Quote:Pakistan Issues Arrest Warrant for Musharraf

Pakistani officials say an anti-terrorism court has issued an arrest warrant for former President Pervez Musharraf in connection with the assassination of ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Authorities say Judge Rana Nisar Ahmad issued the warrant Saturday, ordering Mr. Musharraf to appear in court on February 19.

Mr. Musharraf has been in exile in London for more than two years.

Ms. Bhutto was assassinated in a gun and suicide bomb attack on December 27, 2007, while campaigning in the city of Rawalpindi. Ms. Bhutto was running as leader of the opposition Pakistan People's Party in national elections.

Her widower, Ali Zardari, led the Pakistan People's Party to victory, and is now president.


According to the CIA Baitullah Mehsud, and al-Qaeda organised Benazir Bhutto's killing, so is Musharraf being set up?
My guess is that this is the current government's way of keeping him from returning, and starting another opposition party. If there is a warrant against him, he will be promptly arrested.

I suspect more politics, than justice, involved here.

And Ali Zardari is not known for his virtue. Isn't his nickname "Mr. Ten Percent"?
i don't think so. i believe 9/11 was set up by americans, the bombing of the coptic christmas party by mubarak, and the assassination of bhutto by musharraf. because that's exactly what american thugs, and their paid goons all over the world do to create trouble.
I don't believe that Bush is behind 911, but I can believe Mushy is behind Butho's assassination.
His secret services had enough muslim suicide bombers available.

Musharaff was well-known for his friendship with the taliban. Benazir was a woman an a direct challenge to his rule.
The Islamists and Musharaff had both their own good reason to shot her down.
It's neat to see how other countries handle their business. It would be nice to see our leaders have those kinds of balls. We just seem content to prostrate ourselves before the world stage and take up the poop chute whenever some tin horn dictator has a grudge.
Pervez Musharaff was in a similar position as Hosni Mubarak. Both leaders attempted to modernize their countries through free-trade and the suppression of terrorist activities with American support. Their governments both collapsed under mass civilian opposition, which may be interpreted as a rejection of Western policies.
Just like Iran in 1979. What a shock,a non Christian,non secular nation desires rule a tad different than American bureacrats want them to have.

With the difference that Mushy never tried to stop terrorism.
He had to play rope walking when the US poured billions in economic aid, doing as if he was hunting the taliban, without hurting the dignity of the latters.

The pakistani certainly hate the US with a passion, but the later governement was more pro-West and anti-taliban.
My hope is that in Tunisia and Egypt it will be the same. Kiss-my-*ss allies replaced by almost true ones.
Here we have squandered billions, upon billions, of dollars to prop up these tyrants, and just look what we have to show for it. Ron Paul has been right all along. We need to stop sticking our noses into other's business. If they want to kill each other, and enslave others, let them, as long as they don't bother us.

I didn't once think this way, but I now see the light, and will Never change again. We need to follow Jefferson's wisdom, and not entangle ourselves in alliances that are contrary to promoting liberty. And we damned sure have no business getting in bed with bad guys, no matter how much they are willing to 'carry our water' for us. It always comes back to haunt us in the end.
The other mistake that Bush did, was to think that giving money was enough to get these poeple doing what we expect them to do.
With Musharaff the US has been cheated big time, and effectively lost at least 10 billion, only in Paki aid.

Beside the presence of the US in this region was jusitfied by the hunt for al-Qaida and the Taliban. You couldn't have 911 and the Taliban ruling half of Pakistan at the same time.
Do any of you think that the Pakistani want the US out of Afghanistan?

Musharaff's arrest is clearly political. Things must be very shaky in Pakistan now with the current weak president, mr 10%.

Am I missing something here? I thought there was a 'warrant' out for him only. Has he also been arrested?

Please define more precisely what you mean by the Pakistani.
Interresting comment from Mushy:
former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf Wrote:Pakistan should consider establishing ties with Israel
...especialy from a man who has been supporting the taliban radicals even secretely after 9/11.

I wonder how many seconds his life expectancy will be when he will return to Pakistan, now that he has said that. His only chance to remain alive is to be arrested and protected.

Now two more serious questions:
1/ Does Israel trust the ISI?

2/ If this idea comes through, is Pakistan going to isolate Iran over their nuclear program?
I doubt that Israel would have anything to do with the two-faced Pakis.
