All the pundits and other political has beens have been going about this for months now, but when the “jailed spouse”:http://220.127.116.11/search?q=cache:zDOa70nQzJQJ:www.satribune.com/archives/jan20_26_03/P1_asiflcases.htm+asif+zardari+jail&hl=en&ie=UTF-8 of an exiled Prime Minister also starts on about it then it means that Musharraf is losing his grip somewhat. Much as the Mush would like to, he’s opened pandora’s box and though he can kill all the politico’s who’ve popped out he can’t put them back in.
As an aside, the link above is to the “google cache”:http://www.wired.com/news/business/0,1367,41065,00.html of the article at the South Asia Tribune’s “website”:http://www.satribune.com/ as the Govt. of Pakistan is “blocking”:http://ko.offroadpakistan.com/pakistan/2003_07/pakistan_tackles_web_porn.html access to it. It took me all of 0.28 seconds using “Google”:http://www.google.com to access the site. Once they block Google, I am afraid that time might go up to a second. They can always just disconnect the whole country from the net, but that is really going to give Musharraf a bad image.
bq.. KARACHI, July 9: Asif Ali Zardari claimed on Wednesday that the Musharraf regime was on the defensive against political forces, and urged it to put its act together to decide who was the real ruler of the country.
Talking informally to reporters inside the Karachi Central Prison prior to his acquittal in an attempt to commit suicide case, Mr Zardari termed Gen Musharraf’s Camp David visit a “failure”, and said the deplorable terrorist attack in Quetta and the state of relations with Afghanistan, Iran and other neighbours reflected Pakistan’s growing isolation.
