    Of course this is the guy that Musharif deposed in a coup. While secular (and there is much worse waiting in the Pakistani wings), not many were sorry to see him go. He was President when Pakistan defied the world and exploded its first nuke. Although given his relationship with the Pakistani military, he might not have had much to say about it. By the way, a special thanks goes out to China and North Korea for the development of the Islamic bomb. No wonder China does not support the latest UNSC attempt to sanction Iran. They helped build the first Islamic bomb; why not a Persian one?
