Pervez Musharraf and the Deathly Hallows

Pakistan has it all - nuclear weaponry, Al Qaeda, Taliban, Islamic rage boy and a blood enemy of the Great Satan who cannot seem tO Be Located. The Land of the Pure also has General President Musharraf. The last of the whiskey drinking, swagger stick carrying, anglophile Generals.
Last indeed.
Couped into power in 1999, America's fave unelected General President hasn't really lived up to his resume' - especially since the day history started. The General President's synopsis of the Deathly Hallows is very open:
"I had to battle against these four accusations single handedly to cool
international temperatures against Pakistan.
All the terrorist activity in Afghanistan had its base in Pakistan
All the freedom struggle in Indian Held Kashmir was Cross Border Terrorism from
All nuclear proliferation in the world had its source in Pakistan
Pakistan is an intolerant militant extremist society. I have succeeded considerably but not sufficiently to project the reality of Pakistan as a progressive, moderate
Islamic State."

And that's the problem. After nearly 10 billion bucks in cash from the Great Satan and 6 years of nothing but love - Pakistan is coming apart. Martial Law, media blackout, independent judiciary under house arrests. A true Military government with a military crackdown on everyone except, well, the new improved Super Villian Caliphate. What the heck is going on? Imported Al Qaeda Talibanish pocket caliphates developing abilities and tactics, targetable leaders and a surging offensive rolling up Pakistans Federal Tribal areas.

While comparisons to the Shah of Iran back in the Pre Islamic Republic days exist, perhaps the Philippines are a better example. Long ago, an essential sovereign ally of the Great Satan was ruled by a simularly ineffective leader. Maintaining power required traditional remedy's: faux elections, unfree media and the secret police.
In the Philippines - the Great Satan was at her best. Refusing to confer legitimacy (thanks in large part to a Straussian purest by the name of Paul Wolfowitz), America forsook General Marcos, his 1st Lady's 20K shoe collection and allowed the Philippines a choice.
As Great Britain once defined
the universal values of the human spirit, and anywhere--anywhere, anytime
ordinary people are given the chance to choose, the choice is the same:
freedom, not tyranny; democracy, not dictatorship; the rule of law, not the
rule of the secret police.

The Philippines made the same choice - she became the open, free wheeling allied society that she is today.

"The Deathly Hallows" featuring the General President as indespensible to prevent a militant mohammedist revolution is over.

The Great Satan has overtly and covertly carried the Global War on Terror into Pakistan's chaotic border regions simply because Musharraf's addiction to the power play of the deathly hallows has demanded American intervention. The president general would do well to heed the Great Satan's patronly advice.

"My message was that we believe strongly in elections and that you ought to
have elections soon. You can't be the president and the head of the military at the same time. My message was very plain, very easy to understand, and that is, the United States wants you to have the elections as scheduled and take your uniform off."

Interesting. I posted on this earlier, with a little less spark, however.

Take care!

Did you see the latest War Stories with Ollie North?

It's amazing how well things are going in the fight against Islamic terror groups in the Philippines.

Another great post, and I love the image.

I cruised over here from Political Grind - what a breath of fresh air. Thoughtful. Cutting. Great writing.

The balancing act we've been playing with Musharraf has been fascinating to watch, but the continuing drama will be expensive. I picked up John Bolton's newest book today - "Surrender is not an option." I've heard him go into detail about the chess match that is foreign policy, and so with a warm cup of chai tea and the house finally quiet, I settle down to spend the rest of the night with Ambassador Bolton...

I see that over at Political Grind they have you listed as a interesting!
