Musharraf's latest troubles
Here's a link to the Register's editorial on the situation in Pakistan, where the two more-or-less opposition parties (Sharif's and Bhutto's) that got most of the votes in the recent parliamentary election are forming a coalition government and could very well end up impeaching Musharraf. It's actually rather weird that the U.S. is still insisting that Musharraf is the key in Pakistan despite all the evidence of his deep unpopularity. I suspect strongly that it's the Bushlet, who like many ignorant but powerful people still has a faith in his ability to size people up, and also seems to think that international relations is about personal relations. I can't wait for that twit to be gone!
