Your Friendly Neighbourhood Dictator?

Musharraf’s Pakistan is going from bad to worse. This is a situation that never really had good options – I’d like to see a democratic Pakistan but there I’m not sure that the West has a credible way to pressure Musharraf. This recent chaos though seems to have everything to do with Musharraf’s general disdain for an independent judiciary. Given that we’ve allowed Musharraf a fairly free reign over the past few years, I suppose it’s no surprise that he feels that he can switch on martial law like it was a lightbulb.

If anyone has a better idea, I’d love to read it.
