Musharraf Resigns

Posted by redsatellite on August 18, 2008

The Global War on Terror just took a turn….and it very well may be – for the worse. Embattled and much maligned Pervez Musharraf has resigned.

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf announced his resignation Monday after weeks of pressure to relinquish power.

Musharraf told the nation in a televised address that he would step down — nearly nine years after he seized power in a bloodless coup in 1999. Musharraf has been a keen ally of the West in the fight on terror, receiving billions in military aid from the U.S. and launching attacks on militant groups near the country’s border with Afghanistan.

I’m not optimistic. The cesspool of violence and terror in that nation has been simmering for years. Don’t be surprised if it starts bubbling over- now that Musharraf is gone. I’m sure Al Qaeda murderers got up this morning…..

praising Allah and cheering the resignation.
