General Musharraf suspended Chaudhry from his post in March, accusing him of abuse of office and nepotism. The move sparked nationwide protests that grew into the strongest challenge to the president since he took power eight years ago.


I believe it was Chaudhry's suspension and the
raid on the Red Mosque that caused the recent
instabilities in Pakistan.

Will the reinistatement of the Chief Justice help reduce
the violence? Or is it too late for that?

Here's some more from Time.com:

Lawyers across Pakistan burst into tears and cries of jubilation today, as Pakistan's Supreme Court restored the country's Chief Justice, Muhamed Iftikhar Chaudhry, whose sacking by embattled Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf last March sparked national protests.

Despite the elation shown here, there's a new wave of terror spreading across Pakistan.
Musharraf had no choice really, he's has bigger concerns after all..

A U.S. intelligence report this week concluded that Pakistan's policy of non-engagement in the lawless tribal areas along its border with Afghanistan has been a complete failure and allowed al-Qaeda to regroup. Washington is already ratcheting up the pressure for Pakistan to do more.

If Musharraf doesn't shape up, will we see US intervention in Pakistan?
