Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Eric Margolis On Pakistan, Musharraf, Benazir Bhutto And More ...

Eric Margolis On Pakistan, Musharraf, Benazir Bhutto And More ...

Boy, have we been blinking busy lately.

So tonight we thought we'd take some 'feet up,' time off.

But before we bugger off to bed for a rare early night, we'd like you meet
Mr Eric Margolis - a genuine journalist.

If you've recently been puzzled and/or perplexed regarding the (almost revolutionary like), public protests in Pakistan, then Eric Margolis is a man you need to read.

Here's a taste of what he wants us all to know.

I’ve been in regular contact with former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

She calls the situation `grim.’
Obviously, the former female PM is referring to her country's current leader, military dictator General Pervez Musharraf, and his most recent show of megalomaniacal madness.

Here's another tasty teaser to tempt you.

Anyone who still wonders why so many people in the Muslim World hate the west needs look no further than Pakistan, where, in the name of `democracy’ and `counter-terrorism’ Washington and London are stirring a witches brew of dictatorship, intrigue and violence.
Read all of Margolis' extremely enlightening article.

Looks like this little puppet was trying to pull his own strings and they all got tangled up. Naughty, naughty. Never mind, his masters will soon sort things out ~ one way or the other.

Tell you what ... I would NOT want to be this guy right now. I think he'll be getting sorted out alright ... for good ... period. And pretty soon.

Agreed.

It's just a matter of when, not if.

I agree with whoever. But what if his replacement is the people's genuine choice? What if he/she's not just another American puppet?

Thanks to the US (and probably to a lesser extent) the UK too, everyone's going to have to worry about God knows who in charge of nuclear power.

Of course, as usual no one seems to ever have a plan B for when things don't always turn out the way they're supposed to, or don't last as long as expected.

While I don't always agree with Margolis (he's a dyed in the wool Conservative, though not a Neocon), you have to hand it to him as far as getting the full info is concerned. He's certainly got lots of A1 'connections' throughout the world.
