Pakistan: Here comes "state of emergency II" Musharraf prepares for crackdown...again



It's all rolling downhill...again. As Pakistan attempts to cope with the death of her democratic hero, Benazir Bhutto, President Musharraf has sought another opportunity to subvert democracy. Here comes the TROOPS, again.

Here are a few excerpts from the BBC,
Mr Musharraf said looters "must be dealt with firmly and all measures be taken to ensure [the] safety and security of the people".
.....
Troops have been deployed onto the streets to try to quell the violence that has broken out since Ms Bhutto's death.
.....
Interior ministry spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema said rioting across the country had destroyed 176 banks, 72 train cars and 18 railway stations, while at least 100 prisoners had been sprung from jails.
How can Mush, Bush, Brown, and Rudd believe that elections should still be held on Jan. 8th? Pakistan is in turmoil! Elections would be a COMPLETE FARCE on Democracy.
Nine election offices in Ms Bhutto's home province of Sindh were also reportedly burned to the ground.
.....
A spokeswoman for her Pakistan People's Party accused the government of trying to minimise its responsibility for Ms Bhutto's safety, and said the official account was "dangerous nonsense".
and here comes the best, most pathetic part...
Brig Cheema also said Pakistan did not need the help of the international community in investigating the assassination.

And he again accused a Pakistani militant, Baitullah Mehsud, of ordering the killing.

The tribal leader from South Waziristan, who has close links to al-Qaeda, has denied the accusations through a spokesman.

But Brig Cheema said: "We have the evidence that he is involved. Why should he accept that he has done it? It does not suit him. I don't think anybody has the capability to carry out such suicide attacks except for those people."
They are ALL complicit. The "government" has failed the people of Pakistan. Her political future is in DOUBT. Democracy will not survive without the WILL of the people.

Same Players. Different Scandal.

Same as in America. Democracy will not surive unless the Will of the People wakes up.
