Is it possible that Pakistan is in bed with our enemies? Over the last couple of years it has seemed that the Bush administration has named Pakistan as an ally on the war on terror. According to several reports that i have read, Pakistan is trading nuclear weapon designs for missle designs with North Korea. (Reports below)
It is really starting to look like this guy Musharraf is not really in charge also, rather the Pakistani intelligence agency, the ISI. It's probably also possible that Pakistan will have an Iran-style revolution.
any thoughts?

Not sure if they are our enemy.. I know Pakistan and India don't get along and if that breaks out into a conflict, if we would get draged into into.. I hope not.
If war was cricket then we would beat Pakistan every time.. GO AUSSIES

Certain elements of Pakistan are in bed with the enemy and that is the tightrope that Musharref walks. The Pakistani military is rife with fundamentalists and if Musharref is not careful in how he deals with this he is toast. (there have been several internal assasination attempts) On the other hand if he is not aquiescent enough to American demands he is also toast. Sucks to be him.

Musharraf stole leader ship of Pakistan in a bloodless coup d'état. He calls himself "Chief Executive" which I once heard he chose for the benefit of western countries, like a corporation...go figure. He also has the Chief of Army Staff position which he promised to give up but failed to.

I dont think he is an enemy, but he has operated by less than honourable means to get where he is. And the US will support this because it benefits them. Considering it is a nuclear islamic nation.

It is good for the US if he stays and power and keeps it, but there are many islamic fundies in their intelligence agency, and they seem to have a lot of influence. He is also frequently a target of assasination attempts. If there is a revolution of some sort I think working with pakistan will backfire.
