Cut U.S. Ties to Musharraf

By Medea Benjamin

Musharraf's use of US funds to crack down on the country's democratic forces has led to growing anti-American sentiments among the nation's moderate, secular forces. The U.S. government should withhold assistance until Musharraf steps down and a caretaker government restores the independent judiciary, lifts restrictions on the press and sets up the conditions for fair elections.


They Don't Blame al-Qa'idam, They Blame Musharraf

By Robert Fisk

Weird, isn't it, how swiftly the narrative is laid down for us. Benazir Bhutto, the courageous leader of the Pakistan People's Party, is assassinated in Rawalpindi - attached to the very capital of Islamabad wherein ex-General Pervez Musharraf lives - and we are told by George Bush that her murderers were "extremists" and "terrorists". Well, you can't dispute that.

The Battle After Bhutto

Truthout's J. Sri Raman says that "Bhutto may have been Bush's candidate as Musharraf's successor or subordinate in a system with a mere semblance of democracy. But those in Pakistan and elsewhere, who stay loyal to her memory and do not miss the primary lesson from her martyrdom, must resist and rebuff Washington-led efforts to save and strengthen the country's military and militarists further."
