This is nothin'. Mr. Bush is not as bad as Pakistani leaders.
I read the news about Canadian foreign minister who turned in his resignation when he realized what a big mistake he'd made: he visited his friend, and by mistake forgot a government file that he'd taken with him. I was thinking that these people are crazy or what--because of this little mistake, leave that attractive job? Our Pakistani ministers would never leave unless they're thrown out by force.
Look at Pakistan's corruption--it's on top, and in corruption, the army is leading, in first position. There's a long list of names to keep the army of Pakistan at #1 position, but nobody is like Pervez Musharraf, because Pervez Musharraf is the most polished corrupted army officer Pakistan's army has ever had! He presents himself as a modern, and the only person who is best for Pakistan. But in reality he is not!
If he is interested in solving the Pakistani people's problems--like poverty, food crises, basic health, unemployment--he would never had spent billions of dollars to buy a palace on a Turkish island, to spend rest of the life there.
That was money that belongs to Pakistani people, who are living below the poverty level. Why does he want to spent rest of the life in Turkey, if he's a true Pakistani? Why doesn't he want to face the nation? Why doesn't he want to face the crises that a normal Pakistani is facing? He can't because he came into power just to make money and enjoy himself, not for the good of Pakistan. He made a deal with Asif Ali Zardari, who has been convincted of crimes, as every Pakistani knows; he likes to stay with criminals like Ch. Shujaat and Altaf Hussain.
We have to stop army involvement in civil government and society, otherwise we will see another Musharraf from the Pakistani army with a different name and different tactics.
