    Wait let me get this right.... If we support him and help him stay in power against the wishes of the people we are wrong, and if we do not force the pakistani people to keep him with military might, we are also wrong. Must be nice to so neatly arrange it so we are always wrong. Remind me again how Saddam was a good leader in Iraq and we should have just allowed him to ignore his ceasefire agreement as long as he wanted.

    Your question leaves some unaswered questions, Good for who, the US or Pakistan?

    this is very BAD for the US. As RGS pointed out if we help him were damned, if we don't help, him we abandoned him. Musharraf has been a VERY BIG supporter of the US. He has done a great job of helping the US and also keeping his country in line. If not for him there would have been much more Al Quada strong holds and better financing through his country.

    I think in the long run this will be BAD for Pakistan as well, I think we will see a form of gov't close to the taliban or worse... IMHO....

    Too bad Bush didn't have the same respect for America. At least Musharraf is putting his country ahead of his own interest.

    An emotional Musharraf said he wanted to spare Pakistan from a dangerous power struggle.

    "I hope the nation and the people will forgive my mistakes," Musharraf said in a televised address largely devoted to defending his record.

    Hell, even if we impeached Bush, he would refuse to leave office and declare marshal law, he's a fucking nutcase, he cares for nothing but himself and big oil, the rest of the world and America can go to hell.

    I think it's too early to tell whether it's good or bad. I think it highly depends who is in charge now.

    But I can tell you I am concerned that a muslim exteremist could get power and what he could do with nuclear weapons... we aren't entering a pretty world if that is the case.

    No worry, Bush saved the world from such a scenario when he illegally invaded Iraq and killed millions of innocent people, remember?
    Nope because of Bush's land grab and the tax breaks for big oil and the rich, the world is now a secure, safe and prosperous place to live, everything is fine, no problems nowhere, just ask McCain.
