Formally announcing the establishment of a parallel judicial system, the pro-Taliban Lal Masjid administration on Friday vowed to enforce Islamic laws in the federal capital and threatened to unleash a wave of suicide bombers if the government took any action to counter it".
As we say in our family in times of trouble: Oh, shit.
Ironic but God help pakistan!
Sepoy, Despite its appearance I don't think this is about the Islamists...it's about a faction in the military establishment that wants to get rid of/coerce Musharraf. Would you agree?
I was rudely greeted this morning by that news.
The faster he comes to a political arrangement with Benazir Bhutto the greater the chance that he will be able to prevent a Gul & Co-backed regime from taking over.And unfortunately just like all our previous military dictators Musharraf is relying too much on the Lota league. A political arrangement with Benazir Bhutto can not work out without the help of the powerbrokers. Even is there is some settlement the agencies would never allow Benazir to take full control of the government or make any significant changes to improve current situation.
