  • I am a Kasmiri ex Muslim, ,What brought emergency in Pakistan, I believe it is because all Muslims especially in Pakistan are bunch of suicidal crooks who are bound to join the dance to death and destruction in the name of crazy democracy and democracy, including President Musharraf, As a Kashmiri I am disgusted the behavior of all Pakistanis including Musharraf, to kill his own Muslims and destroy the osques, Mr Musharraf could have got some help from the Indian Hindu fanatics from AYODIA who destroyed the Mogul mosques that killed hundreds of Muslims in India, and Now President of Pakistan is no different than those Hindu fanatics in India,to please Musharraf’s big brother enemy united states, and Musharraf not knowing the consequences,, and reaction, and Musharraf calling them terrorists or radicals ,so forgetting that he is indirectly labeling Quad-e-Azam as radical or terrorist,,, side by side as I see all oppositions and lawyers act as bunch of brainless reactionary in the name of suicidal democracy that is bound to destroy Pakistan, and all what has been achieved good for and respectively for Pakistan to destroy it all,
    all Pakistani President as well as opposition must look in to the recent history, that America and its European allies have been using democracy as weapon to destroy their enemies ans especially Muslim countries, American was recommending democracy and perestroica in former Soviet Union with the help of brainless soviets opposition and reactionaries destroyed the strong Soviet Union who helped abundantly Islamic countries and Americans who instrumentalised Bin Ladin raised the slogan all Muslims to get together to destroy GODLESS SOVIETS WHO DEDICATEDLY HELPED MUSLIM COUNTRIES; but same Muslims turned against their helpers and friends, as Muslims cant differentiate between friends and enemies, this happen to Muslims always in history, that Muslims mix with their friends, because Muslims are red headed, and self destructive,
    I am convinced the Americans are using the President Musharraf same way (AMERICANS ) used and abused Sadam Hussain, to do all the dirty job to kill their own citizens as Kurds and Muslims in Pakistan, by their own President, as soon Musharaf will do all the Dirty things what America is recommending, ,Americans will not thank Musharaf, but get him in a trap of American style, that leads Musharaf’s death, by the hands of America, ,thou Americans are smart and united to blame the death of Musharaf on somebody else or simply at Bin Ladin, and confuse people of Pakistan, so that will be groung rule to initiate civil war in Pakistan, and take Pakistan in pieces back to the dark ages, in the hand of Allah that doesn’t like such deeds of Muslims and Allah doesn’t support crazy democracy to political suicide,

    yes America is unthankfully turning its back from Musharaf because Bush is playing dirty games with musharaf toget his help, and Bush openly supportind the process of destructive democracy in pakistan to distablising pakistan, , in a way that any Givernment taking over Musharaf be latt stamped as Islamist, to Bomb Pakis to back to middle ages , and by not letting pakistan to have nueclear armaments , because being Muslim country , and leaving them defenceless, as any other muslim country, who probably deserved that due to intercomunal disunity and hatred,, as brother fighting brother,, , America is supporting dedicatedly unpopular priminister in Libanon, , bur america will never a muslin government that is is compitant, even who have been exploited and misused by United States., To tell you American supports a unpopular Presiden in any given country where it wants, and America supprts any uprising to remove a president where it wants to bring confusion to weaken the state, where it wants, to make a country vulnerable , after using then and , throwing them as piece of rag, as they did with binladin , sadam, pinochet, marcos, polport, Hitler, Allenday in Chili, and many other hot spots in the world,, and now in pakistan, Ameican Used Musharaf, now they are using Bhutto, and lawyers, including Islamists , to distablise pakistan, to accuse latter Pakistany goverment , to give up with neuclesr weapons, , by accusing then islamists, incase they dont help genously american dirty wars and bombings on muslims, with the help of mad muslims..
