Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Pakistan's Megalomaniac, Military Dictator Musharraf Declares War On Democracy ...

Pakistan's Megalomaniac, Military Dictator Musharraf Declares War On Democracy ...

We always wondered how long it would be before this bombastic little bastard brute reverted to terrible type.

Now we're wondering how the the hell the US, UK and others who have so consistently and so shamelessly sided with this sob, are going to clean up his latest cartload of (damned dangerous), crap.

The declaration of emergency rule in Pakistan by President Pervez Musharraf is an embarrassment for the US and British governments, which had been urging him not to take this step.

Both have condemned it. The question now is whether they will have to live with it.

Their hopes of forging an alliance of convenience between General Musharraf and the former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto - leading to elections in January - have come to a halt and look like coming to an end.

They are faced with the dilemma of how far to work with the general, while at the same time condemning what he has done.
More on the duplicitous West's latest (self inflicted), deadly dilemma.

And when we say deadly, we do mean deadly.

Dastardly deadly.

Finally, for those with the time and/or inclination, here's the actual text of this twisted twerp's
'Proclamation of Emergency' declaration.

*Oops! We almost entirely omitted mentioning anything about
Musharraf's Pakistan's nukes.

In response to Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf's declaration of martial law and illegal dismissal of a Pakistani Supreme Court Justice, I am encouraging all bloggers out there who want true democratic rule for Pakistan's 165 million people to unite in opposition.

From now on, I am asking bloggers to consistantly refer to Musharraf as "Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf" consistantly linking back to a post I made explaining this idea in greater detail.

The post allows threaded comments, so that those opposed to Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf can start discussing ways that we can organize and unite in opposition to his dictatorial actions.

My hope is that a consistant message of opposition to martial law and support for democracy in Pakistan can help to influence the media away from legitimizing the Musharraf regime by referring to him as a President. By definition, he cannot be a President if he refuses the right for his government's Supreme Court to decide whether his running for office is legal or not.

Please drop by the post, leave a comment as to what ideas you have on how we can best unite in opposition to martial law, and please do consider using the phrase "Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf", linking back to the post.

This is Musharraf's 'Plan B' of course. 'Plan A' was much more straightforward and more easily explained had it succeeded - it was the bomb plan\plot - which while it claimed a lot of lives did NOT eliminate his (only serious) opposition target.

**Planned elections in Pakistan could be delayed by up to a year after President Pervez Musharraf's imposition of emergency rule, the country's PM says.**

Pakistan's nukes - in the hands of who next?

Political and military instabilty do NOT mix well.

I think this this situation is far more serious than most folk seem to have realised yet.

If that Ordinance isn't proof in itself of a Dictorship, then what is?

And as for you, Richard, it's a good job you're sat typing a hell of a long way from Pakistan. Otherwise, your card would already be marked.

Witness this:

[shall] not broadcast anything which defames or brings into ridicule the Head of State....

Oh dear. How's that for a Freudian slip? Obviously, Dictorship should read Dictatorship.

Uh, oh. Here we go. The knives are out and the heel's coming down hard. Now it's really started.

Pakistani police detain 500 activists

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Police and soldiers emboldened by state of emergency powers swept up hundreds of activists and opposition members on Sunday, dragged away protesters shouting "Shame on you!", and turned government buildings into barbed-wire compounds.

Much more here @ link.

And already the MSM "spin" has started. All he's really doing is fighting terrorists, extremists and all those other evildoers.

Oh yeah, of course he is. (/snark)

'course we here across the pond are 'fraid the General General is giving our prez some bad ideas. at this point, I'm no longer sure our citizens could mount as much of a protest as the Pakistanis are putting up. Hillary is no Benazir. I tried to imagine a phone call from Bush to Mushie today at my place.

You gotta read this item, courtesy of SadlyNo. Right wing US media says Heeeey, house arrest is no big deal and you know why? Because they're dying to follow Pakistan's lead in the US with liberals.

Neocons love fascism. It frees them.
