very interesting read...
It was a good read. I think the most telling and the most chilling aspect was:
Terror will only continue to thrive as long as it's sanctioned by a desperately, power hungry president. Hey, that applies to the US, too! Goody, another decade of death and destruction in order to pacify two men's egos...
Musharraf doesn't sanction terror. He's the target of terrorists. There have been two Al-Qaeda related assassination attempts against him. One was a remote-controlled bombing and the other was a suicide bombing. In both cases there were deaths and injuries.
Just because someone is of Pakistani heritage and they visited that country doesn't mean there's a governmental connection or sanction. The 9/11 bombers were in Germany. Does that imply a link to the German government? Of course it doesn't.
Musharraf was interviewed on Nightline a couple of nights ago. One of the things he said made a lot of sense: there are two groups in the UK who have formally called for Musharraf to be assassinated. The groups are Hizb-ut-Tahrir and Al-Muhajiroun. Nothing happened to the leaders or members of those groups as a consequence. Does that imply a British tolerance for advocating assassination? It probably doesn't, but it's still not a good thing.
