Musharraf Resigns

Dressed in a dark suit and looking sullen, the former army chief announced his resignation in hastily arranged, live televised address. "I hope the nation and the people will forgive my mistakes," he said, his voice thick with emotion. "Every decision I made was only with noble intentions."


In Pakistan, Musharraf Bows Out - TIME

Well, we propped him up for several years in order to have a flyover zone for A'stan and because we really REALLY didn't want to see if he was crazy enough to use his nukes if we decided that he too was part of that annoying axis of evil [and the only one with real juice AND OBL's hidey hole].

Should be interesting to see how Cowboy diplomacy works with any new power shifts that lean more fundamental. The Taliban in Pakistan are stronger than those in Afghanistan.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

he is/was a son of a B (not Benadir Bhutto I don't think) but he was OURS son of a B.

Let's see what happens next.

Somehow I am not too happy about this.

I've heard he is going to New Mexico.
