What One Little Crisis Can Do For A Career

I will order action if the media promises it will not show dead bodies ”

Barely two weeks ago, Pakistan’s military ruler, General Pervez Musharraf, was battling for his political survival. The war drums being beaten by the opposition at home were reaching a crescendo.
Major embarrassment –  Jamia Hafsa – a seminary affiliated with one of the city’s oldest mosques, known as the Red Mosque – had been running circles around the Islamabad administration since the beginning of this year.
Demanding strict enforcement of Sharia (Islamic law), Red Mosque clerics had let loose moral squads on the capital to “prevent vices and promote virtue” – a concept first institutionalized by the Taleban in Afghanistan. These moral squads, consisting of armed male and female students, were going around the city threatening music shop owners, and kidnapping women over allegations of operating brothels.

Concern in the West  – The president repeatedly said if the government tried to use force, the clerics would unleash suicide bombers who could kill dozens.

“The same people including the media who are currently demanding that the government take action will then turn around and start accusing the government of killing its own people,” he said at one of his public appearances earlier this year. “I will order action if the media promises it will not show dead bodies,” Gen Musharraf  said on another occasion.

“The turning point clearly was the abduction of the Chinese massage parlour girls,”  says a senior diplomat in Islamabad.

“We know that the Chinese sent a very strong message that they could take losses in Balochistan or the tribal belt but were not prepared to see their citizens abducted and tortured bang in the heart of the capital.”

Musharraf is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t pursue a secular system. The US encourages Secular and his opponents want a strict Islamic state.

Increased attacks in Afghanistan by Pakistan-based Taleban in the first six months of the year had also started to cause concern in Western capitals.

The influential British and American media had started to revisit skeletons that President Musharraf had worked so hard to bury.

Musharraf has used Radical Islamic Militias to fight proxy wars with India & Kashmir.

As the nation inches closer to elections later in the year and a decision from General Musharraf on his dual role as president and army chief, he will be focusing all his energies on getting just one message across: He is still the West’s best bet against radical Islam who can move decisively as and when needed.

America needs Musharraf and seems willing to forgive his sins as long as he supports the War Against Terror. How long will he survive when he has so many trying to eliminate him … how long will our War Against Terror survive if the opposition succeeds?

Why isn’t this front page news? Where do our candidates stand?

    Pakistan? We find hardly a mention of Afghanistan! To report that war risks having to also report the extraordinary civilian deaths caused by our forces and the continuing stanglehold of the Taliban. And all the while we stand ready to elect another president feeding us more pablum.

    Whatever has happened in Pakistan recent Lal Masjid Issue is completely organized by Govt and agencies, for musharraf to prove himself useful for US.

    though he has somehow getting successful in it, but wont stay long.

    Pakistan, Afghanistan are all ignored by the candidates and the press. Bush in his never ending quest for power and world domination in Iraq, fails to realize that he has endangered citizens of other countries and had enpowered the Taliban and the like. With Iran in Bush’s scope Musharraf and Pakistan will become another one of Bush’s collateral damges numbers.

    The candidates have taken no stand on Pakistan or Afghanistan, they also seem to be preoccupied with Iraq and Iran. Until the currently candidates admit that Bush is running proxy wars nothing will be concludes peacefully. Although we may be out of time for peaceful solutions.

    Thank you Shaheen, you express what I have suspected. Musharraf has orchestrated some events to impress Western money. From the safety of where I live this is all horrible ‘theater’. Bush administration has put on an expensive and deadly show to achieve their awful goals. Leaders of some countries have put on deadly shows of their own to receive funds from one side or another. I personally believe that religion has been brought onto the stage to distract from the obvious. Religion has been used as a pawn to stoke passion from both sides and cloud the real motives for all this carnage. I don’t pretend to understand all the blasphemy that has occurred against all the religions involved, but I know what is happening is very wrong. The future of the entire world is at stake!

  5. Why isn’t this front page news?

    What? With news of Paris Hilton (CNN) and car chases on LA freeways (MSNBC) and raging kangaroos (FOX Noise) to cover, do you think the MSM is even remotely interested in educating and informing the American public? And would the American public even care?

    Where do our candidates stand?

    HAHAHAHAHA! Speaker Botox and Harry “limp biscuit” Reid are only focused on one thing: winning the presidency in 2008 and nothing is going to derail them from the prize.

    We’re so screwed. The final draft of the NAU is going to Congress in the fall and where is the media and the candidates on this? MIA, I tell ya.’

    Mirth – What casualties? To MSM casualties are what King George says they are … Official Pentagon figures are being revised every day. I fear we will never know the full extent of ALL that casualties because the military has become expert at covering up everything. This is another case of “need to know”. Of course, the public who pays their wages has NO need to know!

    mullah cimoc say this a perfectly good example of the cia’s domination of pakistan.

    please scan: inside the company, a cia diary by phillip agee for an introductory course in subversion of nations, except the satanic forces are even more skilled now.

    the usa is self destructing both psychologically and physically as the women of the ameriki becomes whores taking the LBT (low back tattoo) and making the sex with every man, while killing their children through mass abortions.

    ameriki’s son is now the gay homosexual, to the pride of his divorced and sexually diseased parents.

    fear not my friends as the wicked always get their reward. Musharaff will die the death of Hezekiah, his organs rotting from the inside out. It will not be pleasant. His family will be exterminated to the fourth degree of blood relations. this to include even the second cousin.

    THANK YOU for posting this.

    Busharraf IS NOT going to survive. It isn’t going to happen. His time at the top may be measurable in days; it certainly won’t be more than a couple of months. And when he gets kicked down, those people who were Saudi-educated and US armed and trained (some of you know them as “The Taliban”) are going to make a grab for Pakistan’s nukes. They stand as good a chance as anyone else of succeeding in their quest.
