President Musharraf--Continuing To Show Us Our Mistakes

And those mistakes go back to the accusation that he has levied in an interview today, and one that will be shown on 60 Minutes. From Charles @ LGF and Yahoo News:

President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan said that after the September 11 attacks the United States threatened to bomb his country if it did not cooperate with America’s war campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Musharraf, in an interview with CBS news magazine show “60 Minutes” that will air Sunday, said the threat came from Assistant Secretary of State Richard Armitage and was given to Musharraf’s intelligence director.

“The intelligence director told me that (Armitage) said, ‘Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age,”’ Musharraf said.

“I think it was a very rude remark.” ...

... But the official said: "After 9/11, Pakistan made a strategic decision to join the war on terror and has since been a steadfast partner in that effort. Pakistan's commitment to this important endeavor has not wavered and our partnership has widened as a result."

I question the use of the word "steadfast" in this story. How steadfast is Pakistan when their government cuts deals with terrorists and tribal leaders to allow sanctuary of Taliban and al-Qaeda forces in Pakistan? How steadfast are they when they refuse to condemn Jamaat-e-Islam for their boasts of sharing nuclear technology with Muslim nations not yet in possession of that information? How steadfast are they when they condemn those that speak ill of radical Islam?

What I find "rude" is the recent, two-faced attitude coming out of Pakistan. These people were supposed to be allies in our war. They were supposed to be helping us track down and contain al-Qaeda and the Taliban--ultimately destroying them while they were on the run. What we see coming from Pakistan is a man who is comfortable in his position as the head of Pakistan, and is increasingly uncomfortable with the death sentence sitting over his head. President Musharraf has opted to settle for capitulation and negotiation with the Islamofascists in his own country. He will soon see the folly of such decisions.

Like bribes, blackmail has a tendency to continue increasing its costs. How much longer will Musharraf last before the Islamofascists pull off a coup like they did in Thailand? Musharraf may not have much longer to stick around in office before he is ousted, and we lose another ally in our war, permanently.

At this stage in the game, maybe we should have bombed Pakistan. It would have been preferable, in my humble opinion, as opposed to allowing an ally seel his nation down the river. That is precisely what President Musharraf is doing, and it is sickening. As for his offense at Dick Armitage's statement--that is was rude--what did he think this was to America?. I sincerely remember the nation waking up to that rude awakening on that bright, clear Tuesday morning. I guess we know where he really stood when Armitage told him to straighten up. He could have cared less about the people who died, just as long as it was not his neck stretched on the chopping block by us or our enemies.

In Musharraf I see a man who has walked a tightrope for some time now. And if he is not careful, he will be working that high-wire without the American net below him. When the nation reaches that point, we will see just how long he will last before the Islamofascists attain their goals. And when that does occur, all bets are off. Pakistan will take a turn back to the Stone Age because there is no way in Hell we will allow the radicals to share nuclear technology with any Muslim nation that has Islamofascists in control of the government.
