraf is the only one keeping Pakistani nukes out of terrorist hands. Good or bad, there is no one on our side waiting in the wings who can guarantee anyone’s safety from Pakistan’s nuclear armaments
You know if this works for Musharraf, Bush will try it next …

Truce Over, Pakistan Militants Kill 70
Guardian Unlimited, UK – From AP By RIAZ KHAN AP Writer PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) – Militants in northwest Pakistan disavowed a peace pact with the government and launched two days of suicide attacks and bombings that killed at least 70 people, dramatically escalating the violence in the al-Qaida infiltrated region.
There is concern in Pakistan that the gathering sense of crisis could prompt Musharraf to cancel elections later this year and declare a state of emergency – despite his repeated denials.
However, Musharraf can also use the turbulence to convince Washington, his key backer, that he remains a vital bulwark against extremists in the Islamic world’s only declared nuclear state.
Deadly Violence Surges in the Tribal Regions of Pakistan
New York Times, United States – Abdullah Noor/AP – In the deadliest suicide bombing in Pakistan since January, 24 paramilitary soldiers were killed and 26 other people were wounded Saturday near Miram Shah, the headquarters of the restive North Waziristan’s tribal region.
Rocket attacks on government and security installations surged Saturday in different parts of the North-West Frontier Province. An attempt to detonate a car bomb outside a bank here failed.
The deadly surge in violence occurred barely a day after the Interior Ministry in Islamabad announced the end of Operation Silence after a bloody raid to get at militants holed up in the Red Mosque, known here as the Lal Masjid, and the adjoining seminary.

OK sports fans, here we go!
Pakistan houses the factions that Bush’s fantasy keeps using to justify “stay the course”.
Pakistan and the United States are SO into each other’s pockets … because Pakistan has the Nukes and we pay him well to keep them safe … yet, Musharraf is talking about pardoning the ‘evil KAHN’ who exported the stuff to the highest bidder (If only I had invested …).
A Holy War will inevitably draw the factions inside Iraq and Iran into greater confrontation than they are presently in … plus provide the distraction needed for Turkey to invade Kurdistan.
The “paramilitary” in Pakistan are obviously our employees and they are dying faster than normal … so, expect they will start going AWOL to protect their families.
The fact that Musharraf is toying with declaring a “State of Crisis” to postpone elections is a very good mirror to what King George plans to do when his controllers arrange a ‘terror attack’ so he can also postpone elections to pursue his ARMAGEDDON ENVY!

Thank You Munaeem:
Richard Boucher’s latest visit to Pakistan has generated widespread speculations that US is not happy with the general. Analysts say that US has asked Musharraf to share power with the civilian government, which will be elected in the upcoming elections.
Musharraf who earned the favour of his masters by launching a crack-down on Al-qaeda in the urban areas of Pakistan and Waziristan, has lost his credibility in the eyes of his masters.
The western media has started to criticize him. They say he is losing domestic support and should be replaced. But the problem is that politicians will not be able to do things for Americans unless they get the support of powerful military. So they are asking Musharraf to share power, because they cannot afford a military coup in Pakistan.
Current factors effecting US relations with Pakistan & Musharraf
According to reports, negotiations for the Iran-India-Pakistan gas pipeline are in the final stages.
This project will cost US$ 7 Billion. The project is crucial to India and Pakistan because of their energy requirements.
But the Bush Administration is opposed to this IPI project. They do not want foreign companies to invest in Iran’s energy sector. Their strategy is to weaken the Iranian regime. So they are threatening to take punitive actions against companies who will invest in this project.
Musharraf must decide whether to shed Military role
US backing for Musharraf
John Negroponte, the US deputy secretary of state, has backed General Pervez Musharraf, saying it was up to the Pakistan president to decide when to quit as army chief.
Negroponte told reporters at the US embassy in Islamabad: “The message I brought was one of a strong friendship and trust for and with the government and people of Pakistan.”
Those opposing Musharraf have seized on the unrest to press the president to give up his dual role as president and head of the military by the end of the year, when he is constitutionally obliged to.
Ongoing controversy abounds about Musharraf in his own country.
Is it right that the future of world is held in the fist of lame ducks?
Iran, India and Pakistan are making progress in talks on a planned $7 billion gas pipeline and the United States will not derail the project, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday.
The plan has also been hampered by differences over pricing the gas and political tensions between India and Pakistan.
The Iranian year ends in March. Iranian officials have previously said they hoped to sign a final deal in Islamabad on June 30
India, Pakistan and Iran are expected to sign a deal by the end of July to build a $7bn gas pipeline.
The proposed pipeline would initially bring 2.2bn cu ft of Iranian gas to Pakistan and India in equal shares. A pricing formula has reportedly been agreed; transportation tariffs and transit fees are not finalised, according to India’s oil secretary
Our LAME Bush is threatening our loyal allies’ much needed energy asset (IPI Pipeline) just because Iran is one of the players, Pakistan and India are the other two players. The US threatens to kill their golden goose because of ONE bad egg ….
