Oh really. Kind of hazardous to his health wouldn't you say?
Hazardous? Damn near suicidal but a brave step ( or one neccessary to survive)
Now this is a positive development, although
I am not sure Musharraf is in more danger
because of it.
He has been a marked man since 2001,
and will be for the rest of his life.
I hope his security is up to its task.
This is a positive development, but the proof will be in the pudding. Let's see how this all plays out. Will Musharraf be able to control and bring on board the dissidents among his own military who support Al Quada? So far, he's been able to control the situation as well as could be expected. If what Musharraf has announced is successfully enacted, it will be a big plus for those countries actively engaged in waging the war on terror.
Musharraf is really on the hot seat in this war against terror. Wouldn't want to be in his place for the world. And you're right--his security had better be up to the task because, no doubt, the attempts on his life will begin again because of this public pronouncement.
Given the fact that Musharraf's efforts were greeted with numerous protests against the crackdown, one would have to conclude that Musharraf's attempt to rein in islamic terrorists is not supported at the grassroot level. Seems that those "peaceful" moslems are getting rather hard to find these days.
