The Taliban were not enemies of the United States in the 1980's. Saddam Hussein was not an enemy of the United States either at this time. I think
you get my drift. Things change and if history is anything to go by Musharraf will be overthrown and whoever over throws him will be a nuclear armed
regime. That should be something to worry about.
Also how can Bush claim, with a straight face, that he is spreading democracy around the World with his efforts in Iraq yet he allies with, and
condones, dictatorships? Wouldnt logic state that Bush is opposed to countries disliking America rather than the fact they are dictatorships?
If you are dictatorship that likes America then thats just dandy. You dont need to let your populace have a right to control their government so long
as you're nice to the United States. Wasnt that the philosophy Bush vowed to dump following the 9/11 attacks?
Lesson for would-be dictators. You can be a dictator so long as you stay on the United States good side. Make overt noises at solidarity and
cooperation and treat your populace with however much contempt you wish. The Karimov's of this World can gun down hundreds of protestors so long as
you remain a U.S ally.
